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 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
