Posted on 11-May-2005 08:27 | Tags Filed under: News



HP today announced an upgrade program to Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 for customers with select HP iPAQ handhelds as well as plans to support the new version of the software platform in its future mobile offerings.

HP iPAQ handhelds with Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 (read coverage) will provide customers with enhanced mobile communication, entertainment and productivity through simpler navigation and access to data, an improved Mobile Office suite, along with a more powerful, integrated multimedia experience.

"Since the introduction of the Windows Mobile platform more than five years ago, HP and Microsoft have worked together to offer customers innovative mobile tools to further improve their mobile experience," said Eric Kilponen, director of product marketing, handheld division, HP. "With Windows Mobile 5.0 for HP's award-winning iPAQ line, customers will benefit from 'persistent memory storage' that ensures that devices will retain all their business data, even when the battery is depleted. Further, customers can increase productivity through faster access to information and updates to familiar business applications, such as Outlook and Office."

HP will offer Windows Mobile 5.0 upgrades for the HP iPAQ hx2100, hx2400, hx2700 and hx4700 series of handhelds. These software upgrades are expected to be available this summer and can be purchased directly from HP.
