It’s a little too soon to tell, but at first glance I’m gonna assume HP’s latest phones are gonna disappoint. Why so? They don’t really bring anything particular to the vast and overwhelming see of smartphones, plus they’re running the God awful Windows Mobile 6.1. Furthermore, the Data Messenger seems to lack, or at least make mention of mutlitouch, so it’s safe to assume it don’t exist. But without further a due, let’s take a glance at what they’re offering.

HP Data Messenger:

  • 2.81-inch, 65k color touchscreen with an LED backlight
  • Full QWERTY slide out keyboard
  • WiFi b/g and Bluetooth 2.0 EDR

  • GPS and A-GPS
  • microSD slot and 256MB flash RAM
