Asus P750 Windows Mobile smartphone

If a workhorse wore a suit, it would look like this

High performance access to file storage

Review Function over form is the name of the game with Asus' P750. No clever styling, no flash graphic user interface, just robust design, a reasonable specification and decent value for money.

The P750 is a bit of a chunky monkey. It weighs 130g and measures 113 x 58 x 17.4mm, but it feels very robust and solid, and we reckon it could take quite a kicking before anything fell off or apart.

Asus' P750: clear screen, even in bright sunlight

The specification is solid enough too: a three-megapixel camera, GPS, Wi-Fi, A2DP Bluetooth, 3.6Mb/s HSDPA 3G, tri-band GSM/GPRS/Edge, a front-facing VGA camera for video calls and a Micro SD card slot. On-board storage is a somewhat stingy 65MB.

Though Asus' spec sheet lists the P750's Micro SD slot as being SDHC compatible ours flat refused to read data off two 4GB cards. A 512MB card we tried worked just fine, though. As both 4GB cards worked in other Micro SDHC-capable devices, it must be an issue with the handset.

The P750's 2.6in, 240 x 320, 65,000-colour touchscreen is nothing out of the ordinary, but it is bright and clear enough to prove usable in even direct sunlight - helpful if you're going to use it as a satnav rig with the generously supplied in-car charger and screen mount.
