Asus has recently unveiled their latest smartphone — the W835 and based on the specs it sounds like it may be worthy of a purchase. As for the specs, it features a 3.5-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 800 x 480 and is running Windows Mobile 6.1 with the Glide UI. Of course the features do not not stop there, the W835 also includes Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, a 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus, a microSD card slot and 4GB of internal storage. Additionally, the W835 also has a trackball (similar to the BlackBerry Pearl) for navigation along with an onscreen virtual keyboard.
While the feature set seems to be complete, there is still more that sets the W835 apart. It offers a built-in ability to share its Internet connectivity. The W835 is able to act as a Wi-Fi access point and can share its 3G connection with up to ten other devices. This is done through a “simple” to use interface that even re-connects dropped connections automatically.
Of course, with all the good news feature-wise, Asus did leave a few details out on their press release such as the price and release date.
