Crossbow on Orange SPV M3100?

It was only a few weeks ago that the first screen shots of Microsoft’s new Mobile OS, codenamed Crossbow, were leaked on the internet. Now according to this thread on XDA-Developers there are HTC Hermes devices out there running the new OS.

These low quality photos, presumably taken from another camaera phone, appear to show an Orange SPV M3100 running Crossbow. This has prompted a lot of discussion about the likelyhood of Orange releasing the a ROM update to customers or supplying newer M3100’s with Crossbow pre-installed.

I think it’s extremely unlikely that Orange will provide this as an update for existing M3100 owners, this isnt a simple ROM update, it’s a whole new OS and would be subject to different licensing argreements etc. It’s more likely that the device shown in the photos is a test platform for the new OS.
