Excerpt: Though more well-known for its laptops and desktop PCs, HP is no stranger to smartphones. The company has released several models in the past, including the HP iPaq hw6945 Mobile Messenger and the HP iPaq 510 Voice Messenger, both of which have garnered some good user reviews, and now its hoping the HP iPaq 910c Business Messenger will do the same.
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.
Summary: We definitely recommend the HP iPaq 910c Business Messenger to hard-core business users who can benefit from its enterprise software - as long as they can live with its expansion-card limitations.
Excerpt: HP's iPAQ 910 is a tri-band HSDPA 3G capable smartphone that runs the Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional OS and features a QVGA touchscreen as well as a 3 megapixel autofocus camera. It might not be sexy, but it's great for business.
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.
Excerpt: In the world of smartphones, while Apple's TV ads insist that the company's Apple iPhone 3G "works great with work" and BlackBerry fans eagerly await RIM's BlackBerry Bold , Hewlett-Packard's new Windows Mobile 6.1-based HP iPaq 910c Business Messenger offers an 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.
