O2 XDA2i now on sale

15 posts in this topic

O2 in the uk have been selling the XDA2s for a few weeks now, but they have now released the XDA2i.

The specification of the two differs in that the XDA2s has no sliding keypad, but does feature a 1.3MP camera and a speedier processor.

according to the O2 shop site they do differ slighlty in specification. The XDAIIi has a megapixel camera while the XDAIIs does not. Thats how it reads anyway. But i suppose it also says that the email client used on the XDAIIi is windows media player!?

The xda-2i does not have the slide keyboard, I rang the o2 store in Merryhill today and its and xda-ii with a new rom and widescreen support, its not the same hardware as the xda2-s

I'm in bathgate in scotland but will be down in brum next week, thought i might pick one up when i'm down as i'm sick of waiting on the orange m2000.

The spec is :

The new XDA IIi includes an Intel Bulverde CPU, running 520 MHz (Faster than both XDAII & XDAIIS which was only a Intel 400 MHz processor )

It supports W-LAN (The XDAII did not. The XDAIIS did.)

Supports Bluetooth using the Widcomm Bluetooth stack, already introduced with the Xda IIs/III

It also includes a 1.3 Megapixel camera (The XDAII and the XDAIIS only had a 0.3 MP camera) and will be released with Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition for Pocket PC Phone Edition containing AKU2 which supports Windows Media 10 Mobile.

Sounds good. But for me there isnt really anything there that will make me turn in my M2000.

Rather surprised at all this because I'd got it into my head that the XDA IIi was going to be the Blue Angel but with improved spec. Seems I, and many people I know, were wrong. :|

And am I the only person that thinks the XDA II design now looks a little dated? Saw one in the shop and there's alot of case for the screen size. Isn't there?!

Personally I prefer the black blue angel to the silver one too. However I prefer Orange to O2 aswell. :D

I picked up an XDA2i on the weekend from Windsor. New contract on 200 minutes a month. £179.99.

I prefer this to the XDA2s. Faster, BT actually works reliably (both headset and as a modem for my laptop), wifi is better, sound is good and no keyboard to come loose.

The camera *is* 1.3MP.

Interestingly, the s and the i are now both E179.99.

I've tested several PDA phones over the last two months (ipaq 6340 / 6365, the XDA2s, Nokia Communicator 9500 and now the XDA2i), and this is by far the most reliable unit.

Do you know if I could buy it in London without contract ?

which is better do you think, all i want to use it for is watching movies and playing games and music, i like the look of the s, but the faster processer and better camera are also appealing, also i don't know if i'd use the keyboard, (i know that you can have t9 touchscreen with the IIi but can you with the s also, are you able to type t9 on the IIs??) i really haven't got a clue on which one to chose, ergonomically i like the s but i like the i's spec a little more, would i use the keyboard???? thanx i know theres alot of questions there in that rubble but i'd appreciate some answers,
