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 CNET.com.au'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 Pure

 

O2 Atom Pure - power packed with all the cutting edge features in an Xda Atom, this powerful multimedia PDA-phone is now available in seductive white.

Over all, this is a nice and stable Pocket PC with pleasing curves and brilliant white case. The case isn't quite as solid as the RW6828 but does have the included O2 applications with a stable ROM and better camera performance. Having not played with...
