Lots of new hi-res photos of the XDA II at PPCW.net
has been up on Arne Hess' PPCW.net site for a while. It's got a ton of new, hi-res photos of the XDA II, and they show almost every possible angle of the device, including under the battery cover, and the first shots I've seen of the new cradle.
- The SDIO slot is on the top of the device
- There is some kind of auxillary connector in the battery compartment, maybe for the rumored CF backpack or Wi-Fi.
- The cradle has a built-in mic (for speakerphone), headset jack, and charging slot for an extra removeable battery
- The sync connector appears to be exactly the same as the current XDA
- There are now 2 buttons and a slider/rocker on the side where the volume button was. Presumably, the buttons are for the camera and volume, while the slider/rocker works like a traditional jog button
All in all, these photos pack quite a lot of information, and are the most revelatory that I've seen so far. I'm quite excited about the new possible features (CF backpack/WiFi, extra features on the cradle, dedicated camera button, etc.).
I can't wait for this device to arrive!
