I believe A-GPS works the same way as an ordinary GPS chip. The usage of the GSM network is an extra; I mean if there is no GSM then no problem, it will only depend on the satellite signal.
Have you tried viewing the photos on a computer? I mean if you check a photo taken by a 3.2 Mega Pixel cam on a 65K QVGA screen @ 240x320 I think the image quality might appear as "bad". Would you please try viewing the photo taken on a PC and let us know?
Also would you mind test what Frankie pointed at; i.e. does the GPS work fine if there is no SIM card inside? Or if there is no GSM coverage? How about the touch wheel?
I'm writing for magazine in Macedonia, and local HP office gave us this pjone to test it...
My first impression is that this is very solid phone, wifi works perfect, camera is very bad...
More to come from me...
Does it only have A-GPS and no standalone GPS receiver ? So you need active GSM connection to use the navigation functions !
I'm not sure I want it that way.
The Price Tag is 599$ on HP's website.
Yes, it comes with a stylus.
And yes, it has a storage space on its body to store the stylus.
Will this come with a stylus? and does it have a place to store the stylus on its body?
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for that too. Please GSMArena team write a review about this phone as soon as it comes out. i hope somebody reads this :)
I used several HP products, and they never failed me, not even once. My 3052 Multifunction Laser Jet is great. My laptop, and my friends' are working just fine; never even emailed the support guys. HP local dealer in my country is respectful, and they ensure original products, after sale services, and maintenance. I guess it was mere coincidence or bad luck with you man.
I also think this phone will be a hit, and the price tag is not really high, 599$ on HP website, compared to the functionality. The only question is: what is the type of the GPS chip used? Is it SiRFstar III??
All we have to do now is sit tight, wait for the phone to actually start shipping, and hope that GSMArena people will give it a try and write a detailed review.
When will this phone be out.
It is a very good product.
I want one I only hope that it will not be expensive.
Have to wait for 2 more months for this gadget to come out. Hope its not expensive!
The HP is better in functionality, but the LG is smaller and is a fashion phone. so, you decide! :)
Um...why O2 atom exec can use 256k colour even windowws mobile can't support more than 65k colour
HP has poor support,having regard to (a) 26th Oct.07 ZDnet report about its Notebook problems and very poor support by its Help
and (b) my own experience with its printer - no response to my repeated written requests for help. Please do bear in mind that suupoort is vital for phone users in any event.
I request HP to add "camera for 3G video calling" and "FM radio receiver" in iPAQ 614C series.
Although P750 & 612 having same processor speed of 520MHz, however, P750 & 612 having 64MB & 128MB respectively. 128MB good for multi application.
The selection may depends own individual need and budget availability.
How come the LG new phone KS20 Window Mobile 6 does support is TFT touchscreen, 256K colors? with Size 240 x 320 pixels, 2.8 inches. http://www.gsmarena.com/lg_ks20-2105.php
The round thing is a iPod like sensor.
