You have to love the FCC. They spend all day testing the latest handsets making sure they don’t fry your brain, then they go and plonk pictures on the internet for all to see. Fantastic work. This time it’s a new Pocket PC phone with a slide-out numeric keypad designed not by HTC but by Gigabyte. It’s a tri-band GSM handset with GPRS and has an Intel PXA 272 416Mhz CPU with 192Mb ROM and 64Mb RAM. It also comes with MiniUSB, Bluetooth 1.2, Wifi 802.11b/g (yay!) and a MiniSD card slot.
It’s name? The XDA Stealth – coming soon we presume to o2. It’s hot on the heels of the Jupiter and Mars devices we saw last week but unlike the stealth fighter you won’t be seeing this one in the States due to the lack of 850Mhz GSM. The o2 XDA Stealth is a big blur of the Pocket PC / Smartphone line with it’s numeric keypad and phone-style looks plus it has a nice 2 Megapixel camera with flash around the back too.
UPDATE – More pictures below, plus it looks like the manual is a ready to roll – this isn’t a “generic” manual, it’s written up ready for o2 so we’re expecting a Q4 release.
