O2 Announces Xda Exec Pocket PC Phone Edition
O2 is another mobile operator announcing its vesion of the HTC Universal, a Pocket PC Phone Edition capable of connecting to GSM (tri-band), GPRS, 3G (UMTS) and Wireless networks. The O2 Xda Exec is touted as a laptop replacement device, and it is part of the first crop of mobile devices to incorporate the Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system.

The Wireless LAN, 3G and GPRS functionality allows customers to flexibly connect to the Internet, access emails and work on attachments, as well as accessing a richer range of content.

Based on the Intel XScale PXA272 CPU running at 520MHz, the handheld comes with 128MB Flash ROM and 64MB RAM. Memory can be expanded through a SDIO slot for memory cards and accessories.

Its 3.6 TFT LCD supports resolution up to 640x480 pixel (VGA) and users can take pictures with resolutions up to 1280 x 960 pixel with its built-in digital camera with LED flash, while a second CIF digital camera is available for 3G video calls.

The O2 Xda Exec opens like a laptop, but its screen can be rotated and allows it to be used like a standard Pocket PC. It measures 81mm x 127.7mm x 25mm and weighs 285g with battery.

The updated OS platform includes an improved media player, Windows Media Player 10, making it easier to transfer songs, videos, and pictures between this Pocket PC and a personal computer. A couple of built-in speakers provide stereo sound.

With this new OS users will also find new mobile versions of Word and Excel, and a PowerPoint viewer.

Its persistent memory storage allows for more efficient data management, and gives users the security of retaining data even if the battery goes flat.

The O2 Xda Exec also comes with Bluetooth wireless technology, for synchronisation, file tansfe and use with a Bluetooth headset for handsfree communications.

The new device is available from 399.99 (dependent on tariff and subject to availability) for pay monthly contract customers and will be available in UK O2 stores, direct and indirect channels, as well as other leading distributors.
