Legacy Devices Article Series: hTC Wallaby

On this series of articles, we will be talking about the Legacy devices, those early times great smartphones that marked the first steps and bases of the actual models. All Legacy Devices will be covered on the same order as threads are placed on XDA-Developers section.

Wallaby – The first steps

April 2002 was the launching date of this model also known as Qtek 1010 / Qtek 1020 / Dopod 686 / O2 Xda / Siemens SX56 / T-Mobile MDA / Telefonica TSM400. Specs for that time were amazing, featuring Microsoft Pocket PC 2002 Phone Edition running with a 206 MHz processor and RAM/ROM of the incredible speed: 32Mb! on a decent 3.5″ 240 x 320 screen.
We can understand that the rhythm of Legacy Devices development is not going as fast as new ones, but for sure it deserves a special place and recognition in XDA.
Actually the name of the site has a strong relation with the UK cell provider O2 who got the Wallaby and launched as O2 XDA.
As for ROM developing there is a XDA Developers Special Edition ROM based on 3.16.52 and 3.17.03 as the latest one.

A little interested factoid about the Wallaby, the first rom kitchen ever created was developed for this device, and it was an online kitchen with toggle boxes and a drop down to chose the base rom that would be used. You checked off everything you wanted to add, and voila… a couple of minutes later you had downloaded your own custom rom.
