Cingular Wireless and HP are introducing the HP iPAQ h6320 and HP iPAQ h6325 models connected to Cingular's network in the United States.
The HP iPAQ Pocket PC h6320/6325, run on Windows Mobile software, incorporates GSM quad-band capabilities allowing users to utilise the phone anywhere with GSM coverage (and roaming agreements in place).
The HP iPAQ h6320/6325 models have three wireless features, including access to GSM/GPRS for cellular data and voice,
Wi-Fi for wireless LAN access, and Bluetooth for connection with personal devices. The Pocket PC will automatically connect to the fastest available network and automatically switches to an alternate network if the initial connection is lost.
The HP iPAQ h6320/6325 is part of the HP iPAQ Pocket PC h6300 series (read our review). The handhelds are based on a TI OMAP 1510 processor, with Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition software which gives users access to pocket versions of Outlook, Word, Excel and Internet Explorer. It also supports the Microsoft Windows .NET Compact Framework so that IT investments already made in .NET applications can be easily leveraged and extended to mobile users.
Both models come with a removable thumb keyboard, and a 3.5 inch color screen. The HP iPAQ h6325 includes a built-in VGA camera with 640 x 480 pixel resolution and 8-bit color.
The new models have 64 MB SDRAM (55-MB user accessible), 64 MB ROM memory with up to 20 MB iPAQ File Store featuring non-volatile memory used to store critical data, databases and other important files. An integrated Secure Digital (SD) slot supports SD and Multimedia Card memory cards.
The HP iPAQ h6320/6325 can send and receive e-mails through POP3/IMAP servers, or be used with Microsoft Exchange 2003 Server. In this case e-mail, attachments, calendar updates and more can be automatically sent and synchronised with the device over a Wi-Fi or GPRS network.
