i would you like to XDA IIi,i am in pakistan how do i get one?
i waiting for your reply.
If anyone can tell me which one is the best, I want to buy P900 or this think. Please help me I confused to make decision
Have been using the O2 XDA II for over a year now and have been totally satisfied. Of course batt has always been a problem but aside from that this is such a convenient PPC I would strongly recommend.
trying to make a purchasing decision regarding pda'a
I have heard of this O2 XDA Ii.
The question want answered is because it is a phone/pda combined those this make email and internet connection easier. I have other Pda that were not combined with a phone and struggle to get it connected is unbearable.
If you have your own opinions pos or neg tell me about them,
also if you would recommened any other pda/phone combination
hello fellow xda2 users!
i had my phone just a month ago. so far I think its great, I can do many things with it, except of course for the perennial problem we all have "the ever ever short lived battery!"

hey dude, i think the good about this phone is the software. i can have so many software installed, eg maps, scientific calculater and chinese text input. i can save money in chinese text, about 5 times cheaper. i save a couple of my favorite karaoke and when i am on the road, i can song along.
yes the speaker is not so good, but i have bluetooth. there is this german software that automatically turn on your bt when calls are coming in and going out. (it is slower as searching needed) but it save batt life.
what do you know. the older chinese input cannot be installed in the 2003se.( dopod 818/ mini, nor xda2i)
i dun have to bring along a street directory anymore. I am in singapore but i dun even need to buy a map when i visit china.
for function, this phone is definitely a must, but the neg is the low battary life.
the size is also too big. one thing i hate about xda is their service in singapore, the phone accessaries will not be avaliable for sale once a newer model is launch.
currently the xda2 cant install some newer games in the market, but it dun affect me as i would rather carry a gba sp if i really wants to play game.
Do you know how to send the ringtone or graphic via bluetooth to another phone?
this thing sucks.
I had an xda 1 and read all the reviews about how awesome the xda 2 is and how much better. it uses the same software as the xda 1 so it isn't any different there, just as slow, the hand writing regognition is terrible, the camera is a joke, and the phone reception is even worse. I use a the junk phone my phone service people gave me free for opening a contract when I don't feel like waitng 10 minutes for the xda 2 to decide that it has reception. If I'm in a place I know has service I need to tell it to search before it figures it out. I bought this thing thinking it was an improved xda 1, the bluetooth is good for about 30 minutes of talk then the battery is toast. not to mention it's enourmous with any kind of protective case, without a case it slides into a front pocket smoothly but the thing is very slick in your hand and would be easy to drop if one weren't extremely careful --
I did spend some pocket change for software off a website that allows the whole screen to turn into a keyboard that you can type on using 2 thumbs which makes data entry very fast and easy, I highly recommend it- it beats the heck out of using the stylus and pecking in one letter at a time or trying the transcriber and being insulted by it's translations. A storage card is an absolute must if you plan to use the device whilst away from your computer for a couple days, then if it tanks while on the road you can reload all the info, settings and all, without needing your computer or 2 hours with customer support so you can check email.
the calculator is a good tool and the large display is easy to view and read once you know your way around, the way the contacts interacts with the phone dialing is convenient.
I guess I am waiting for something better to come around and i'm sure I paid too much for this thing...
My xda is impressive there's no doubt. Its a phone. It links into MS Outlook and keeps all my contacts/ appointments up to date. I have Excel and Word and I can make out quotes while Polly does the driving. I can then Bluetooth to the PC and print it or I can email it directly from the phone. On holiday I can do anything I'd do in the office. It takes pictures and movies. I can watch a full length feature film on the little 3in x 2 in screen.
Where It falls down is all the stupid things it does all by it's self. The big screen gives the battery a real hammering. The xda is covered in buttons and the touch screen. When you pick the thing up, you accidently start the camera, open Excel and connect to the internet. Grrrr. To overcome this you can lock off the screen and all the buttons untill you press the activate button, problem solved. Untill you get a text message. Then the thing springs to life in your pocket. Well you thought pocket dialing was a problem. With and xda you can order a new laptop from ebuyer, take 29 photos of the inside of your pocket, make several audio recordings of pocket noises, get a hot date and a life times supply of viagra without even knowing it. And another thing. With a low battery the last thing you want to do is keep switching the thing on and risk loosing all your data. What does it do? yup. It switches on the screen to tell you the battery is low, and it will keep doing that every 10 minutes.
The thing is not well though out. The hardware is ok. The software inept. Another 2 or three years and they will be much better I'm sure.
It also plays MP3s
You can operate the telly with it.
I back up my work files onto it via bluetooth.
It plays amazing little games. yawn!
It reads your hand writing, not just printed letters. Proper double writing. Like wot they taught you at sckool. Now that is amazing, because I can't read my own writing an hour after I've written it.
You'll never use it when your driving, which is good. You can't get out your pocket when your sitting down and you definately need both hands and your reading glasses to make any calls.
Anyone still awake
All the brilliant stuff it does yet it won't let you cut a telephone number out of a text message and paste it into the phone. Hopeless!
My contract's up in Febuary and I'll stick it on ebay.
Did I mention the software lockups and rebooting problem.
But it is great. I love it. I hate it, I love it, I hate it.
If you get one you will need to file your index finger to sharp point as you will loose the three little pen thingys within a week.
best handset ive ever had. simply cannot live without it now. excellent software and great bright screen.
**Battery life sucks! I had to buy a spare battery and have to rotate the batteries each day
**1st Rom version v.unreliable.loses everything on the phone.
**ringtone selection absolutely appalling! and very difficult to get new ones.
A good handset - worth the problems
