O2 preparing XDA Zinc

British carrier O2 is preparing to launch a new Asus smartphone, the XDA Zinc, in January of 2007. The Register notes that it was once known by the codename "Mars 2" when it was under review by the Federal Communications Commission in the United States. The phone should be functionally similar to the XDA Mini S, but will have a sharper two megapixel camera, a faster 520MHz processor, larger buttons on its QWERTY keyboard, and support for 802.11b/g WiFi. It will also be a tri-band GSM unit, which should allow roaming across many different regions outside the United Kingdom. No costs have been announced.
