In a sales brochure marked "confidential", ASUS has confirmed further details of its upcoming P525 Pocket PC phone. Earlier thought to be using GSM on the 900, 1800 and 1900 frequency bands only, we now know that our brothers and sisters in the US will be happy campers too, with full support of 850 Mhz already built in. The document PDANEWS.de got hold of also mentions an AKU 2.3 update to Windows Mobile 5, which is either a typo or the very first mention of this particular update, before even Microsoft had a chance to officially announce it. Besides push email, no details are given as to what additional functionality it might include.

Weighing a mere 160g, its 1300 mAh battery gives you a maximum of 3,5 hours to tell your friends how happy you are to own this cool device or up to 200 hours in standby mode. The sales brochure also mentions an optional MiniSD-to-VGA adaptor, suggesting that the P525s memory slot must be SDIO capable.

The P525 uses Skype to make VoIP calls, putting its fast 416 Mhz Intel processor to good use. You better be in range of a WiFi hotspot though, to get somewhat decent voice quality. Wireless support is kind of a mixed bag, with only 802.11b WiFi, but Bluetooth already supporting the faster and much enhanced version 2.0 (including stereo audio streaming). ASUS also makes a point of highlighting the ability to scan business cards and to securely encrypt confidential files, which didnt work out that well with this brochure, eh?
