Here's one of the reviews I liked:
I've tried out the phone yesterday. I'm particularly interested on the handwriting feature but as I tried it, the handwriting is all in black only. Can anybody who is already using this phone let me know whether it is posibble to use multi color with it?
My Asus P525 has just been dispatched should in have it 2/3 days big review coming very soon hold tight..all that you want to know about this baby will be revealed....i am a real PPc/Smartphone Guru i will also have a online questions going as well...review should be posted by early next week..
I will be doing things like downloading latest version of TCMP player for divx (Coreplayer)how high can i get the bit rate on turbo mode and how well does Asus P525 play with Xpuscaler?? I will be testing Music play back, Asus has bass and treble & preamp adjustment.
Gaming will be tested ETc..
It's so awsome! this was like my 19th celly! But I had to trade it infor a Nokia N93! Remember: New is always in when it comes to tech! Oh. My. Gosh!!! You guys have to totally try it it's so hot! It's nice havin' a millionaire dadday! He knows P. diddy! And Hil.Duff and Lindz lohan! And Also I'm like a total heir to humangous fortune! lUv LoTs!
I live in the Uk and i have just ordered Asus P525..the thing that really appeals to me is the best of both worlds Smartphone/Pda funtionality ,i have a hunch that smartphone apps might work on this phone as well PPc software soon i will know.
From what i have read at the moment this is the fastest PPc phone from spb benchmark testing ,so we know this ia a good quality product.
I feel Asus P525 is hughely under-rated when i get this device i will do a menu review and if you guys have any questions just fire away and i will do my best to answer them.
I know this device does nt have 3g/HSDPA i tried spv 3100 and Mda Vario II i was actually dissappointed as 3.5g as these services only work in 3g Areas which for me is very very patchy so no great shakes that Asus P525 doesnt have this.
I have owned past tense near enough every microsoft Smartphone and PPc and there are times when a smartphone isNT man enough for the job in hand and times when i just want to make a phone call...SO THERES great potential for this device also please note i have seen a couple of photos taken from this device and for a 2meg camera there are actually very good very low noise and sharp and colourful it would scare the pants of a P990I so hold tight this week week commencing 06.11.2006 i should take delivery of my shiny Asus P525 from Mobile Gadgets.
It's now time for gsmarena to make a "REVIEW" on this P990 and TyTN competitor...
Although not from the main stream but hopefully gsmarena can give it a review.
Thanks a million upfront.
this phone has that feature,. all devices with touchscreen enables handwriting recognition, usually Palm OS, Symbian UIQ and Windows Mobile utilizes that..
does touch screen mean it is also capable of handwriting recognition? I really need this feature.
ASUS brand is known for videocards,motherboards, and audio, no doubt that this one(if officially announced) will gonna beat all high end products from the mobile giants,.. same features with XDA Trion/HTC tytn,SE P990... only lacks 3G and this is explainable,.. this is a PocketPC phone, stands as a minicomputer so no much use on 3G videocalling, mostly internet and skype utilizes the use of WIFI(faster)... and personally this is my favorite Hardware Brand... and in the near future, these will pair up with Sony Ericsson o be it's gratest competitor in PDA phones...:-)
