ASUS adds a slider and flip
smartphone offerings, but they're doing their best to win us over on their, uh, less smart offerings with the J208 slider and M310 clamshell. The M310 offers the discerning consumer a scary, HAL-like camera lens sporting 2 megapixels of autofocus resolution, a QVGA internal display, and MicroSD slot in a music-oriented 90g chassis with external player controls. The more attractive of the pair, the J208 brings a 2.0 megapixel shooter (without the 2001 drama), 64MB of internal flash, a MicroSD slot, and a 220 x 176 display in a 17mm thick package; we would've liked to have seen QVGA, but we're not going to lose sleep over it since we're betting these tri-band GSM units are Asia-only.
