O2 XDA Guide

As a partner of HTC, O2 has been often a convincing performance. Because the operator from Munich was mostly ahead of the big competitors from Bonn and Düsseldorf with new HTC devices on the market. Sometimes he took interesting devices exclusively in the offer, but always under the own brand of O2 XDA.

This also applies to the XDA Guide, which is available in Austria and Switzerland with other navigation application and slightly different software configuration as the HTC Touch Cruise.

The O2 XDA guide integrates the phone with mobile Internet, multimedia applications, basic office functions and a navigation system for 479 euros without a contract in one device. It goes without saying that this compromise inevitable.

As a table chocolate

At the expense of size is barely functional integration in any case: with 102 x 53 mm footprint 15 millimetres in height the XDA guide belongs to the more compact, but not too shallow representatives of its kind. The weight also gives no cause for criticism, the 106 grams no longer burden the bag than a bar chocolate including packaging.

The small package was achieved of course without a physical keyboard. This is the Guide for users who require your Smartphone in the first place for the active written communication, not the first choice.

There are the various forms of virtual keyboards and handwriting recognizers available for composing E-mail, SMS or other text after all. The many ways can confuse the novice, but with selecting a QWERTY-keyboard and stylus trailer come just to train like T9 specialists who like to tap with your finger directly on the touch screen.

HTC-touch interface and 5-way Naviknopf

Just when the sticky keys, the Guide benefits from the HTC-touch interface. On very many functions it has access with 5-way navigation button and finger on the touch screen, the pin can remain in its holder.

This contributes inserted icon bar at the bottom of the screen that gives access to more than a dozen categories. About the most important contacts and the most commonly used programs are freely configurable.

When so much of praise of the guide have to take himself but also criticism: right and left sit up next to the 5-way button, which moreover has a rotate function, quick launch buttons for the GPS units and footprints from Google.

On other PDA phones, mostly two sit soft keys and also including often home – and OK – or back buttons at this point. And this often required buttons already missed the testers.

Hardware and software

Little cause for criticism is the hardware. Well, the display could be resolved later. But for navigation, where quick overview at a glance is asked, once enough. However, the speaker in fair cars might have a little more power.

The GPS receiver provides a good service in conjunction with A GPS, even pedestrian can refer relatively well with the new XDA – a decision that certainly does not apply to on every GPS units.

The supplied TomTom Navigator 7 software has been in the connecttest well found, a wheel retainer, a cigarette lighter power cable and a 1 GB MicroSD card with maps of Germany, Austria and the Switzerland round off the facilities.

Yet the radio characteristics of the HSDPA device are language quality and more at a high level. The touch cruise supports the fast data download up to 7.2 Mbit/s, as far as the network is this. By the way, he sees itself also on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. On memory, 512 MB ROM are available, of which about 400 MB are available for free.

The software facilities exceeds even the level usual Windows Mobile with Mobile Office applications and Outlook features. So, in addition to the already mentioned footprints by Google, a PDF-reader from Adobe and the Opera Mobile browser is installed. Boredom on trips with the O2 XDA guide is no longer an issue.
