O2 Germany's Xda Diamond 2 is based on HTC's original Touch Diamond2 the Taiwanese handset manufacture announced back in February during the Mobile World Congress. It features the same squarish industrial design, unlike T-Mobile's MDA Compact V which was also announced during the Mobile World Congress. However, while O2's Xda Diamond 2 is called Xda, it neither sports any Xda branding on the front nor does it sports any HTC branding but just a small, silver colored O2 logo on the battery cover on the back. Less branding isn't possible and quite agreeable, even if rarely today. While O2 is using HTC's original ROM build, without any further modification except that O2 has added some favorites, O2's Xda Diamond 2 skin is blue rather than HTC's original black skin.

All the rest is pretty much the same, including the mix of a grey metal front and a black glossy but flat battery cover which isn't featuring the original Touch Diamond structure anymore but looks like O2's Xda Diamond battery cover, except that it isn't soft-touch anymore. But the features are identical and the O2 Xda Diamond 2 also runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional and features a Qualcomm MSM7200A CPU at 528 MHz, a 5 megapixel main autofocus camera and a 3.2" TFT-LCD WVGA touchscreen at 480x800 pixels. At a size of 10.80 x 5.31 x 1.14 cm the device weights 117 g only, including the 1100 mAh LiIon battery which makes it a little bit thicker, compared to the original Xda Diamond.

As always from O2 Germany, also the Xda Diamond 2 is neither SIM-locked nor Net-locked and O2's latest Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional smartphone, which gets a free Windows Mobile 6.5 upgrade as soon as available, is now available from O2 Germany.
