Lots of applications, big screen, movie player, mp3 player and sync to PC.
Pen falls to bits, headphones break easily, pen slot doesn't hold pen after short while.
Overall I very happy with my O2 XDA Mini S. It is small enough to be used just like a normal phone but has all the features of a full PDA, as well as normal phone functionality. Saying that you do have to be technically competent to get the most out of it, as it runs Windows Mobile 5, just like any PC running Windows, every now and again a reset to just out of the box can be very useful to get things running as you would like. This is done by doing a memory reset which clears everything and sets it back to how you got it. The good thing is a sync with the PC and all contacts etc., are back on the phone. I only reset mine every now and again. This is mainly, as Windows Mobile keeps everything that you start up running, in memory. A reset closes everything down and clears the memory. Mine also got a problem with the screen after about 11 months. It kept frosting and had to turn the screen off and on to clear it. O2 was brilliant and it was swapped out in only 2 days for a brand new one. The latest OS was running on my new one and is more stable than ever. Brilliant piece of kit and will definitely get a more up to date model when my contract runs out.
