HP launches Pocket PC Phone Edition with T-Mobile
HP has announced an alliance with T-Mobile USA to offer its innovative iPAQ hardware to T-Mobile's national GSM/GPRS wireless voice and high-speed data network, as well as the T-Mobile HotSpot Wi-Fi Internet service.

Available exclusively from T-Mobile in the USA, but later from other operators in Europe and Asia-Pacific, the HP iPAQ Pocket PC h6315 is the first handheld to provide integrated wireless voice and data capabilities over GSM/GPRS, Wi-Fi (wireless fidelity) and Bluetooth.

The h6315 includes an innovative feature that automatically connects to the fastest available network and automatically switches to an alternate network if the initial connection is lost.

"Mobile professionals are demanding anytime, anywhere access to help them communicate in new and better ways," said Scott Ballantyne, vice president of business services marketing, T-Mobile USA, Inc. "The HP and T-Mobile relationship allows these customers greater connection access to what is important in their lives. Easier access to e-mail, integrated wireless connectivity, keyboard and even a camera, it's everything you could want in a device."

The HP iPAQ Pocket PC h6315 is expected to be available for purchase later this summer through HP online as well as through T-Mobile stores, authorized dealers and national retail stores. T-Mobile will be the initial and primary point of contact for activation, billing and support regardless of where the product is purchased in the USA.
