O2 delivers Windows PDA/smartphone
They really must be busy over at the Taiwanese HQ of phone manufacturer HTC. For in addition to T-Mobile confirming today it is going to ship HTC’s MDA IV 3G Windows powered mobile, another network has announced that it is bringing that model’s predecessor to the UK.
Already on sale in a number of guises including the MDA III (T-Mobile), the device will now be available to O2 subscribers as the XDA IIi.
The feature count stays the same though. So the XDA IIi boasts both GPRS and Wi-Fi, an Intel PXA272 processor that runs up to 520MHz, a 1.3 mega pixel camera, Bluetooth and much else.
The device runs on the Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition for Pocket PC, phone edition platform and offers all the Windows staples such Outlook, Pocket Explorer, Windows Media for audio and video and Messenger. The XDA IIi is on same now from around £179 with a contract, which is significantly less than the amount you would have originally paid for its predecessors.
