UNVEILED: Asus M930W Windows Mobile Communicator look-alike shows its face [UPDATE]

French website has informed us that they got information about a new, so far unknown Asus smartphone called M930W. This Windows Mobile 6 Nokia E90 look-alike smartphone seems to run, according to the screenshots (which could be marketing fakes anyway), Windows Mobile 6 Standard (non-touchscreen) instead of Windows Mobile 6 Professional (touchscreen) while speaks about Windows Mobile 6 Professional anyway. Other features, according to, are a Marvel PXA270M CPU at 520 MHz, triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE at 900/1800/1900 MHz, singleband UMTS/HSDPA at 2100 MHz up 3.6 Mbps, WiFi b/g and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR:

Furthermore, the not yet officially announced Asus M930W sports 256 MB ROM and 128 MB RAM as well as a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera.

I'm not sure about the inner main-display, if it is QVGA or VGA but it seems some space is wasted and a WVGA screen might be the more appropriate option to use.

Prices, release dates and availability wasn't given yet.

UPDATE: Okay, it must be a Windows Mobile 6 Standard smartphone since it features a Home and Back button, not a Windows Start flag or OK key and I'm not sure if Windows Mobile 6 Standard supports WVGA at all.

Cheers ~ Arne

Can WM6 switch between different resolutions (QVGA outside, WVGA inside)?

AFAIK, at least with Windows Mobile 6, it's possible. On the other hand, it's the first device of this kind - having a full screen inside and outside, not just using an auxiliary display outside and therefore I don't have any first hand experiences with this kind of display combinations yet.

It must be Standard, as it has all the Standard keys (e.g. home and back) too.

Seems such a waste.

Exactly, that's what I noticed as well and why I've updated the posting after. It must be a Standard device, not a Professional smartphone but truly this limits the devices functionality.
