Up close with the O2 Xda Graphite

Chris Ziegler

Last time we checked in with O2's ASUS-sourced Xda Graphite, it had just cleared the FCC's hurdles; now we've got some hands-on teaser shots fresh from Dubai's GITEX show to rub some more salt in our "not coming to America" wounds. The Windows Mobile Smartphone does the whole candybar thing in style, sporting 3G data (somewhat unusual for an ASUS device) and a front-facing camera to match, WiFi, a 2 megapixel primary shooter, 128MB of ROM, 64MB of RAM, and a heavyweight PXA270 XScale core humming along at 416MHz. We haven't spotted a release date for the Xda Graphite yet, but with working units already having cleared the feds on this side of the pond, we wouldn't be surprised to see these find their way into European pockets post haste.
