HP rx5915 Launches

The PDA market has been rapidly eroding as smartphones and other multi-role devices quickly take over. This may be the motivation for a radically new direction in HP's iPAQ line, which was previously leaked but becomes official today with the formal announcement of the rx5915 Travel Companion. As anticipated, the new HP handheld is a hybrid GPS navigator and media player. TomTom's NAVIGATOR 6 software is preloaded and is accompanied by software that monitors traffic and weather. In its most common form, the rx5915 will come with 2GB of built-in flash plus an SD card slot to store maps, music, and videos. HP has also made Internet access a priority. Browsing the Web is relatively straightforward from the 3.5-inch touchscreen, as the device can either connect to a nearby WiFi hotspot or use its Bluetooth receiver to use mobile access from a cellphone. The rx5915 is available for $600 but hasn't been given an official release date.
