Finally, the O2 Xda IIi (also known as HTC Alpine) - which was already released in UK last month and is going to be released next month in Germany - will be released in Asia also, soon. At least O2 Asia has the product-page up and running (even if it isn't completed yet), while it isn't liked from the front-page at the moment.
Nevertheless, O2 Asia already has the specification- as well the phone comparison-page online:
So far there are no information about the planned release date or the price. As always, the O2 Xda IIi can be expected to be available from operators and retailers through South-East Asia and Oceania.
Good news for everybody there since - IMHO - the Xda IIi is the best Xda today, beside the Xda mini (which I love size-wise but dislike because the missing Wi-Fi).
