Asus P552W specification review




Asus has launched a new PDA phone (look similar to HTC Touch) named as Asus P552W. It is believed to be the first PDA equipped with new user interface (UI) called Glide. Glide is an innovative touch-responsive user interface that makes navigating and performing tasks on a mobile phone more intuitive and interactive than ever before. As the original Glide online OS features, it is straightforward and user-friendly approach. With Glide, a user can perform navigational functions like zooming, selecting, and scrolling with flicks of the finger.To make Asus P552w more competitive, it operates with 624 Mhz and 128 MB RAM.

This phone has standard features like others PDA phone. But, the only thing I would have a little comment on its screen. It has 2.8 TFT touch screen but with only 65K color. Is there anyway to hav at least 16M color like nokia?...

Fast driven PDA: Which one you think?

Nowadays, PDAs are becoming so fast and features-rich that they're performing multi-tasking that used to belong in the exclusive domain of the PC. A PDA's feature set is probably the most important factor when it comes to deciding which one is right for you, but how well a PDA performs is an important variable that should not be neglected. Performance dictates everything from how fast a PDA opens a file, run program, execute command to how long the device's battery lasts.


PDAs architecture function is very similarly to a personal computer. They comprise of a processor chip, temporary memory, storage memory and a LCD display; driven by high power batteries. The processor type and speed defines the speed at which applications execute on the PDA.The fastest processor is claimed to be running at 624 MHz. Up to date, there are alot of devices using 624 MHz processor. Among the fastest PDAs:
  • Dell Axim X50v (624 Mhz),
  • HP IPaq Hx4700 (624 Mhz),
  • Blackberry Bold 9000 and Storm ( 624 MHz),
  • Xda Atom Life (624 MHz),
  • Asus P552w (624 MHz)
  • Iphone (620 MHz)


Depending on the operating system, different kinds of processors running at different speeds will be available. For instance, PDAs based on Windows Mobile 6. 0 may be available featuring processors running at different speed compare with the Symbian 9.0 OS at the same processor speed. In term of power, higher the processor's speed, the more battery power it will consume. however, if you talk about blackberry and Iphone, they a very excellent battery performance though equipped with more than 600 MHz processor. Though, modern PDAs are still having sufficiently energy to last throughout the day.

While depending on the processor and OS , Memory also need to considered if you are looking for the fastest PDA. A PDA should have enough temporary memory (RAM) to quickly and easily load the necessary application. Lack of RAM unfortunately results in deploying virtual memory, finally resulting in battery drainage. The minimum standards should be: 64MB or128MB of RAM as basic higher requirements. Any quantity upwards of the figure and the PDA should respond quickly and smoothly. Similarly, storage capacity should provide enough room for installing additional applications as well as saving files created using them.

So, which one you think will be the fastest PDA?

Aha...wait the minutes... There is a PDA who speed more that 700MHz. It is LG-KC1, which equipped with PXA320 application processor, speed 800MHz. But it is not really a PDA, rather it is more likely a smartphone.

Minefield : New Chrome killer


New comer from Mozilla is claimed to be the successful Chrome killer. Named as Minefield. It is actually come from Mozilla Firefox 4.0 alpha. Remember still in alpha version, be careful.

Minefield is, in fact, a way to glimpse into the future of Firefox. After spending some time with Minefield, one thing is clear: the future of Firefox is fast. Lightning fast.Even people claim it 10 % faster than Google Chrome.

How it can be a super fast web browser? Simple. Minefield does not have so many features and pre-installed with new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine. Minefield's installation won't affect your current Firefox, so there's no risk trying it. It's fast. Really.

Good companion for top management : Nokia E90 , Iphone or blackberry?



After final testing on the suitable mobile candidate for my Top Management, I try to give the best solution comparing to their task and job responsibility. Between these three device, I might say Iphone is the best to be not with the top management. Iphone is the Mobile music player, while for the top management, they are looking for the good digital secretary, and not only the funky entertainment for them. Good secretary means, the mobile will easily assist the top management to manage all the info/files/data in one mini/super small cabinet, inside the mobile. The assistant should also be able to perform multiple task such as reading email (as fast as possible), sending data, sharing info between others , and the most important is that the mobile assistant should be a very user friendly user interface as the Top Management always fight with time.


talk about Nokia E90 and blackberry Bold 9000, both are having great ability to assist top management on more areas. The problem with Nokia E90 is about its design, bulky block phone. It is good to show off but for those top managements who are really looking for easy to carry, light , useful and heavy usage mobile, you might consider to look into blackberry. It compromise most of the needs from top management. Together with push mail feature and a very outstanding battery life.Furthermore it will take less then a few seconds to reply a quick text. and you will never out of contact.. But if you hate to use small keyboard and no problem with junk and bulky phone, then you can consider Nokia E90 to use.


Hey!, don`t forget about Nokia E71 too. It is merely design for business user. It can be a great rival for Blackberry Bold 9000 and I really mean it. It also got almost everything for top management, except the fast remote email handler, like one in blackberry.

I don`t wanna bring along HTC Touch HD, Samsung 8800 or i7110 or even Gi mobile since their target market are not for top management usage and most of their feature really kill top management if they use them.
