HP iPAQ hw6515 Mobile Messenger Reviews

Ipaq_hw6515_mobile_messenger_1There's a lot of buzz around the new HP iPAQ hw6515 Mobile Messenger pda phone which will be going up against the popular BlackBerry and Palm Treo devices, mainly targeting business users. It can play music, synchronise your calendar, take photos and record videos, and includes a GPS satellite-navigation receiver, but... no Wi-fi.  Is it a BlackBerry / Treo Killer? Read the enthusiastic reviews.

PC Mag writes:

The hw6515, which runs Windows Mobile for Pocket PC 2003 Second Edition, looks more like a BlackBerry than what we've come to think of as a typical Pocket PC. This is due, in part, to its unusual 2.2-inch 240-by-240 square screen. (Most Pocket PCs have a rectangular, 240-by-320 screen.) At 4.6 by 2.8 by 0.7 inches and 5.8 ounces, it's thinner and lighter than the palmOne Treo 650, but half an inch wider, and thinner but slightly heavier than the BlackBerry 7290. read more

PC Pro gave the HP iPAQ hw6515 Mobile Messenger 5 out of 6 stars in their review.

Verdict: HP is out to beat BlackBerry at its own game, and succeeds. This PDA/phone slips easily into a pocket yet offers all the features we've come to expect from a powerful Pocket PC. read review

I am still looking for a blogging client, but it shouldn’t be too difficult to find one. With 1.3 megapixel camera built into the device, which makes it a nifty way to take photos for moblogging. I have already installed an IM client and find it easier to respond to IM messages with the keyboard, than with a full review of HP iPAQ hw 6515 Mobile Messenger at Om Malik's Broadband Blog
