HP announces h4150 and h4350 both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled
HP announced a range of new products during the ITU Telecom World conference, including new Windows Mobile based Pocket PCs, Bluetooth printers, and more. The new products range from wireless consumer devices to enterprise-class mobile office solutions to powerful technologies embedded deep in the mobile network.

As part of the company's overall mobility initiative, HP is making specific news announcements in the areas of consumer devices, personalized services and content, and network infrastructure. HP's global services capability enables the company to integrate these elements into complete solutions anywhere in the world.

HP introduced a new suite of mobility devices including notebook, tablet and pocket PCs that allow users to stay "connected and protected" no matter where they are. These products are wirelessly enabled for a variety of standards, including 802.11 a/b/g tri-mode and Bluetooth wireless technology. Since wireless communication must also be secure, these products are equipped with high levels of enterprise-grade security.

Products and related announcements include:
  • New HP iPAQ Pocket PCs h4150 (review here) and h4350 (review here) - both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled;
  • A new platform that allows Bluetooth-enabled multimedia messaging from Nokia Series 60 phone to HP printers;

  • The HP iPAQ Navigation System, GPS-equipped to provide an in-vehicle navigation system;
  • The new HP Tablet PC TC1100 with Intel Centrino technology and enabled for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
  • HP and Ericsson are cooperating to drive mass market adoption of Bluetooth- enabled mobile devices.

    The HP iPAQ Pocket PC H4150 and H4350 include common features that allow mobile professionals to do more with their iPAQ while on the road. The iPAQ H4350 also include a new integrated keyboard.

By simply adding SDIO options like memory cards, wireless cards, or even a digital camera such as the HP Photosmart Mobile Camera, users can extend the capability of the iPAQ to fit their needs. The H4150 includes a 1000 mAh removable battery and offers an optional 1800 mAh battery, the H4350 includes a 1560 mAh removable battery and offers an optional 3600 mAh battery.

    The HP Wireless Printing Platform for mobile phones helps provide mobile phone users the ability to print and share information. Nokia is the first mobile phone manufacturer to adhere to the platform, which is currently known as the Mobile Print Application Software for Series 60 Imaging Phones. This software platform enables Nokia 3650, 6600 and 7650 Bluetooth mobile phone users to print photos, multimedia message services (MMS) messages with images, email, short message service (SMS), notepad files, contacts and calendar items to HP printers that support Bluetooth and Basic Print Profile (BPP). The ability to print offers customers greater flexibility and helps maximize the mobile experience for people on the go.
