O2 XDA Flame phone

O2 may be positioning its forthcoming XDA Flame phone as a media player, according to a post at Pocket PC Thoughts. Using a photo and a flyer as evidence, they suggest that the Flame will have 2GB of ROM, a 520MHz Intel CPU, and most notably, an Nvidia GoForce 5500 chipset. The 5500 supports surround sound, native decoding of video codecs such as H.264, WMV9 and MPEG-4, and 3D gaming on the level of Quake III Arena. The phone should also have a 2-megapixel camera and a 3.6-inch VGA display. To connect to other devices (and possibly the Internet), USB and 802.11b/g wireless ports will be available. The Flame should debut sometime in 2007 -- click through for images of the unit.
