ASUS p525 Phone in US

Whenever the FCC posts documents for unreleased hardware, you can be sure that it will not only show up in the US, but very soon as well. That means that ASUS' p525 phone, which appeared in Taiwan just two months ago, is bound to appear in the US before long - a fact significant in no small part due to ASUS' effective absence in the US as a phone maker. The phone is fairly typical of higher-end phones with quad-band GSM and GPRS, a 2 megapixel camera, and Bluetooth 2.0, although the lack of EDGE or other mobile broadband is surprising What makes the p525 stand out are the 802.11b wireless and the use of Windows Mobile 5.0 on a phone with a traditional number pad: most phones that use such a full-featured OS are smartphones with larger keyboards (such as the Treo 700w).
