HP iPAQ rx4000

The recent introduction of the Sony Mylo has helped trigger a new interest in WiFi-based communicators - an interest which will be very beneficial to HP as it introduces its new iPAQ rx4000 Mobile Media Companion. Unlike previous iPAQ versions, the rx4000 is not a PDA or smartphone: it instead shares the Mylo's emphasis on Internet access and media playback. The rx4000 relies on a 2.8-inch touchscreen for controlling its Windows Mobile 5 interface, providing easier playback of music and videos in either landscape or portrait mode (a scroll wheel exists to speed up some tasks). WiFi is naturally the cornerstone of the design and can be used to browse the Web, download files, and communicate with others through VoIP software such as Skype. Bluetooth is also present for connecting devices such as cellphones or headsets. Some details are absent in the current announcement, such as internal storage or pricing; however, a Fall release near the estimated $350 price of the Mylo is entirely possible depending on the amount of included storage.
