Irish O2 customers shouldn't feel slighted that other O2 peeps received the nav-enabled HTC Artemis way back when, 'cause now you all have the same goodness. Following O2 Germany's launch of the Artemis as the "XDA Orbit," ye Irish O2 customers should have have access to this beauty now or very (very) soon. Just like the German folks have, this appears to be the exact same Artemis with WiFi, GPS, 2 megapixel cam, Windows Mobile 5 and a trackball thrown in for good measure. We're a little surprised that O2 didn't upgrade the Orbit with Windows Mobile 6 and provide an update for existing customers, but whatever -- perhaps soon. Until then, pony up the €272 (about $365), not including VAT, for the Orbit should you wish it.
