HP announce the iPaq Glisten

Looking for a Smartphone with a forward facing QWERTY keyboard and a touchscreen? Until now that was a pretty tall order, I can think of only a couple of other handsets that fit the bill, the JAQ3 Springs to mind, but they are all pretty long in the tooth now. So HP have stepped up to the plate with their new iPAQ Glisten which offers a beautiful 2.5″ AMOLED 320×240 Touchscreen display and full QWERTY keyboard. Also sporting the latest Windows Mobile 6.5 OS sounds like a really cool device, right?


So what’s the catch? Well currently it’s only available in the USA and HP have no plans to bring it to the UK at the moment. Real shame I think as it looks like a lovely handset that certainly would fill a big void in the market.
