Asus P565, 800Mhz In Your Pocket
After weeks, actually months, of teasing here’s the Asus P656, the first Windows Mobile 6.1 phone with a 800MHz CPU (Marvell TavorP). Featuring a 2.8” VGA LCD and Glide Technology (equivalent HTC’s Touch One), this new WiMo device is fully loaded with HSDPA 3.6Mbps, UMTS 2100, EDGE/GPRS/GSM 900/1800/1900, Class 10, 256MB of flash memory and 128MB of DDR SDRAM, Wifi B/G, Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR, a 3Mpix AF camera, GPS, microSD with SDHC support for a total size of 102 x 60.5 x 16 mm and 120g.
This said, we may all be excited by this 800MHz CPU, but whatever CPU you put in a badly designed device, you’ll still have a bad experience. I’m not saying the P565 is crap, but using a Windows Mobile PDA and Smartphone for over 10 years, I assure you Asus didn’t fine tweak it and it will be hard getting the full potential out of its 800MHz. We’re not talking about your average Intel CPU here, don’t confuse yourself, its CPU may not be as powerful as a good old 800MHz PIII. Nevertheless I’m happy to see Asus releasing something new, powerful on paper with a descent VGA screen.
