ASUS keeps PDAs alive with sleeker A626

ASUS A626 PDA

ASUS today refreshed its MyPal PDAs with the A626. The company hopes to challenge the increasing dominance of smartphones by releasing a handheld small enough to compete with phones in size but large enough to work as a notebook's replacement in some situations: the A626 is only 0.62 inches thick and weighs 158 grams despite an attention-getting stainless steel body and a 3.5-inch touchscreen. The PDA uses Windows Mobile 5 to browse the web and local networks with 802.11g Wi-Fi, and can use its Bluetooth 2.0 linkup to remotely control a presentation hosted on a computer.

As is the case with many of its PDAs, ASUS' latest also has MP3/WMA audio and WMV video support. The A626 should be on sale now in China, parts of Europe, and Russia; launches are planned soon for Thailand and the US.
