HP just released two new smartphones with Vodafone (Europe) today.

The new iPAQ Voice Messenger and iPAQ Data Messenger both run on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional.

The Data Messenger features a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a touchscreen. The Voice Messenger doesn’t have a touchscreen, and features a standard alphanumeric keypad, as it is focused primarily on voice calling.

Orange Stops BlackBerry Bold Sales



Orange is one of the big players amongst the mobile phone carriers in Europe, and they made a “bold” move yesterday towards the RIM device.

They asked their associates in the UK to stop sales of the BlackBerry Bold altogether because of software malfunction that causes headaches to both their users and their tech support people.

This will probably force RIM to work twice as fast on a patch to the existing problems that the BlackBerry Bold suffers from, here in America as well as in the European market.
