Following O2 Germany's earlier announcement to release the HTC Artemis during this fall as the O2 Xda orbit and O2 UK's outlook to launch it in November as well, here we go with some preview photos of the O2 Xda orbit which looks slightly different to the standard HTC Artemis.
Like the HTC Artemis reference design, the Xda orbit is also running Windows Mobile 5.0 and featuring GPS as the highlight (together with a FM radio, which is also used for dynamic traffic information) but unlike T-Mobile's MDA compact III, the O2 Xda orbit also includes W-LAN b/g (something T-Mobile Germany left for some reasons). Other features are the full range of 2.xG connectivity with GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Bluetooth 2.0 (including support for A2DP Bluetooth stereo) as well as a 2 megapixel camera. The Xda orbit will also features HTC RollR (Trackball/Trackwheel combination) for easy viewing and navigation through the menus:


The full review is coming soon, stay tuned for more!

Cheers ~ Arne

Note that the orbit does not come with GPS software that may be claimed by other websites!  It clearly states in the manual that you need to purchase it seperately from your carrier.

Well, I can not speak for the UK but the German version of the Xda cosmo comes with a 512 MB microSD card with preinstalled TomTom 6 navigation maps of German, Austria and Switzerland.
Not sure yet what the UK is doing but I thought it comes with preinstalled ALK?

In the UK the Orbit comes with Copilot which if free on the higher tariffs and an optional £50 for the lower tariffs.
