Awesome phone! And yes, just came from the Philippines and it is available there. Purchased mine at mxexpress at SM North Edsa for Php 29,900.
I wonder if this phone has mobile version of internet explorer or not?..
I mean is it capable of working only WAP or both HTML and WAP?...thanx
Go to Yahoo HK and search for device technology. I got it there for a low price.
if you're from the philippines, you can buy this great phone at any wellcom shops or at comcentre in makati park square at a cheaper price =)
Hello there, I really like this one as it has a phone pad but its a full featured pda as well. I have one question. Does any body know where can i buy this phone in Asia? If you know any site please mail me.
And yes, there is a lag when typing an sms using the keypad.. Small issues for a device that ranks at the top of my list.. I've had many pda/phones.. ie, Sony p990, htc tytn, Benq p50,etc.. this is the best by far..It's as if Asus has taken the best qualities from all these phones and put it into the P525..The build quality of the Benq p50, speed of the tytn, camera and business card recognizer of the P990.. great phone..
Hello everyone, i've had this phone since last september and my only gripe is the toggle.. cant get it to go straight down.. it will go diagonal instead...Does anyone else have this problem? Its not a bad toggle because when I play games its fine... As to peoples question on how to find contacts for sending sms or whatever just using the keypad-- Well for me, all i do is when I get to the contacts menu, I press up with the directional toggle, hold down the * key, select t9, hold the * key again and select the Abc.. works fine for me..
Hi its unbelievable device!! But I have a question about the bluetooth every time I send something via bluetooth the p525 ask the other device (receiver) about passkey. How can I send without giving may passkey to the receiver device??
Thank you for the help, finally I can SMS with ease. I notice that the screen lags a bit when you are typing thru the keypad is that normal?
The other thing is that I still cant get the alpabats on the contact screen. Can you please help.
A question for u...when u are sending an SMS message, with the imates when u start typing a receipent , the list of likely receipents appear below on the screen, but it doesnt with this device...any suggestions?
By the way, does anybody know if ASUS has released an arabic patch for this machine? and if so, where can i download it?
I got the device 2 says back. The build quality is fasinating(in the same class as nokias and SE's), plus it really turns the heads around. But like all pocket Pc's , its got its drawbacks. Occasionally u have to reset to get it functioning again(but who cares, i had the same sort of problem with the P990 also). Display and camera is wonderful. If u havent decided between P990 and this device and if 3G is no issue to u, dont hesitate to go for this one.
fantastic its very strange
in evry case its first
how did ASUS did this ??
i think p535 would be very better with 520mhz cpu !!!!
any review in english ??
Hi Spb benchmarks are below in link sorry review is in french but at bottom of this page is benchmarks clear as day....
Asus Out right winner!!!!
can you give a link to the benchmark of p525 ??????
or a comperhensive review ???????
In regard to your question can you type and use hand writing in different colours yes this device supports that functionality ive just tried it and works a treat...as to this device has lesser functionality well i feel that to be a liitle harsh as yes it doesnt have 3g and HSDPA,Slide out keyboard Wifi g speed etc...BUT...its the fastest PDA benchmark wise so far and has the best camera for MS pda bar none,it doesnt crash and wifi speed g can be got via a registry hack...build quality puts Htc and 99% pdas to shame.
I have had countless PDAs and i will say this...this PDA will be my new benchmark of which future tense PDAs will be measured by.
So beware all you Manufacturers Asus/Asustek is the new __STANDARD______
Hi Mr Francesco,
I've been considering so many PDA fons and seems like P525 is the most practical so far despite having lesser advance features e.g. WiFi only "b" and not "g". I'll be buying 2 of this by year end, 1 for myself and 1 for my wife, once I've sold my E.S.O.S.
Since u are the expert with this fon, can u pse tell me whether it is possible to jot or draw something in multicolor similar the "Paint" function in the normal PC Windows program using the handwriting recognition function. I have great need for this function.
Thanks & Regards
The only way to get this is to import it...Mobile Gadgets are very good..best importer ive used.
I live in the Uk same boat as you but well worth the money...HTC and other manufacturers need to follow the standards of ASus they now set the bench mark for quality in build and rom,,they are the best bar NONE!!!!
Bought this phone 3 days ago, took me a while to learn how to write/type on this thing. But I kinda figured it out after playing with it for 2 days. Been pleased with it ever since. Its nice not to have to pull the stylus out all the time.
In answer to your questions to writing reconition in order to activate this will work in word documents - writing long sentences please select transcriber in menu setup in word app, off you go write to your hearts content - there is a little learning curve in learning to write in the way os understands but quite easy.
You also asked how to use keys for alpha numerical search in contacts make sure you have selected abc-123 by pressing star button then goes to contact use scroll middle joy stick button to high light search field, then use keys to select name letters or numbers pressed will narrow down name.
Job done hope this helps.
