O2 - XDA Orbit 2


O2 has been building its XDA range of Windows Mobile devices for some years, and the original XDA Orbit has just been refreshed with advent of the rather uninspiringly-named XDA Orbit 2. Exclusive to O2 as ...

For O2 customers the XDA Orbit 2 represents the height of smartphone capability. If you already use a smartphone from this operator, it might be worth considering an upgrade.

As you can probably tell, I have had a good time with the XDA Orbit 2, it has been very reliable and useable on a day to day regular basis as primary machine. The size is spot on, although the HTC Diamond may challenge that , the toys and specification...

O2 XDA Orbit 2 review


Matt asked me to review the Orbit 2 and I remember stating, ?Copy the Polaris review and put black?, but it?s not as straight forward as that. I have been using this device for 2-3 weeks now and it?s been fun having an old friend back to...

O2 Xda Orbit II review


Feature-wise, the O2 Xda Orbit II can't be faulted. However, despite the appealing navigation wheel, finding your way around the device using the touch-screen is a tad tricky.…

CoPilot Live 7 provides a great alternative to a designated sat nav device that will only be improved with the added Microsoft Live Search

The touch-screen is not good enough to compensate for the lack of QWERTY keyboard

O2 XDA Orbit 2 Review


Essentially the O2 XDA Orbit 2 is the HTC Touch Cruise, but if we had the choice we would rather go for O2's offering as they have added additional utilities and included a copy of the great CoPilot Live 7 software - which supports the GPS receiver...

O2 Xda Orbit II


Aside from the issues relating to the poor display and finish, the Liscio's music player and games are actually pretty good and suit the simple user interface.

It's very small and you won't find too many SIM-free mobiles at this price.

It feels flimsy, the general finish is poor and the screen is very low-res.

In this case, you really do get what you pay for

O2 XDA Orbit 2


I've had my orbit 2 for nearly a week now and I'm very disappointed. In general, the graphics are MUCH slower than my XDA mini S, which is over two years old. This is due to a well-known issue with drivers for the MSM7200 chipset and ATI imageon...
