HP web site reveals details of upcoming Mobile Messenger Pocket PC
HP has not officially released the hw6515 Mobile Messenger Pocket PC Phone Edition announced during the 3GSM 2005, but the company's web site is already showing details of the product.

The iPAQ Mobile Messenger hw6515 integrates Bluetooth, EDGE and GPS features as expected. The device is based on Windows Mobile Second Edition Pocket PC OS, and brings a different form factor to the Pocket PC world. The most striking feature is the square LCD screen (3.0" transflective TFT, 64K colours, LED backlight), a departure from the standard rectangular QVGA and VGA screens currently available on Pocket PC devices. Support for new screen sizes and formats was introduced with Windows Mobile Second Edition but never fully utilised.

Also new is the built-in keyboard, with keys that look like the ones used on the h6315. But this time the keiyboard is part of the design, instead of being a detachable accessory. The device measures 71 x 21 x 118 mm and weighs 165g, even with built-in keyboard.

An Intel PXA270 CPU running at 312 MHz powers the device, but users will have to invest in some external memory cards: the device comes with only 64 MB SDRAM of which only up to 56 MB user available memory, and 64 MB ROM including 12 MB iPAQ File Store, a permanent storage area in available to user data and programs but not mapped as main memory.

Since expansion is required, SD and Mini SD Slots are provided, with support to 1-bit SDIO and 4-bit SD/MMC type memory standards.

In terms of applications the iPAQ Mobile Messenger will bring the standard Windows Mobile programs (Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, Voice Recorder, Notes, Pocket Word Pocket Excel, Pocket Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player 10, Inbox, Microsoft Reader, File Explorer, VPN Client) and like previous HP products a good bundle of software (iPAQ Wireless, GSM/GPRS Settings Manager, GPS Navigation from TomTom products, HP Profiles, MMS Composer, Bluetooth Manager, iPAQ File Store, iPAQ Backup, HP Photosmart Camera, HP Image Zone for Pocket PC).

Wireless connectivity is achieved through integrated quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Bluetooth, IrDA. The hw6315 also comes with integrated GPS receiver and a Quick GPS Connection Utility.

There is no indication on the web site of official release dates yet.

Update:: It seems the link to the HP web site went dead a couple of hours after we posted this.
