BANGALORE: O2 introduced a PDA multimedia phone in New Delhi today – the Xda Atom Life. The idea behind the new offering is a concept of a "life warrior", someone who charges at life and live it to the max, who place a premium on not only productivity but also creativity, according to an official release.

Many customers across the region still regard the PDA-phone as a business tool," said O2 ceo -Asia Pacific and Middle East, Mark Billington. " With the Xda Atom Life we really want to open up the converged device market to more customers by demonstrating that PDA-phones can manage your life on all fronts – seamlessly fusing work and play; and meeting your needs, be they connectivity, productivity or creativity, in one compact unit."


Weighing only 145 grams the Xda Atom Life is smaller than its predecessor - the Xda Atom and is designed to be a multimedia-centric device for personal entertainment. The Xda Atom has a brilliant 262k-colour 2.7-inch TFT QVGA LCD screen, and the O2 MediaPlus interface – first introduced with the Xda Atom enables one to read comic strips, watch manga clips or use the in-built 2.0 mega pixel camera with macro focus.

The other features include MP3 and FM radio tuner with RDS function, SRS WOW HD surround sound and dual stereo speakers. HSDPA and 3.5G-enabled, the Xda Atom Life lets one make video calls, add music podcasts, watch clips on YouTube or stream sports clips. Built-in Bluetooth® and Wireless LAN are the other connectivity options that the phone has. The device also comes with a 1GB of onboard memory

The Xda Atom Life comes also with a turbocharged Intel XScale ® PXA 270 processor that clocks in at 624MHz on the Windows Mobile® 6 platform.

The Xda Atom Life will retail this month at Rs 34,990 (all taxes included) across India at all major cities in the country with one-year local warranty.
