With the TyTN II, the BlackJack 2, the Akihabara News, the Mio looks to be a PDA with a GPS receiver inside–no phone functions. It will sport a 400 MHz processor, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and SDHC support.

Pocket PC Thoughts is reporting that the Asus P527 will run on Windows Mobile 6 Professional with quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and data topping out on EDGE speeds. The device will have a 2 megapixel camera, SIRFStar III chipset, WiFi, FM Radio, Bluetooth, micro SD slot and numeric keypad.

The options are here. For QWERTY sliders, the TyTN II will be a great device. For QWERTY candybar phones, there are the Samsung BlackJack 2 and the HP iPAQ 910 series. For candybar with a numeric dialpad, the Asus P527 will be a worthy contender, although topping out on EDGE while all the previously mentioned phones support 3G bands. And then for the non-phone, stand alone PDA users, the Mio will fill the niche.
