Dopod 818 Pro...just like O2 Atom....confiuussss

O2 Xda Atom Pocket PC

Handheld newcomer Dopod seems to have saved the best for last when it announced the launch of its latest PDA-phone, the 818 Pro. Sporting a tiny form factor, 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth and TI's OMAP processor, the new Dopod is, on paper, an improved version of the popular Xda II mini, with wireless LAN and the new Windows Mobile 5.0 OS. However, with almost similar features as the upcoming Xda Atom, it is not hard to see who the Dopod is targeted at.

Both the Dopod 818 Pro and O2 Xda Atom may offer similar specs such as a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth and Windows Mobile 5.0, but they actually share more differences than similarities. In terms of dimensions, the 818 Pro is marginally thinner than the Atom but is 6mm longer length-wise. It should also be noted that the Dopod sports a matt surface finish which gives it a more solid feel and a lot less fingerprint smudges than the Atom.

In Dopod's favor are its upgraded connectivity components such as the Bluetooth v2.0 (compared with the v1.2 on the Atom), 802.11b/g wireless LAN (Atom has 802.11b) and quadband GSM support (versus Atom's triband). The 818 Pro also comes with a larger 2.8-inch LCD display, which is 0.1-inch more than the Atom.

The biggest advantage, however, is Dopod's employment of an SD/MMC card slot instead of a miniSD which O2 has on the Atom. This should not only go down well with those who already own SD cards, the fact that they are generally more affordable and available in higher capacities than miniSD will be the stronger pull factor for many buyers.

Like the Dopod 838, the 818 Pro will run on the TI OMAP 850 (195MHz) chip which is likely to be a bottleneck for the handheld considering the various multimedia functions onboard. O2's faster Intel PXA272 Bulverde (416MHz) processor should have a slight advantage here. While the screen size of the Dopod is 0.1-inch larger than the Atom's, it displays only 64K colors, compared with the Atom's 256K colors. FM radio, a feature that's available on the Atom, is also not offered on the 818 Pro.

With a retail price of S$1,128 (US$662.21), the 818 Pro is S$200 (US$117.41) more affordable than the Atom. Together with the improved connectivity options and SD/MMC card expansion, the Dopod holds some advantage over the Atom. However, the slower processor remains a possible Achilles' heel in Dopod's plan to steal O2's spotlight. The 818 Pro is expected to be launched in mid-December 2005 and will be available in five colors (silver, pink, lavender, black and blue).

Nokia N92

O2 Xda Atom Pocket PC

"The true 3G phone"
I have no idea about DVB-H receiver. I guess it's something to receive TV mobile in Singapore. But this is so cool features. We can watch TV and record it on-the-go. With 802.11g Wifi, this is a perfect handset. The only concern is the size of the handset.

Nokia N770

O2 Xda Atom Pocket PC

As wireless hotspots spring up like toadstools, Internet devices designed to take advantage of this trend are sprouting up as well. Enter the Nokia N770 Internet Tablet (5.5 x 3.1 x 0.7 inches; 230g). Not necessarily a smart phone or a traditional handheld, the N770 is designed to provide a mobile user with Internet access either via Wi-Fi or by connecting to a Bluetooth-enabled cell phone.

Packed to the gills with a host of productivity applications and multimedia features, the N770 is a promising device. That said, while it works with a myriad of multimedia, its lack of support for native Microsoft file formats such as WMA and WMV will limit its appeal. Also, as more robust smart phones appear on the mobile landscape, it remains to be seen how many users are willing to carry two devices when, in many instances, one will suffice.
Editors' note:

The Nokia N770 is currently available only in selected countries in Europe and America. No word from Nokia as to whether the product will be available in Asia.

Upside: With a relatively large screen that measures 4.13 inches diagonally (in Landscape orientation), the N770 should provide a more enjoyable Web-surfing experience than many of today's smart phones. Additionally, with integrated Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) and Bluetooth, connecting to the Internet via either protocol should be a breeze. The N770 also ships with a plethora of multimedia features, including an Internet radio; several media players; and support for MP3, RealAudio, MPEG-4, AAC, WAV, AMP, and MP2 audio formats as well as MPEG-1, MPEG-4, RealVideo, and AVI video formats. The N770 will run a Linux-based Nokia Internet Tablet 2005 software edition and ship with a Web browser, an email client, a news reader, an image viewer, and a PDF viewer.

Downside: Though it supports a ton of multimedia files, the Nokia N770's incompatibility with native Microsoft formats may turn off potential buyers. Plus, taking into account the device's robust multimedia functionality, we wish it shipped with more than 64MB of DDR RAM, 128MB of embedded flash memory (64MB of which is user accessible), and a 64MB Reduced Size MultiMediaCard (RS-MMC). Also, the RS-MMC card is limited to a maximum capacity of 256MB. Finally, the device's onscreen keyboard isn't the most user-friendly method for inputting information and composing email.

Outlook: The Nokia N770 Internet Tablet is no doubt an interesting device that holds a lot of promise. Considering the ubiquitous nature of wireless hotspots, the N770 could be useful. That said, while smart phones grow ever smarter, the need to lug around multiple devices is shrinking, and we wonder if the N770 has enough appeal to lure in buyers. Be sure to check back later for a full review.

Treo 700w

O2 Xda Atom Pocket PC

Check it out: we got our hands on the new Windows Mobile-powered Treo, but it ain’t called the Treo 670 anymore (if it even ever was called that), it’s the Treo 700w (which implies—but doesn’t guarantee—the existence of a Palm-powered Treo 700p). We haven’t spent enough time with the 700w for a proper review — we’ve literally had it in our hands for only a few hours — but we couldn’t resist posting up this first look:

A few confirmed specs: Windows Mobile 5.0, one megapixel camera, EV-DO, Bluetooth, 64MB of memory, still trying to conclusively determine the resolution of the display, but it looks to our eyes like it’s 240 x 240 pixels, not 320 x 320. But we’re not 100% on that, ok?

Motorola Q

O2 Xda Atom Pocket PC

The Q's main claim to fame is that it is 50% thinner than any other similar device on the market. Below you will find some photos of the Q next to a RIM Blackberry device that show you that Motorola isn't just blowing smoke. The Q really is that thin. In spite of that, the device still manages to sport a 1.3 megapixel camera and a miniSD memory card slot, and has a keyboard that offers a feel similar to that of the Treo 650.

The Q's display is quite beautiful, and looks great from a wide viewing angle. Its reflective backing should makes it easily readable in direct sunlight, something that is a must for business users. Bluetooth support is also built-in, allowing the use of Bluetooth headsets with the device - and potentially other services, depending on the carrier. While Motorola has not yet announced what networks and frequency bands the Q will support, since that will depend on carrier demand, a Motorola representative did say that the device should be good for about 4 hours of talk time and 8 days of standby time.

Ron Garriques, president of Motorola Mobile Devices, said that, conservatively, the Q should be available in Q1 of 2006, but that he hoped to have the device on the market during Q4 of this year. No information on pricing or market availability was released.

We'll post more details as they become available.

You'll find more live photos of the Motorola Q on the following page.

Samsung’s SGH-D307

O2 Xda Atom Pocket PC

We’re kind of over our period of mourning for the Motorola MPx by now, but if you’re still wishing and hoping for some of that flip n’ fold goodness and aren’t too attached to the idea of getting a Windows Mobile smartphone, it might interest you to know we spotted Samsung’s SGH-D307 with Cingular branding the other night here at CTIA. Just to jog your memory, it’s a quad-band number with EDGE and Bluetooth (unlike its tri-band GPRS big brother, the D550). While not the thinnest or the lightest, it’s still sure to turn a few heads for the upper-lower-mid-range qwerty communicator device, especially since its competition Stateside right now is probably going to be the LG9200.

Man, eight hundred bucks seems like a crazy ridiculous price to pay for a Pocket PC Phone that isn’t the HTC Universal, but CNET Asia reports that O2’s new XDA Atom is all set to retail for just north of $800 in Singapore (and elsewhere in Asia). That said, it is pretty nicely spec’d out for a smaller Pocket PC Phone, this bad boy is a quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE handset that runs on Windows Mobile 5.0 and has a 416MHz processor, a 262,000 color, 320 x 240 pixel LCD touch screen, Bluetooth (they don’t specify which kind, but prob. 1.1 or 1.2), a two megapixel digital camera, WiFi, a built-in FM tuner (a rarity in Windows Mobile devices), 64MB of RAM, and 128MB of ROM. Should be out in early December.

o2 Xda Atom : Smaller and more features than Xda Mini!
Yup, they're at it again! In the next few months, O2 looks set to release another new addition to the Xda family, the O2 Xda Atom. As the name suggests, it is small! In fact smaller than its predecessor the O2 Xda II Mini. However despite the size difference, its bigger on features. Onboard WiFi connectivity, a 2-megapixel camera, integrated FM radio and new OS Windows Mobile 5.0 will come standard on this little gadget. The extra boost to 128MB of flash ROM (from 64MB on the Mini) will also mean that you'll have more memory for your power hungry apps.

It'll be interesting to see how the O2 Xda Atom will compare against the Imate K-Jam/HTC Magician. Hope to post up some comparison results once they become available.

Features of the O2 XDA Atom:
- Windows Mobile 5.0
- Windows Media Player 10
- Integrated FM Radio
- Onboard WiFi (802.11b)
- 2-megapixel digital camera (CMOS)
- Quadband mobile phone
- Video recording and playback
- It's smaller than the O2 XDA II Mini!

Specifications of the O2 XDA Atom:
- Dimensions: 102 x 58 x 18.5 mm
- Weight: 150g
