HP IPAQ 510 Voice Messenger: A Half-Assed Revival for the Brand

HP's IPAQ brand is back from the dead with this slim phone that looks nothing like the whale-ish IPAQ PDAs of yesteryear.

Stop the presses, a non-iPod music player dock is on the loose. Designed for the HP iPAQ rw6818/6828, this dock does most everything you'd expect a dock to do, like charge your player and play back your tunes with a set of stereo speakers.

HP vice president Chi-Teik See said HP won't support 3G in its smartphones until at least next year.

DavesiPaq = MobilityToday

So it looks like the PDA is truly and verily dead. The venerable DavesiPaq, home of all things PDA, is now MobilityToday, which is focusing on old men wearing jackets and other mobile technology.

HP iPaq rx1950 - The Small One

Lots of handheld news today. The iPaq rx1950 looks like a stunted little thing but it's quite powerful and runs Windows Mobile 5.0.
