Asus will have their first US PDA release at the end of this month when the MyPal A716 is released. Asus is well known outside of the US and their older PDA, the A620, is still regarded as the fasted Pocket PC on the market.
There’s a good deal that’s exciting about this unit. The dual wireless, dual card slots and an optional 3000 mAh battery are the highlights. The sleek silvery-purple design makes the A716 attractive as well. Asus is expected to release this unit at the end of the month for $500.
