HP iPAQ 510: It Lives!

Looks like HP resurrected its near-dead brand of PDAs. The new iPAQ 510 is a strange, yet slim phone device that runs Windows Mobile 6 and comes with features like Skype, EDGE, Wi-Fi and extended battery life.

Despite packing some decent features, we still have no clue why HP would continue the iPAQ brand. Says Laptop Mag:

The HP iPAQ 510 Voice Messenger is a solid phone for people who like the idea of having Outlook in their pocket but don’t need a QWERTY keyboard. HP does a nice job of not only incorporating the Windows Mobile 6 OS but improving upon it as well. If you have your heart set on a high-performing Voice Commander functionality, though, you might want to wait for round two before spending $300.

They end up giving the iPAQ 510 three out of five stars, not exactly what I’d call earth-shattering. If you really have a lot of cash to spend, then I guess you could drop $300 on it—though I’d try to avoid doing so.
