EXCLUSIVE: O2 Germany to release the HTC Hermes Pocket PC Phone Edition also

I've just received an interesting anonymous E-Mail with some even more (unfortunately grainy) the::unwired exclusive (as the mailer said) photos inside which shows an O2 Xda labeled HTC Hermes!
I mean it was - more or less - clear that O2 is also going to launch this UMTS beauty but it wasn't confirmed as of today. Since the keyboard shows a QWERTZ layout, I expect it's an O2 Germany Hermes (and the E-Mail hasn't mentioned anything about O2 UK).
Also it shows the two extra Hermes buttons, the Start and OK button, I already photographed back on CeBIT:

So here we go, the "O2 Hermes" seems to become true. A name wasn't mentioned yet nor an estimated price. However, the sender said the Xda version of the Hermes is expected to be available Q3.

Cheers ~ Arne

Any news on whether o2 UK will release this? If so when?

Do you think the prices will probably be similar to what the o2 XDA Mini S was given (£79.99 to beging with, falling to £49.99. Prices varied on upgrade)?

I hope o2 UK will release it! Any news on an o2 UK release date?

And to the person above me, Orange are releasing it as the M3100. I dont know, but they'll prob plan fo a Christmas time release, but they usually get delay by about a month, which is what happened to my C600.
