Audiovox SMT5600 / Orange SPV C500 First Thoughts

I recently purchased the Audiovox SMT5600 through Amazon.com (The Audiovox SMT5600 is the same as the Orange SPV C500 device in Europe). Upon release in October the SMT5600 was strictly available on the AT&T Wireless network. But a funny thing happened on the way to the market -- AT&T was bought out by Cingular in November and now the SMT 5600 is nowhere to be found on the AT&T/Cingular website. However, this phone can still be purchased via Amazon.com, Buy.com and LetsTalk.com -- so we'll assume that eventually Cingular will feature this phone on their website or sooner or later kill it from their sales channel, which would a real shame as it's not a stretch to say the Audiovox SMT5600 is the best Windows SmartPhone available today.

iPAQ 2200 Handmade Exotic Leather Case Review @ PDAToday.com

There is more to a case than just its materials and how it was made. To make this reviewer sit up and notice a case in today’s sea of PDA cases it has to bring a little something extra to the table. It has to innovate and be original. It needs to have something that will set it apart from the legions of similar products out there. So what does n-Signia have that meets those requirements you might ask; beyond the fact that they are handmade and use exotic leathers. (Source: Bill Landon, PDAToday)
