Just in time with today's expected announcement of the O2 Xda comet, this morning I found a brand new Xda comet on my doorstep, courtesy of O2 Germany. Just unveiled recently, the Xda comet is O2 Germany's latest Windows Mobile powered smartphone but Asian readers of the::unwired know the device already - it's an updated O2 Xda Atom Life.
Powered by Windows Mobile 6 Professional, the O2 Xda comet supplements O2 Germany's Xda trion (aka HTC TyTN/HTC Hermes) but unlike all the German Xda's before, this device is manufactured by Quanta.

The Xda comet might be one of the fastest Windows Mobile smartphones today. Sporting a super-fast Marvell XScale PXA 270 CPU at 624 MHz and featuring amazing 1 GB ROM and 64 MB RAM (which can be extended with miniSD memory cards), the Xda comet also features triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE at 900/1800/1900 MHz and dualband UMTS/HSDPA at 1900/2100 MHz with support of HSDPA phase 2 up to 3.6 Mbps. Furthermore, WiFi b/g as well as the outdated Bluetooth 1.2 are on board.
The main camera on the back includes a macro mode and supports photos up to 2 megapixel, videos can be recorded in QVGA only. The VGA front camera is used for UMTS video telephony but also supports self-portrait photos and videos.

While GPS isn't part of the hardware, the Xda comet also includes a RDS FM radio which can also be used as an alarm and also allows to record radio programs.

As always, let us start with some photos to give you a better impression how the device looks and compares to previous O2 Xda's:

Anyway, before I start with my review, I will use it for a couple of days as my main device. In the meantime feel free to ask your questions in the comments bellow I will latest answer with my review.

Cheers ~ Arne
