Today, more details of Asus E600, which is the only offering from Asus that is powered by Windows Phone 7, have been leaked. We heard some rumors about it last month when it was said to be undergoing FCC testing. Some images and a video of the Asus E600 have been leaked out today.
The phone seems to have a stylish design. It will feature a 4.0 inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display with a WVGA resolution. The E600 is powered by a 1 GHz processor and will include 512 MB RAM. It will have a 5 mega pixel camera with LED flash and 720p video recording. In addition, the phone comes with a microSDHC card slot and a 1300mAh battery. It is said to feature an aluminium front and a plastic back. Most probably, the phone will be launched at the Mobile World Congress in February.
Well, we have seen such specifications been featured in HTC, Samsung and LG devices. So, Asus E600 has nothing unique to offer.
HTC launched its first Windows Phone namely, HD7 back in October. The HD7 has a 4.3-inch WVGA TFT screen that offers a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. It is powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8250 chipset, and gives you 576MB of RAM. The device comes with a 5-megapixel camera. The phone is rather similar to the HD2, albeit with the ability to record 720p high definition video at 24 frames per second. The phone has 16GB of memory, and offers built-in apps for Netflix, T-Mobile TV, etc.
HTC also has HTC Surround, HTC Mozart and 7 Trophy, which are available in the markets. The latest one is the HTC Pro.
LG launched two phones running Microsoft Windows 7 OS namely, the Optimus 7Q and the Optimus 7, back in October. An interesting feature about the two phones is that you will find a preloaded multimedia sharing application called Play To in both the Quantum and the Optimus 7, which lets you wirelessly stream videos, photos, and music to other DLNA-supported devices, such as TVs, stereos, computers and other consumer electronics devices.
In addition, the Optimus 7 has a 3.8-inch WVGA capacitive LCD screen, while the LG Quantum sports a 3.5inch display. Both phones are powered by Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon processors clocked at 1GHz, and offer 16GB of internal memory. They connect using Bluetooth 2.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11b/g. You can also expect support for HSPA 7.2 networking. Camera enthusiasts will find a 5-megapixel shooter on the back in both the models, which can shoot 720p high definition video.
We think if the Asus E600 phone had been launched earlier, it would have seen better prospects in the market. We will keep you posted on the phone. Meanwhile have a look at the video and image of E600.
