O2 Asia, the Asian mmO2 subsidiary recently released its latest Windows Mobile product, the Xda IImini (also known as HTC Magician or i-mate JAM).
As of today, the HTC Magician is the smallest and lightest Pocket PC Phone Edition but running Microsoft's latest Windows Mobile 2003SE as well as it includes triple-band GSM/GPRS and Bluetooth (while W-LAN isn't supported yet). In addition it features the latest Intel Intel PXA 272 Bulverde CPU with 416MHz.
According to O2 Asia, the Xda II mini should be available in the following countries soon: Australia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam. A price wasn't given yet.
Yes yes and yes! I was supposed to get an i-mate JAM from expansys hk (nearest link I could find to the Philippines) but they kept pushing back the release date as well as changing the price... hopefully Globe (my carrier) will subsidize this hehehe!

It costs $1199 in Australia at Harvey Norman (expensive I know, but cheaper in comparison to the XDAIIs which is $1599 - I wish I was in HK... :cry:)

 Ouch, that questions hurts more than you might expect... :cry: HTC seems to have a busy time to produce all the Magicians for T-Mobile and therefore most other Magicians seems to be delayed or available in limited numbers only. While the hope dies as last - I have the feeling I won't receive it before Christmas anymore. :-( But I got the word from i-mate to receive the SP3i next week. At least a light on the horizon. Sorry for the delay of availability.

hi. i am new. so i hope i am in the right place. thinking about buying the O2 mini, but am conflicted about the OS, i dislike and distrust microsoft in any capacity, having been stuck with it all these years with my PC.... i am thinking - if not O2 - i might get the motorola V3 razor - i know, a totally different animal. should i even be discussing the V3 here? i would not mind some opinions. BTW, i do not have a stable PC with no backing capability - still looking to sort this out. maybe not a time to buy a PDA phone/smart phone? i am just going crazy with bits and pieces of papers and what not of contact lists and a very uncomfortable slow cell phone at the moment.

Has anyone noticed the O2 today screen in the pic?! Which is that launcher/plugin?.. Looks very cool.
