The
  O2 Xda II was officially launched last week during the Microsoft Office Systems
  Launch held here in Manila, Philippines. The O2 Xda II that will be sold in
  Asia will differ slightly from those made avaliable in Europe with regards to
  software exclusions such as O2 Active UI.
The O2 Xda II currently sells for PhP48,999.00 or US$890.00. Incidentally,
  previous to the official announcement of O2's entry in the Philippine market,
  the O2 Xda II was being sold at PhP54,000.00 or US$980.00.

WOW !!  That's a rip off !!

In HK you could buy it at USD 841 w/out haggling...

I wonder if my fellow Pinoys could afford it ?

does anybody have an idea if SMART or GLOBE will be selling XDA2 or QTEK 2020... its much better to buy in your local area instead of abroad even its cheaper because of after sales service...

regards to all kabayans smile

hello jayson and  sectorlors...

where you able to buy xda2 yet?  m planning to get one... thanks to sectorlors for the advise... or maybe yet because of after sales service still confirming if globe or smart will carry this device...

Qtek & xda are the same device... globe is currently carrying the qtek 1010... the xda 2 is called qtek 2020..

yes. I know 50900 is to high, but buying the i-mate and shipping to the philippines will cost more.

I'm from Manila but I was based in Hong Kong for quite some time; and now I'm living/working in Thailand. The xda2 was released here and I was lucky enough to win a raffle of buying an xda for 31000Baht...that's roughly 790-plus USD. I would imagine that once a few months have passed the price would go down in Manila, then again the xda2 is not as easily competitive as Nokia mobile phones. But a price of 50900...more than 900USD, is pretty steep.

hi robson... 790 usd is a good price... the price here in manila now is around 48,000 or 872usd... price went down after a week ...   

what do you mean by xda2 is NOT as competitive as Nokia phones?   what nokia phones you may suggest other than xda 2..

hey dominic,

when i was still living in manila i was using the nokia 8850. in my opinion xdas are not as competitive as nokia phones; this means that the market structure for the pda-phone is not as diverse nor is it as fast as mobile phones in general. when the 8850 came out, everybody wanted one...yeah and i was a sucker for one as well smile not too may people would go for an xda; while as almost everybody (if not all) including the taxi driver right beside you owns a nokia phone. with this, i think the price would eventually go down because the market isn't as big as compared to nokia. it's the same here in thailand; the market for mobile phones is really, really big. for pda phones, the percentage is quite low.

and yes, 790usd was quite a catch. the funny thing was; in order to enter the promo i had to buy something from prada....so bought my wife a pair of shoes....from there i qualified for the raffle ticket.

cheers

robson

@robson: Sorry but what are you talking about?

You compare oranges with apples! The Nokia 8850 is a cell phone (even not a feature nor smart phone) while the xda II is a kind of smart phone.

The approaches are completely different:

8850 = voice centric

xda II = data centric

Sorry but I don't see your point here!

Boom

I'm too lazy to register

if i may but in,

i do not think robson is trying to start an 8850 vs. xda2 functionality or pda vs. phone thing here... what he is simply stating is about the market structure... that pdas are basically niche market, whereas cell phones are for masses, ergo, different price structures and mass appeals and the whole marketing jargons to it... why are PPC users seams to be so jumpy and so defensive...
