Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:58 CET under 08 - Reviews

Following O2 Germany's earlier announcement to launch it's version of HTC's Touch Diamond later this summer as the O2 Xda diamond, the German carrier held two press events this week where the Xda diamond was first time publicly shown. While I had the chance the get my hands on an earlier version already, for me it was the first time also to see the final look and feel of O2's latest Xda Windows Mobile smartphone.
Like the HTC Touch Diamond, also the Xda diamond will run on Windows Mobile 6.1 supporting triband GSM/GPRS/EDE (no 850 MHz support), dualband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA (featuring 900/2100 MHZ) with a HSDPA downstream of up to 3.6 Mbps and a HSUPA upstream of up to 2.0 Mbps.

I arrived in Seattle yesterday for this year's Möbius conference and there are some exciting changes and improvements since I was here last month: AT&T has added an unlimited data option to its MEdiaNet service for its GoPhone pay as you go plan.
I wrote about all this mobile data tragedy for inbound roamers last month when I was here for the MVP Global Summit and when I was hunting for a reasonable way to go online from my Notebook and Windows Mobile smartphone and the only option I found was AT&T's GoPhone prepaid service which, however, costs me around US$ 10 per MB (without using any dedicated data options).

While I was in Seattle just last month for the annual Microsoft MVP Global Summit, I'm already packing my bags to fly to Seattle again, this time for this year's Möbius conference which I'm happy to be invited again. I will leave tomorrow morning but these kind of events need some advanced preparation anyway because I have to think about which equipment I will carry. Should I travel light with just my HTC Shift and my Sanyo Xacti or should I travel full featured with my Fujitsu Siemens Tablet PC and my Nikon D80? In any case, I will carry some Windows Mobile smartphones while I will leave my Apple AirPort Express at home because the hotel, downtown Seattle has its own WiFi anyway.

Together with today's launch of the HTC Touch Diamond, I also had the chance to get my hands on a brand new, also just announced, German O2 Xda diamond which is the same device like HTC's Diamond but in a slightly different design.
However, it follows the same design principals by being thin and squarish but unlike HTC's Diamond version, the Xda diamond has a flat "soft-touch" battery cover.
Everything else is pretty much the same - including the black mirroring front plate and display bezel as well as the touch sensitive D-Pad.
