O2: is it 'Stellar' or is it 'Stella'

The 3G handset, which appears to be based on HTC's TyTN II design - reviewed here - is referred to as both the Stella and Stellar on its website.

However, the device runs on Windows Mobile 6 and has a 2.8in touchscreen. It’s also a quad-band GSM and 3G phone, with Wi-Fi connectivity and GPS navigation.

A three-megapixel camera and FM radio are built-in too. O2 hasn't said much else about the handset’s features, but if it's truly based on the TyTN II handset then it’ll incorporate Bluetooth 2.0 and a Micro SD card slot.

O2 hasn't given a price for the Stella handset yet either. But, it’s worth noting that a very similar looking rebranded HTC TyTN II is already available on T-Mobile as the MDA Vario III.
