Year 2003: O2 XDA 1

In 2003, I bought my first PPC mobile phone: An O2 XDA 1, originally named HTC Wallaby. It is pretty basic, without much connectivity, but it did its job beautifully and robustly.

Later, when my MDA3 touchscreen broke, I did a comparison disassembly.

O2 XDA 1
Evaluation
XDA 1
Pro:
  • Robust and functional
Contra:
  • No WLAN
  • No Bluetooth
  • No camera
  • No GPS
Bugs:
  • Spontaneous turning on

A warm note: It fell down a million times and never broke.
