AT&T and HP today announced the upcoming availability of the new HP iPAQ Glisten, a feature-rich 3G Windows Mobile 6.5 world phone that meets the increasing demands of modern mobile professionals. AT&T's first smartphone with an AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) screen, the HP iPAQ Glisten is loaded with features tailored with the business power user in mind. Featuring the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system, the iPAQ Glisten offers a touch-friendly user interface and improved browser with Flash support. Connections to your favorite people, content and applications are a fingertip away on the redesigned Start Menu, and Internet Explorer Mobile supports the rich experiences that many Web pages offer for desktop computers.

The HP iPAQ Glisten comes in two wireless setups: Dualband GSM/GPRS/EDGE at 850/1900 MHz and dualband UMTS/HSDPA at 850/1900 MHz for North America and quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE at 850/900/1800/1900 MHz and triband UMTS/HSDPA at 850/1900/2100 MHz for Europe.

Users can easily move between work and leisure with advanced mobile E-Mail capabilities, built-in WiFi and GPS functionality as well as rich multimedia features and applications. AT&T supports Windows Marketplace for Mobile for access to a variety of applications.

The iPAQ Glisten features a full QWERTY keyboard and five-way directional pad for fast, easy and accurate messaging including SMS/MMS and E-Mail. The touch-enabled AMOLED screen, among the best displays on the market, allows users to easily navigate through menus, windows, and links with the touch of a finger.

Power users stay more connected with Outlook calendaring, Microsoft Word and Excel as well as the ability to view Microsoft PowerPoint and Adobe PDF documents. The HP iPAQ Glisten gives users the ability to manage a single contact list and synchronize them wirelessly or with a PC using a supported E-Mail account. It also comes with an integrated inbox that summarizes recent E-Mails, calls, and texts.

In addition, users can take advantage of the built-in speakerphone and enjoy the freedom of hands-free control with Voice Commander, voice recognition software which reads text messages, E-Mails and appointment details and lets users begin messages and dial contacts using simple voice prompts.

Web browsing and streaming video on the HP iPAQ Glisten are fast and enjoyable with the improved Internet Explorer Mobile 6. Users can turn on the built-in WiFi quickly with a dedicated on/off button and enjoy high-speed Internet access - featuring automatic access to over 20,000 AT&T WiFi hotspots included at no additional charge with select smartphone data plans.

Users can also connect with friends and colleagues on their favorite social networking sites, including a preloaded Facebook application. Mobile professionals can capture pictures and videos with the 3.1 megapixel camera and view them in brilliant color and clarity or edit them with HP Photosmart Mobile and easily share them via E-Mail or on the Web using Snapfish.

The HP iPAQ Glisten will be available in the coming weeks for US$ 229.99 (receive a US$ 50 AT&T Promotion Card with two-year agreement, smartphone data plan). The smartphone will be available through AT&T business services, HP corporate sales, small and medium business and consumer Websites at AT&T.com and HP.com as well as through third-party e-commerce sites.

Cheers ~ Arne
