Following my last week's hands-on with the recently announced O2 Xda star, aka O2 Germany's version of the also recently announced HTC Touch Dual, this morning I found a brand new O2 Xda star on my door step, thanks to O2 Germany.
The O2 xda star is the sister-model of the HTC Touch Dual, featuring the same specs like Windows Mobile 6 Professional, triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as singleband UMTS/HSDPA up to 3.6 Mbps as well as Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and a unique 20 keys slide-out keyboard for easier text input. Furthermore, the Xda star features HTC's new and unique "biotouch" display including HTC's improved TouchFLO GUI.

Before I will continue with a preview (because it's neither the final ROM nor did it come in the final sale package), bellow some more detailed photos of the O2 Xda star:

While I haven't used Windows Mobile Professional/Pocket PC Phone Editions so far as my primary mobile phone, I must admit, that this beauty can change everything and might makes me using it as my primary smartphone. So far, I was way too Smartphone/Standard centric for several reasons but this device seems to be the best compromise between a Standard and Professional smartphone. At least I will give it a try now and put my beloved Standard smartphone into the drawer.

Cheers ~ Arne
