HP today unveiled a new line of iPAQ handheld devices. The lineup includes the h6315, the company's first handheld with built-in mobile phone capabilities. The h6315 is also one of the first devices to include three types of radios: GSM/GPRS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. The unit will be available for T-Mobile USA, and includes special software that allows the device to automatically use the faster Wi-Fi data connection when in range of a T-Mobile HotSpot, and automatically fall back to T-Mobile's GPRS network at other times. The h6315 will be available from T-Mobile later this summer.

Battery life

I'm wondering what battery life on this device will be like, if the underpowered OMAP CPU will help give it something closer to a phone's battery life..

wow, who cares

Anyone see TechTV where they were demoing off the VZW 3G aircards?

Guess what they did... they used HIGH SPEED INTERNET EVERYWHERE... when they had a bad signal they reverted back to CDPD seamlessly!

That sounds a whole lot better than going from the HotSpot (limited locations) to GPRS (slow as hell all over).
EV-DO is pretty cool. (By the way, I believe the cards fall back to 1xRTT, not CDPD.)

But this is still a great step forward for T-Mobile. T-Mobile's HotSpot is pretty popular as Wi-Fi services go, and seamless integration with GPRS is a huge deal ...
