HP recently announced a candy-bar smart phone as the latest addition to its iPAQ series. This new addition is part of HP's strategy to complete its enterprise portfolio of desktops, laptops, servers, and mobile devices; it will be sold as 510 in the US, 512 in Asia and 514 in Europe. This phone definitely lacks the pizzaz needed for the consumer market, and the 176 by 220 screen resolution is the proof. On the other hand, HP has put a lot of effort into it to make it attractive for the enterprise market. This Windows Mobile 6 Standard device features a UMA client which will enable VoIP calls over the enterprise WiFi network using the IP based PBX. The phone will make VoIP for calls whenever possible and will switch to regular GSM network calls when VoIP is not possible. It can transition between the two seamlessly. This can prove beneficial to companies trying to reduce their communication costs. This phone also features a voice recognition system and can read out emails.

Another new device that appears to be lacking in the specs market. I do like the sounds of the Voip client. But I'm not sure I care enough about that to take a step backwards on everything else.

If it could handle data in the same manner, then I would really have to consider it. But something tells me it's just for calls.

I think so too.

The low resolution forces me to think that you cannot put too much on the screen. That said I am confused and amazed that the home screen has a lot of info on it.
