O2 Xda Guide is a Windows Mobile Pro 6.1 smartphone, known as the replacement for Xda Orbit 2, a handset that rocked the German market. O2 Xda Guide will be launched in mid February and packs a very interesting “Footprints” feature, which is another name for geotagging.
The new O2 Xda device comes with a 2.8 inch 320 x 240 touchscreen display and support for GSM/GPRS, EDGE GSM (850/900/1800/1900 MHz), UMTS, HSDPA and HSUPA (2100 MHz). Guide bundles a 1GB microSD card with TomTom Navigator 7 software onboard with the maps of Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Predictably enough, the smartphone includes a GPS sensor, a 528 MHz Qualcomm CPU, 256 MB RAM, 512MB onboard memory and a microSD slot. The specs list also includes a 3.2 megapixel camera, WiFi and Bluetooth 2.0.
The “Footprints” button is integrated in the TouchFLO interface and it allows you to take photos of the places you visit and add information/comments to them plus the location where they were taken.
