There is news going around that Hewlett-Packard has been scouting for smartphone manufacturers. If you remember their announcement that they were dropping their plans to produce the Pocket PC Phone Edition version of the iPAQ 5xxx range, it makes you wonder if HP would even sell a Smartphone.

But apparently, HP has shelved their Pocket PC Phone Edition plans for the MS Smartphone platform. It has been reported that HP has been inquiring about smartphone prices from several Taiwanese contract manufacturers. Those approached by HP are High Tech Computer Corp (HTC). Compal Electronics, Mitac International, Asustek Computer, Inventec Appliances and Quanta Computer.

No - i talked to several PMs of HP at CeBIT this year and the official news was that there is definitly no Phone Edition Device in the 56xx series. The 56xx with GSM Phone was planned by Compaq, but this plan has been canceld after the merger with HP. There will be a HP Phone Edition Device, but this will have nothing to do with the iPaq as we know.

Well there ain't any official news from HP so we have to consider that the 56xx series still have the chance to be produced. Just like they say 1.5 years ago about Jornada 928 (that it won't be produced) and look what we got now
