ASUS introduced the ASUS P565, a business PDA phone that boasts an 800 MHz processor.
The ASUS P565 features a Marvell TavorP 800 MHz processor, 256 MB Flash + 128 MB DDR SDRAM memory, expansion slot MicroSD with SDHC support, WLAN 802.11b+g , USB v1.1(FS), Bluetooth 2.0+EDR for connectivity, and SiRF Star III with InstantFix for GPS. For pictures, video and video telephony, it features a 3M pixel auto focus main camera, and a 300K pixel camera.
Featuring ASUS’ touch-driven user interface – Glide – the stylish, leather-accented P565 delivers graphics and system performance beyond anything else on the market at present. This enables the P565 to glide through resource-intensive tasks effortlessly and to handle heavy multitasking exceptionally well – making it ideal for businesspeople who demand uncompromising performance and maximum speed from their productivity tools.
The ASUS P565 is geared toward the business community. The coupling of the 800 MHz processor and Glide – an innovative touch-responsive user interface exclusive to select ASUS PDA phones – makes for a powerful, productivity-boosting combination. The processor renders the P565 particularly amenable to multitasking, while Glide enables users to switch between tasks rapidly with their fingertips.
The P565 also comes with a potent suite of business-oriented features and software. Its operating system is Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. It also features Word editor, Excel editor, PowerPoint viewer, Windows Live, MSN, Voice Commander and Push Email (Exchange Server). Other useful applications such as Anytime Launcher and Multi-Home enable users to view their calendars, the times of local and visiting cities, weather reports, online news and much more—all with an intuitive tap, slide or flick of their fingers.
The ASUS P565 is equipped with a 2.8″ VGA (480 by 640 pixels) high-resolution touchscreen. Photographs look crisper and more true-to-life, while minute details in business documents, such as the individual cells in spreadsheets, are reproduced much more clearly – reducing eye fatigue over periods of prolonged use.
Glide is a revolutionary touch-responsive user interface that enables users to perform a variety of navigational actions – such as selecting, zooming, scrolling and flipping – easily through simple flicks of their fingers. Incorporated into Glide are also applications that enable users to access a wide range of functions such as looking up the latest news, checking the weather forecast, viewing photo slideshows and listening to music within a few finger taps. These applications, dubbed Multi-Home, Anytime Launcher, EziPhoto, EziMusic, and Business Card Recognition give the expression “the world at your fingertips” a whole new meaning.
Its battery lid is lined with black synthetic leather, that contrasts nicely with the P565’s modern, high-gloss face, and lends the phone a natural tactility and evocative appeal.
The ASUS P565 measures 102 mm x 60.5 mm x 16 mm, and it weights 120 g (with battery). The standby time is 250-300 hours with 3G and 200-250 hours with 2G. The talk time is 3 hours with 3G and 4 hours with 2G.
