Hey buddy, I am almost fixed to buy the hp IPAQ 6965. I have few query with this one.
1. my usage would be to sync this device with my Outlook mails and read it on travel. Basically activesyncing my mails and appointments. Has anyone tried this and further, does this have an impact on the Processin speed of the device.
2. Do we need to buy any module for using GPS in this device?
3. Can we install any program on the memory card rather than the phone memory? ( i guess this will increase the processing speed).
4.I am gonna SMS and send mails a lot from this device. How user friendly is the keyboard?
5. Where do we get these devices from?? Bcos, I also enquired on 600 series and didnt get any respose from Hp. ALso, they say that, we dont hav service or warranty in india..is this true.??
Sorry to take a lot of time of yours..Please answer thwese queries for me.
Else, do you have any other device which has better processing speed? Plz suggest.
Hi seba, i have this phone as well and tried to use GPS function on Google Maps. Google Maps takes a while (too long a while actually) to track your location and locate the GPS. You do not require any other form of connection (wifi, GPRS, GSM, or whatever) to connect to GPS. It is a direct radio link to the GPS satellites up in the sky. Oh, and you will need to be in the open, with line of sight to the sky. Does not work well indoors, and sure as hell does not work underground. You may also want to check that your GPS port is set correctly, to COM8 or COM6. Hardware port should be COM8, while software to COM6. Instead of using Google Maps, why not use MapKing? Its a great routing software and great for driving (with voice nav direction). It came bundled with my ipaq 612c in singapore.
HP sells all their hardware products through HP resellers. So catch hold of a HP reseller in Bangalore. I am in Pune and am also looking for someone who can sell this phone to me. This one has everything that one can expect from a modern PDA/phone. I have seen an older model of HP PDA phone working and its amazing.
guys, since you got this device already, could you let me know the following, battery life in case we use only the pda as a normal phone ? with almost none time spent on playing around with the pda programs ?
I am trying to decide betweeen 910c and 610c. I looking for a decent battery life..
Yesterday I bought this phone in Indonesia (ioaq 612) and I am disappointed. I read in this forum that this mobile has integrated GPS, that means you can connect to satellites even if you are offline. My phone comes with Google Maps and it is usefull without a GPRS o Wifi connection. Is there any software that allows this phone to connect the GPS without a GPRS or Wifi?????. Even with a Wifi connection, Google Maps can not find any satellite! Please anyone who can give me some help I will be glad. Thanks
I have been reading gsmarena since a week :-) to hunt my PDA. Well, I am in a big chaos choosing one. I had shortlisted, asus P520, Asus P750, Sony P1i, HTC - 3300, HTC-4350 and yess..... this sweet one.
This device looks a pocket size powerhouse while looking at the processing speed. One thing which is haunting me is, i am not able to find a outlet to try this device in India. (Bangalore). Does any one in India own this device?? If yes, please let me knlow here do we get this from?
ALso, it would be great if you could suggest me which one do I opt for??(otherwise)
Hi friends.. cant this thing open web page containing Java Applet? I'm considering to buy this one.
i have the 614c for one month now and the power button it's not stepped easily.
I've found some images in a blog made with HP iPAQ 614c
I think iPAQ 614c test pictures
Finally got my hands on this phone after a almost 7 months wait (!!!). Yes, I am surprised I actually waited so long. No problems so far with any connectivity. Phone works perfectly, wifi took a while to set up and detect, but ultimately, it could detect and connect to my home network. Connecting to the free public wifi was a little unstable, but that's probably due to the network. Bluetooth was ok too. No problems whatsoever. My phone came with bundled MapKing software and installation was a breeze and it took no time at all to get a GPS fix and I was on my way! I must say I am very impressed with the very little time it took to get a GPS fix. I've heard of phones requiring up to 1 minute to get a fix, but this got a fix in a snap (like 15 secs!). Comes with MS powerpoint, word and excel so working on these documents was easy. Also has PDF reader to read PDF files. OS was very stable and quite quick, even with many apps running. Overall, very satisfied with the phone.
Oh, one thing.... do disable the scroll wheel though. Useless...
glad to hear you have sorted out the problems with the device. hopefully u will now enjoy its full potential. :)
thanks, I have sorted out in the meantime. I got working googlemail after reading all possible internet forums. The real trouble was the SMTP server setting as the free wifi provider didnt have any for free users and Orange doesnt support sending email without it, which seems to be a problem with Orange in all countries.
Sometimes having problems with communication between navigation software & GPS, hardware port on GPS is set on 6 and software port on 8. Anyone had this problem?
i am now writing from the fone connected to a wifi. i have no problems with the signal. i use only wifi not 3g. if u contimue to have problems try to make a hard reset
I travel extensively throughout Asia, Africa, Europe and the US so this phone appeals to me with all of the bands and options. I want to be able to use skype with video but this phone does not have a second (video conferencing) camera on the front. I would like to know from any of those that actually use this phone if you can use skype (or 3g video call) and use the main camera on the back to send the image and still see the incoming image on the screen. What I have in mind is to face the mirror in the hotel room, so that my kids can see me via mirror while I see them on the screen as I talk to them. Is this possible with this phone? many thanks.
does HP IPaq610 c supports blackberry software?
In which countries the device is available today?
Thanks for your kind feedback
I see there a lot of talk about the integrated gps, finnaly my question is: is it possible to select the gsp mode? I mean to select normal GPS mode (dont use any assisted servers via GPRS, 3G), use if available, and so on. Also I understand there is no stereo jack on it, I'd like to connect to the car audio system, how is that possible? Is there some car accesory for it?
