HP iPAQ 210


HP's latest PDA is a shining example of a dying product breed, but it still makes plenty of sense for enterprise use.

Fast, next-generation CPU. Bright, high-resolution screen. Solid battery life.

Expensive. Graphics performance falls short. Touch screen was sometimes unresponsive.

Review: HP iPAQ 510 Voice Messenger


Aptly named the Voice Messenger, this GSM/EDGE smartphone reads text messages and e-mail aloud in a voice reminiscent of the Jetsons' robot maid, Rosie. While...

Echoey call quality. No 3G support. Cramped keypad and slippery, rounded keys. Some voice commands (especially ones involving messaging or data entry) require additional button presses to work. OS is a little sluggish

HP iPaq 510 Voice Messenger review: HP iPaq 510 Voice Messenger


The HP iPaq 510 Voice Messenger features advanced voice-command functions and the new Windows Mobile 6 operating system with enhanced e-mail functions and Office Mobile tools. The smart phone also has a compact design, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, a...

Unfortunately, the iPaq 510's speakerphone quality was subpar, and there is no support for 3G. The phone's keypad and navigation controls also are cramped, and it has a lower resolution screen.

Despite some niggling design flaws and the lack of 3G support, the HP iPaq 510 Voice Messenger offers outstanding voice-command features as well as the enhanced productivity tools of Windows Mobile 6.

HP iPAQ 51X Voice Messenger


I bet you've never seen an iPAQ like this. The HP iPAQ Voice Messenger 51X is HP's first phone-first smartphone, the first retail US phone to combine cellular and Wi-Fi calling built in, and the first retail device I've seen running Windows Mobile 6...

Windows Mobile 6. Built-in VOIP support.

Feels slow. Quiet speakerphone. Low-res screen. No 3G. Buggy.

HP's first phone-shaped device, first true dual-mode smartphone in the US, and first official Windows Mobile 6 phone is a good fit for many businesses, but individual consumers should wait for something that feels faster and less buggy.

Ipaq HX2755 PDA


HP's IPaq Hx2755 packs plenty of processing power and RAM, and its simple design is mostly easy to use. The unit's most notable shortcoming, though, is also its most distinctive feature: a biometric fingerprint reader.

However, you may want to think twice about showing off your vacation photos on this device. JPEG photos looked only average on the Hx2755's screen; although color was pleasing, details didn't look terribly crisp, and a light grid made every image look...

HP's iPAQ hx7360 Pocket PC Phone


No pics (at least not yet), but some unconfirmed details have popped up about what is supposedly going to be HP's next Pocket PC Phone (at least after the hw6500 and 6700 finally get here), the iPAQ hx7360. Sounds fully-loaded, it's listed as...

Ipaq RZ1715


HP's IPaq Rz1715 Mobile Media Companion wants to be the fun-loving friend you take with you everywhere. Its welcome screen puts its Music shortcut at the top and its Photos link on the left, leaving the less glamorous Contacts and Schedules to the...

In my informal tests, the Rz1715 synced perfectly with my XP-based desktop system, and the battery took about 3.5 hours to drain 90 percent of its capacity

HP iPAQ h4350 Pocket PC review: HP iPAQ h4350 Pocket PC


Includes Wi-Fi and Bluetooth; built-in keyboard; cradle can charge second battery; high-capacity, removable cell.

Expensive; larger than an average handheld; corporate e-mail should be easier to set up.

It's longer than your average Pocket PC, but its integrated keyboard and higher-capacity battery make the H4350 a top choice for heavy Wi-Fi users.

HP iPAQ h5000 Pocket PC review: HP iPAQ h5000 Pocket PC


Integrated Bluetooth; USB charging; some storage space in nonvolatile flash memory; strong software bundle.

Somewhat big and heavy.

Though it lacks the Wi-Fi of the high-end H5550, the step-down H5150 offers Bluetooth capability and compatibility with a broad range of iPaq add-ons.
