Well, now. This week's off to a good start, first with Sprint's integrated picture mail being linked, and now with this little gem.

Enter the Asus Glaxy7 [via wmpoweruser], an obvious answer to the Samsung Omnia. And it indeed is a looker.

What's reportedly under the hood:

  • Windows Mobile 6.1.
  • EDGE (850/900/1800/1900), WCDMA (900/1900/2100). That's bad news for the U.S., though, without the 850 MHz band for 3G.
  • 5MP camera!
  • 800x480 3.5-inch touchscreen.
  • 4 hours talk time, 200 hours standby.
  • 4 gigs of memory.
  • MicroSD card.
  • Trackball navigation.
  • Accelerometer.
  • Dimensions 115mm x 59mm x 13.8mm.
  • WiFi.
  • aGPS.
  • Bluetooth 2.0.

A possible October launch also is mentioned. Let's hope we see this one sooner rather than later.
