The new Asus M930 smartphone, spotted at the Computex Taipei 2008 show, resembles the LG enV handset. Featuring a full, sliding, QWERTY keyboard, the M930 fills a hole in its own product portfolio.
According to the Mobile Magazine website, when the mobile phone is closed, the M930 can be used as a basic candy bar-type handset with a standard keypad and a screen measuring 2in. Once the QWERTY keypad springs into action, you can access a larger 2.6in TFT screen. This almost offers two phones in one, providing a welcome flexibility that means that the handset will suite a variety of situations.
Other features include both tri-band GSM/EDGE and HSDPA for fast data transfer. Based on the TI OMAP 2431 (450MHz) processor, the phone runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 and includes both Bluetooth and Wifi 802.11b/g. The M930 features two cameras: A standard 2MP unit plus another for video calls. You also receive a microSDHC expansion slot.
