Following my earlier posting from this week - O2 Germany has started selling and shipping its latest Pocket PC Phone Edition now, the O2 Xda terra and is therefore world wide the first one which sells a Windows Mobile 6 Professional-powered smartphone (previously known as Pocket PC Phone Edition). Congrats to O2 Germany which has a long tradition in the Windows Mobile smartphone market and which was the first carrier world wide selling a Windows Mobile-powered Pocket PC Phone Edition (the XDA = eXented Digital Assistant also known as HTC Wallaby).

The Xda terra is based on HTC's Herald reference design and feature-wise absolute identically. It's featuring quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as W-LAN and Bluetooth 2.0. Since the Xda terra will replace its forerunner, the Xda Mini S, for sure it's also sporting a slide-out keyboard. Last but not least it has a 2 megapixel camera on board now. However, as said before, the Xda terra is running Windows Mobile 6 Professional which adds some real improvements to Windows Mobile 5 and the upgrade is definitely worth!

The Xda terra is now orderable from O2 Germany's online shop. Prices starts (with a 24 months contract) from 79.99 Euro. Without a contract (which isn't orderable online but available from O2 Shops only), the O2 Xda terra costs 519,99 Euro.

Unfortunately O2 Germany "missed" to send one over - so I don't have any live photos yet.

Cheers ~ Arne
