Orange M3100 Netherlands Release

If you are looking for the M3100 review it’s HERE

Everyone wants to know when they will be able to get their hands on the Orange M3100. Orange UK are being pretty tight lipped about it. Even those of us with friends within Orange are struggling to get the low-down. However, I have just heard from a reliable source that Orange NL will begin shipping the SPV M3100 (HTC Hermes) from Friday (4th August).

HTC HERMES

Keep an eye one the Orange NL website SPV section for updates.

If the release date is correct then hopefully we won’t have to wait very much longer for them here in the UK!

There are a few websites (Direct Mobile Phones, Scancom) offering pre-order on the M3100. Interestingly though, none of the sites I have seen have got images of the actual device but are showing other HTC Hermes variants!

EDIT: See the follow up HERE

IE7 a ‘High Priority’ update?

Microsoft has decided to push Internet Explorer 7 out to your PC as ‘high priority’ via Windows Update.

Although IE 7 will be pushed out over Automatic Updates, people will be able to choose whether they want to install it or not, Schare said. Automatic Updates will first notify people when IE 7 is ready to install and then show a welcome screen that presents key features and the choices to install, not install or postpone installation.

Personally I will be saying ‘No thanks’ to the update. I’ve had a look at IE7 Beta and really didn’t like it. To me it was a really dumbed down version of IE. The only thing I did like about it was the ‘Tabbed Browser’ approach. However, a better alternative for tabbed browsing is Avant Browser
