RTM Mango Build 7720 Leaked On XDA

Posted by Richard Chao in "Windows Phone Software" @ 09:34 PM

"A poster by the name of longshot442 has posted a 404MB file which contains the official RTM build of Mango aka build 7720."

The RTM version of Mango carrying build number 7720 has found its way on to the forums at XDA. It is currently unknown if there are adverse affects in installing this build via the methods described. But, then again, that's what XDA is all about. If you are feeling adventurous, head over to the XDA site for the instructions. Or if you are the cautious type, download the file first (in case it gets pulled) and wait and see reported results from other then decide if its something you want to try.

If you don't mind a mere 2.8" QVGA touch screen and just dual-band UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA connectivity, then there are plenty of reasons to love the Xda Guide. Our pal, Arne, at the::unwired has taken some great shots of the device. Click for a peek at the gallery.

O2 Germany Announces New Xda Guide Smartphone

Posted by Paul Martin in "Pocket PC Hardware" @ 02:00 AM

"O2 Germany today announced the new O2 Xda Guide, its latest Xda smartphone running Windows Mobile 6.1 which will replace the Xda orbit 2. The Xda Guide comes in an O2 exclusive design and is running on Microsoft's Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. The Xda Guide is powered by a Qualcomm MSM 7225 CPU at 528 MHz and features GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA in addition to Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi b/g and GPS. The Xda Guide comes with a 2.8" QVGA touchscreen and sports a 3.2 megapixel camera, 256 MB RAM and 512 MB ROM which can be expanded by microSD cards. A 1 GB microSD card is part of the sales package and holds TomTom Navigator 7 (with maps for Germany, Austria and Switzerland). The O2 Xda Guide will be available exclusive from O2 Germany from February next year. A price wasn't given today."

The new Xda Guide looks like a nice device, especially with the included GPS mapping setup with TomTom. As Arne Hess notes above in his the::unwired coverage, it will replace the outgoing Xda Orbit 2. It receives an upgrade of double capacity for both RAM and ROM, as well as the 6.1 Windows Mobile OS and a faster CPU. While you can get the 6.1 upgrade for the Orbit 2 free from O2 Germany, the upgrade only includes Opera Mobile 8.65, while the new Xda Guide offers Opera Mobile 9.5. You can check out the original German press release at the O2 Germany site.

O2 Xda Zest Reviewed

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Articles" @ 08:10 AM

"I'm not going to beat about the bush here, I'll just come right out with it. I just love the O2 XDA Zest. I am fortunate as a WM reviewer to have a good selection of the latest devices to hand and the Zest is my device of the moment. I have an HTC Touch Pro, an HTC Touch Diamond and several other high spec devices sat gathering dust on my shelf while the Zest goes in my pocket every morning and back on charge every night. I've been trying to figure out just why I find the Zest better than the smaller flashier Diamond for example and I think it all comes down to O2 and ASUS having found the perfect balance of hardware and software. On paper the Zest is not the best device in stores at the moment, and it's not the prettiest, but it's just so easy to use (once you replace the SIP keyboard that is). It’s complete. The fact that O2 have launched the Zest as their first PAYG XDA as well is utterly amazing. £250 for what in my opinion is the most usable device on the market today? That's just a bargain, and to be frank, you should all go and buy two today (everyone needs a spare!)."

4WinMobile has reviewed the ASUS-built Xda Zest and given it a whopping 91%. If you're looking for a device that hasn't been touched by the hands of HTC, this may fit the bill.
