Summary: I got the O2 Mini XDA II s mobile phone for a bargain price off O2's website - £49.99 @ £19/month for 12 months. There is NO way it can be had at a lower price. So that is one up for this PDA phone. The performance of this phone is so slow, and it just freezes. Sometimes I feel like smashing it. But of course the correct solution is to hit the reset button, which is not ideal. Which brings me to the next point.
Pros: XDA and phone, Feature rich, WiFi connection, Keyboard
Summary: Had this ageing dinosaur from a sale. To answer your questions 1. NO need driver for the XDA II, just get activesync from microsoft, transfers mp3, clips, share the net, etc well 2. WIFI, get SDIO SD card, plugin to the SD slot, bingo 3. Works with Win 5 4. .exe & dos games works, if you get the symbian dos emulator to run games & programs. Runs just like a PC. I still have an underutilized xdaii mini, if any of u interested, I'm willing to sell cheap + spare batteries.
Summary: im really happy with my o2 mini xda II...but it stopped prompting any pc to set up a partnership so i cant install new stuff in it...plus i lost the companion cd..i tried installing activesync 4.5 in my pc and laptop but i cant access my mobile unit coz something is blocking the connection and i cant figure out what,its not the firewall, i checked...help!mail me please...email@example.com...
Summary: hey i have one of these phones but i need the drivers for it ... so i can put pictures and music on it... if anyone has the drivers for it would they be able to email me them and tell me how to do it :) it would be really appreciated
Summary: I got my XDA II a few months ago now, before the XDAIIi and XDAIIs came out. In short I'm very happy with my purchase, not only does it do all the cool phone functions I want but It also does a load of really cool pocket PC stuff. So here's Tom's list of fun things to do with an XDAII: Firstly try out http://www.handango.com, you can download a bunch of cool games and software straight away and pay online. I got Age of Empires and Sim City there.
Pros: Playing Sim City on the train while all your friends are stuck with Snake
Summary: Bought one a couple of months ago. Fully loaded - well happy, use it as a mobile office as well as a SAT NAV having loaded Tomtom Navigator 3 onto it. Its got the lot - email, internet access, Word, Excel, PDF viewer, a decent digital camera and obviously its a phone! Only thing missing is wireless LAN but the Active Syn is adequate for file exchange. I went for the buy it for £130 and go on an O2 200 package (£30 a month for 12 months).
Pros: Comprehensive, Good build quality, querky design
