O2 has begun selling the XDA Graphite, the Asus-made Wi-Fi and 3G Windows Mobile smart phone that emerged way back in October 2006 in US Federal Communications Commission filings.

Graphite packs in a tri-band GSM/GPRS radio in addition to its 3G link. Bluetooth too. It has a 65,536-colour display and a two-megapixel digital camera on the back. It has the Windows Mobile versions of Word, Excel and Outlook built in.

O2 claimed the handset has a talk time of up to four hours, rising to 150 hours in stand-by mode.
