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.
