ASUSTek V80 slim like a sliver


Everybody and their mother has a skinny phone these days, from the 50 millionth RAZR to the ubiquitous Motorola SLVR. The people over at ASUSTek are doing the slim candybar dance as well with their all-new V80. At 16mm, it can’t exactly take the supermodel skinniest title, but it’s got plenty of features to explain the extra girth.

The integrated 2 megapixel camera comes with auto focus, flash, and the ability to take close-ups as cozy at 10 centimetres. The picture taker doubles as a camcorder as well, recording MPEG4 movies with the best of them. The quad-band ASUSTek V80 features a 2-inch TFT LCD, MP3 playback, FM radio, and song lyric display. There are 55 megabytes of built-in memory to accompany the miniSD expansion slot.

Rounding out the features are Bluetooth 1.2 (including A2DP for your stereo music needs), MP3 and polyphonic ringtones, up to 5 hours of talk time, two built-in JAVA games, USB 1.2, and WAP. No word on pricing, but we do know that they are producing black, white, and “reddish gold” flavours.
