The new handset uses a 800Mhz processor and runs Windows Mobile 6.1 and claims to have beaten all other phones in speed testing using the Vsbenchmark testing suite. However, this power comes at a price, as the phone can only handle three hours 3G talk time or four hours at 2G.
“The ASUS P565 is geared toward the business community,” said the company in a statement.
“The coupling of an 800 MHz processor and Glide—an innovative touch-responsive user interface exclusive to select ASUS PDA phones—makes for a powerful, productivity-boosting combination.”
The Glide interface uses a 2.8 inch multitouch screen displaying at 480 x 640 pixels. It also has a three megapixel camera, GPS and MicroSD removable storage.
The phone also has the capability to scan data from business cards. A photo is taken of the card and software pulls off the data and adds it to the contacts database.
