    Asus P565 Unveiled

    Asus P565 Unveiled

    Folks waiting for the Asus P565 need not hold their breath any longer, as this Windows Mobile 6.1-powered handset is finally unveiled to the masses. Time to take a look at the specifications and drool over it :-


     


    * 800MHz Marvell processor
    * 2.8" VGA LCD display
    * Glide technology
    * HSDPA 3.6Mbps support
    * UMTS 2100, EDGE/GPRS/GSM 900/1800/1900 connectivity
    * 256MB flash memory
    * 128MB SDRAM
    * Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR connectivity
    * 3 megapixel camera with autofocus
    * microSD/SDHC memory card slot

    All of the above are crammed into a body that measures a mere 102mm x 60.5mm x 16mm, tipping the scales at 120 grams. No idea on pricing or availability though.

    Asus has announced what it claims is the world's fastest smartphone to date: the Windows Mobile 6.1-based P565.

    The business-oriented PDA phone, which has a Marvell TavorP 800MHz processor, was announced on Friday. The only other 'phone' with a processor as fast as 800MHz is the HTC Shift; although, since the Shift runs Vista, it is really less a smartphone and more a small notebook.

    By contrast, the processor used in Apple's iPhone 3G has the potential to run at 667MHz, although it only runs at 400MHz probably to save battery life.

    The P565 uses a 1300mAh battery similar to that used in rival devices such as HTC's Touch Diamond, which has the same screen-size and resolution with Asus claiming up to four hours of talktime. However, the Touch Diamond offers a claimed maximum of five-and-a-half hours of talktime using its 528MHz processor, reflecting how the faster processor in the P565 negatively affects its battery life.

    The Asus P565 has 2.8-inch, 480x640-pixel touchscreen, which is slightly less impressive than the 'high-definition' displays appearing on recently released handsets such as HTC's Touch HD. The Touch HD has a resolution of 800x480 pixels.

    Many manufacturers now put their own user interface skins over the Windows Mobile engine, in a bid to both differentiate and enhance the experience of using their handsets.

    Asus, with its Glide interface, is no exception. As with competitors' skins, Glide allows users to navigate their handsets' functionality using simple finger motions. Asus has incorporated its own applications into Glide, including weather forecast updates, photo slideshows and a media player.

    As the P565 is a business-focused phone, features such as Microsoft Office Mobile, push mail and business-card recognition are also built in.


    The Asus P565's battery cover is coated in black synthetic leather, for what the manufacturer terms "an air of bespoke exclusivity".

    The 120g handset also has a 3-megapixel camera and MicroSD expandability to augment its built-in 256MB of memory. Connectivity options include 3.6Mbps HSDPA, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi , USB v1.1 and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR.

    It is not yet certain, however, whether the P565 will be launched in the UK. An Asus spokesperson told ZDNet UK on Tuesday that, if the handset does find its way here, that would not be until "next year".
