ASUS P552w gets launched
Asus may have canned the awesome-looking Lamborghini smartphone, but they’ve been working on something else all along.
Just announced is the Asus P552w, which features a 2.8-inch touchscreen on which users can sift through their data using Asus’ Glide user interface. It runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional.
Aside from its unique and hopefully intuitive UI, the Asus P552w also comes with unique software that gives users an entirely new smartphone experience. For example, it ships with what Asus calls EziPhoto and EziMusic. In EziPhoto, users will be able to flip through their photo collection with their fingertips, just like how they would with real-world albums. We’re guessing the same goes for music albums with EziMusic.
The Asus P552w comes with support for 3.6Mbps HSDPA data and 2100 UMTS. There’s 256MB flash memory on-board and room for a lot of extra with its microSDHC card slot. Plus, it’s got a 624MHz processor, which should prove useful when using processor-intensive Windows Mobile apps.
There hasn’t been a confirmation of its retail price from Asus yet, but since it also features Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 2 megapixel camera and 1100 mAh battery, it would easily be worth several hundred bucks.
