Great for media applications such as music, movies, and games. It also allows users to install great applications for business and organization. It can also be used as a Satellite Navigation system. It's a bit like having a PC in your pocket.
Check out the cool Smart Phone applications in Google. As for the bad reviews... I just want to say, when you buy a PC it takes some personal tweaking and your PC becomes a monster, and software is there to help and be used.
The only bad point I've found is with the SMS feature, as I've been used to SMS-ing with a standard Sony Ericsson. The one thing that rattles my nerves is the fact that after a word is written and you've noticed that the tense of the word should change to make the paragraph grammatically correct, on normal t9's you just backspace until you reach the word, and backspace once more and the word is selected, and it can be changed just by adding or deleting a letter, and if you continue typing it continues with the selected word. With the SPV you cannot back select a whole word, so you are forced to delete what you have to, and then try to type the correct letters and scroll through the t9 option, hoping that the combination you need to make the word correct is there.
That is all I find irritating!
There is one little technical flaw, but overall, the Orange SPV is a perfect mobile phone.
It is a PC in your pocket with a phone built in.
Enjoy, but be prepared to spend time installing applications and making it your own personal computer.
