MobiFrance recently got its hands on the "Asus Galaxy Mini" (codename), a brand new entry-level Windows Mobile 6 Professional smartphones from Asus, which reminds somewhat on the HTC Touch Cruise design. However, unlike the HTC Touch Cruise, the Asus Galaxy Mini is a 2.5G GSM/GPRS/EDGE Windows Mobile smartphone only, powered by a TI CPU at 200 Mhz. Even if an entry level device only, Asus new - yet to be officially announced - smartphone also features WiFi and Bluetooth as well as includes a GPS receiver. Furthermore it sports a 2 megapixel camera, a microSD card slot and a QVGA touchscreen:

The Asus Galaxy Mini (commercial name still unknown) will be available in several stylish colors, including pink (as on the photos), blue and champagne.
According to MobiFrance, the expected retail price is somewhere between 300 and 400 Euro. A release date wasn't given so far.

UPDATE: Looks like this pre-release device is already running Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. At least the "Getting Started" row on the Today screen indicates it but it's not yet clear if the device will be released with Windows Mobile 6 or 6.1. Hopefully we will know more next week.

Cheers ~ Arne
