Remember Asus P550 PDA phone, that appearedÂ out of nowhere on FCC site? How come Asus did not make any announcement before and even since then?
Well, today we may have an answer. Soon Asus P550 will see the light of day, but with a different name – Vodafone v1520 PDA phone.
Teaser for Vodafone v1520, which looks exactly the same as GPS equipped Asus P550, is already on Vodafone site.
And, if history with Vodafone Samsung F700v is any guide, there may be some exclusivity involved here and it may take a while before Asus P550 is available on other carriers.
Vodafone v1520/Asus P550 specs include:
- Marvel PXA270 520 MHz CPU
- 256MB Flash ROM, 64MB SDRAM
- Triband GSM (9001800/1900) and UMTS 2100 MHz connectivity
- 3.5″ QVGA (320×240 px) 65K color TFT display
- Built-in GPS, WI-Fi b/g, Bluetooth 2.0 and USB 1.1
- microSD memory card slot
- Up to 600 hrs stand-by time
- Weight: 188 gr
- Dimensions: 121x71x16.5 mm
Of course it’s a shame if Asus P550 will stay locked-in for a while. But it’s not that bad, like it was with Samsung 700v, since there’s plenty of the good and powerful Windows Mobile PDA/phones to choose where Vofaone v1520 comes from.
