where did you get this info from who will be saling the phone wit that 800 price tag
It's gonna be available on Oct 30, 2007. The retail price is $835. I love it, just waiting
I just had a phone call with a local HP office in Croatia and they're saying that it will be on the market in May 2008. Other model 610 will be available on the local market in February 2008...
Still a long time to wait, looks to me that they made a blueprint for the phone, and that it doesn't exist yet...
Does anyone know when it will be available ?
It almost seems too good to be true, but I don't see a catch!
Plus since it's HP I'm sure it has been tested more than, say, UBiQUiO :P
this phone is as close as u can get to a future smart phone. it has a touch screen, built in GPS nav, not to mention the 3 megapixel cam. and what's really intriguing is that this is a quadband phone. need i say more? on the downside, the dimensions and thickness of the phone is what makes it gayy.. screen is a little bit small and the thickness is almost like a psp! although i think this phone is much better, performance wise, than the samsung i780.
I cannot wait for this phone to come out... it has everything love to have on a phone except the screen Res. I think that 320 x 240 is not enough... I lov my Treo 700p with 320 x 320... I use my phone a lot for web browsing and the addition 80 pixels to me makea big difference... specially because the Pal Browser does a great job in reformatting the Webpages into a nice scrolable way. I hope that he new WM6 Professional will have better than the WM5 Browser.
I thk that havinga 3MP cam with autofoucus will make me leave my 6 MP Cam at home, since onkly use the 3MP on the Camara anyway.. I jst hope tha the night shot is good enough, because most phones are not that good.. specially without areal flash.
The cool part is the GPS, I hope the map software is nice and has 3D views... and the WIFI make it complete. Hopefully the fast 520MHz CPU will make th WM6 faster, because some of the other WM5 are very slow.
Anyway does anyone know whatprice and when is going to be released?
And what operator is going to carry first? ATT or T-Mobile?
Is this phone already for sale in Euope or Asia somewhere? How much?
Can't wait for it to hit the market. I love my 6515 (over two years) just wish it was 3g. I will still get to keep built in GPS and 3g, i'm there. I will have a funeral for the IR that I have never used, but i won't miss it. I will miss dual SD and Mini SD ports 12GB of memory between the two. I have more memory than the IPhone. But way to go HP.
I think this is outstanding phone.. The first that meets my quite tough requirements:
qwerty phone with the right screen rezolution (240*320, for most wm applications) + touchscreen + wlan + WM + 520 cpu.. Second best phone after nokia 9500/9300i/e90 series :) Now interested in battery issue, availability ant pricing :)
I have to say, this phone doesn't look very appealing. Features seem good but it can be better designed. Its probably gonna have the same problems with the 6925... its not worth the upgrade....
and this phone is gonna put a big dent in your wallet, its gonna cost just over $1000 USD, worth it? I don't think so. Not when they make it for so cheap.
Very good. I like GPS function.
And, of course - add Skype and enjoy!
I wish Palm OS device with all that features. (Office is much better.)
I shall buy this ASAP. This looks like and advanced version of HTC s620 which is the most practical phone I have come across.
probably the most beatiful and functional QWERTY phone around. good job HP. i hope it wont be too expensive.
Strange... it resembles the Asus M530W, but thats where it ends. Different features... but why do they have siimilar casing.. Same casing vendor? Or its the standard design for Windows Mobile 6.0? Geez... its hard to be creative aite!
Looks like a worthy upgrade to the hw6915. I look forward to the upcoming reviews. So far Im happy with my hw6965, So ill happily wait til it gets released within Australia
This must be the most cool form factor pda phone! handsome and sexy..!
You almost make it sound like hp will read your pathetic list of things the phone needs ;)
a hint, the phone has already been announced, with those features... all we can do is wait for the next one and hope it's not a dud.
These phone MUST have these features:
at least 256 k colors for the screen
card port for additional memory
at least an fm radio or a audio player
improve video frame rate like 30 fps
in order to get a share in the market. Potential customers are looking for thesew latest phone features.
