Asus has officially announced the release of the P835 smartphone.
Based upon the Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system and running on a 528MHz Qualcomm 7201A processor, the phone will include a large, 3.5-inch WVGA touch-screen that will pack in 800x480 pixels. One of the more outstanding features is its support for HSUPA at a full 7.2Mbps along with a five-megapixel camera that also offers autofocus and video recording.
The handset will arrive with Opera Mobile, pre-loaded for browsing on the internet. To assist in that endeavour, a trackball has been fitted along with Asus' own new and improved Glide user interface. Long conversations will be helped by a decent battery life of around six to seven hours of talking. Further features will include 4GB of included memory plus a microSDHC slot to expand the memory capacity,

The phone can double as a Wi-Fi access point to share its Wi-Fi connection with up to 10 devices. A UK release date and price have yet to be revealed.
Asus has certainly been busy, also developing a series of new handsets with its technology partner, Garmin, under the nuvifone banner, optimised for location-based services and slated for a Q2 release.
