02 Germany Announce XDA Glide

O2 Germany announced their latest XDA handset yesterday named the XDA Glide. Looking very much like the very popular XDA Orbit 2 and modelled on what looks like the HTC Touch 3G which we be reviewing early next week, we believe that this is the new HTC Cruise 09 that we’ve been hearing about.

The Windows Mobile 6.1 powered device comes with GPS, TomTom Navigator 7, Car Kit and a Mount holder which suggests (even to me) that this is primarily a SatNav phone just like the XDA Orbit 2.

Specifications wise we can expect it to have:

  • 528 Mhz Qualcomm MSM 7225 processor
  • 256 MB Ram
  • 512 MB Rom
  • MicroSD Slot
  • TouchFlo (2d we think)
  • 2.8 inch QVGA Screen
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • A2DP
  • Opera Mobile 9.5 browser

Among the most interesting features of the new O2 XDA Guide there is the footprint function and the dedicated footprint button. The footprint feature lets you send pictures taken with the built-in 3.2 megapixel snapper along with positioning data. On a compatible device, the pictures can be used for navigation and whoever received them will be able to navigate to the photographed location by a single click.

The O2 XDA Guide is about to start shipping by mid-February 2009, price tag still unknown.
