O2 XDA Graphite Launched
British cell provider O2 today officially launched the XDA Graphite. Its bar phone shape belies the smartphone components at work: Windows Mobile 5 runs the device and supports both push e-mail and pocket versions of Excel, Outlook, and Word for viewing files away from the office. The Graphite is also a true 3G wireless phone that connects to the Internet through UMTS for both web browsing and video calls using the integrated front VGA camera. Bluetooth 2.0 and a rear 2-megapixel camera are also part of the package.
The graphite is on sale now through O2 and can be had for free depending on the service plan. The device was FCC-approved last year, but may require changes to see service in the US. [via Pocket-lint]
