Windows Phone 7 running Asus E600 passes FCC tests
It's been a while since we first met the Asus E600 since but seeing it passing the FCC tests clearly shows that the first Asus-made smartphone based on the Windows Phone 7 platform is getting closer to its launch.
Actually, the Asus E600 (previously known as Garmin-Asus E600) was said to hit the stores on time for Christmas so its premiere might take place even sooner than expected. When we first met it (see the video above), we only got to take a look at its user interface but now, thanks to the numerous images found over at the FCC website (there is even an E600 manual), we also see how the E600 will look like.
The Asus E600 sure is handsome, with a nice, sleek design, and keeping in mind what the WP7 hardware requirements are, we can expect it to be just as smart, too. However, none of the E600 features has been revealed (save for the 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash exposed on one of the images below).
According to some of the documents on the FCC website, the Asus E600 supports 850/1900MHz HSPA. So, don't be surprised if you see it selling at the stores of AT&T USA or somewhere in Canada. By the way, there is no word on the device price yet.
nice phone..i will buy it..although many limititations now, it will get updated and evolved as cannot expect much from a 2 months old OS. Just a matter of time.

Oh yes, another WP7 identical with the other 100. Exactly what we needed.
