CNET Asia got its hands on a brand new O2 Atom Exec, which was recently announced by O2 Asia and published a review with some new great photos of the Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition, which is an incremental upgrade to the original Atom, a move the company hopes will help stave off increasing competition from the likes of HP with its iPAQ rw6828 or the upcoming multimedia BlackBerry devices.
Following the highly successful design of the original Atom, the Exec offers the same dimensions - 102x58x18.5 mm - and a more than manageable weight of 140g. The most significant design difference between the first Atom and the Atom Exec is the fact that the new one uses a matte as opposed to a glossy finish.

The Exec runs on the Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system, upgraded with the Messaging and Security Feature Pack (MSFP) aka AKU 2. The most important update were done internally, there are a number of improvements upon the original Atom. The Atom Exec now uses a 520MHz Intel processor and is sporting 192 MB of ROM. The faster processor improves application performance and load time, while the increased ROM provides more space for storing data.
Connectivity options abound and include W-LAN 802.11b, Bluetooth 1.2, infrared and tri-band (900/1800/1900MHz) GSM/GPRS/EDGE.
Multimedia features are also plentiful and include an FM radio, an upgraded 2 megapixel camera for photos and videos.

The new O2 Xda Atom Exec should become available across East- and South-East Asia (incl. Australia) during this July at an estimated retail price of around US$ 845.
