In addition to a flurry of new PCs, HP also announced this week that it would, at long last, start shipping the HP iPaq 900 smartphone on June 30. First introduced back in September 2007, the iPaq 900 is a business- and messaging-centric smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard; Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional Edition; a 3-megapixel camera; and integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. The quad-band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) smartphone also has tri-band UMTS/HSDPA support.
Currently, no U.S. carrier has picked up the device, though, according to HP, that may change in the future. (AT&T did pick up the HP iPaq hw6900 series a while back, so if any carrier will do it, we think it'll be AT&T.) For now, the iPaq 900 will be sold unlocked through HP's Web site, though pricing has not been finalized at this point.
