Orange to release the HTC Touch as the SPV Elf?

Following on from our post about the HTC Touch on the Orange network, where Orange said that there are no plans for the device, we now have more news!

I’ve been pestering Orange for days about the HTC Touch, since the Orange VP said that the device was would be available on Orange from the 5th June.

I finally heard from a contact at Orange and the news is that Orange is calling the HTC Touch the (SPV?) Elf, and launch is not expected until mid July. The actual date is yet to be confirmed. However the device is only to be made available to consumers and not to business customers.

Still really weird that Yvea Maitre should announce that the device was already available and that the SPV brand name would be dropped yet neither seems to be the case!

I’m rather sceptical that the device will be called the HTC Elf though – historically devices on Orange have had numbers rather than names. It could be that Orange just don’t have a clue?!
