Compare iPAQ Voice Messenger Deals

HP’s iPAQ Voice Messenger is a monoblock smartphone in a smoked chrome metallic finish and running Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system. At 50 x 136 x 114 mm, it provides a comfortable palmful, but not heavy at 107g. Beneath a circular central navigation pad, the alpha numeric QWERTY keypad is nicely spaced with each key providing home to one number and two letters, as opposed to the usual cramped three-letter arrangement of most keypads.

There is a 3.1 megapixel camera with autofocus, 5 x digital zoom, LED flash and a maximum 2048 x 1536 QXGA resolution, so picture quality can be excellent. A quad-band phone for potential global roaming, the Voice Messenger is HSDPA-enabled for fast internet/broadband speed connectivity and, as the name suggests, offers a full range of messaging options, plus Wifi for hotspot and WLAN working.

A Voice Commander feature enables you to make calls, compose messages, record voice messages and even ask "what time is it?" Also included is the Mobile Office suite of applications including Word and Excel so you can edit work documents while on the move, plus Jetcet Print and PDF 5.

It has in-built GPS with Google Maps and Bluetooth with A2DP, enabling you to use a wireless headset. An excellent addition – as on the Palm Treo – is a switch on top: slide it along and the device goes into silent mode – no fiddling around with menus.

It has 256 Mbytes’ internal storage and a microSD slot for up to 8GB additional storage. All in all, a nifty little mid-range handset with a few surprises.
