O2 XDA Atom


Confession they say, is good for the soul, so here is ours: We have been counting down the hours waiting for the release of the O2 XDA Atom. This is b...

Compact size, Native Wi-fi

Slow, No SD support, Average picture quality

While O2 has impressed us in the past, the XDA Atom fails to live up to its potential. A small form factor and inbuilt Wi-Fi support fail to compensate for slow processing performance

O2's XDA Atom reviewed


The folks at MTekk have pooled their collective XDA Atom knowledge and amassed an in-depth review of the unit. The overall impression of the nearly iPod sized Windows Mobile 5 device seems pretty positive; they're digging the 2.7-inch QVGA screen and...

O2 Xda Atom


It has Wi-Fi, a 2-megapixel camera and runs on Windows Mobile 5.0, yet shares the same dimensions as the Xda II Mini. Find out what the hype on the Xda Atom is all about.

Tiny smartphone ; Integrated media centre-like functions ; 2-megapixel camera ; Stylish layout

Possibly too small for some business uses ; MiniSD card rather than full-sized SD

The Xda II Mini was certainly a hit amongst's audience as it dominated the early months of the year when it came to choosing our top mobiles, and given that the Atom is essentially just a feature set upgrade and a coat of black paint on the...

PHOTOVIEW: O2 Xda Atom Pocket PC Phone Edition


Thanks to O2 Asia, today I found an O2 Xda Atom in front of my door. If you don't know yet, what the Xda Atom is, it's an O2 Asia exclusive Pocket PC Phone Edition, running Windows Mobile 5.0, supporting tri-band GSM/GPRS, Bluetooth 1.2 as well as...

O2 XDA Atom


O2 describes the tiny XDA Atom as a PDA-phone. And so it is, but it's also a 2 megapixel CMOS camera, an FM radio(!) and an MP3 player. Nor is it a slouch on the connectivity front, offering as it does Tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE phone network...

O2 XDA Atom Reviewed


For those who fell in love with the HTC Magician and its tiny form-factor, the O2 XDA Atom could seem like a perfect successor (though not from the same company). However, with all that it has to offer, it does have its quirks that can make or break...

Solid and sturdy construction ; Integrated FM radio ; Full-featured O2 applications ; Strong cellular reception ; Frequent ROM updates and decent support

Quirky behavior ; Mediocre battery life ; No 850MHz support ; Slow and washed-out camera ; Expensive

O2 XDA Atom


The O2 XDA Atom is a powerful device that combines business applications with multimedia, thanks to Windows Mobile 5.0 and the inbuilt hardware features that characterise the Atom. It does have its share of bugs, like any Windows device, but combining...

O2 XDA Atom


O2 Xda Atom - powered by Windows Mobile 5.0 and equiped with EDGE, onboard WiFi and 2 megapixel camera. The Xda Atom is designed to be the world's smallest multimedia PDA-phone packed with even more features than its predecessor, the Xda II mini.

The O2 Xda Atom is beautiful, no doubt about it. This is the latest in a series of Windows mobile devices launched by O2. This time, it comes in a mini version which is touted as one of the smallest Windows Mobile phones around.
