So far known as the O2 Xda Argon only, today HTC announced the launch of the HTC P6300 (code named HTC Panda), a powerful PDA phone designed for today's demanding mobile enterprise environments. Sporting an over-size 3.5" QVGA touch screen, the HTC P6300 features a 400 MHz CPU, Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC Phone Edition, triband GSM/GPRS, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.0 and IrDA for truly connected data centric uses. The 1580 mAh battery should provide a talk-time of up to 8 hours.
Last but not least, the P6300 sports a 2 megapixel camera 256 MB of ROM which can be extended by SD card. In addition, the card slot is SDIO-compatible which means it can be used for accessories and peripherals as well.

The P6300 is the perfect tool for customer and service-driven environments. You can manage and develop applications with the robust Windows Mobile 5 operating system, edit and view Microsoft Office documents, go online and manage emails with ease.

From warehousing and fleet management to custom applications, the P6300 has the power, memory and functionality to be a top performer in your mobile business. View images, media and data with complete clarity on the sharp 3.5-inch intuitive full-color touch screen. Communicate with colleagues and customers globally and integrate seamlessly with existing IT systems. Improve your productivity with rapid processing, ample data storage and scale up memory.

A price or release date wasn't announced today.

Why on earth are they launching a device based on Windows Mobile 5 now that 6 is available? Have you got any answers for that?

The only answer I have is, that the P6300 is addressing the corporate market (to replace the outdated HTC Alpine).
The corporate market isn't looking for the latest and greatest OS versions but needs an upgrade path to make sure self-developed applications also works with the next OS and device version. Therefore it definitely makes sense to use Windows Mobile 5.0 instead of Windows Mobile 6.
On the other hand, great corporate features like Exchange 2007 support are left. So it's definitely a trade-off and I think offering the P6300 with both OS versions, Windows Mobile 5.0 and 6, where the customer can select from, would makes more sense in this vertical market approach.

But who knows - just my 2 Cents for the weekend...
