Though it's taken a little heat for me-too styling, the M530W "Aries" from ASUS is still a strong contender in its market segment thanks largely to two key features: Windows Mobile 6 Standard and HSDPA. Ahead of a scheduled July debut, PDAFrance spent some quality time with the device, giving it a thorough rundown in both still and moving pictures. How thorough? The video clocks in at nearly nine minutes; yeah, it's in French, but eye candy is eye candy. If nothing else, it's helpful to see the M530W presented alongside its inspiration HTC's Excalibur for the cross-shoppers out there.
