P.S. The email title is
"HP iPAQ 610 Business Navigator
Product Cancellation Notice"
The following is what I received email from HP.
"You recently registered via HP's website to be notified when the HP iPAQ 610 Business Navigator is available to purchase.
We appreciate your interest in this product. However, due to recent legal issues between suppliers of mobile phone technologies, HP has decided not to offer the iPAQ 610 Business Navigator to U.S. customers as previously planned.
Please consider other HP products that may meet your needs and at significant discounts!"
I doubt that the final release will be bug free (the delay usually hides issues). You have to wait to the fall for a customer tested one, don't rush to grab it.
My friend that works in a HP reseller company confirmed that this phone FINALLY arrives in March! Hope it will be worth of such a long waiting.
I can't wait that long anymore....They should not post (due Feb 2008) like that if they(HP) can't release at that date...SHAME ....BOOO! every day (not twice a week) I check on HP site, I see iPAQ 610 , but if I click the link, the page is unavailable. I was wondering that HP web masters did they know that the page is unavailable.......SHAME ......HP ...long way to go....because of web administrators....
Seems as though GsmArena left out the Handwriting Recognition feature.Found directions on how to use it from Fcc docs listed on page 13 of the user's manual. Paragraph that's titled "Enter Text". You can tell that it's specifically for this phone and not just a generic draft because it tells you how to disable the Smart-touch navigation wheel (unique to this phone) before entering text. It also give you choices like Transcriber, Block Recognizer, Keyboard... https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/ViewExhibitReport.cfm?mode=Exhibits&RequestTimeout=500&calledFromFrame=N&application_id=145238&fcc_id=%27B94HHI14CN%27
Love this phone but been waiting for ages!! Gave up waiting and got a nokia n95..best move ive made in a long time!! great phone....
There are production issues that affected the release, plus a new version of windows mobile 6 to come out and to be included in the phone....relax, its coming.
I just checked that the IPAQ 600 is still posted on the HP UK site and is still Due february 8.
Waiting impatiently to see reviews of the real unit...
FCC approval link :
There are quite a few Qualcomm chipset in this phone, check it out
They totally removed the page for this phone on HP.com. Cannot find the page I saw before, searched and zilch.
Maybe they found a major problem with the phone and will not be able to release it soon.
Gosh, does this mean that when they do release it, it's not a good idea to buy one since it might be buggy as hell?
Waaahhh.. and I've been waiting for ages.
This year... they lost me. I already bought the HTC Cruise. Let's see the HP phone's future.....
Shame , another month of waiting, what is wrong with HP, anyone knows what is the major problem that caused this delay ?
Just got off the phone with HP and now they say MARCH. I'm a loyal iPaq guy and have been waiting for this phone since CES 07 but I dont think I will wait much longre then March 3rd to replace my Blackberry. Come on HP stop dragging you feet.
Some days back when i checked the HP website, i find that this model is no longer listed. I tried to do a search on this model but nothing appears. I guess they are not going to release this model
everyone who waitin for this phone ..check this link at http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/uk/en/sm/WF06a/21675-21679-21679-21679-297609-80598157.html
I wanted this phone last October. I gave up waiting and bought an iPhone.
Best thing I ever did!!!
I saw yesterday in HP England like 360 "pounds" and it said it was due for Feb 08. Today there was no price and NO release date. That would be 700$.
