Orange SPV C200

The French branch of European carrier Orange today rolled out the SPV C200. Standing in contrast to premium devices, the C200 is intended for bringing smartphone-class features to a lower price. Its candybar design offers only a keypad and joystick (rather than a keyboard) for control but is preloaded with Windows Mobile 5 for better Internet access and document viewing than the custom programs that often come with more limited handsets.

The Amoi-made cellphone also keeps features in check by offering features similar to mid-range feature phones rather than the premium additions of pro-oriented devices. Internet linkups are provided through EDGE rather than costly 3G; a 1.3-megapixel camera, an MP3 player, and six hours of calling time round out the features.

Orange offers the phone through its service for as little as 9 Euros ($12) with a two-year plan, but sells the communicator for shorter terms at a higher price. Its particular tri-band GSM access is likely to limit the device's use to European networks. [via Unwired View]
