There have been reports a couple people are wandering around TechEd that have the HP unreleased h6500 Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition.
Well one of those people came by to see me today and showed off his. So a big "THANKS" for stopping by to listen to my session talk on "Using Windows Mobilie" in the Community Cabana area. He let me get a quick photo of the device. He also let me show it off during the talk and I have to say it really is a wonderful form factor. HP really went after the people that like the Blackberry size complete with its square screen format. I wanted to compare it to the Treo 650 to give you a concept of size. For me the keyboard is much easier to use than the Treo since it has better spacing but still I love the fact you have a choice of using handwriting input on the screen via Transciber. What do you think? This will be a fun one to write an article on comparing the "Best of the Breed" for converged devices. :-)
Tech Help @ TechEd
If you are here at TechEd make sure to stop by the Cabana #10 area for any help on Windows Mobile. Here are a couple of attendees at my session showing off their Windows Mobile devices. I got to help out a guy from Orlando that was having a little trouble setting up his bluetooth phone to act as his wireless modem to his Dell X50v Pocket PC. It only took a couple of minutes and now he is a happy camper.
