HP Mobile Messenger HW 600 Review
Om Malik got his hands on an HP Mobile Messenger (or HW 6500 if you prefer) and came away rather impressed. He was impressed with the construction and form factor of the unit as a whole, but was disappointed in it’s lack of WiFi. Om also liked the bundled Good Technologies Wireless Email solution, finding it very Blackberry like. He found the keyboard comfortable and less cramped than the Treo 650 - an important feature on the rash of coming QWERTY phones. I personally own the HP 4355 that the Mobile Messenger inherits it’s keyboard and am a current Treo 650 user so I can see how having a wider keyboard like that would make the push email capabilities even more alluring. Check the link below for Om’s full thoughts on this new device - I’m personally going to wait for Windows Mobile 5.0 and it’s push email solution to come out before I plunk down for another QWERTY phone but this device might be right for the email hungry mobile professional with it’s imminent launch by Cingular.
