O2 Xda Orbit II released – phone reviewed, deals compared

O2 Xda Orbit IIThe Xda Orbit II has just been released and we have a quick review of this new advanced mobile phone.

The phone runs on Windows Mobile 6 Professional OS, with the processor running at 400Mhz and as a result the Xda Orbit II is considerably faster than the original Orbit from O2.

Other features:

  • A2DP stereo Bluetooth V2
  • Onboard GPS with the Co-Pilot Live7 sat nav application pre-loaded.
  • HSDPA for super fast browsing
  • TouchFLO which is touch sensitive screen software to make navigating around your device easier. Think Apple iPhone but less expensive 🙂
  • 3 megapixel camera
  • Advanced XT9 text support
  • MicroSD slot that takes cards up to 32GB!

All this technology could be a little unwieldy but thankfully it all just works in the O2 Xda Orbit 2 which by today’s complicated mobile phone standards an amazing phone.

iPhone sales in Germany standing at 70,000

Apple iPhoneGerman mobile phone operator Deutsche Telekom (T-mobile) has announced it has signed up 70 000 iPhone customers in the 11 weeks since 9 November 2007.

This figure doesn’t sound overly impressive to us as with a population of over 80 million and the hype surrounding the iPhone surely they should be way above the alleged UK sales of 190,000 🙂

Apple recently said it had sold four million iPhones since the launch at the end of June with mest of them coming from the US in the first few months it seems rather than Europe!
