It’s been a long while since we last heard of any new Xda devices, but now the Asus-built Xda Zest has been spotted at O2’s "coming soon" page in their online shop. Unfortunately, there was a problem with their online store page as I was checking it out so I can't really get a 1st hand look at it.

Anyway, let’s get on to the phone itself. Pricing and release date is yet to be determined, but some specs have surfaced. It’ll come with a 3-megapixel camera, 3G, WiFi, 356Mb internal memory, microSD card support and will run on Windows Mobile. Pretty average features so far for a mid-range phone, but I guess there’s more to this phone that we’ll learn about once it becomes available.

That wait, hopefully, won’t be too long since November has graciously been tagged to the Xda Zest as the target release month.
