British operator O2 is introducing its new Smartphone, the O2 Xda sp, a tri-band GSM/GPRS (900/1800/1900 MHz) Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition Smartphone device.
The phone comes with Pocket Internet Explorer, that allows users to surf the Internet and download entertainment. Users are also able to use the MSN Messenger for Instant Messaging or set appointments, manage contacts or schedule tasks and even work remotely with access to secure corporate data and email via Microsoft Exchange, all through Pocket Outlook.
The O2 Xda sp can also be used to store music, take up to 500 digital photos or shoot up to 45 minutes of sound and video footage with its standard memory (64MB ROM, 32MB SDRAM) and the integrated VGA digital camera. Users can install additional memory by using miniSD cards to store more photos, extra MP3 files and longer videos.
Connectivity options also include mini USB, Bluetooth and Infrared. Battery life is estimated at 140 hours standby time and 4 hours talktime.
The O2 Xda sp will be available from October 2005 in O2 stores or at www.o2.co.uk.
