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 (opens in new tab).

  • 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...
  • What's a weekend? :)
  • 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.
  • Amen.
  • Hi Guys, Did a review on this device. Thought I should share... Cheers!
