HP iPAQ K3 with AT&T logo
An unofficial photo of HP’s iPAQ K3 Obsidian smartphone complete with AT&T logo has surfaced, all but confirming an earlier leak that had the handset due at the American carrier. The QWERTY handset bears a resemblance to traditional BlackBerry devices, and otherwise sports a 2.43-inch AMOLED touchscreen and is preloaded with Windows Mobile 6.5. There is also a 3.2-megapixel camera, tri-band 3G UMTS/HSDPA network support, a Wi-Fi connection and GPS.
Processing power comes courtesy of a 528MHz Qualcomm chip and 256MB of RAM. Storage is via 512MB of built-in memory or on an external microSD card. A native 3.5mm headset jack is also a rarity on this style of Windows Mobile device.
As in the earlier report, AT&T should receive the iPAQ K3 on November 30th. While pricing is unknown, it's expected to fall in the $200 range after rebates and on a contract. [via SlashGear]
