So from the specs...
This is the expected O2 rebrand of the HTC Touch Cruise? Nice; hope they've kept the branding light on the software side.
True to its word, network operator O2 has confirmed that its XDA Orbit 2 PDA phone is available to UK customers from today. o2_Xda_orbit_2_side2 XDA Orbit 2: now available from O2 The HTC-made handset was originally unveiled by O2 back in November 2007, but at the time the carrier would only said that the Orbit 2 would be …
It's good to hear that HTC is looking at Symbian and Linux. Windows CE/phone/Mobile should have stuck to toys.
Having seen the problems friends have had with HTC & Mio running Windows Mobile (CE) I wouldn't touch it.
It's amazing how many people don't realise that Mobile/CE/Phone edition of Windows has nearly as little in common with Desktop Windows as Symbian or Linux.
I wonder if they fixed the loose rotating ring in the middle. I've had the Orbit for about a year now and it's a good phone, but when it vibrates that ring in the middle rattles like a pair of wind up teeth. If you grab it and move it back and forth it moves about 1-2mm. That's really the only gripe I have with it, so I hope they've fixed that in the new one.
Just wondering if this will have the display drivers that all HTC's other Qualcomm-based phones lack? If it's a rebadged Touch Cruise, the answer is almost certainly no - so don't expect it to perform as well as the last Orbit.
IF it does have a 5mp cam (which seems unlikely) expect that to REALLY lag, without any proper video acceleration.
