    Nokia 8800 and Orange SPV C550 arrive at HEXUS.net!

    As if this phone needs any introduction, its the new daddy of all phones, and we have one in for review, in fact its sitting here, right besides me, collected personally from the friendly folks over at Scancom.co.uk.





    Very little phone for the money, but you know if you want quality you have to pay for it, look out for the review of this special phone later this week.

    Then we also have another handset from Scancom, the Orange SPV C550 handset is also on review this week....





    I know this is a phone many of you have been considering for an upgrade, so check out the HEXUS review later this week and see if it helps you make your mind up!

    As well as the above two, the SL65 review, although a little delayed due to my stupidity, will be hitting the site over the weekend, hopefully

    I hope you are enjoying the new reviews of mobiles, here at HEXUS.net

    Matt.

    That 8800 looks so sexy I would almost buy it a drink in a bar. What kind of o/s does it run? My view of Nokia phones may be about to change

    The 8800 is a stunningly sexy phone, but like the 8910i was, it is behind in specs.

    Yeah it is simply mutton dressed as lamb - but still is lush.

    Trouble is, I would scratch it very quickly - purely because I use my phone so much.

    C550 is a nice bit of kit. Not worth an upgrade if you've got a c500 though

    Is the c550 going to have the same dust ingress problem under the screen as the c500?
