iPaq smart phone's coming-out party

Cingular will be the first U.S. carrier to get the HP iPaq hw6920 Mobile Messenger.

This Halloween, Hewlett-Packard's latest handheld gadget is dressing up as a Cingular Wireless smart phone.

As long suspected, the iPAQ hw6920 series Mobile Messenger will make its U.S. debut on the Cingular network. That means full access to GSM/GPRS/EDGE goodness, plus other wireless fun, like Wi-Fi, GPS, infrared and Bluetooth.

The iPaq hw6925 is equipped with a 1.3-megapixel HP Photosmart camera for photo and video capture (the hw6920 does not), Windows Media Player 10 Mobile, and a built-in GPS feature that requires software downloaded from Cingular, Microsoft or HP.

The iPaq is available from Cingular's B2B sales for $360 with a two-year agreement or directly from HP.com. Check out CNET Reviews' take on it here.
