As announced some days ago, Yakumo - a German low price OEM - is going to introduce the Mitac Mio 8380 Smartphone under its own brand later this year. According to the press releases this wasn't anything real fancy as Yakumo announced the same features - Mitacs first Smartphone also has.

However, in addition Yakumo also announced on IFA to release a Pocket PC Phone Edition 2003 later this year and the specifications seems to be not that bad - for a low price Phone Edition device! However it can't compete with O2's xda II at all!

The Yakumo omikron should be introduced in November this year for around 449,00 Euro without a subscription. According to the German news service it should also include a digital camera and is expected to work with GSM 900, 1800 and 1900 MHz networks.
In addition reports about a 200 MHz (?) StrongARM CPU as well as a STN display.

So far Yakumo only OEM'ed devices from Mitac; in the past they also launched Pocket PCs from Mitac; so I wonder now if the device above is an unknown and unannounced Pocket PC Phone Edition from Mitac? At least the D-Pad design - the joystick - could indicates that because the new Mitac Pocket PCs also use that kind of joysticks.
