Orange has announced the availability of its new signature PDA, the SPV M500TM.  The compact format provides the full-colour, touch-screen functionality of a PDA, combined with a mobile phone and digital camera in a smaller size than traditional PDA devices. 

The SPV M500TM supports a range of mobile applications including email that enable businesses to work more effectively when out of the office.  The device runs Microsoft® Windows Mobile™ 2003 software for Pocket PCs, including Pocket Word, Pocket Excel, Pocket Outlook®, Windows Media® Player, MSN Messenger and Pocket Internet Explorer.  The device can also be used to mobilise existing business applications being used by customers.

Shaun Orpen, marketing director, Orange Business Solutions said: “The SPV M500 is a significant step forward for customers that want all the benefits of a Windows based PDA but with a smaller form factor.” 

“The smaller size makes the SPV M500 ideally suited for executives who want access to a broad range of solutions from email through to accessing corporate data while on the move. “

As with all Orange Signature phones, the SPV M500TM gives customers a unique Orange experience on their phone, providing them with a range of exclusive applications and services. This includes Orange BackupTM (which allows customers to store their personal and business data on the Orange network and restore those details when required), Packet Video player (offering Packet Video’s innovative progressive download service for smoother access to video content) and Orange UpdateTM, which allows customers to trial and download new applications such as travel information and news services. Orange Help is also included as an electronic user guide stored directly on the device.

Additionally, Orange Business Solutions provides comprehensive and dedicated customer support, ensuring that businesses can manage their device investment in a cost-effective and simple way. Among its range of services, for its larger customers Orange provides a full support and implementation service including needs-analysis and clear deployment processes and on-going technical support. Orange also provides access to phone trainers– teams of dedicated experts who are trained to help customers get the most from their mobile devices.
