Some fans of the HP iPaq hw6500 series may have had a bit of a panic attack yesterday when rumors started to surface that HP would be recalling these much-anticipated smart phones. However, today they can let out a sigh of relief, as the rumors are false. We talked to an HP representative yesterday, and she said the hw6500 series is alive and kicking. The hw6510/hw6515 delivers a feature-filled Windows Mobile-based smart phone in a slick package (thankfully, much sexier and slimmer than the HP iPaq h6315's). It's a quad-band GSM phone with support for EDGE speeds, an integrated QWERTY keyboard, and Bluetooth. Oh, and did we mention GPS functionality? It'll give RIM BlackBerrys good competition and perhaps owners reason to pause. Check back soon for our full review.
