So this popped in today from CoolSmartPhone - and this is fantastic news from my own selfish point of view? Looks like they will definately be competing with TMobile's efforts?

Orange have announced pricing their new Microsoft Exchange Direct Push e-mail plans,
according to
this ComputerWeekly story. Data bundles will start at £6.50, giving users 10Mb of email. Medium usage packages will cost £12 per month for 30Mbytes, with high usage costing £25 per month for 200Mbytes.

You'll need to have a correctly configured Exchange
Server, along with an Orange M600 or an SPV C600, M5000 with the appropriate updates. You can then sign up for a data package to suit your needs.
I can't find any further information on this from Orange at the moment, so more on this as we get it.

And a big thanks to Gears at CoolSmartPhone for these details:
I've had about 2000 emails (ok, slight exaggeration) asking just how to set up the new whizzy push-email functionality after the Orange SPV C600 and Orange SPV M5000 Updates. Well, there's a rather excellent guide here at

It's not quite the same as
the Blackberry solution, where people usually only have to forward a copy of messages to some address (like or, this is full synchronisation with an Exchange server. You can, if you wish, have a hosted or managed exchange to make the process simple. However if you want to give it a go yourself then this is definitely worth a read.

Also from CoolSmartPhone - Compact Framework post AKU2 update
There's an interesting blog post here by James @ He noticed that after applying the AKU Push email update for his SPV M5000 he could no longer run managed software that was built by Visual Studio 2005. Compact Framework 2.0 won't install causing a major pain in the nads for developers. Fortunately James has now found a fix, so if anyone out there is having similar issues just click here to resolve them.

And to round it out I found a neat Wiki page over at Channel 9 that's devoted to WM5 and Developers, but it has loads of good info regarding Windows Mobile 5
