BenQ P50 May See Light of Day, But Who Cares At This Point?
Sometime last year when the BenQ P50 was first announced a lot of geeks got all weak in the knees. It’s a pocket PC phone with the same form factor as the Treo (sans antenna) and packs the punch with features: Bluetooth, Wifi, 64MB of RAM, 64MB of ROM, 1.3MP camera, and of course the QWERTY thumboard for all your email needs. The big news today is that the P50 has gotten FCC approval meaning a US carrier might actually bring the thing out. The downside to this is that nobody is really that excited about it anymore. It’s too late to be a Treo 650 contender, only has GPRS (no UMTS or even EDGE), and 320x240 screens are a dime a dozen now. Over at Gear Live we are still a little excited about it, but now there are so many more exciting phones to drool over that the P50 just seems to fade into the too little too late category.
