HP iPAQ Glisten

20 September 2010
  • Excerpt: HP hasn’t done much in the smartphone market to date. In 2008, they came out with three devices, the iPAQ 910, the Data Messenger and the Voice Messenger, none of which were successful. These devices, while good for the mobile professional, didn’t really have a mass market appeal. Well HP is back, this time with yet another device aimed at the business user.

HP iPAQ Glisten (AT&T)

PC Magazine
9 March 2010
  • Conclusion: There are zero surprises here; the iPAQ Glisten is a mediocre business smartphone for hooking into Microsoft's enterprise ecosystem and nothing more.
  • Pros: Vibrant AMOLED touch screen. Excellent keyboard. Tight Microsoft Exchange integration.
  • Cons: Poor Web browser and media player. Disappointing camera. Weak speakerphone.

HP Glisten

11 February 2010
  • Conclusion: The HP Glisten is literally a solid Windows Mobile QWERTY bar phone. It's well-made, sturdy and not bad looking as business phones go. But we can't say it adds anything new or enticing to the mix, and there's little that's changed since the HP 910c (which was a decent smartphone). What has changed is the OS, and unfortunately, Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional is less well suited to the QWERTY bar form factor than was Windows Mobile 6.1.
  • Pros: QWERTY messaging phone that's well-suited to business.
  • Cons: Small, low resolution display, not a multimedia demon.

HP iPAQ Glisten Review

LAPTOP Magazine
25 January 2010
  • Summary: At $179, the HP iPAQ Glisten is somewhat overpriced for what you get. Power users looking for a work and play device are much better off with a less expensive BlackBerry such as the Bold 9700 ($129), and mainstream consumers are better off with an OS and user interface that feels friendlier. Microsoft is trailing behind every other major competitor not only in its number of apps, but also in the look and feel of its venerable operating system.

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: Being away from the US mobile market for some time, HP definitely has one good looking Windows Mobile smartphone that gives other similar handsets a run for their money – like the Palm Treo Pro , Samsung Intrepid and HTC Snap . Throw in features like an AMOLED touchscreen, Wi-Fi, global capabilities, and a nice portrait style QWERTY and the Glisten will surely appeal to the business user.
  • Pros: Well-sized QWERTY, Great phone call quality, Solid construction
  • Cons: Untouched interface, Bluish color to display
