HP Silver WM Smartphone gets SureType

Written by test

Takes on RIM


HP's upcoming Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard Smartphone code named Silver has made a couple of appearances and it looks like it's set to take on the BlackBerry Pearl with its SureType keypad. The Silver lacks a traditional touch screen, but it's meant to have some kind of a light sensitive navigation option for scrolling around the 320x240 resolution display, but this information is as yet unconfirmed.

We can't say we're overly keen on the design, but it packs a pretty impressive feature set with 7.2Mbit HSDPA, WiFi 802.11b/g and a built in GPS, although there's no mention of Bluetooth at this stage, which seems odd.

It also has a micro USB port and what appears to be either a 2.5mm or 3.5mm headset jack on the right hand side of the device. It looks like Vodafone might be the first network with this device and it's expected to show up in the U.K. sometime later this year for about £250 (€317), although we'd expect it to be heavily subsidized by the network.

You can find some more details here and some more pictures here.
