We have recieved a tip pointing us to this picture of an Asus device suspected of being the P565. The rather unasuming facade hides a real monster inside – the first smartphone with an 800 Mhz processor!
The rest of the specs do not leave much to be desired either (unless you are in USA of course). The smartphone has a VGA screen, European HSDPA, a 3 Megapixel auto-focuus camera (plus VGA video conferencing camera) and of course the prerequisite GPS of the SIRF Star III variety.
The rest of the specs are as below. Asus will also be adding their own additional Asus Glide software suite to customize Windows Mobile.
