The new Xda Stellar is basically an O2 branded version of HTC’s ridiculously named TyTN II (pictured) which means it’s packed of handy stuff – a tilting touchscreen, slide-out QWERTY keyboard and Windows Mobile 6 for doing all those office things when there’s not a water cooler or meeting room for miles.
In general it’s a lot more office-friendly than Apple’s hallowed iDog ‘n’ Bone – there’s video calling and a business card reader along with now standard smartphone features like 3G, Wi-Fi and BlackBerry Connect compatibility.
The second it leaves the office the Stellar whips out a 3MP camera and built-in GPS with CoPilot Live 7 software making it more than just an accessory to your daily pen pushing. That serious-looking suit is stuck though, sadly.
The O2 Xda Stellar blasts off into shops today with our favourite price of ‘free’ attached. As long as you sign up to a hefty enough contract of course – there’s always a catch.
