Asus P535

By: narutokun

Convergence is the word that the mode in these days of mobile devices in the packaging more and more things.

Indeed, standalone devices are nearly extinct - you should perhaps the greatest difficulties in the search for a Pocket PC without telephone capacity of our days.

The Asus P535 is a fairly typical example of a Pocket PC Phone, which also creates another technology increasingly in the mix - a GPS (Global Positioning System).

In the Box

Although it is certainly not ugly, but there is hardly anything in the way with which the views Asus P535 - it is a rectangle, which is well in hand, and that is just about everything.

Inside the box, you will receive a very good set of accessories, even if - a car charger, stereo handsfree, USB cable, and even a bendable arm with a suction cup when determining the P535 in your car.

The P535 is also very fade for his looks with his entire software - there are a number of built-in applications, in particular a "My secrets" Request for the encryption of your personal files, a tool that cool World Card Mobile, and even Skype for Pocket PC.

World Card Mobile is pretty cool - it allows you to break photos of business cards and automatically detected and converted to a contact on the Pocket PC.

World Card Mobile works surprisingly well on most business cards, the recognition of text properly and the names of the companies and the description of jobs in their area, but there is apparently a bit of the classic cards that the program stumped.

For the warriors of the road, there are remote Presenter, P535, in a remote control for PowerPoint presentations from your computer with Bluetooth PC.

All in all, a pretty complete collection of software.

GPS Ahoy!

Unfortunately, we could not test GPS capabilities for the unity of the examination, because they are not with the delivery of the software GPS - Asus makes us, however, that prices of the various versions will definitely come with MapKing The popular browser.

AUTO FOCUS: The P535 has a little rubber on the upper right, a connector for external GPS antenna for the improvement of GPS receivers
In any case, the P535 is equipped with the chipset SiRF StarIII GPS, which is one of the most sensitive available today GPS chipsets and should play, the other GPS devices with the same chipset.

We have also tested before MapKing to other machines, and even if it is not so easy to use, it is more than sufficient for most users.

The phone

Have you been to a Pocket PC, the P535 should be familiar territory - which on Windows Mobile 5.0, and there are all tools to increase productivity in the office integrated system, namely the mobile versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Internet Explore.

The performance is too beautiful, lively, with the 520 MHz Intel XScale processor, speed up or slow down, depending on the CPU.

The whole package is pretty small, and feels good in the hand - in fact, if you are currently using a handheld PC that you feel at home with the P535.

However, I must mention that since the P535 runs completely on a touch-screen and does not come with any kind of tariff keyboard or alphanumeric keyboard, the normal people upgrade from a mobile phone to which they know, a little culture shock.

CLOSE UP: The P535 has a stereo 2.5 mm on the left-hand side and a mini-USB port for synchronization.
To enter your text, you need to either the suspension or Recogniser Letter Recogniser (whether you need to learn a new style of writing), or a small software Qwerty keyboard.

None of these methods, it is easy for a person who has never used a computer bag before you things easy as writing a text message or a Word document.

Even if you are capable, in one of the methods for entering text, it is not possible to the text to "feel" as we on our T9 mobile alphanumeric keyboard.

However, if you are not in the SMS and do everything in your company with a call to the people, then it may be okay - if not, I recommend to look for a product that is with a certain form of a keyboard.

What will WLAN, the P535 has most of them - he is with WLAN and Bluetooth, but strangely not supported plain-Jane GPRS.

The phone has no 3G or EDGE, a real trace of a real PDA phone as this would really benefit from high-speed data connection.

Powerful Images

One area in which the P535 is truly excellent, in the recording of images with 2-megapixel digital camera.

The autofocus camera (still a rare feature in the mobile phones), and produced some very good pictures when compared to most mobile phones and PDAs with an integrated camera.

For entertainment, the P535 comes with stereo input, the less commonly 2.5mm stereo - that is, it must use an adapter if you want to plug in a pair of headphones with a 3.5 mm stereo jack.

As for the battery, the P535 has managed to last about two days, with very little for the use of WLAN - if you go in to serve for the reproduction of music, movies and surfing on the WiFi, you probably you will find the task every day.

Conclusion

In the absence of an alphanumeric keyboard, a slide-out Qwerty keyboard customs, most casual users will also find P535 difficult to use - you should perhaps better be present for the Asus P525, which is not alphanumeric keyboard.

For advanced users, the absence of 3G and EDGE could also be in the compensation, but to be honest, the P535 has WiFi.

It is not so bad if - the phone, the integrated GPS SiRF StarIII chipset and the auto focus camera are all good - these three elements can in the street from adventurers, they mainly for navigation and communication as warriors of the road.
