Asus MyPal A696 GPS receiver review

Pocket Lint

  • Conclusion: If you just want in-car satnav then buy a dedicated unit, if you want convergence and miniaturisation buy a GPS satnav enabled smartphone. Which leaves us wondering who will buy the MyPal A696...
  • Pros: Slim device, great anti-glare screen, build quality
  • Cons: Cursed by being just average at everything

  • Summary: The MyPal A696's GPS is handy, but the navigational experience isn't as satisfying or complete as the multitude of dedicated portable units on the market. What remains is a solid, yet unremarkable PDA.
  • Pros: GPS chipset, included navigational software, brushed metal finish, 3.5mm headphone jack, excellent battery life
  • Cons: GPS experience doesn't compare to dedicated portable units, Windows Mobile 5 rather than 6 on earlier units, bland design, heavy

  • Summary: Все три устройства новой серии должны в ближайшее время появиться в розничной продаже. В связи с этим интересно рассмотреть ценовые категории аппаратов и подумать, какие перспективы ожидают новую линейку. Ориентировочная стоимость Asus A696 составит на момент начала продаж 539 долларов США, на Asus A686 – 439 долларов США и для Asus 626 – 400 долларов США. Рекомендованные цены незначительно ниже. Посмотрим на старший аппарат и его конкурентов.
