HP wants to be #1 in smartphone business
Ted Clark, general manager of mobile computing, Hewlett-Packard, gave an interview according to which HP plans to become #1 not only in the notebook market, but also in the smartphone market. How very interesting considering that HP has not released a single smartphone yet! Bloomberg News is citing the manager saying that
The company is experimenting with designs for a smart phone that will be smaller than the iPAQ handheld computer it sells to businesses and consumers, Clark said. He declined to provide any other details. The smart phone is part of the evolution of Hewlett-Packard's iPAQ line as the market for traditional pen-based handheld computers declines, Rick Roesler, vice president of handhelds, said in an interview.

'Leaked' my foot. HP deliberately timed the supposedly leaked photo to coincide with the Treo's 650 GSM release. And it seems to have the desired effect with many in my country holding off Treo 650 purchases until they get more info about the Mobile Messenger (Nice name!).
Still, I feel it will be much bigger than the Treo unless they shrink the screen. It looks slimmer though. But I am still getting a Treo 650 despite the HPMM.
It's also HP's second smartphone (though it seems to be using the phone edition instead of the smartphone variant of Windows Mobile), the first being the slow h6315. This one looks to be a great competition to the Treo 650, let's just hope, PalmOne is up to the challenge.
