Mobile phones, Satellite Navigation systems, Top stories


O2 has taken the wrappers off its new XDA Orbit 2 smartphone, which runs Windows Mobile 6 and comes with built-in GPS and the CoPilot Live 7 satnav software preloaded.

It’s also got a 2.8-inch touchscreen, 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and works with Microsoft’s Direct Push Email technology for BlackBerry-esque email-bothering on the move. More consumer-friendly features include a three-megapixel camera, FM radio and MP3-playing capabilities.

What’s more, O2 is promising up to 450 hours of standby time and up to seven hours of talktime for the device. The Orbit 2 is available now, with the price varying according to tariff. If you’re a business user, you can opt for a CoPilot Live-free version, incidentally.
