O2 Xda Argon

O2 Xda Argon

O2's Xda range of Windows Mobile handhelds has something of an aura about it. The original <a href="http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/hardware/handhelds/0,1000000735,10001359,00.htm">Xda</a> appeared back in 2002, kicking off a line of O2 devices that has proved both popular and enduring. As well as introducing new models into the range, O2 has consistently updated the original Xda form factor, the most recent incarnation being the <a href="http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/hardware/handhelds/0,1000000735,39193995,00.htm">Xda IIi</a>. The <a href="http://businessshop.o2.co.uk/phone_detail.aspx?id=94&groupid=4">Xda Argon</a> is another update.

Samsung SGH-i600

Samsung SGH-i600

<p>A little over a year ago we looked at the <a href="http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/hardware/mobilephones/0,1000000685,39251280,00.htm">Samsung SGH-i300</a>, a ground-breaking Windows Mobile Smartphone with a 3GB hard drive built into it. Samsung's latest foray into Windows Mobile territory is the <a href="http://shop.orange.co.uk/shop/show/handset/samsung_i600/detail/small_business">SGH-i600</a>. The SGH-i600 does not incorporate a hard drive, and is much less of a groundbreaking smartphone. However it has some attractive features, not least of which is the fact that UK customers can buy it with an Orange contract and get it for free. Our review sample came from <a href="http://www.scancom.co.uk">Scancom</a>. </p>
