Asus highlights super-slim wireless PDA
Four years ago, Asus introduced what it claimed was the world's thinnest PDA, the MyPal A620. The company has just launched the device's successor in all but name: the A626, an "exceptionally thin" model with Wi-Fi wireless connectivity.
The A620 still has the edge on thickness: it was just 1.3cm front-to-back, compared to the A626's 1.6cm. The A620 was later joined by the A620BT, a version with Bluetooth on board. The A626 has Bluetooth too - version 2.0, to be precise. The WLAN link is 802.11b/g.
The A626 sports a 3.5in, 240 x 320 display surrounded by a stainless steel shell. Inside sits a 312MHz Marvell XScale processor, 128MB of RAM and 64MB of RAM. It runs Windows Mobile 5. There's no word when it'll go on sale.
