O2 has the idea that with the right PR and some of its own ideas that it can convince users that a massive PDA style smartphone is better for daily use than their netbook. Whatever. The XDA Flint is the HTC Advantage X7510 running Windows Mobile 6.1.

The device offers 16GB of storage, GPS, Wi-Fi, and HSDPA connectivity along with a 5-inch touchscreen and detachable keyboard. With netbooks offering a larger screen, more storage, and a massively better keyboard, this will be a hard sell.

I think that many will prefer to stick with their iPhone and tote around an Eee or Wind for the times when they need to use a computer. Pricing for the Flint is unknown at this time.
