It was one of the most controversial phones of last year. The X1, available exclusively through O2, was a budget clamshell with an integrated camera available free to the network’s pay as you go subscribers.
While it sold by the shedload TD readers noted some problems especially with its texting facilities.
Anyhow the X1 wil be replaced in May by a new clamshell handset the X2.
It boasts a better screen and camera than its predecessor, is triple band so it can be used in the US and comes with Java for downloading games and ringtones. It also sports a really cool OLED display on the front screen and is generally a much sexier handset. It will retail for £149.99 on pay as you go tariffs and will be free for subscribers who pay monthly.
