AsusTek unveiled its latest Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition - the Asus
P735 - which allows users to make full use of its 3G capabilities and integrates
network connectivity, video conferencing, multimedia applications and many other
business functions. With a broad range of network connectivity options such as
UMTS 2100 Mhz (only), GSM/GPRS 900/1800/1900 Mhz (but no GSM 850 MHz or EDGE),
GPRS Class 10, WiFi b/+g and Bluetooth 2.0, the P735
allows the mobile executive to be truly connected.
The P735 is powered by Windows Mobile 5.0 for Pocket PC Phone Edition and
features a Marvell Xscale CPU at 520 MHz, 256 MB Flash and 64 MB SDRAM memory
which can be extended via miniSD flash memory cards.
The P735 is packed with many business applications to help make scheduling
and working on the go simpler and more efficient. Utilizing the Windows Mobile
Operating System platform, users can view and edit documents in Excel and Word.
With Asus's Remote Presenter, users can control PowerPoint presentations stored
on a notebook via a Bluetooth connection. They can even read the footnotes on
the P735's screen as they are presenting.
Another added function to help save contacts easily is the P735's business
card recognition feature. The in-built 2 megapixel auto-focus camera can pick
out business card details and store them directly into the contacts section -
omitting the need to carry all the business cards around.
"As phones become increasingly powerful, consumers are asking for one
device that works for all aspects of life, in and out of the office," said
Mr. Jason Lim, Regional Director, Asia Pacific and Japan, Mobile and
Embedded Devices Division, Microsoft Corp. "With the Windows Mobile-powered
P735, Asus is helping people make the professional and personal connections
when and where they need them."
International teleconferencing meeting across up to three different time
zones is now possible with the unique Meeting Planner. This innovative feature
helps to eliminate the hassle of time converting and makes meeting scheduling
more efficient than ever before.
The P735's built-in dual camera, rich audio and visual capabilities allow
users to fully enjoy true multimedia capabilities. The P735 supports music
playback for MP3, WMA, AAC and AAC+ file formats; and users can even enjoy
multimedia streaming from the Internet.
Bundled in the P735 are exclusive Asus software that provide the user with a
variety of helpful options. The My Secret function encrypts and protects
sensitive documents away from unauthorized eyes when activated. The Asus Status
feature keeps the user up to date with the status of the device; and the Profile
function avoids embarrassing rings during meetings.
Neither availability nor estimated prices were announced today.
