With it’s slide out Qwerty keyboard, TrustedReviews puts this device in direct competition with the HTC S740 and the Xperia X1. Quite large shoes to fill as the Â HP iPAQ Data Messenger isÂ seemingly bulky and does not posess the utter sexiness of the X1, nor does this device have the eye candy of TouchFlo3D that my beloved HTC Fuze has got.
The overall sentiments of this review seem to be that the HP iPAQ Data Messenger is a solid device as far as functionality goes, and is up to the task of being a reliable handset for the business professional, which seems to be the demographic that itÂ is aimed at. While this is a driver that is relatively easy on the eyes,Â it does not seem thatÂ it is anythingÂ to get all hot and bothered about.
Dont take our word for it though. Have a look at the full review here, then give us your opinion in the comments.Â
