Asus presented its new J501 phone which features a 2.2" display and a 2 megapixel digital camera. With a thin, slide-phone design, the J501 not only looks good, it delivers detailed pictures as well. The 2.2" QVGA high-resolution super-sized mirror surface display of the J501 comes with a 260,000 color TFT-LCD which supports up to 240x320 resolutions. The image quality of this big screen is both sharp and detailed – enabling users to exceed current mobile phone limits in visual acuity.

The J501 also features a highly-sensitive two-step auto focus camera shutter which can give 10cm close-ups, video recording and horizontal photos – providing the most beautiful frame anytime. It can even connect to a PC via USB as a web camera – transforming it from a mobile phone to a handy digital camera. The unique QR code reader function even provides instant file information as the user captures data – making it easier for organizing pictures.

The MP3 equalizers and different MP3 player skins allow each song broadcast to have individual characteristics. The J501 supports AAC, AAC+ and MPEG4 file formats to provide high quality video and music. Additionally, the built-in FM radio supports fixed time recording and broadcast functions. Furthermore, the J501 has more than 10 built-in fun games for users to play.

By using wireless Bluetooth technology to connect with a computer, users can view contacts and make Skype calls via the J501 directly. This saves money and allows the user to converse with Skype contacts without sitting in front of the computer. The J501 supports Skype friends list, Skype-in and out, instant messaging; and GSM and Skype system switch.
