O2 XDA Orbit II unboxing

Certainly not the newest of handsets and based upon the HTC Touch Cruise (HTC Polaris), we originally reviewed the O2 XDA Orbit II last year. At the time we didn’t get our hands on the full retail package and the review unit came to us unboxed so we didn’t record an unboxing video.

Despite being fairly old device by Windows Mobile standards the Orbit II remains available on O2 and is still a popular handset which seems to be evident by the number of questions that we get about the handset. We’ve also been asked about the unboxing video so we thought it was time to get our hands on the full retail unit and record one for you.

When shipped the Orbit II comes with Windows Mobile 6 but there is a free upgrade to WM 6.1 that you can download and install yourself.

Here’s the video for you:
