HP reveals its first mobile handset
HP has announced its first true mobile handset, the iPAQ 514.
The manufacturer has previously designed a range of PDA style devices, but the closest it had come before the launch of the iPAQ 514 to a mobile device was the voice enabled Pocket PC.
The HP iPAQ 514 comes equipped with VoIP and push email technology, and boasts as impressive battery life of up to 7.8 days standby time. It also features ‘Voice Reply’, a programme that enables users to reply to their emails by dictating and sending a voice response.
The handset also has 64MB of internal memory, a MicroSD card slot, and a 1.3 megapixel camera. It will run on Windows Mobile version 6.0, and will be available from the second quarter at a Sim-free price of £235.
In addition, HP has struck a deal with BT Fusion, its converged fixed line, mobile and broadband service for business customers, to add the phone to its portfolio of handsets.
