SPV C500 gets another alias: the Audiovox SMT5600

Orange SPV C500

It's probably best known as Orange's SPV C500, but HTC has licensed their diminutive little smartphone, which runs on Microsoft's Windows Mobile software, to yet another company. You may already know it as the i-Mate Smartphone 3, the Qtek 8010, and the Dopod 565, but the FCC just approved it as the Audiovox SMT5600, now with tri-band GSM and support for the 850MHz spectrum. (You give this thing one more name and it'll have more pseudonyms than Ol' Dirty Bastard.) Now that they've got the Audiovox moniker slapped on there is this a sign of an imminent US release? We're re-greasing our wallets in bitter anticipation.
