Cingular Offers HP iPAQ Smart Phone

Releases iPAQ h6320/h6325 with built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth as well as quad-band GSM support.
Cingular Wireless said Monday that it is now making available two updated devices from Hewlett-Packard that provides voice access in a Pocket PC PDA.

The company said it is now selling HP's iPAQ h6320 and h6325. The devices include quad-band GSM access as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support, the company said. In addition, the devices have built-in technology that can automatically switch to the fastest available network. The software can also switch to another network if the primary connection is lost, Cingular said in a statement.

Both devices sport a 3.5-inch screen and 64MB of SDRAM. The h6325 also has a built-in VGA camera.

The device is a follow-on to the h6315, which was briefly taken off the market in April by T-Mobile after users reported a variety of stability and other problems. Cingular provided no specific pricing or available information.
