Summary: The HP iPaq 910c offers mobile professionals a well-stocked, messaging-centric smartphone, but it faces stiff competition from the likes of HTC, Samsung, and Motorola.
Pros: The HP iPaq 910c Business Messenger features Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, and 3G support. The Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone also offers strong messaging capabilities with a full QWERTY keyboard, and a 3-megapixel camera.
Cons: The iPaq 910c is bulky and the screen size is a bit small. The smartphone is expensive and can be sluggish at times. The phone's speaker is also on the soft side.
Conclusion: The business-class HP iPAQ 910 offers a powerful array of features, well-thought-out hardware controls, and an excellent QWERTY keyboard. It's a near-perfect mobile office for corporate environments running Microsoft apps.
Pros: Good voice quality and reception. Includes Wi-Fi, GPS, and HSDPA radios. Useful selection of hardware controls. Superb QWERTY keyboard with built-in document editing.
Cons: A bit hefty. Mediocre camera despite its 3-megapixel sensor. Weak speakerphone.
Excerpt: As a business user, my needs for a Windows Mobile device tend to be very demanding. I am usually after the perfect combination of small and light, with a lot of the word “powerful”, and still ergonomic enough to make my mobile experience practical. HP has just released their new iPAQ 900 series Business Messenger in an attempt to offer a solution that could just pull it off in addressing all the needs and desires of the business user.
Conclusion: The HP iPAQ 910c Business Messenger is, as its name implies, a very good business phone. Like the BlackBerry Curve , it proves that business phones can be attractive and we do like the looks and compact size. It's a dream phone for those who love the T-Mobile Dash , Moto Q9 and BlackJack II but want Windows Mobile Pro rather than standard edition. The QWERTY-bar design is ever-popular in the US and we do love it for easier one-handed operation and expedience.
Pros: Very compact for a Windows Mobile Pro phone. Great keyboard and nice looks. Relatively reasonable price for an unlocked WinMo Pro phone with all the trimmings. GPS works well, WiFi has good range and Bluetooth 2.0 +EDR offers fast transfer speeds and Bluetooth stereo. The iPAQ 910c is fast for a Windows Mobile Pro device and one-handed operation is a breeze for common tasks. Fast data speeds on HSDPA networks. Solid build quality. Unlocked for use with any GSM carrier.
Cons: Screen is small (a necessary evil when making a device this compact). Screen is the old-fashioned recessed type, making it hard to operate scroll bars with a finger rather than stylus. Speakerphone and ringer could be louder.
Summary: The Windows Mobile 6.1-based HP iPaq 910c Business Messenger offers an iPhone/BlackBerry alternative aimed at corporate users who are willing to pay top dollar for a high-end smartphone with advanced features.
Conclusion: В целом, попытку компании HP вернуться на рынок "умных" мобильных устройств можно считать удачной - в HP iPAQ 910 были устранены многие недостатки предыдущих коммуникаторов компании. К целевой аудитории новинки относится, прежде всего, корпоративный сектор - 910-й едва ли будет популярен у молодежи, они скорее предпочтут модный iPhone или стильный HTC Touch.
