ASUS P552w touchscreen phone announced


Perhaps a little too late to generate any significant excitement, all of which has already been consumed by the iPhone 3G, ASUS on Friday announced its P552w touchscreen phone. And the phone’s USP seems well-worn too - a 3D-like touchscreen interface that utilizes “Gester” technology, allowing the user to control the touchscreen via “glides” of a finger. Remind you of HTC Touch ? Us too.

Going under the hood, however, there are a couple of features where the ASUS definitely scores over (or is nearly as good as) its competition. Take the knockout processor speed at 624MHz, for an example. Or the unique ASUS SMS Location Link feature which will allow users to communicate their location easily via Google Maps. The device also includes a custom software kit nicknamed “Multi-Home” containing applications, that ASUS claims, make for easy music and video/photo-viewing.

If you do decide to go for the ASUS P552w what you get is 256MB of RAM, 128MB of DDR, an expansion slot for microSD / SDHC cards and a 2.0-megapixel camera. Connectivity is provided by Bluetooth 2.0, USB 1.1 and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi.

And you might have plenty of time to change your mind too, as the pricing and availability of the phone is yet to be divulged.
