Good Phone. Value for Money. Bought it for Rs 12990 and Rs 1200 extra for Memory card.
Excellent Screen clarity and rich colour.
Camera is not so good for video recording. However for Still photos, this phone rocks.
No issues till now, except for battery life.
Dont expect much from battery. Stays for around 2 days for me (I am not a heavy caller). For heavy calls the battery might last for around 1 day.
No software for GPS. I am using Google maps.
Pavi, 20 Jul 2008i think its good for the money At what price you purchased and whats ur opinion
I bought the thing and besides that there is no WI-FI everything seems to be OK. It's handy, it works, it does everything I need.
I have it for two months now and I do not understand - am I the only one that has no problems with Asus P526 or everyone else here lies in their posts.
To those who intend to buy it:
If you realy need this king of PDA/GSM it's worth the money paid.
But dont forget - there is no Wi-Fi.
Nice day to you all.
Most of problems i read here would've never been problems if the users manual was read before use!! To all those who are facin problems in typin messages try the transcriber!all you need to do is write on your screen!works lik a charm, infact works even better than the one on htc...have fun.

Does anyone know whether this set has Pocket Office or not? If so then is it only Viewer or editor as well? Need to know urgently coz i'd like to buy the set.
hello guys. i have this piece of junk for 3 months now and i feel like smashing it against the walls. it keeps blocking out of the blue and it takes many many hours to unblock. i have the latest firmware version and it`s no use. do you have any idea what should i do ? (beside throwing it away). i would appreciate any suggestions. thanks
Hello Everyone.I really need your help guys!! In my P526 PDA,I have dowloaded the patch of T9 from main ASUS site and installed it on my PDA,but unfortunately the auto word completion in keboard mode is still not functioning while writting a message.Can anyone help me on this.Gr8ly thankful to you.
I just bought the P526 for my wife to replace her ageing O2 XDA II. Since she uses it more for it's PDA function, it does not matter that it has no WiFi. She finds it really nice because of it's small size. My problem is when using the keypad to write messages / notes, it always defaults to T9 input. You have to press the * button to be able to choose Multi-tap input everytime you have to write a new message. Since English is not our primary language, She finds it inconvenient. Is there a way to be able to make Multi-tap the default setting?
