Asus Wins Design Award with its ASUS-Lamborghini ZX1 PDA
      #30486 - 06/20/08 04:04 PM

The ASUS-Lamborghini ZX1 PDA phone has won the prestigious iF Communication Design Awards 2008. Here is more info about the device:

Designed by Racers, for Racers
As it is with the car, all heads will turn to envy the owner of such a well-crafted PDA phone ? passionately designed and uncompromising in materials as well as features to give the masculine owner access to powerful mobile performance. For most luxury mobile users, it's enough to live in luxury. But for the ASUS-Lamborghini ZX1 owner, his mobile life must also be driven by passion ? faster, better and stronger than any other.

Fearsome Familiarity
Just about everything on the Lamborghini that makes it look so fiercely gorgeous has been adapted to the ASUS-Lamborghini ZX1. Design-conscious individuals see it right away in the chassis-inspired aerodynamic flow and amazingly sharp profile, perfectly sport-kitted with highly-defined and distinctive edges. The "beehive" textured air intake covers beside the front grille of the race car sits stylishly on the top of the ASUS-Lamborghini ZX1. The hood is immaculately reflected as a shiny surface, complete with the famous Lamborghini crest. Inside, the car's versatile steering inspired the highly-maneuverable 9-way navigational key. Such a level of sophistication, yet unreservedly fearsome, can only come in the form of the ASUS-Lamborghini ZX1 in its contrastingly raw and refined image.

High Grade Materials for the High Life
In synchronized motion to a fast-paced lifestyle, the ASUS-Lamborghini ZX1 remains undeterred with a toughness that is second to none. Charged with the task of making it hardy, ASUS ID engineers use only the highest quality materials. That's why the back panel is covered with extremely lightweight but amazingly strong carbon fiber that is twice as tough as Aluminum and five times stronger than steel. With it, a high grade stainless steel casement is used to protect the camera compartment and give the phone a distinctive European standard of manufacturing, much like high-end Swiss watches.

Performance Made to Outperform
Good looks aren't enough as performance is equally important. Built to beat anything it challenges, the ZX1 has a list of features that will make a grown businessman feel like a boy in his first race car. This 3.5G living, breathing mobile machine is equipped with wireless 802.11b+g, Bluetooth v2.0+EDR, USB2.0 compatible and even GPS; to name a few. It is also the first luxury PDA phone that runs on Windows Mobile.

Racing Interface for the Racer
With a 2.8" touch screen, a 9-way navigational key and a unique racing user interface that can be modified to the user's mode of operation whether it be business or lifestyle ? complete with engine noises, the spirit of the Lamborghini truly resides in the ASUS-Lamborghini ZX1.
