Design: Asus Aura Mobile Phone

. Nov 13, 2008

New mobile phone design by Egy Studios. There is no question that Apple's release of the iPhone and its recent success has inspired many companies to create similar touchscreen phones in the hopes that they can attract would-be iPhone carriers. I think the fact that iPhones must be used exclusively with AT&T makes many of these other iPhone inspired designs attractive to a variety of people, including myself. The design for the Asus Aura combines the touchscreen component of the iPhone while also adressing customer complaints through their insertion of a keyboard. I must say I don't like the fact that the keyboard is not setup in similar fashion to a computer keyboard. The phone also features a 3.9 touchscreen covering the whole surface of the phone, 2 megapixel camera, microSD memory card slot, GSM, UMTS, HSDPA, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
