Those who do not require a full-fledged powerhouse mobile workstation like the Xda
Zinc can still enjoy 3G technology in a more familiar setting. The O2 Graphite
looks like a candy bar mobile phone and measures 109.5 x 46.9 x 18 mm only at a
weight of 105g. The O2 Graphite is powered by an Intel Xscale PXA 270 Processor
at 416 MHz and Intel Hermon chip for quick 3G data processing; comes with 128 MB
Flash ROM memory and operates on the Windows Mobile 5.0 platform with Messaging
and Security Feature Pack, direct push technology, and the latest editions of
Microsoft Office programs for Windows Mobile including Outlook, Internet
Explorer and MSN Messenger.
Match these productivity features with connectivity options like Wireless LAN
802.11b/g and Bluetooth SIG v 2.0, and you have a device that can really help
you upkeep productivity during work days.
O2 Graphite features a 2.2-inch 65k-colour TFT-LCD screen as well as a 2.0
megapixel camera with strobe flash which also allows you to capture
photo-quality moments, with a second camera on the front for video calling.
Mark Billington, CEO of O2 Asia Pacific, says, "Technology is
complicated, but your life shouldn't be. O2 devices are built not just for
style but also for performance, and of course, ease-of-use."
Graphite is defining a whole new category of 3G phones in our portfolio. The
O2 Graphite will appeal to customers who prefer a more familiar mobile phone
setting but enjoy the efficiency and features of a Smartphone. We pair the
Xda Graphite with 3G capabilities, so it can experience a smoother
web-browsing experience and join the 3G revolution and all the benefits that
brings. It's all about broadening choices and new experiences for our
customers," he added.
The O2 Graphite will retail at S$ 798 (US$ 520/400 Euro) inclusive of GST and a
one-year local warranty at early February 2007 at all SingTel, M1 and StarHub
outlets, authorized distributors and retail channels.
