Seems this phone does not support skype... or other way around - due to screen resolution required at the moment for skype mobile is 320x240px.
For the owner that want to synch with Vista:
No Vista driver, event at HP website nor CD
Overall is a good HP = no regret buy it
65k color is the depth of colors for each pixel (point on screen) not the resolution (number of pixels, points on its screen). Its resolution is very bad, very low; it is not suitable for Windows Mobile.
A little information for people who think 65k colour display on this phone is bad: Display is really 262 k colour but Windows Mobile supports max 64k, so the problem is with the OS, not the phone!!!
Well reading most opinions, i guess i have to wait a lil longer for a better model than this one.
Its resolution is less than resolution of any smart phones like QVGA; that means problems with the most graphical applications, too few words on its screen. It’s not about fancy features is about the quality and number of letters that you can see on that cheap display contrary to any trend in technology like HDTV. All displays go up; this phone’s display goes down.
I have bought one. I am a businessman. I need functionality not gimmicks.
A great phone! Some people just don't need the camera and don't need displays bigger than that.WM6 is what they need; Wi-fi is also a fantastic feature.
I don’t see how a mobile office can be integrated in a screen of 176 x 220 pixels on 2 inches. Probably for the most modest and stingy businessmen there might be room enough on that screen to read some short messages. The point is that for such feature there are already phones for $50 without Windows that needs high speed processors for any simple task.
This device is aimed at business users- they are not interested in the stupid "bells and whistles" horsepower comparison game- they want mobile office integration and a phone in a cheap, phone shaped, light package with a decent battery- nothing else!!
My goodness! It's not even touchscreen?? How primordial can you digress? Ipaqs are personal organizers, perfect for business users. Why would HP even bother to make this? As a smartphone, this is already 3 years obsolete and it has now abandoned the touchscreen which was the only thing that made it sensible. This is so lost.
Oh, I still don't understand why this phone could be better than Glofish x800 from Eten or any others. Even whether HP sells it for 10 bucks, the tech guys will long a decent screen resolution and higher processor speed. And whoever needs just a simple phone will not complicate his life with Windows Mobile 6. Windows is for high screen resolution and speed. So HP, you are going down the slope to low entry crappy stuff.
