Does anyone really, really care HP’s Ipaq smartphone/PDAs? Because the last time I checked no one did. Here’s the HP Ipaq 114 with a 3.5-inch screen, a whopping 64MB of RAM and Bluetooth. That’s the most fantastic thing ever! This here doodad will ship next month for about $430. If you’re inclined to know more then keep on truckin’.
The handheld ‘puter 214 isn’t pictured, but I have specs for you. It will entice you with a 4-inch VGA screen, 120×76.6x16mm body, Wi-Fi and not much else. This is also shipping next month for an estimated $500.
The 314 is your standard run-of-the-mill nav system with a 4.3-inch screen, PMP capability, MS Outlook syncing, Bluetooth, which enables your phone contact list to appear. Splendid. No price or launch, yet.
Here’s where it gets a little more exciting, barely. The 614 runs WinMo (gah!), boasts a touch screen UI, GPS, Wi-Fi, GooMaps and wicked fast HSDPA support. That’s all well and good, but $800 is quite steep.
If you’re considering a new smartphone and you absolutely have to have an HP then this is what you want. The 914 packs a punch with a 2.46-inch touch screen, 3-megapixel camera, GPS, Wi-Fi, QWERTY, GooMaps and HSDPA. Oh wait, that’s just like the 614 except the keyboard. WTF?!
