Together with the Xda mini S, O2 Germany also announced its latest Windows Mobile Smartphone which was also revealed in the latest shop flyer already.
O2 Germany will release the HTC Typhoon later this year as Xda phone which is O2 Germany's first "own" Smartphone (before, O2 Germany released the Motorola MPx220 only but never released one of the Xphones which were available from O2 Asia for a long time already).
The Xda phone is a quad-band GSM/GPRS mobile phone using the "HTC Douton" ID which is basically the same ID as we knew it from the Orange SPV C550 but running Windows Mobile 5.0 instead. It also includes Bluetooth 1.2 and IrDA as well as a 1.3 megapixel camera but no Wifi b (11 Mbits) as the HTC Tornado platform provides.
With an O2 Active 100 24-month contract, the Xda phone will costs 99,99 Euro, without a contract it will be something around 299 Euro but this wasn't confirmed by the carrier yet. A release date wasn't given but can be expected for something around October.
Last but not least, like with the Xda mini S, neither O2 UK nor O2 Ireland has announced anything similar today.
