APPROVAL: O2 Xda Denim Windows Mobile Smartphone clears FCC

We have seen the O2 Windows Mobile 6 Professional smartphone code-named "Helen" first time back in June and as the FCC recently unveiled, it's now called "O2 Xda Denim".
Manufactured by Taiwanese Gigabyte, the Xda Denim is O2's latest Windows Mobile smartphone, featuring Windows Mobile 6 Professional and therefore sports a 2.6" touch screen, displaying 65K colors at 240 x 320 pixel. Even more interesting is the slider design and the location of the D-Pad. The 12 key phone pad is between the screen (top) and D-Pad (bottom) and hides if closed which seems to make this device pretty compact:


Other features of the O2 Xda Denim are triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE (no 850 MHz support) and singleband (2100 MHz) UMTS/HSDPA as well as Bluetooth 2.0 and WiFi b/g. The Xda Denim is powered by a Marvell PXA270 CPU at 520 MHz and features 256 MB ROM and 64 MB RAM which can be extended using microSD memory cards.
On the back, it's featuring a 2 megapixel camera for photos and videos; on the front it has a QVGA camera for UMTS video telephony. At a size of 115 × 55.8 × 18.2 mm the device weights 150 g.

It's not yet known where and when the device is released but a release in Asia and Australia through O2 Asia is most likely. It's unclear if it also comes to O2 Europe or if it's going to hit any other networks as well.

Cheers ~ Arne

1) When will O2 announce this phone ?

2) When will it be available in Singapore ?

While I have no confirmed information, I think we can expect a launch soon. O2 Asia is pretty fast with releasing their devices - if it is released after all the rumored trouble.
If it is released, I expect Singapore to be one of the first markets to get it!

Here's another question


Are we able to use the numeric keys to type alphabets in a SMS ? We really hope it doesn't behave like O2 Stealth


Please advice

Since I don't have any first hand experiences yet I can onlay speculate. I would say no but maybe Gigabyte was able to tweak Windows Mobile to enable it. But that's definitely a good point, would love to see it as well!

Well. go to this link :
https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/prod/oet/form … or_pdf=pdf

Proceed to Page 7, look at No : 10, it says : "You can use the numeric keypad to dial numbers or input text."


Does this means that we are able to type alphabet in a SMS ?

Hi Mr.Foo

Yes, we have space key which is "0", which means we can type SMS using the numeric keypad

I don' t know when will it be on the market.
It depends on O2's decision.
Maybe you can write to O2 in Singapore to ask
