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.
HP already has an all-in-one touchscreen PC they call the HP TouchSmart. I’ve tested it quickly the other day at the store, and frankly, I wasn’t impressed.
Sure, it’s fun for the first few minutes, but then you just don’t see the point.
Anyhow, we are hearing rumors of a TouchSmart laptop coming along from HP before the end of 2008. Stay tuned for more!
Asus is finally offering their new touchscreen EeePC to the world!
You might have thought that it would be another netbook but this time, Asus is surprising us once again with this new all-in-one, mini-iMac clone that also reminds me of a really small version of the HP TouchSmart PC. This computer comes with Windows XP Home edition.
Here are the main specs from Play.com:
- Intel ATOM (1.6GHz/533MHz FSB/512K Cache)
- 1GB RAM (DDR2 667)
- 160GB HD (SATAII 5400rpm)
- Shared Graphics (128MB)
- 15.6″ (16:10 Wide Panel) TouchScreen Display
Asus is planning to add touchscreen functionnalities (as seen on the HP Touchsmart all-in-one PC) to its popular line of EeePCs starting in 2009.
It hasn’t officially been announced as of now but we should see the first models appearting at the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
What do you get when you mix the iPhone / iPod Touch interface along with a Windows Vista computer ? You get the HP TouchSmart! It’s an all-in-one concept like the Apple iMac. It has a 22 inch screen but has less speedy processor speeds than available on the iMac.
This computer will use a custom ”skin” along with Windows Vista and enable users do many operations only with the use of their fingers… looks promising.
