Hexus: Cased in stainless steel and packing the latest technology, the ASUS A696 perfectly marries the two worlds of consumer electronics and extreme luxury.
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.
T3 calls the new GPS an ‘absolute bargain’: “retailing at only £199 (approx. 295 euro) , the Asus A696 is high-end, high-tech and high-quality, but comes with a price sticker that makes it more attractive than Scarlett Johansson in a cat-suit”.
