Review: HP moves to rival BlackBerry

By Daniel Robinson 01 Aug 2008
HP iPaq 914c Business Messenger Verdict: The iPaq 914c is an impressive messaging device that offers a reasonable keyboard and a scrolling BlackBerry-style thumbwheel. It also has a comprehensive set of features including GPS, Wi-Fi and HSDPA wireless capability. When used with Microsoft's MDM server, the device could potentially offer a high degree of management control, but this would require additional spending akin to deploying BlackBerry infrastructure.
Overall Rating: four star
Price: Manufacturer: HP
Pros: Decent keyboard; long battery life; thumbwheel for one-handed operation Cons: Relatively chunky and weighty; Office Mobile uses OOXML file formats
