In addition to a flurry of new PCs , HP also announced this week that it would, at long last, start shipping the HP iPaq 900 smartphone on June 30. First introduced back in September 2007, the iPaq 900 is a business- and messaging-centric smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard; Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional Edition; a 3-megapixel camera; and integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. The quad-band (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) smartphone also has tri-band UMTS/HSDPA support.

Currently, no U.S. carrier has picked up the device, though, according to HP, that may change in the future. (AT&T did pick up the HP iPaq hw6900 series a while back, so if any carrier will do it, we think it'll be AT&T.) For now, the iPaq 900 will be sold unlocked through HP's Web site, though pricing has not been finalized at this point.
