Orange SPV E650 and HTC S710 Unboxed & Compared

The Orange SPV E650 was finally released last week and since then it has proven to be very popular and is the device that we are emailed about most. In fact you probably wont find it at your local Orange retail outlet as, in most locations, it’s out of stock.

Both SPV E650 and the HTC S710 are based on the HTC Vox and are essentially the same device. However, I managed to get my hands on both so thought that I’d do a double unboxing video to see if there are any differences between the two.

A few things I would point out to anyone looking to buy an Orange SPV E650.

  • The neither device has built in GPS. We had several emails this week from people having just purchased an E650 and being disapointed to learn that the GPS isn’t there.
  • Orange have removed Windows Live Messenger from the E650. This is because they are planning to launch their own IM service later this year. The HTC S710 has Messenger left intact.
  • You can download the full length video, in higher res, from HERE or if you prefer to use YouTube you can see the video, on two parts, HERE (Pt1) and HERE (Pt2).

    The HTC S710 is now available to buy from Clove Technology. Thanks once again to Clove for supplying the S710 for review, and to Russell for letting me borrow his brand new E650 as Orange have yet to find us one!
