HP Announces iPAQ Data Messenger and Voice Messenger – Not For You US Users!

So yea – there are now some pretty slick looking iPAQs in the pipeline, but not everyone in the world will get to enjoy their features. Specifically, those in the Europe / Middle East / Asia Pacific markets may come across them (With high speed data through of a deal with Vodafone), but North Americans need not apply. Its a shame too, for once the stats on these HP devices look current and they certainly appear sleek from a design standpoint. Pictured above is the Data Messenger, the voice messenger and stats appearing after the break!

Both devices sport all the bells and whistles radio wise you’d expect. 3G service, Quad-band GSM, Integrated GPS, Bluetooth 2.0, and 802.11g. They have the Windows Mobile 6.1 OS loaded with a bunch of extras (e.g. google maps, Westek Jetcet PDF and Jetcet Print, and a few others), a 3.1 MP camera with auto focus and LED flash, and a Micro-USB charging slot. It will support Micro-SD cards, and has 256 MB of ROM and 128 MB SDRAM. No VGA – QVGA on both. Finally both devices have the Qualcomm 7201A 528 Mhz processor. The voice messenger is obviously aimed at those who want a lighter product with no keyboard, while the data messenger is targeted toward the keyboard crowd. Pretty impressive, and if it is available ultra soon (e.g. not 6 months from now, as HP is notorious for) then I think they’d both be pretty nice hits for HP. Just wish they were available in the US – I’ve been lusting for a new device lately!
