promised here is the second part of that O2 XDA II Exclusive wherein I was able
to talk to a friend from O2 who brought this near final model to the Philippines.
As I said, I was able to play around with this live unit and explored it pretty
Although the unit I previewed was only fitted with 128MB of RAM and 32MB of
ROM, I was told by the representative of O2 that it will indeed be fitted with
128MB RAM plus a sizeable ROM at 64MB, the reason for this ROM upsizing is that
they want to include more applications that will make the XDA II extremely useable
out of the box.
This XDA II was also fitted with probably the latest ROM version as it shows
in the screenhot above.
As it was mentioned in other articles that have circulated throughout the Internet,
the XDA II will be equipped with a 16-bit Transflective TFT screen. In addition
to that they also added a Brightness Level Setting panel which is far better
than the previous XDA which only had on and off as an option.
Other nifty imprpvements are the inclusion of a Modem Settings Option for setting
the XDA II as a modem for a laptop.
As you can see it even has a selector for choosing either Class8 or Class 10
The backup battery is meant to keep data intact while replacing themain battery
or when attachning the Piggy-back Unit.
Just like the previous XDA, Ringtones ca be loaded up by this utility which
searches the XDA for possible ringtones to use.
Below are more screen shots to complete the exclusive converage I did with
this particular device.
Price range? Expect this device to be priced at about US$ 850.00. Availability,
Mabuhay! ~ Carlo
