I check the windows update, and there is no update at the moment.
I don't know if Asus Center can upgrade to WM 6.1
Can anybody provide information?
Thanks.

The battery is not giving the usage time as per specification.Hanging problem and gprs once connected cannot disconnect we have to make the phone off for it.

I bought this phone based on the reviews I read here but am totally disappointed by the dismal performance of this phone. The battery does not last for 5 hours in Standby model while the maker claims 120 hours! The phone hangs every now and then. It takes more than 45 seconds to execute one command. The windows mobile is also painful while using outlook. No auto complete for addresses, no copy or paste function.
In short this phone sucks!
I will not recommand this phone to even my enemy.
Stay away from it.

I like it very much. Got it as my second phone for ~200$, ~140EUR. It's working OK with 8GB Sandisk SDHC class4 misroSD

So good things:
+ great display
+ good connectivity
+ can charge using standart mini USB connector
+ Powerful CPU (can watch DVDRip full size divx movies)
+ very nice build quality (it looks almost as expensive as blackberry)
+ keypad
+ OK camera
+ very detailed call history

bad things:
- battery life could be better (that nice, bright screen eats all power...I can't find any way to set lower brightness lever)
- a bit bulky at first, but you will get used to it soon
- had some software compatibility issues installing third party tools
- office document viewers instead of full office suite
- no notepad software comes by default

what do I forget? :)
