So the XE and O have better rez. Also the O is the same processor just underclocked to 1.2Ghz.

A simple custom rom (which will invalidate the warrenty (see XDA developers)) will turn a O into a XE.

So in short, the O/XE is the same as XL, except it has a smaller screen, but, this is the kicker, much better rez so there is more readable text that fits on the screen.

The reason WHY the O is underclocked is when the chip runs at 1.5Ghz it has a worse battery life. So having the ablity to flash a standard ROM on the O gives it the advantage the others do not have (longer batt.) of course if battery is an issue you would of flashed Cynogen mod already...

The XE has more onboard storage, but yeah, doesn't seem to be any reason why you'd want to go for the XL over the XE or O.
