Asus' Lamborghini ZX1 available on pre-order

Written by test

Available August 8th

Asus' relationship with Lamborghini has brought forward the ZX1 Windows Mobile 6.1 smart phone. The handset has a lot of flash features and some cutting edge hardware, but we can't say we're overly keen on the design.

Feature-wise, you're looking at 450MHz TI OMAP 2431 processor combined with Ericsson's EMP U360 HSDPA platform, although Asus only supports speeds of up to 3.6Mbps, the ZX1 will work on all UMTS 3G networks around the world and it also has quad-band GSM with EDGE support.

There's no less than 256MB of ROM and 128MB of RAM in the ZX1 and it also has support for 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR, a built-in SiRF Star III GPS receiver, a 3Megapixel camera with auto focus and a forward-facing camera for video calls, a microSD card memory slot and USB 2.0 support.

The screen measures 2.8-inches and has a fairly poor resolution of 320x240, which is normally reserved for cheaper devices these days. The 1100mAh battery also seems quite weak compared to many other devices featuring 1300mAh or more, although Asus claims 4-5h talk time and 200h standby, which sounds a little bit on the high side for a Windows Mobile device with these kinds of specifications.

The ZX1 measures 115.6x59.4x13.2mm (HxWxD) and weighs in at 119g. Asus has made a custom Lamborghini UI for the device and we can't say that we really like it, as we had a quick play with the device at Computex earlier this month.

It might pack a lot of features, but Asus will offer the P560 with almost identical features minus the branding and UI, and we'd expect the P560 to cost a whole lot less than the whopping £794.95 (€989.95/$1,344.95) pre-order price from Expansys, who says they'll have the ZX1 available in Europe on the 8th of August.
