Asus Working on Omnia-Rivaling Smartphone, Says Rumor

Illustration for article titled Asus Working on Omnia-Rivaling Smartphone, Says Rumor

Leaked photos of an Asus smartphone have hit the intertubes, and make it look like the maker of the Eee PC has the Samsung Omnia in its sights. The photos of the Glaxy7 show a slim candybar cellphone that appears to be touchscreen-only—it looks too slim for a slide-out keypad—with a 5-megapixel auto-focus cam, front camera and a main touchpad/trackball controller. Specs are rumored to include a 3.5-inch screen, Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro running Glide 1.5 UI, 3G, quad-band GSM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, AGPS, and 4GB of on-board memory. Little else is known for sure about the cellphone yet, particularly regarding pricing or timing. Watch this space. [WMpoweruser via CrunchGear and Pocket-lint]

That sure looks nice. I'm still not over the fact that the Touch Diamond doesn't sport a landscape on-screen keyboard in all applications, so if the Asus does, I might switch from HTC.
