O2 XDA Venn unboxing video

O2 released the new XDA Venn last week here in the UK but it’s not a totally new handset. The Venn has been on sale for a while in the USA as the Pantech Matrix Pro on the AT&T network and is also known as the Pantech Mustang 2. For those of you unfamiliar with the Pantech or the Venn it has a unique trick up its sleeve in that it has a dual slide action with both a numeric keypad and and full QWERTY keypad.

The O2 XDA Venn


The Venn is one of the few Windows Mobile Standard devices available at the moment so there’s no touch screen here. It’s a fairly well featured handset though with 528mHz Qualcomm CPU,  128mb RAM, 256mb ROM and quad band connectivity. However, there is a glaring omission in my opinion, the total lack of WiFi connectivity is a real shame as this is something that’s become pretty much standard on most handsets now.

We’ll be reviewing the XDA Venn this week and will have the review online shortly, so for now sit back and take a look at the unboxing video below.
