My new XPhone II

My years of waiting for a good Smartphone running Microsoft Windows OS is finally over. Till now MS Smartphones were lacking behind Nokia Phones in terms of ease of handling and convenience; they were a mediocre port of Desktop Windows.

In the last two years, after trying many of the new phones launched in India by Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, PocketPCs, I was more than convinced that as a Nokia user, it will be impossible for me to move to any other phone, other than a Nokia.  All this became thing of the past, with the launch of O2 XPhone II. Last week, I bought my own from Funan IT Mall, Singapore for SG$789 (INR 21300).

As you can see above the XPhone II is a black beauty. It is small, compact, weighs light and fits in your hand conveniently. It comes with a cute little belt holder that makes carrying the phone a breeze. The phone responds swiftly to all the commands thanks to TI’s powerful OMAP730 single chip that powers it. The XPhoneII features Bluetooth, USB, Infrared, HTML/WAP browsing, MSN Messenger, Pocket Outlook, VGA Camera, Polyphonic Ringtones, Speakerphone, Conference, MMS, Windows Media and more…

What I personally like about the phone is the brilliant colour display, its excellent reception and voice quality (after all a phone should work the best for speaking and hearing, isn’t it?)
