Well, that's indeed unusual since O2 hasn't have any operations in the U.S. but the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has recently approved a GSM Windows Mobile 5.0 powered Pocket PC Phone Edition which is called "O2 Xda Stealth".
The Xda Stealth is the first Windows Mobile device, the Taiwanese ODM GIGABYTE Communications is manufacturing for O2. So far, only HTC and lately Quanta manufactured devices for O2.
The Xda Stealth is a slider Pocket PC Phone Edition (similar to the previous Xda III/IIs aka HTC Blue Angel) but unlike the HTC Blue Angel, the Stealth is sporting a mobile phone look-alike keypad instead of a QWERTY/Z thumb keyboard:

Other highlights are the Intel PXA 272 CPU with 416 MHz, 192 MB ROM and 64 MB SDRAM which can be extended through miniSD cards. The device measures 110x53x22.5 mm and weights 150 g (with the Li-Pol, 1300 mAh battery).
According to the FCC, the Xda Stealth is working in the GSM and GPRS 900/1800/1900 MHz bands (but seems to miss EDGE) and the Bluetooth is supporting v1.2 only. But on the other hand, the device is supporting WLAN b and g. Last but not least we have a 2 megapixel with auto focus and video capture.

No word yet about a release date or a price. Also unknown is, where O2 plans to launch the Xda Stealth. In Asia only or in Europe also.

Cheers ~ Arne
