O2 Asia, an Asian market focused service provider of mmO2 (shareholder of European GSM and UMTS carriers o2 Germany, O2 UK and O2 Ireland) recently introduced their latest products for the Asian market: the O2 Xda IIs Pocket PC Phone Edition (also available later this year in UK and Ireland and known as Xda III at o2 Germany) and the O2 Xphone II Windows Mobile Smartphone:

"We are confident that O2 Xda IIs and O2 Xphone II will receive tremendous response from the public,"  Ng Kien Lock country (manager Malaysia) said after the launch of the products in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Ng said O2 Asia Pacific sold over 100,000 units of previous models Xda II and Xphone last year.

"Malaysian sales contributed significantly to O2 sales in Asia-Pacific. It was among the top three countries in terms of units sold," he said.

However, he declined to disclose the sales figures. O2 Asia vice-president (sales) Chia Eng Keat said O2 would unveil eight more models of handphone and handheld computers or personal digital assistants (PDA) next year.

Please note that according to my information, the Xphone II (like the Xphone before) isn't planned to be launched in the European market (yet).

Cheers ~ Arne

Hmm, UK has the XDAIIs, Asia has it, WHEN WILL GERMANY HAVE IT?!? Germany is indeed a big market, the devices is ready, the software must be ready, why don't they launch the device in Germany now? If you call the O2 hotline, nobody has a clue when the will launch it... You cannot even signup for a list to be informed when the device will be available...

[1] The UK does not yet have it. 

It is on the website as available, you can even buy it, but if you speak to O2, they don't have any in stock and have no confirmed delivery date (other than "any day now").

Guess: T-Mobile has an exclusive contract with HTC for the German market until a certain date...

[3] No, it's not exclusive (as confirmed by O2) but for me it looks like O2 isn't doing the mistake to release a half finalized software (ROM) only. If you check other forums where people reports about problems with their MDA III (GSM/GPRS, W-LAN and Bluetooth) I prefer to wait a little bit more but getting a mature device instead of a marketing hyped deice only.

Just my 2 Cents ~ Arne

[4] ACK - the Mda3 is so buggy only S&M freaks will like it. still i think somebody at o2 should kick the their testers buds hard enough to make the xda3 a reality in 2004
