HP iPAQ Voice Messenger unboxing

Just a few weeks ago we had a look at the HP iPAQ Data Messenger, the review of which will be live in shortly. This week we’re looking at it’s little brother, the HP iPAQ Voice Messenger. This model is smaller and lighter than the Data Messenger and has a 20 key compact QWERTY rather than the sliding QWERTY keyboard.


The HP iPAQ Voice Messenger


The Voice Messenger has a candy-bar style form and runs Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard (Smartphone) so there’s no touchscreen. However, we do get integrated GPS, WiFi and a pretty fast CPU coupled with decent ROM and RAM capacity. The front is gloss black and the back and sides are made of polished silver-grey metal which really looks nice if a little Blackberry-ish.

We’re reviewing the Voice Messenger at the moment alongside the Data Messenger and we should have those review here for you soon. For now, here is the HP iPAQ Voice Messenger unboxing video which you can watch to find out more.
