Orange SPV M700 3G PDA phone spied on web

France Telecom has the gen

HTC's P3600 compact 3G PDA phone has gone on sale on the Orange mobile phone network as the SPV M700. Well, that portion of the network that extends across France, at the very least. Orange owner France Telecom is currently touting the Orange-branded handset, which has yet to appear over here.

The M700 sports quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity in addition to 3G. It has a 2.8in, 240 x 320, 65,53-colour display, a 2.1 megapixel camera and secondary, VGA camera for video calls. The handset has Bluetooth 2.0 and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi on board, along with a MiniSD-expandable 64MB of memory. It's powered by a 400MHz Samsung processor.

It's show on the France Telecom website kitted out in white and silver, but we understand there's a black version, too, that's more in tune with the darkly hued SPV M600 released last spring - and which we reviewed here.

France Telecom claims the handset gets a four-hour talk-time from its 1,500mAh battery. Depending on the airtime package selected, the M700 will set French buyers back from €299 (£200). ®
