The carrier has equipped Xda Atmos with Windows Mobile 6.0 for seamless integration with Microsoft Exchange.

The phone also supports Microsoft Direct Push Email for real-time access to inbox, calendar, contacts, and tasks. In addition, the Xda Atmos includes Office tools like the mobile versions of Excel, Word Mobile, and PowerPoint.

The phone is available now and free of charge when signing up for a minimum one-year contract; monthly service fees start at $240 for unlimited minutes, 200 MB of data, and unlimited texting, according to the carrier's online store.
