HP iPAQ 914c Business Messenger mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

A bit slow to start up, but once you get going, this smartphone is easy to use, feature-rich and small enough not to ruin the line of your suit

Fast and feature rich

Slow start up and the camera is less than snappy

HP iPAQ Voice Messenger

 

The HP Voice Messenger looks the business, but how well does it perform? Niall finds out.

Resting above the main keypad you'll find the phone's four-way optical controller, which is one of the handset's unique features. Unlike a traditional d-pad this controller doesn't rock back and forth across both axes. Instead, to move around in menus...

HP Voice Messenger Review

 

Very nice looking phone, some features are questionable. But overall there are much better options from other vendors to consider

HP iPAQ Voice Messenger

 

HP's latest addition to the iPAQ range of handhelds is a competent smartphone that is unfortunately let down by a mediocre control system.

Design, HSDPA connectivity, built-in GPS, Wi-Fi, HP Sliding Panel Media home screen, keypad lock button

Mediocre optical controller, keypad a little flat, questionable build quality, surface attracts plenty of fingerprints, 2.5mm headphone jack

HP's iPAQ Voice Messenger smartphone wins points for its looks, but it's not all good news. The optical controller is mediocre and the keypad is flat, making an otherwise competent handset frustrating to use.

HP iPAQ 51X Voice Messenger

 

HP's first iPaq to look like a regular phone is the first with built-in Wi-Fi.

Windows Mobile 6. Built-in VOIP support.

Feels slow. Quiet speakerphone. Low-res screen. No 3G. Buggy.

HP HP IPAQ HW6920 MOBILE MESSENGER

 

Is there such a thing as wireless overkill? Maybe not, but the HP iPaq hw6920 certainly seems to be putting that question to the test. It features compatibilty with not only the GSM/GPRS/EDGE wireless standards but also Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS-a cool...

Includes built-in GPS ; Keyboard is spacious and easy to type on

Lacks a 3G data connection ; Voice quality is below average

The hw6920 includes support for a wide variety of wireless technologies, but unforgivably lacks a 3G data connection.

HP iPAQ Voice Messenger

 

The iPAQ Voice Messenger is at best, mediocre. There's nothing here that HTC, BlackBerry or Apple don't already do better, and unless your company already has a great HP contract, it's hard to recommend.

Fits in your pocket ; Acceptably smooth interface ; Passable sound quality ; Micro USB charging ; Solid construction

Poor navigation ; Gets uncomfortably warm during calls ; Keypad isn't nice to use ; Capacitive buttons result in frequent mistakes ; 2.5mm headphone jack

Conclusion The iPAQ Voice Messenger is at best, mediocre. There's nothing here that HTC, BlackBerry or Apple don't already do better, and unless your company already has a great HP contract, it's hard to recommend.

The New iPAQ Mobile Messenger: hw6915 - A Tough Package To Beat

 

So we've all had that moment of saying "Gee, I wish that my device had that built in". I can safely say that I didn't have that thought at all with the hw6915. The iPAQ hw6515's new brother seems to finally get it right on HP's third jaunt into the...

Integrated Everything ; Excellent HP proprietary software ; Blazing fast graphics performance

Square Screen ; Lack of VGA ; Keyboard text entry speed
