Pros Camera, GPS, Phone, and wireless all work very well simultaneously without any lockups
Cons Navtec GPS maps are a little steep to purchase
Summary So far I have had this device for 4 days and have tried running as many apps as I could together to try and find some bugs but so far everything works very well without any RESETS so far. The speed of apps have also been good with quick hookup times also for the GPS. I have often wondered why design a PDA without a camera, after all they are used to collect data, now we have one that you can take a pic, sync with email, travel to destinations, and hook up to the favorite WiFi hotspot all in one nice package. And anyone wondering how this works with the Cingular network, it is flawless after inserting your SIM. If you are looking for an all-in-one this HP should be at the top of your list.

Pros All devices i want in only one
Cons SD card memory slot for extra devices...
Summary This is the best PDA-Phone available at this moment, it like me some much!
Pocket PC, Unlocked GSM Cell phone, GPS, WiFi, bluetooth, irDA, and 416MHz processor enough!...
Pros Lighted easy to press keyboard
Cons Limited screen size, could use more memory
Summary This phone was worth the $599 I paid for it. Unlocked GSM, GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-FI and integrated navigation system from NAVTEQ. There are very phones matching up to features, but a few are. This is so much better than the Motorola Q if you are looking for features. No need to subscribe to a high cost data plan, I just use wi-fi at both home and work. Microsoft Pocket Streets is included. I do think that as cheap as flash memory is today that HP was stingy, it has 128 MB and with all of the software it really should have 256 MB. I expanded mine with a miniSD card (pay attention to the format). Screen could be bigger, but everyone wants a keyboard (I disagree, want space more than a keyboard). But, I am getting used to the smaller size of the screen. Overall, this replaces my Dell Axim x30 and I love the integration of the phone features with Windows Mobile 5.
Pros Connectivity WiFi/Bluetooth/GPS
Cons Phone very sluggish, case bulky/awkward
Summary I could live with the cons of this smart phone if the phone functioned quickly. If I press the phone button, I expect that I can start dialing with out waiting for a 5 second delay. You can't have anything in memory (Programs / O.S. tools) if you expect the phone to respond as a normal cell phone. If you had to make an emergency call with this phone somebody might die. How in the world did this phone get approved by PTCRB and Cingular?
Pros Many features
Cons Very very slow
Summary I am assuming that the reviewers that have rated this device highly have never had a PPC before. This device is my 6th PPC phone. It has the fastest processor, yet is the slowest of all of them. Every feature is sluggish. I thought that maybe it was mine, but I have seen articles that agree with me all over the Internet. It has all the features that you want, but some are even worth using because of the speed. GPS takes many minutes to activate with their software - frustrating. Google Maps fixes that problem as a free workaround though. However dialing delays, hangup delays....the other caller is still connected and can here what you are saying up to 4 seconds after you click the "End" button. So much more can be said. HP...what are you doing? Didn't you test this before realeasing to market? Ever think of some kind of firmware fix?
