additions to its Xda range of devices into India. The official release claims that the new Xda Atom Exec is the company‘s latest PDA-phone geared toward meeting the needs of rising professionals and high-flyers in the business world, while the Xda Stealth is designed with the multi-tasker in mind, offering the ease of use of a mobile phone with the full functionality of a PDA device.


O2 Asia Pacific CEO Mark Billington is quoted in the official release, "It is important to always focus on customer needs, which is why O2 continually strives to design and develop devices that offer compelling solutions combined with sexy silhouettes. We are always on the lookout for gaps in the market and how we can fill those gaps."


The Xda Atom Exec has been targeted at  solutions-driven executives who need a "true mobile office" that pushes the standards of design, technology and usability. Packed under its matte "gun metal"-coloured casing are core functions of the Xda Atom, with upgraded software and enhancements to features and overall performance.


Besides its compact size and sleek design, the Xda Atom Exec is equipped with a host of productivity and connectivity features - including Wireless LAN, Bluetooth? and a sleek Infrared keyboard - it‘s a mobile office that doesn‘t look like an office.
