In so doing it helps maintain Orange’s position as arguably the premier Windows Smartphone provider in the UK. The SPV C550 gives away its music playing pretensions immediately, thanks to four comparatively large buttons that sit above the number pad. From left to right these are marked with icons for back, pause/play, forward and a musical notes symbol. By default pressing the last of these launches Orange’s Music Player, designed to help you download tunes from Orange’s online service and then play them on the C550. You can change the setting so that this button launches the Windows Media Player instead, by going to the Settings area, choosing Button Settings and making your tweak.

Although, I would think it's appeal is limited since it runs Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition and version 5.0 is due out shortly. If you can't wait, or don't need some of the extra features that version 5 offers, then you'll want to check out this review. :)
