O2 XDA Apollo: 1 GB of memory and SRS sound in a smartphone



If I hadn’t seen this with my own four eyes, I don’t think I would have believed it. Jason Langridge points out pics and specs of the new O2 XDA Apollo over at MrPalm.com (credit: pic shown) and this phone is loaded; maybe even too much! I’ve been wondering what could take a Windows Mobile Smartphone to the next level but I didn’t expect to see 1 Gigabyte of internal memory and two speakers with SRS sound support. If that’s not enough, there’s also two cameras, Bluetooth and a 520 MHz mobile processor under the hood. I can’t read Thai (nor could I easily find a Thai translation site), so there’s probably even more here than meets the eye!

Does this sound like a bit much? Does it blur the lines too much between Windows Mobile and Windows or are these types of specs what you’re looking for in the next generation of handhelds?

Nah! My Dell x51v has 624mhz, CF USB Host Controller which connects to a Seagate 149GB perpendicular 2.5″ HD in a lithium battery / USB 2.5″ caddy enclosure & sports Audiovox RTM 8000 Voice & Data CF card.
But the O2 XDA’s two cameras has me beat, I can’t find a SDIO or CF slot camera for WM5 anywhere?

Surely that’s not for real? If it is, I want one! The more power the better, with one caveat — if battery life stinks, then it’s all for naught.
