Asus drops a hot little number in the P835


The black slab gods have bestowed on us another behemoth, this one born from the bowels of Asus. Behold, the P835. [via]

OK, we couldn't keep up the alluring alliteration any longer. But what we have here is a sporty little multimedia phone. It's got a 3.5-inch WVGA screen running Windows Mobile 6.1 with its own custom "Glide" interface on top, Opera Mobile for your browsing needs, a 5-megapixel camera, a trackball, and it reportedly can serve as an honest to goodness wireless access point. And, again, we'll point out the little Windows flag button, which could well point to a future 6.5 upgrade.

Full specs after the break, and more online at ASUS' Web site.

  • Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional
  • Tri-band HSPA (900/1900/2100); Quad-band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900).
  • 115 x 59 x 13.9 mm; 148 grams
  • 3.5-inch 800x480 touchscreen
  • Qualcomm 7201A processor at 528 MHz
  • 288MB RAM/256MB ROM
  • 4 gigs internal storage
  • MicroSD
  • WiFi b/g
  • Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR
  • GPS
  • 1100mAh battery

Asus drops a hot little number in the P835


Finally some news on a weekend - I was beginning to think you guys actually had the nerve to take off Saturday and Sunday like the rest of us...

ooh - only 1100mAh?

4 gig internal sounds good though - i just wish more games for windows mobile supported the 800x480 resolution

My kingdom for a non-Qualcomm 528Mhz phone. I'm so tempted by all these newer HTC/Asus/etc offerings. But so many of them are backed by that platform, one that has underwhelmed me in my experiences with it.
