The World in Your Hand – Asus P535

The new smartphone from Asus is a true office from office running Windows Mobile 5.0, it also boasts a built-in GPS receiver, so no good for ringing the other half from the pub saying you’re lost.

Everyone wants the true mobility freedom, and never want to get lost. Then they want to use the GPRS to connect to Google Maps and find close by resturants in real time, etc. The Asus P535 isn’t the first to do it, but it is probably the prettiest and most powerful Phone/GPS yet.

Not only does the Asus P535 have a GPS receiver using the SiRFStar III GPS chipset and Wi-Fi connectivity, but it also features a 2-megapixel camera with autofocus.

The P535 is quite a powerhouse for such a small unit, with a Intel XScale 520MHz processor, 64MB RAM, 256MB ROM, 2.8″ 65k color TFT display, Bluetooth 2.0 and WiFi connectivity, and a miniSD memory card slot.

Initially shipping over here in dull grey next month a white version is planned to follow sometime next year.
