HP iPAQ details, photos

A Swedish site has obtained photos and information on five new HP iPAQ handhelds. The focus of the group is the 914 smartphone (right), which has 7.2Mbps HSDPA, along with other highlights such as 802.11b/g, a three-megapixel camera and preloaded copies of Windows Mobile and Google Maps. A 2.5-inch touchscreen is complemented by a QWERTY keyboard. The phone should be released in November for approximately $798 (without a carrier).

The 614 drops the QWERTY layout, but retains essentially everything else, and in fact introduces a built-in GPS receiver. It should be ready in October for the same price as the 914.

The 314 is actually a dedicated GPS navigator, controlled entirely through a 4.3-inch, 800x480 touchscreen. It syncs with Outlook and cellphone contacts via Bluetooth, and can also play various media files. Maps of western Europe are preloaded, suggesting a delayed (or absent) North American release.

The 214 lacks phone or GPS functions, essentially making it a traditional PDA; it does however run Windows Mobile, and it comes equipped with Wi-Fi, which can be used for web browsing or VoIP calls. The primary interface is a four-inch VGA touchscreen. It should ship in October, at a cost of $551.

The 114, lastly, is a stripped-down version of the 214, with 64MB of RAM and a screen reduced to 3.5 inches and 240x320 resolution. Bluetooth is the only other identified feature. It is also expected to launch in October, with a price of $435. [via Unwired View]
