HP iPAQ 900 to be Released June 30
For mobile phones, there are very few weeks as groundbreaking as this one. There have been an incredible number of announcements and launch dates that makes the gadget lover drool all over themselves (and it’s only Tuesday!). The next one on the list is the latest in the iPAQ lineup, the Hewlett-Packard iPAQ 900 Series Business Messenger.
This particular PDA will be shipped as early as June 30, the HP press release claims. Just as many of the PDAs being released lately, this gem offers quad-band GSM/EDGE world support as well as tri-band 7.2 Mbps UMTS/HSDPA.
It will sport Windows Mobile 6.1 with touchscreen display, WiFi b/g and Bluetooth connectivity, GPS navigation, and come equipped with a 3 MP camera. It also takes advantage of Microsoft Internet Sharing software which enables faster tethering to the internet on your laptop. The press release also mentions the use of a 5-way navigation scroll wheel.
The top picture shows the official HP press photo when it was originally announced last fall. The bottom picture shows the iPAQ900 as it was approved by the FCC. Are they supposed to be the same model, and the look simply evolved since last fall? Discuss.
The pricing will differ for each country and region, so stay tuned for more information on that when available.
