ASUS has just launched the P835, rather impressive touchscreen device running Windows Mobile 6.1. The screen clocks in at 3.5″ and 800 x 480 pixels, and comes along with a 5 megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, GPS, quad-band EDGE and tri-band UMTS. Opera Mobile comes included, with navigation made possible by a trackball, and above all, it can be used as a Wi-Fi access point for up to 10 devices. Who needs a MiFi hub? The P835 is also featuring a new version of the Glide interface that revamps the old look. This would be the very same Omnia-fighter we spotted in September, and is certainly slick enough to butt heads with the big boys.
