Office 365: Home Premium vs Exchange Online

I currently run SBS 2008 at home (not for business, but because I like the features).

I am thinking of migrating my email to a cloud based service - specifically Office 365. My question is this though.

Does Office 365 Home Premium offer the same email provision as Office 365 Hosted Exchange Only?

I have multiple domain names - can I add those to a Home Premium account?
How much Exchange space does each Home Premium mailbox get?
Can I access Exchange using my iPhone still?
Do I get calendars and can I share them with other Home Premium members?

I'm not worried about AD integration at all.

Thanks

I know this is very confusing but there are 2 completely different products and there both called office 365.  Office 365 home premium is an alternative to Office 2013, all it is is office in the cloud with some additional features like skydrive.  good link explaining the details below

Now the other 365 that you would want is located at office365.com which is exchange online where you can add your domains and have an exchange online email server and sharepoint if you want or lync server. If you go to the link below you can see the office 365 plans for exchange online only adn the others, If your using this for personal use I would suggest getting the P Plan which gives you Exchange Online, Sharepoint Online, and Lync Online for only $6 a month a user.  I don't know why Microsoft did this, I guess just to confuse everyone.  But 2 very different products The last link at the bottom is my article on the Office 365 with exchange online that you want, I wrote it before they came out with this new Office Suite called Office 365.  Check it out and see if it helps you as well
