it does look like the n70. so what?
the n70 has a very nice form factor: succinct and very handy... and probably this phone will behave the same way too... it copied the n70's form factor and even improved the fascia with a very nice finish.
the looks department is highly subjective but the specs sheet is very impressive. wifi, gps (how often do we use this anyway?), good battery life, generous display, HSDPA and satisfactory processor and computing power are some of the features we generally want from a PDA.
if this phone falls into an agreeable price range, then it will surely be a winner.
i just hope that ASUS improves their marketing strategy, which I think is one of the flaws of the company leading to poor visibility and product recognition.
as with other pocket pc phones, it has 2 obvious advantages over the N95: the convenience of touchscreen navigation esp when scrolling and panning of images and documents, and tons of MS-based applications that you have been accustomed to use...
the battleground is plain and simple when deciding to own a sophisticated phone/device: pocket PC vs Symbian s60. the potential of these devices are maximized depending on the owner's ability to add apps that take full advantage of the device.
Why bother about copied design? Its a norm now. Asus come out with good PDA phones as far as concern.
If ASUS has maintained at least 2.8" screen size (or even larger), then P750 would be my next PPC. Nowadays, bigger screen is more attractive because of web surfing, playing various videos.
Once again. Mini-USB is NOT comparable to USB. Colors, fine, but I don't find it necessary for that many colors to be on a screen this small.
You cant hate on the N70.....in its day it was state of the art.......i.e three years ago.
Your just mad you didnt get it when it was hot.
A lot of you guys are not reading properly.
It's Bluetooth 2.0 and USB 1.1
Bluetooth 2.0 is fine and nothing is wrong with it.
USB 1.1 means that it is not a mini-USB anymore and probably can read memory sticks. Not that many phones have USB instead of mini-USB.
according pdadb ("http://www.pdadb.net/index.php?m=specs&id=804") it has radio (also TMC is supported)!
I have had P505, I have P535, I WILL HAVE P750!!!
To have ASUS or to die!!!
Other opinions are wrong!
you guys are making all this stupid comment about this phone, first of all it's not and N70, and it does not even look like an n70, also what is wrong with usb 1.1? it's not that slow, and wtf TV? who need that on the phone? you must be nets to watch tv on the small screen, get a really 40" plasma and watch it at home.
also about the memory card, there is the 4GB micro sdhc, that's alot space for the crap you want to curry with you...
and it use windows mobile 6 professional, if you have not use it, then don't make a comment about it, but other wise you probably don't want to use nokia anymore.
the purpose of this phone is for business use, it's not for music or photo, it has all the function that business critical needs.
and it has wifi, also as for the GPS, its build into the phone, and it works very well, come with a call filter, you can filter the call you recieved and put number on the black list, so when ever they call you, they can't get thought.
hum... in first look keyboard looks like nokia N70 too BAAAAAAAD.
this phone needs qwerty keyboard not N70's!!!
this phone comes with unlimited call records & phone book (not a surprise!) , microSDHC (good! bless the 4GB!) , 520MHz cpu (highest speed) , edge & 3G (buy a N95!) , WMM 6.0P , 3.15MP Camera , GPS , 6hour talk time
these are the best things that I can find.
there are some BAAAAAAAAAAAAD features!
like 65K display! I don't respect 16M display, but at least 262k?!?!?!
64MB SDRAM??? are you a cave man?!?! this is 2008 my son! not 1708!!!
USB 1.1??? For SDHC??????? USB3 is comeing you say 1.1!?!? my boy you need e card reader!
huh! I'm tired...
at the end some software features make me nerves! because I don't know what are they!
asus phones ROCK!!!! i have a P525, wich looks almost the same with this one and has almost same features and for the moment I wouldn't change it for anything. P750 is definetly going to be my next phone!!! YEY
