Asus P750 Windows Mobile smartphone
If a workhorse wore a suit, it would look like this
The P750's list of pre-loaded applications include Location Courier and Travelogue, both of which make use of the built-in GPS. The former is a programme that sends your position as latitude and longitude to up to five people as an SMS message either once or repeatedly at a set interval.
The receiver can just click the link and your location shows up on Google Maps. Presumably this is a handy application to have if you ever get kidnapped and bundled into the boot of a black Mercedes by goons who are daft enough to leave you with your mobile. Travelogue, on the other hand, lets you record your meanderings as a .KMZ file, which is the Google Maps era's answer to boring the hell out of your friends with you holiday snaps.
The MicroSD slot is supposed to be HC compatible
The four-timezone Ur Time application is useful - it's just a shame it dumps itself on the main Home screen with a nasty band of colour behind it. The WorldCard Mobile business card capture application is the best of its type we have come across. The MySecret password vault isn't without value either.
The Asus Call Filter also looked a handy bit of software, at least it did in the handbook, our handset didn't actually have it fitted. Media playback is never going to be the forte of a device like this, but at least being WM you can install CorePlayer.
As you might expect the camera is nothing to shout too loudly about, but nevertheless takes a decent enough snap in good light. Video capture though is pretty abysmal at 15f/s, 176 x 144.
