A smartphone with all the trimmings

Crave UK spots a feature-rich phone at a decent price--the MWg Atom Life for about $400.

Easter's gone, spring is twanging, and we're all skint--still paying off Christmas and saving up for our summer holidays.

But fear not--if you're looking to buy a smartphone with all the trimmings this season, there's a phone available at the moment that's so cheap we had to check it over and over again to make sure we weren't seeing things. Wave hello to the MWg Atom Life, available for 200 pounds ($400).

Similar to the HTC P3600, the Atom Life offers a large touch screen, Wi-Fi, HSDPA (3.5G) and a 2-megapixel camera. But in contrast to the P3600, it also packs an FM radio, a faster processor, 1GB of flash memory, and it runs on Windows Mobile 6.

Admittedly, the casing is a little plasticky and it supports miniSD instead of microSD or full SD cards, but these are minor issues given how cheap it is.

Currently available from British retailer eXpansys and certain other smartphone sellers, we think 200 pounds for this is a real bargain compared with similarly featured handsets. If you're on a budget but want a Windows Mobile power house, this could be the fella for you.
