We weren't sure whether to believe the leaked brochure shot of O2's next Xda handheld but now we've seen in-hand shots of the actual unit and can confirm, it is true. Expect something similar in looks to the XDA IIs (pictured).Early indications hint at a PDA smartphone of pimp-my-snack proportions, loaded with every conceivable caramel-topped extra. Take the movie magic 3.6in VGA display, 2GB flash storage and 2megapixel camera. Did we mention the surround sound audio, dedicated Nvidia GoForce 5500 graphics processor and 520MHz Intel Xscale PXA 270 engine?Wi-Fi's in there, as is the lesser-known USB OTG (on-the-go) for hooking up directly to digital cameras, flash drives and other devices.No word on phone capabilities but we're assuming it would be rude to deny this machine 3G, or why not super-duper 3.5G while we're at it? We'll keep our eyes peeled for firmer news from O2 itself.
