Late last December, O2 Germany announced the upcoming launch of the O2 Xda Guide, which is planned for mid of February. Running on running Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, the Xda Guide (which is based on the HTC Iolite) will replace O2 Germany's Xda orbit 2. The Xda Guide is announced to come in an O2 exclusive design and is powered by a Qualcomm MSM 7225 CPU at 528 MHz. The design features quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as dualband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA in addition to Bluetooth 2.0-EDR, WiFi b/g and aGPS. The Xda Guide comes with a 2.8" QVGA touchscreen and sports a 3.2 megapixel fixfocus camera (but no front facing second camera for video telephony). The 256 MB RAM and 512 MB ROM can be expanded by microSD cards. Last but not least, the O2 Xda Guide runs HTC's TouchFLO 2D user interface instead of the more fancy TouchFLO 3D user interface.

O2 Germany ships the Xda Guide with a 1 GB microSD card which holds TomTom Navigator 7 (with preinstalled maps for Germany, Austria and Switzerland) as well as the device is shipped with a car cradle and a car charger.

Quite new for an HTC and O2 Windows Mobile smartphone is the so called "Footprints" button, which is also part of the TouchFLO GUI. Footprints lets you photograph locations, straight from the HTC TouchFLO application. If GPS is available, the location will be added to the information and the user can add some comments to this Footprint location (more about Footprints in an upcoming preview). The second application button which looks like a compass directly starts TomTom Navigator 7:

Coming next, a more detailed videoview. In the meantime, feel free to post your questions in the comments bellow.
