HH P552w Black ASUS P552w Glide Enabled PDA Phone

ASUS today launched the ASUS P552w PDA phone which features Glide – an
innovative touch-responsive user interface that makes navigating and performing
tasks on a mobile phone more intuitive and interactive than ever before.
Equipped with a 624MHz processor and a host of market-leading features such as
3.5G HSDPA connectivity, GPS and seamless Google integration*, the ASUS P552w
PDA phone is a perfect fit for the rising tide of young, tech-savvy
professionals who appreciate a good-looking mobile companion that packs a wealth
of fun features and yet is no slouch when it comes to work.

Glide to a New Mobile Experience
Underpinning the ASUS P552w’s revolutionary touch-responsive user interface is
its cutting-edge Gester technology that enables users to perform a variety of
navigational actions – such as selecting, zooming, scrolling and flipping –
easily through simple flicks of their fingers. Incorporated into Glide are also
applications that enable users to access a wide range of functions such as
looking up the latest news, checking the weather forecast, viewing photo
slideshows and listening to music within a few finger taps. These applications,
dubbed Multi-Home, Anytime Launcher, EziPhoto, and EziMusic, give the expression
"the world at your fingertips" a whole new meaning.

Unprecedented Processing Power, Speed and Connectivity
The ASUS P552w boasts one of the most powerful CPUs (624MHz) on the market
today. Apart from posting exceptional Vsbenchmark scores, the ASUS P552w’s
real-world results are equally tangible – applications and games run noticeably
faster and video frame rates are markedly smoother. The ASUS P552w also features
3.5G HSDPA (3.6Mbps) connectivity for the fastest Internet browsing, file
sharing and TV program-streaming experience possible. Furthermore, it offers
Bluetooth, WLAN 802.11b/g, GPS, USB and other connectivity standards to enable
easy data transfers to and from other devices.

Deep Google Integration
The ASUS P552w features Google Maps* which not only facilitates navigation, but
is capable of furnishing users with information on points of interest. The ASUS
P552w’s navigation capabilities are further bolstered by a feature known as ASUS
SMS Location Link. With this exclusive feature, users at two different locations
can locate each other easily by sending each other SMS messages. Clicking on the
URLs which are automatically embedded in the sent messages will link the phones
up to Google Maps, which will then provide the users with clear directions on
how to get to each other’s positions. The ASUS P552w also features a convenient
Google Search Bar on the Today screen that makes it easier to perform online
queries.

EziPhoto, EziMusic and Other Applications
The ASUS P552w comes preinstalled with applications that allow users to get an
easy handle on entertainment. The most exciting of these are EziPhoto and
EziMusic. EziPhoto enables users to flip through their photo collection with
their fingertips, akin to how they would with a real album. It also has a
Calendar option which organizes and displays the thumbnails of photos users have
taken according to the dates in which they were snapped, allowing them to relive
those moments in chronological order at a single glance. EziMusic offers an
interactive interface – complete with exciting animations – for users to play
and manage their music, performing each task with colorful aplomb. The ASUS
P552w also houses applications that enable easy access to web content like RSS
newsfeeds, YouTube movies and photos on Flickr, ensuring that users have a full
complement of entertainment options to choose from while out of the house or
office.
