Someone at the Arabic Windows Mobile forum "" had some quality time with a new, so far completely unknown Windows Mobile 6 Professional device and this device already sports an O2 branding. According to the poster of the photos, this device is the new "O2 Helen" (sounds more like the code name rather than the final product name) but it seems to be clear that the O2 Helen is the successor of O2 Stealth.
Unlike the O2 Stealth, which was a 2.5G device, the O2 Helen is a 3G device and sports Windows Mobile 6 Professional, GSEM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS (HSDPA isn't mentioned), WiFi b/g and Bluetooth as well as a FM radio. Still unique for Windows Mobile devices is the slider design which features a phone pad:

The O2 Helen is said to have a 2 megapixel camera on the back and a 0.3 megapixel on the front and is powered by a Marvell PXA 270 CPU at 520 MHz. Last but not least, the device features 64 MB of RAM and 256 MB or ROM which can be extended using microSD memory cards.

It's neither clear who is manufacturing this device nor when it will be released but it seems to be one of the new smartphones, O2 Asia is expected to release later this year. If so, it must be either from Gigabyte, Quanta or Arima. No further information given yet.

Head over to to see more photos and get more information.
