Just wondered if anyone has had a go with the new 02 XDA2 combined phone and PDA?

I have the original XDA too but it is riddled with software errors and keeps crashing! Would consider buying the new one if it is much better.

I would also like to hear if anyone has used one.

Does anyone know if it will support wireless networking e.g. 802.11b? (with a compatible wifi card)

I bought the new XDA2. It's much improved over the previous version. The software seems to run much smoother and faster. The only thing I wish it had is built in Wi-Fi support although I have just ordered a SD card today that will give it Wi-Fi functionality.

fax_machine, I had problems with the original where you'd often need to reboot to make (or receive) calls. In general I thought the PDA side of the XDA was good but the phone side was dreadful.

What was your experience of the original in this regard and does XDA2 improve this?

Really appreciate the feedback, I'd like to get the new one but I won't be before knowing it's going to do what says on the box!

Cheers

I also had lots of software problems with the old XDA especially with regard to the phone. I had to keep reseting it all the time as it was always locking up.

The XDA 2 seems much better in this regard and I have so far had no similar problems.

I am thinking of buying the XDA 2.

I need something for emails when I'm travelling. Is it capable of receiving and sending about 100 emails per day?

My only reason for not buying yet is that I am confused with the cost structure, I have no idea what I would be paying in order to send/receive 100 emails per day. (maybe it was the way the guy in the shop explained it).
