Excerpt: I purchased an overseas phone because this one has everything that I need in a phone/pda device.
Set up is straight forward and very easy to do (even though this is a UK model and I am in the US).
WM5 (play movies and music)
GPS (a fantastic advantage)
Phone quality above average
I have had some problems with headsets (blue tooth mainly) and this might be due to the person whose phone I was talking to, I am trying other wired headsets right now.
Excerpt: I've used The Mogul, Wing, 8125, 8525, Treo 750, and a bevy of other smartphones, both Windows Mobile and non-Windows Mobile; yet the HP Ipaq 6915 is the best off all! Of course, no phone is perfect, but this is darn close!
Battery life sucks, but then again, I do use many features, as well as my added on crap.
The internet is kinda slow for the processor that it has (416 mhz). Whoever said that size matters was wrong!
No Windows Mobile 6 upgrade will be available.
Excellent phone. Other reviewers didn't learn the phone.

Excerpt: I purchased HP iPAQ hw6945. Most negative input from other reviewers is just plain wrong. They didn't dig into this feature intense PocketPC
RINGER MYTH: MP3 files aren't supported
RINGER FACT: You can use MP3 file as ringers
STORAGE M:Not enough storage.
STORAGE F: I bought 1GB mini-SD. It's working fine. I've saved a handful of MP3 songs to it, and several short videos.
Excerpt: We purchased this pda to use with rogers wireless in Canada. Threw in our sim cards and they worked as phones right away. Nice sound with the speaker phone. The EDGE also worked and we were syncing with exchange in 30 minutes. The GPS is cool, but microsoft maps of our area are crap.
The screen should be 480x480. The 240 res just looks blocky. Battery life is 1 day, so charge at night.
Excerpt: I have had this phones for about 2 months now, and I am very impressed with the performance.

Summary: This is the best PDA i've tried so far. The GPS works fine and is quick to locate the satellites. The wifi is very handy but the browser is still an old version not compatible with newer websites. Still you can download a better one aswell as loads of other apps and games. So handy to have everything you need in one package.
Summary: Ipaq 6915 does almost everything I need in a mobile office, and most of the time i don't need to carry my laptop to meetings. Documents for meetings download to it. Gps with add-on maps for Western and Eastern Europe allow me to find my way across Europe. wifi lets me interogate email and access networks/internet. Phone is works, and with skype mobile uploaded foc, I can also use it as a skype phone.
