According to O2 Asia's redesigned website, O2 is introducing the xda II into the Asian Pacific market in November. O2 Asia already sold the xda before in different countries like Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and others.
Maybe that's not real big news - real big news for sure is, that O2 Asia seems to be ready now to introduce their first Microsoft Smartphone (after they've canceled the previous announced version in summer this year).
According to the information I got and the published picture on the site, O2 Asia will release the HTC Voyager as O2 Xphone! 8O
The O2 Xphone will be the same phone which is soon to be released from Orange as SPV E200 and features Microsoft Smartphone 2003, Bluetooth and a build-in camera on the backside of the phone.
The xda II will be available in following countries for US$ 860 (not
inclusive of local tax and duty):
- Australia: end of Nov 2003
- Malaysia: 3rd week of Nov 2003
- Macau: TBA
- Vietnam: TBA
- Thailand: 3rd week of Nov 2003
- Hong Kong: end of Oct 2003
- Singapore: end of Oct 2003
- Philippines: end of Nov 2003
- Indonesia: 3rd week of Nov 2003
