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!
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.
Excerpt: Pros Features and lots of them! I'll just keep it simple here but very fast Internet 3G on T-Mobile I have not experienced any down load problems or slow e-mail speeds. The Stereo Blue tooth is sweet especially when streaming audio to my JVC Stereo in my truck (I just use the stereo remote to control the windows media player) or laptop I also suggest investing in a good Stereo Bluetooth head set Plantronics 590 works well for me.
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.
Excerpt: I like the phone, I go through alot of phones and so far the iPaqs have held up the best. I used to own a 6515 and I trashed it, that thing could withstand a 5 ft drop onto concrete. So when I purchased the 910 I also purchsed and aluminum case in which to protect it. PROS - I used microsoft outlook and having a windows based phone makes it incredibly easy to sync. - Tom Tom, again since its microsoft based all you need to do is install tom tom and your good to go!
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.
Summary: I've had several different Windows based devices over the last 4 years and this one is the best I've used. Yes, the phone dies if you are running bluetooth, WiFi, GPS etc... but what phone with all these features turned on doesn't fade quickly. (come to think of it my 12 cell laptop battery dies with all these things turned on as well) Keep it charged up and you should get 3 -4 hours of wireless 3G internet surfing, wifi and bluetooth.
