Okay, after we heard first about HP's new iPAQ line of smartphones and have seen some blurry renderings, it's time to get the full flavor of HP's new flagship
smartphones, powered by Windows Mobile 6 Professional.
The iPAQ 614, the first device of HP's new iPAQ 600 series, features quadband
GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as triband HSDPA up to 3.6 Mbps as well as WiFi b/g,
Bluetooth 2.0 (+EDR isn't confirmed yet) and AGPS. It works with a dual-chip
solution, sporting a Marvell PXA270 CPU at 520 MHz and a Qualcomm MSM6280 radio
chip and has 128 MB RAM and 256 MB ROM which can be extended with microSD memory
The 2.8" QVGA screen supports up to 65K colors and the main camera on the back
supports 3 megapixel. There is no front facing camera for UMTS video telephony.
Last but not least, the device features a, what HP calls, Smart-touch
navigational wheel integrated into the 12 keys numeric keypad and a 3-way side
switch. All this weights 145 g and measures 115 x 60 x 16.7 mm:
The HP iPAQ 614 can be expected for October and it's estimated retail price
is rumored at US$ 800.
