Orange UK hasn't formally announced the i600, and the handset's not yet listed on the network's Coming Soon page, but its webpage is live nonetheless - it was spotted by a reader of phone fansite Coolsmartphone.com - suggesting the launch is imminent. The carrier announced its upcoming own-brand SPV E650 yesterday.

The page confirms the device's specifications: 3G connectivity, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, QWERTY microkeyboard, 320 x 240 display, Micro SD card storage, 1.3 megapixel camera with 2x digital zoom, and a 0.3 megapixel camera for video calling.

Orange will offer the i600 to both pay-as-you-go and contract customers. The question, though, is when? The handset has also turned up on Orange's French website where's it down as coming at end of April.
