Asus launches the 800MHz P565 as the worlds fastest business PDA phone

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:08PM EST

Asus announced on Friday the P565, a Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional extraordinaire that comes with a blazing 800 MHz processor and a 2.8″ VGA touchscreen display. The black, leather-backed handset is targeted for the business folk and features its own Glide UI that is optimized for the touchscreen device. It also packs the SIRF Star III GPS chipset that is found on most stand alone GPS devices. The rest of the specs for the new Asus P565 are pretty standard for a smartphone:

  • HSDPA 3.6Mbps, UMTS 2100, EDGE/GPRS/GSM 900/1800/1900, Class 10
  • Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional
  • 2.8″ TFT, 65K-color Touchscreen, VGA (480 x 640 pixels) Display
  • Marvell TavorP 800 MHz Processor
  • 256 MB Flash + 128 MB DDR SDRAM
  • MicroSD with SDHC support
  • WLAN 802.11b+g
  • Bluetooth 2.0+EDR
  • GPS : SiRF Star III with InstantFix
  • WAP Browser / SMS / MMS / Email / MSN / Push E-mail
  • Battery : 1300 mAh Li-Ion
  • Standby Time : 250-300 hrs with 3G and 200-250 hrs with 2G
  • Talk Time : 3 hrs with 3G and 4 hrs with 2G
  • Dimensions : 102 mm x 60.5 mm x 16 mm

No pricing or release date but with the phone missing the US 850MHz band and the US 3G bands, we wouldn’t expect to see it come stateside in its current form. Nonetheless, we applaud Asus for upping the ante and releasing the world’s fastest handset with a high resolution screen and a stylish form factor.
