Not yet the Xda Zest by Asus I wrote about earlier last month, received some information about the so far unknown Asus Glaxy7 (Zest) which seems to be an interesting Windows Mobile touchscreen smartphone. According to, the Galxy7 features Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional and support quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE/ as well as triband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUAP plus WiFi, Bluetooth and aGPS. The flat 3.5" touchscreen supports WVGA (800x480 pixel) and features Asus' new Glide 1.5 UI. The main autofocus camera supports a resolution up to 5 megapixel. The Galxy 7 is backed up by 4 GB inbuilt flash memory which can be expanded by microSD cards:

According to, the device also features an accelerometer and - as visible on the photo above - a BlackBerry-like track ball instead of a D-Pad.
The release date isn't confirmed yet but it could be during October. A price isn't given yet.

Cheers ~ Arne

This is looking really nice and has certainly landed itself a spot on my "OMG can I spend that much on a phone" list. Few questions and thoughts though.

Asus's Glide UI looked a little uninspiring back in June. Will 1.5 be comparable to Touchflo3D, Iphone and SE's Panels?
What is Asus's support like. Can we expect a WinMo7 update? Regular patches? Android firmware?
Specs seem a little too good to be true, usually this means either a huge price or the device will be crippled by a poor Ram/Cpu.

Hoping this is out in October and I can finally buy myself a new phone, whatever it turns out to be. smile
