This will be my next SmartPhone - The XDA Orbit from O2. :)

It's not much larger than the Nokia 6610i, has all the functionalities of previous xdas, but more importantly it's also got a built-in GPS receiver. Just awesome. :yowch:

Other features include 2.8" screen, FM radio, 2MP camera and Trackball/Trackwheel positioning device

Man, that's a sweet, sweet device. :)
Would be the perfect upgrade for my MDA if T-Mobile released it on this side of the pond.

Is that another HTC built device? There are many similarities to my 8525.

UK only right now. Nice device though. I am very happy with the 8525... for at least six months or so. =]

Holy Crap! Very nice, I was thinking of going PPC Treo myself. I'm with Telus and my selection is small, altho a lot of cell phone carriers here have small selections.

This would most likely be a lot of money here, the Treo is about $550CDN before tax and no contract.

If it's "made" by O2, I'd recommend finding out who actually makes it, O2 just re-badge their own-brand phones, and should you ever need support, they're bloody useless as they know nothing about it.

The phone is made by HTC.
Almost every provider that sells HTC phones re-brands them differently though. Mine (the HTC Wizard) goes by the name of the T-Mobile MDA (which is how mine is branded), T-Mobile MDA Vario, Cingular 8125, Qtek 9100, i-Mate K-Jam, and probably a bunch of other names. :lick:

Good to know :)

I had one of O2s (overpriced) phones not long ago, and when I asked them where to get a data cable from, I had so much hassle to find an answer, in the end I had to contact the actual manufacturer of the phone, who also couldn't tell me due to an agreement with O2. Useless!

If you buy the phone itself, rather than via O2, you may even be able to get it cheaper (Unless it's a freebie on contract, of course :D)

All that aside though, just had a look at it, interesting device, wouldn't mind one myself :)

I am also quite happy with my 8525, but I am jealous of this device. I love the black, that would make my 8525 100% complete ;)

I actually like the dark gray and the silver wrap around on the 8525.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
