In addition to Zinc II, MWG has released Atom V, which is really very similar. One big difference is to remove the QWERTY style keyboard. MWG Atom V is a solid-built smartphone / PDA with 2.8 "touch screen TFT LCD. The overall size of the phone is 11.6 x 5.9 x 15.0 cm that make it slightly larger than standard smartphones but we found it amazingly lighter than Sink II, weighs only 133 g (not much heavier than the Nokia N95 8GB).
The internal is a processor Intel XScale PXA 270 520 MHz processor, which, like Zinc II, is slightly hindered by a small 64MB RAM installed. However, even with only 64MB of memory, the phone is well-tested and the opening of many windows did not result in any crashes or freezing. The smartphone operates the installed operating system, Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Professional, with ease and navigation MWG Atom V can connect to built-in Bluetooth v2.0 and also 802.11 b / g WLAN that is standardized with most smartphones. We found connections were easy to understand. Control and more important is to be stable.
Like Zinc II, the phone is quad-band and s em such will work worldwide, both on standard mobile networks and 3G networks. MWG Atom V is also capable of network data transfer rates up to 7.2 Mbps using one of the latest HSDPA protocols (subject to network). We discovered that the phone worked well on three networks in the tests and data transmission was fast as expected.
In addition, Atom V has an inbuilt GPS with SiRF Star III GPS. We found the location was accurate, but the satellite purchase was relatively slow compared to an independent GPS system. For entertainment, the phone has a built-in FM radio with RDS, as well as being able to play regular media with Windows Media Player.
The most noticeable difference between Zinc II and Atom V comes in battery life. Atom V has a bright waiting time of 150 hours and talk time up to 3.5 hours, which is almost half that of zinc II.
Atom V seems a good and lightweight smartphone that provides good connectivity and functionality. While the phone does not have a readable keypad / keyboard (based on the touchscreen), it would be a good way to receive email and, if necessary, a Bluetooth wireless keyboard always exists!
MWG Atom V is available from Expansys UK for £ 299.99 (with £ 50 cashback at the time of writing).
