HP iPAQ Glisten Review

Brighthand
31 March 2010
  • Summary: I like the HP iPAQ Glisten , and it's a slick, powerful little device. Unfortunately, there isn't anything terribly exciting about it either, aside from the gorgeous AMOLED touchscreen display. Perhaps this is due to the fact that I review a lot of devices, but it does seem the Glisten is something of a "me too" device.
  • Pros: Gorgeous AMOLED display, Snappy performance, Good battery life
  • Cons: Relatively poor speakerphone performance, most notably low speaker volume, Occasionally stuttery music playback, Annoying five-way navigator

  • Summary: Offering the bare minimum, the HP iPaq Glisten fails to impress us. It can serve the role of a basic messaging smartphone, but there are better alternatives out there.
  • Cons: The smartphone has a low-resolution screen that really isn't optimized for a touch user interface. It has subpar multimedia capabilities, and performance can be sluggish at times.

PC Magazine

  • 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

MobileTechReview.com
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

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.
  • Pros: Fast Web browsing, Bright AMOLED touchscreen, Large keyboard, Updated user interface,
  • Cons: Low-resolution display, Mediocre touch experience, Limited app selection, Relatively slow processor,
