HP Announces Two New Smartphones

September 5, 2007 in Other Mobile Phones

Hewlett-Packard is the 100-pound gorilla when it comes to personal computers, servers, and even PDAs. But now it’s aiming to capture a slice of the lucrative smartphone market.

It’s not too much of a surprise, considering that PDAs as of late have started shifting in that direction – think RIM’s newer Blackberry models and the Palm Treo line (NOT Foleo).

The iPAQ 900 Series, one of two new smartphones from “newcomer” HP.

HP iPAQ 600 Series Business Navigator

The iPAQ 600 Series Business Navigator is the first hard-hitting contender, with some impressive features: quad-band GSM, EDGE/HSDPA, wi-fi, Bluetooth 2.0, integrated GPS with Google Maps support, and a 3 megapixel camera for starters.

Business Navigator Number 2, or the iPAQ 900 to be more precise, is the big brother to the iPAQ 600.

Other than some small differences in styling, the iPAQ 900 is as feature-packed as the 600 series model. That means GPS, wi-fi, 3 megapixel camera, etc.

Both iPAQs run the Windows Mobile 6 operating system.

So far availability and pricing for these two devices is unknown. Stay tuned.
