Over at MSMobileNews.com they got the information, that the Motorola MPx220 is expected to hit O2 UK later half January 2005:
There are many awaiting O2's venture into the Smartphone world in the UK, well here's what we've heard, you don't have too long to wait! I am reluctant to put the exact date that I have heard as it is bound to change slightly but I am hearing that O2's internal system is reading around the latter half of mid-January! We shall see...
Better late then never and as I've heard, O2 get all the bugs fixed the Cingular version had before.
I boughht a sim free MPX200 with Â£10 of 02 airtime this week for Â£90 from thecarphonewarehouse. I paid Â£2.50 on ebay to get it to Smartphone 2003. Isn't that the best (darn cheap) way to try the technology. PS. I NEVER play games, but Jawbreaker is getting me going...

Its a totally different phone the new MPX220.. quad band, camera & flash, longer battery. It's not just the software!

 Exactly, as Borat said - the MPx200 and MPx220 are different phones! The MPx200 is the first Motorola Smartphone without camera, without Bluetooth and tri-band (only). Also it comes with less memory (which doesn't mean it's not worth the money you've paid).
