Hewlett Packard’s rw6815 has been given an October European release and will likely clock in around the â‚¬549.99 mark (inc VAT). There’s no 3G functionality built into the handset but it makes for a nice, smaller model in comparison to the 6500 series (the hw6515 which I’m currently using). From HP directly….
The HP iPAQ rw6815 Personal Messenger is small in size but big on connectivity and features so users can make phone calls, send text and instant messages, surf the Internet, check emails, and much more. Key features include:
- Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, and e-mail sync automatically over the mobile phone network using Direct Push Technology, keeping schedules, important phone numbers, and “to do” lists up to date
- Microsoft Office lets users read presentations, spreadsheets and documents so they can work when and where they want.
- Entertainment features combine user music, photos, videos and built-in HP Photosmart Camera all together in one ultra-portable device.
These new products provide the rich mobile data experience that customers are demanding for both professional and personal productivity,” said Neil Dagger, senior category manager, handhelds, HP Personal Systems Group, UK & Ireland.
