ASUS intros J502 slider

Chris Ziegler

Don't be fooled by its impressive spec sheet -- the J502 has nothing but feeble GPRS to keep its data pipeline moving along. That alone is enough to render ASUS' latest slider dead in our eyes, but we'll go through the motions and hit up the otherwise-lovely features anyway: 3 megapixel autofocus cam, 2.4 inch QVGA display, TV out, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR (including A2DP), and a rather creative SMS remote control feature that allows the owner to control a variety of functions from afar -- lock, format, call forward, and so on. Of course, if the phone's stolen, we imagine one of the first things on the thief's mind is switching out the SIM, so ya better hurry if you want to wipe it. No word on a release date, but expect the 14.7mm slider in your choice of red and black when it drops.
