Following O2 Germany's earlier announcement to launch it's version of HTC's Touch Diamond later this summer as the O2 Xda diamond, the German carrier held two press events this week where the Xda diamond was first time publicly shown. While I had the chance the get my hands on an earlier version already, for me it was the first time also to see the final look and feel of O2's latest Xda Windows Mobile smartphone.
Like the HTC Touch Diamond, also the Xda diamond will run on Windows Mobile 6.1 supporting triband GSM/GPRS/EDE (no 850 MHz support), dualband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA (featuring 900/2100 MHZ) with a HSDPA downstream of up to 3.6 Mbps and a HSUPA upstream of up to 2.0 Mbps.

Furthermore, the Xda diamond sports Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi b/g, a FM radio, a G-sensor, 192 MB RAM, 256 MB ROM and 4 GB internal memory. So far, that's pretty much the same HTC's Touch Diamond is. The biggest, and most likely only different is the battery cover where O2 Germany isn't using HTC's diamond shaped battery cover but it's own flat soft-touch design:







The O2 Xda diamond is expected to be available from late June. With a 24 month contract, it will be available for 99 Euro. Without a contract it should be available for something around 549 Euro.

Cheers ~ Arne
