HP unveils smartphone for mobile professionals
HP has introduced the latest HP iPAQ device, a small smartphone that promises to deliver a flexible wireless email experience for business customers through convenient voice control and hands-free operation.

The HP iPAQ 500 series Voice Messenger features voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) capabilities, push e-mail and the latest Windows Mobile 6 operating system. The new handset offers up to six hours of continuous talk time.

More than 20 voice commands are available on the iPAQ for hands-free operation. Using a “voice reply” feature, people can reply to email by dictating and sending a voice response, without the need for any typing. Users also can listen to email and text messages, navigate through phone and calendar tasks and speak to start applications.

Additionally, the HP iPAQ Voice Messenger has built-in Wi-Fi to provide business customers a VoIP alternative to traditional office phone setups. The smartphone also includes GSM/EDGE and Bluetooth wireless technology connectivity options.

Based on the new Windows Mobile 6 Standard platform, the HP iPAQ 500 series provides business professionals with an enhanced Outlook Mobile experience, allowing customers to view emails in their original HTML format and enjoy quick access to contacts with the ability to search call history and contacts database.

The HP iPAQ Voice Messenger is the first iPAQ device to offer the over-the-air device management capabilities that HP acquired with its purchase of Bitfone Corp. With these capabilities, businesses can remotely manage and support the HP iPAQ devices’ performance, security and access to applications, data and networks. For example, IT managers can remotely erase data on lost or misplaced devices, configure and repair units, and provide updates and security applications.

The HP iPAQ 500 series Voice Messenger is expected to be available this spring in the United States direct from HP and select authorized dealers. International pricing and availability for the HP iPAQ 500 series will vary.
