With ASUS's user-friendly Remote Presenter application, the A626 can also be easily utilized to remotely link and control presentations on a computer via Bluetooth. And since all data is stored in flash memory (128 MB ROM with 64 MB SDRAM), your most important data remains saved even if all battery power in the handheld has drained away. You can expand the A626's memory vie optional Secure Digital (SD) memory cards.
The Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC operating system includes the Microsoft Office Mobile suite, which features Word Mobile, Excel Mobile, and PowerPoint Mobile. Meanwhile, the File Explorer application makes it easy to browse the files. It also supports Windows Media playback right out of the box. With Windows Media Player, you can play streaming and downloaded video and audio content in a variety of formats. You can also keep favorite tunes loaded on a memory card and listen to your music wherever you roam. With its front-mounted speakers, it plays a variety of popular video and audio formats (MP3, WMA).
With the integrated Bluetooth technology, you can connect wirelessly to peripherals such as your cell phone and make cable clutter a thing of the past.

This is my review on the Asus MyPal A626 Pocket PC PDA. It is a pure PDA, not a phone, though does have WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities.
The basic specs are as follows:
-Intel/Marvell XScale PXA270 312Mhz
-Windows Mobile Edition 6 with mobile office
-3.5" 320x240 16k color touch screen
-802.11g and bluetooth
-3.7V 1200mAh L-ion Battery
-3.5mm headphone jack, SDIO slot, speaker, microphone, Ir
Build and first impression
First off, the build quality appears and feels quite good. The front Is a brushed steel or chrome with shiny chrome on the edges. The backside of the PDA is a soft gray plastic. The buttons are solid and have a nice feel, but the 4 task buttons are positioned to high to really make good controls if you plan on using emulators or some games on it. Also, the PDA is designed to be held either portrait or landscape, but assume I am holding it portrait when I am referring to it.
The top of the PDA has the centered power button and and offset SD slot. The right side has the 3.5mm headphone jack, hold slider, and stylus. The left side has the USB port. The bottom side has the Ir and reset button. The microphone is above the screen on the front, and the speaker and indicator lights are below the buttons.
Everything is well placed and convenient. My only complaint here is the bright LED indicator lights being right under the buttons, as they are bright and blink instead of staying on steady. I would have preferred them be on top or something less intrusive to the eye.
Well, coming originally from Pocket PC 2002, I was interested in seeing what was added/changed in Windows Mobile Edition 6.Read more ›
This device says it comes with 64MB RAM, 128MB ROM and Microsoft Windows 5.0, but it actually comes as an upgrade (it says so on the box) and has 128MB, 256MB ROM and Windows Mobile 6.0. It also comes with a mini USB cable for syncing, an AC adapter for recharging, and an extra stylus (very nice, it is resizable) and three CDs that include extra software and Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5.
The installed software includes Office Mobile with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Media Player, Outlook, Internet Explorer, Windows Live, Messenger and many others. The programs all run well and fast.
I tried the Wireless 802.11g connection at my local library. I simply clicked on the small icon on the Today screen and selected Enable WiFi. The device quickly connected to the library's WiFi network and I launched IE and was online. The browser loads pages the same as on a desktop/laptop. The speed was suprisingly good. Faster than dialup--comparable to a slow DSL connection (as opposed to the faster 768k DSL). I would recommend downloading the Opera Mobile browser from Opera's website as it includes multiple tabbed browsing which IE does not.
Only two minor drawbacks to this whole package. First, the case it comes with is ok, but hardly strong enough to protect the screen very well. So be careful with it. I would suggest buying a solid metal case to carry your MyPal around in. Second, ActiveSync 4.Read more ›

It doesn't have a phone, which I think is a good thing since otherwise it would consume the battery right away....
