0Overall Score

Following the release of two new 3G power phones earlier this month, O2 has added another PDA-phone to its range; the Xda Atom Life.

The Life sits in the ‘multimedia’ category of O2’s offerings – letting you mix work and ‘play.’

Based on the Windows Mobile platform, the device is HSDPA and 3.5G enabled, with built-in Bluetooth and wireless LAN, as well as 1GB built-in storage space.

O2 claims its XScale PXA 270 processor clocks in at 624MHz, making it the fastest PDA-phone on the Windows Mobile platform.

But in terms of its multimedia capabilities – the Life features a two megapixel camera for taking pictures and home movies, as well as a secondary camera to make 3G video calls.

You can also listen to your MP3 collection, or FM radio and view back all your content on the 2.7-inch QVGA screen. 

And if you’re wondering where the name ‘Life’ comes into it – the phone is being marketed for the ‘Life Warrior’ – someone who lives life to the max and craves a feature-rich device.

RRP: $1299
