Whoa. According to this forum poster on this Spanish PocketPC forum, there are apparently several new HP iPaq models in sight; namely, the rx1900 models: rx1950 and rx1955. My Spanish is a little rusty, but according to Mr. Google Translator, these are the specs of the rumored iPaq:

Dimensions and weight: 76 x 48 x 44 (mm), 125 g
Processor: 300 Samsung S3C2442 MHz
Memory: 96 total MB (64 MB ROM and 32 MB SDRAM) 36 MB of permanent storage.
Screen: TFT QVGA 65.536 colors, 240 x 320 pixel, 3.5".
Audio: Integrated microphone, loudspeaker and jack of 3.5 mm stereo.
1 Slot SDIO
1 IrDA Port
Wireless 802.11b
Replacable and reloadable battery of 1100 mAh Lithium-lon
Operating system: Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0


Yeah, you read that last line right. This rumored iPaq is probably one of the first Pocket PCs to be running the new Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system, which was announced back in May of this year. This is pretty big. Some reminders on why: Windows Mobile 5.0 promises to have persistent memory storage, better USB 2.0 support (enabling handhelds to act as USB drives), upgraded network support, and to be just, well, better. So to hear this iPaq may be coming out soon, is music to our ears. No idea on how much or when, but we're holding out hope on this one.
