To answer the needs of discerning consumers who require a highly versatile and functional PDA, ASUS has launched the A696 ultra-slim GPS PDA. This palm-sized wonder is of a high standard of design and quality and cater to the user's expectations for personal accessories.
Standing distinct from most of the PDAs on the market, the ASUS A696 is not only ultra-slim at only 1.57cm, it incorporates full GPS functionality without the protruding antenna, and is encased in stainless steel instead of plastic. Together with the anti-glare touch screen, the A696 exudes a solid and high quality feel expected of luxury accessories.
Global Positioning System (GPS) puts an end to fumbling with maps and compass by harnessing satellite technology to pinpoint one's precise location, and other trip information. No mere gimmick, A696 has a great variety of everyday applications like trip planning and navigating venues, taking users anywhere, for both fun and work.
On the A696, GPS technology comes in an extremely slim PDA with embedded antenna discreetly hidden from view, and the information is displayed on an anti-glare 3.5-inch color screen providing a better view while driving. In addition, the A696's GPS module uses the latest energy-efficient SiRF Star III chipset, enabling accurate navigation over extended periods.
