    Asus P526 (Pegasus) unboxed

    Phones with built in GPS are becoming more common place and the Asus P526, aka Asus Pegasus, is another device to fall in to that category.

    This is one of the few candy-bar style Windows Mobile devices to include GPS, Touchscreen and a phone keypad and seems to cater for almost everyone.

    There are a few disapointments though. Firstly there is no built in WiFi nor is there 3G/UMTS or HSDPA support. This may limit the phones appeal but when you consider the compact form factor and the cost, £246.80 (Ex. VAT) from Devicewire it could well be an ideal device for business users.

    I’ll be reviewing the P526 shortly but here for your viewing pleasure is our unboxing video.
