Our sister site, CNET Taiwan, first broke news of Asus' upcoming 800MHz handheld a couple of months back, and now the Taiwanese company has finally made it official.
Not only does the P565 have the fastest processor we've seen on a handheld, it also comes with a VGA (480x640) display. As a phone, it has a UMTS radio with HSDPA connectivity up to 3.6Mbps and tri-band GSM. Other common features such as Wi-Fi and GPS are also found in this handset.
Like the P552w, the P565 will come with the manufacturer's own Glide interface. We found this customization reasonably useful in our review of the P552w but not as polished as HTC's TouchFLO. It will be interesting to see if Asus has made any improvements to it in the upcoming device. We have contacted the company for availability and pricing information in Asia and are awaiting a reply.
