HP Releases iPAQ hw6900 Smartphone

HP introduced its iPAQ hw6900 Mobile Messenger, running Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 and claiming to be the first smartphone with four radios: quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth. Also included is a 1.3 megapixel camera. A key feature of this unit is its ability to play along with Microsoft's Messaging and Security Feature Pack included with Windows Mobile 5.0, which pushes e-mail, calendar, tasks and contacts. For that GPS receiver inside, North Americans will get Microsoft Pocket Streets 2006, while Europeans receive Tom-Tom Navigator 5 and one free city map. HP says the hw6900 will be available in North America this summer, and everywhere else this spring. HP says pricing will vary by region.
