Summary: Disclosure: I am an HP employee although I have nothing to do with HP Phones or hand-held devices. I bought this phone for my own use. This may have made me more persistent in seeking out things like the latest OS update but I think my review remains fair. I saw some of the same problems as other reviewers but after updating the OS from HP's website I really like this phone.
Pros: -GPS -lots of ram - landscape, makes sense for work and surfing but...(see below)
Cons: -crashes often (note, I install a bunch of software) - stupid native landscape prevents a LOT of games, most games are240*320, this device is 320*240 -Screen is "small" compared to my old device, but I is big enough for my use - NO headphone jack

Summary: Great phone! It took me a while to get used to but I think I got it down. If you don't like phones that are too advanced and confusing then this phone is not for you. Definitely an acquired taste!
Pros: It has everything I need: Win Mobile 6.1, Bluetooth, WiFi, fast HSDPA/3.5G, GPS, real keyboard, voice command, ... just name it. It's fast and reliable. Additional buttons and connection to external GPS antena is plus.
Summary: It is a great work tool for me. It is a lot smaller than the old HW 6945 and it is definitely better-looking. As I'm never on one place, its mobility is great. Quick 3G internet, you can even run Skype on it while using the 3G network (low costs) I had an Iphone 3G but I prefer the HP Ipaq with its windows mobile 6.1 No hassle to put song, movies, pictures or other data on the phone and when needed just take out the memory card en put it in a computer or card reader.
Summary: After 2 weeks of almost non-stop messing with my iPAQ 910, I decided to write a review to share my findings with the world. While this phone is just about everything I could have hoped for, it does have a few drawbacks too that I have not figured out a workaround for yet. On the plus side, this phone is every bit as powerful as a windows mobile phone can be. Setting everything up and syncing all my contacts, files, ect. was a snap, and I was up and moving in minutes.
Summary: This phone is a nice phone. The screen could be bigger, but otherwise it is allright. Most people complain about short battery life - yes, but this depends on two things: the 3G/HDSPA burns energy like a semi the gas. Raise the timeframe to check for emails. But that is not the worst battery killer: it is the screen! Make sure, the screend turns off and not just dimms. This is not turned on by factory default.
Summary: The phone works well and I have no problems with battery life, as I live in Ethiopia and don't use bluetooth, etc. What I want is easy interface with my Outlook (calendar and contacts) and the phone does this even better than my previous ipaq (h6300 series). I hope HP will have sorted out the durability problems of battery etc on the previous h6300 - I got through about 4 batteries in 3 years and eventually both the main charging and the USB charging stopped working.
