Thanks to VIAG Interkom (the German share of mmO2 - formerly known as BT Wireless), I had the chance to get my fingers for a lazy Sunday afternoon on a brand new XDA Wireless Pocket PC for an exclusive web preview including pictures and screenshots! Some stuff is still NDA, so please don't expect a full featured review but I'm glad to give you a first impression of this next coming "Uber Device" which will be a category of it's own!
So what's the O2 xda? Basically it's a mobile phone, or a Pocket PC? Well, it's both, it's a full featured Pocket PC 2002 and a full featured GSM mobile phone with GPRS.

Ulf! To be honest: I don’t know! As you might know Telenor left the VIAG Interkom joint venture with BT Wireless, therefore I don’t know if they will still work together but as far as I know they don’t work together anymore. :-( Sorry…

Any information on the speed of the GPRS connection? How many time slots will it support down stream and up stream? I realize this information may be under the NDA you signed...

Let me say it like Rolls Royce said it before with it's horse power: "Enough"... ;-) Be sure it will be a state of the art GPRS speed, for sure not 2+1 as the xda comes from O2 and O2, as a GPRS operator, knows what is requested! ;-)

As I wrote, it's a preview, therefore it's not for sale now because then it would be a review... ;-)
The price isn't given today and depends on the different local O2 operators I think. Also a question is if it is with or without a contract - IMHO.
So this was a technology preview of both: the O2 xda and the Pocket PC 2002 Wireless interface.

Two minus points : no built in bluetooth and too heavy.

Too heavy? Are you crazy? The Ipaq with GPRS jacket weighs 300gr and is much thicker!
And what do you need bluetooth for?
The phone is built-in.
I can't imagine a scenario where more than 10% of the users are in demand of bluetooth with that device.

Hi,

Will there be a function to change the graphics
on the phone interface? Like skins or something?
Or can I install Running voice GSM instead of the
microsoft interface?

Why can't they make a US version?  What would be so hard about that?  Will they?  I am hoping... This is the type of product that I have been wanting ever since the PocketPC came out.
