by Reads (7,392)

Three new PocketPCs from Acer

The first new model, the N50, comes with a 312 MHz processor, 64 MB RAM, 64 MB ROM, QVGA screen, dual slots, and Bluetooth. The second, the N50 Premium, has a 520 MHz processor and 128 MB RAM in addition to the features of the N50 basic.

The third model, the N35, features a built in Global Positioning System receiver along with a 266 MHz processor, 64 MB RAM, and no wireless. While it’s nice to see GPS, the rest of the N35’s specs are definitely sub-par.



Benq P50 preorders for $450

Expansys USA is now accepting pre-orders for the BenQ P50 PocketPC phone. The P50 is similar in size to the Treo line of Palm phones, and features quad-band GSM/GPRS (Class 10), Bluetooth, WiFi, a thumb keyboard, and a 1.3 megapixel camera. The most remarkable part is that Expansys lists the P50 at a price of US$450, which is literally half the price of the equivalently featured HTC Blue Angel, and is also considerably below the price of a carrier-locked Treo 650.



Asus A730 with WiFi finally shipping

The vaporware cometh. After being delayed for somewhere around six months, Asus is finally shipping their flagship PocketPC. The A730W, like the existing A730, has a VGA screen, dual slots, USB Host, a 1.3 MP camera, and Bluetooth, while adding WiFi and 128 MB RAM which were lacking from the original.
