AsusTek recently got an FCC approval for a new device, the Taiwanese ODM is manufacturing for O2. A new device? Not really because if you compare the O2 Xda Graphite to the recently FCC approved Vodafone VDA IV you will notice both devices looks like twins.
However, while Vodafone left the camera in favor of addressing the business market, O2 has added a 2 megapixel camera to its AsusTek version (but lacks a front facing video telephony camera).
Other features are Windows Mobile 5.0 for Smartphone, single UMTS and triband GSM/GPRS support as well as Bluetooth 2.0 but lacks and W-LAN b/g. Featuring an Intel PXA270 CPU at 416 MHz the O2 Xda Graphite includes 64 MB RAM and 128 MB ROM which can be extended via microSD card.
According to the manual, the Xda Graphite measures 109.5x46x18mm and weights 100 grams only. It's announced to has ha standby time of 275 hours sporting a talk time of 5 hours!

Neither a release date nor a price was announced yet and it's also not clear which O2 subsidiaries (O2 Asia and/or O2 Europe) will carry this device.

UPDATE: Looks like the published manual isn't complete (yet) since the Xda Graphite is supporting W-LAN b/g (according to the additional published SAR report) and I've checked the other photos on the FCC site and it looks like the device has a front facing camera, most likely for UMTS video telephony; also something which isn't mentioned in the specs and manual.
Either the device, the FCC got for testing is featuring all this extra stuff but the O2 version will exclude it or AsusTek has forgotten to mention it in the user guide.

Cheers ~ Arne
