BenQ today announced the P50, a powerful new PDA phone running Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition for Pocket PC. The P50 is a quad-band GSM device with a QVGA touch-screen, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a 1.3 megapixel camera, and a QWERTY keyboard. The device is powered by a 416 MHz Intel PXA270 processor, with 64 MB of RAM and 64 MB of ROM, plus an SD card slot for additional memory. The P50 is expected to be available in Asia around March/April, and in the U.S. around June/July.
Any obvious advantages over the "Blue Angel"? (Siemens SX66, etc, etc, etc)
I havn't tried compared dimensions & weight or claimed battery life.
Bluetooth version may be different too and of course CPU & memories.
But the core functionality seems the same to me...
1st True attempted at a single handed PPC Phone
I'm a PPC lover, I've owned 3 models by HP, but after playing with the treo 650 in the store for an hour, i decided to go with PalmOne. WOW.. I love the 650, everything about it is awesome.
I think I'll wait until the PPC 2005 OS is released.
Monster of a phone
It has everything including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a 1.3 megapixel camera.
Does it have Video capture?
The bigger question is: Is it coming to T-Mobile?
The specs say that it is a GSM phone.
(The QVGA display is the icing on the cake - pretty)
