Remember when details about the HP iPAQ K3 ‘Obsidian’ first came out precisely two months ago? Well, apparently someone got their hands on an ACTUAL iPAQ K3 with AT&T branding (instead of the computer-rendered images we first saw) and now pictures, like the one you see above, are flying around the net like crazy. Ignore the old details in the post in May, and check out the latest details over here – it’s now clearer that the iPAQ K3 will succeed the old iPAQ 900 Business Messenger, with the main changes being a swap from a touchscreen LCD to a new OLED touchscreen on the K3 (though the 2.46 inch diagonal still remains), upgrade to a 528 MHz processor, two separate ports for micro USB and 3.5 mm headphone jack respectively (replaces the yucky, old combo mini USB port) and of course, it’ll be HP’s first iPAQ to feature Windows Mobile 6.5. The iPAQ K3 will also feature a new, classier design, which looks like a gazillion times better than the all-gloss black plastic design of the old iPAQ 900.
In other areas, the iPAQ K3 will have WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, a microSD expansion slot, 3.2 megapixel camera – things you’d expect in a typical business-oriented Pocket PC device. It’ll also have 256 MB RAM and 512 MB ROM, but strangely, there’s no mention of HP’s own ‘Windows Mobile interface’… maybe later as K3′s release in November approaches.
