Asus P565 Unveiled

Asus P565 Unveiled

Asus has announced what it claims is the world's fastest smartphone to date: the Windows Mobile 6.1-based P565. 
The business-oriented PDA phone, which has a Marvell TavorP 800MHz processor, was announced on Friday. The only other 'phone' with a processor as fast as 800MHz is the HTC Shift; although, since the Shift runs Vista, it is really less a smartphone and more a small notebook. 
By contrast, the processor used in Apple's iPhone 3G has the potential to run at 667MHz, although it only runs at 400MHz — probably to save battery life. 
The P565 uses a 1300mAh battery — similar to that used in rival devices such as HTC's Touch Diamond, which has the same screen-size and resolution — with Asus claiming up to four hours of talktime. However, the Touch Diamond offers a claimed maximum of five-and-a-half hours of talktime using its 528MHz processor, reflecting how the faster processor in the P565 negatively affects its battery

Folks waiting for the Asus P565 need not hold their breath any longer, as this Windows Mobile 6.1-powered handset is finally unveiled to the masses. Time to take a look at the specifications and drool over it :- 

* 800MHz Marvell processor 
* 2.8" VGA LCD display 
* Glide technology 
* HSDPA 3.6Mbps support 
* UMTS 2100, EDGE/GPRS/GSM 900/1800/1900 connectivity 
* 256MB flash memory 
* 128MB SDRAM 
* Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR connectivity 
* 3 megapixel camera with autofocus 
* microSD/SDHC memory card slot 

All of the above are crammed into a body that measures a mere 102mm x 60.5mm x 16mm, tipping the scales at 120 grams. No idea on pricing or availability though.
