In a monumental update of its personal computing portfolio, HP today introduced new media relationships and products that feature enduringly elegant design for everyone from consumers to IT professionals. Among the announcements are a new category of gaming PCs, an unprecedented expansion of the HP iPAQ handheld lineup and joint programs with media partners MTV and Condé Nast.
The launch took place at an evening gala on the eve of New York's illustrious Fashion Week, where the company hosted an audience of nearly 1000 industry influencers, partners, customers and other notable personalities.

Extending the HP iPAQ handheld lineup with the largest product launch in the brand's history, HP unveiled 56 iPAQ-related products. Because it takes more than a mobile device to make a business mobile, HP introduced five mobile devices, five mobile software programs, 12 mobile services and almost three dozen handheld accessories.
The new devices offer an array of mobile features tailored for business and personal use and include a pair of 3G mobile phones, a personal navigation device and two personal digital assistants (PDAs). The new services empower IT organizations with mobile device management, software customization, location-based services and HP Total Care.

"This unprecedented expansion of iPAQ product and services demonstrates HP's dedication to the mobile space and to the needs of its business customers," said Dave Rothschild, vice president, Handheld Business Unit, Personal Systems Group, HP. "Businesses need IT companies to deliver fast, flexible and reliable mobility, and HP delivers on these needs with our new products, services and solutions. Business is about outcomes and iPAQ is about business."

The expansion of the iPAQ product line features the following:

HP's newest mobile phones offer mobile E-Mail, voice and access to critical enterprise applications, making it easy for busy professionals to stay on top of their work. Users of the feature-packed HP iPAQ 900 Series Business Messenger and HP iPAQ 600 Series Business Navigator can make calls and access the Internet in places around the world via triband UMTS/HSDPA and quadband GSM/EDGE wireless technology, while integrated WiFi allows for hot spot connectivity and VoIP capabilities.
On-the-go professionals also will appreciate the long battery life and turn-by-turn navigation via Assisted GPS. Both devices feature HP iPAQ Device Connect software, simplifying high-speed connection to the Internet with a notebook PC anywhere highspeed cellular data networks are available. In addition, built-in Voice Commander features, such as HP Voice Reply, enable hands-free e-mailing.
The HP iPAQ 600 and 900 Series both run the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6 Professional operating system and boast a 3-megapixel camera and a bright touch screen. They also feature quick upload to Snapfish, the leading online photo service. Users can upload photos taken with an iPAQ directly to their Snapfish account over-the air.
The HP iPAQ 900 Series Business Messenger and HP iPAQ 600 Series Business Navigator also support HP's mobile device management solution, the HP Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS), for easy setup and over-the-air manageability. EMS 4.0 is now shipping and will shortly be fully integrated with HP Enterprise Discovery Software to provide customers with unified asset management of their iPAQ handhelds, desktops, notebooks and server devices.

Ideally suited for business or personal travel, the HP iPAQ 300 Series Travel Companion's high-resolution, 3D immersive navigation experience comes complete with a premium entertainment system, Bluetooth phone connectivity and web-based trip planning services to help travelers make the most of the journey and the destination.
Featuring a brilliant 800 x 480 pixel, 4.3" widescreen display, the HP iPAQ 300 provides resolution equivalent to full DVD-quality video. HP also has created a completely new exclusive user interface that offers fast and simple navigation. An online trip planning web portal debuting later this fall assists in tailoring travel itineraries, researching destination information and uploading routes and content to the iPAQ.
Customers can also connect to a Bluetooth phone and talk hands free. In addition, customers will enjoy playing MP3 music, videos and photos and pre-installed games.

The powerhouse HP iPAQ 200 Series Enterprise Handheld, with its big VGA 4" touch screen, sets a new standard for enterprise PDAs. The HP iPAQ 200 Series has the processing power to run a variety of enterprise applications or third-party vertical business solutions. With integrated WiFi and Bluetooth, the device offers convenient mobile connectivity and can be used as a VoIP handset.

HP extends the classic PDA tradition with the sleek and affordable HP iPAQ 100 Series Classic Handheld, just 13 mm thin. The ideal companion to a mobile phone, this elegant new PDA is designed to fit comfortably in the hand. Its large display makes content easy to see, as it shares and synchronizes Outlook Calendar, Contacts, Tasks and media.
With WiFi, Bluetooth and the latest Windows Mobile 6 operating system, the HP iPAQ 100 Series provides personal productivity and wireless connectivity - all at a great value.

According to HP, the HP iPAQ 600 Series Business Navigator and HP iPAQ 100 Series Classic Handheld can be expected to become available from September 2007, the HP iPAQ 200 Series Enterprise Handheld is announced for October 2007. Prices wasn't given today.
