HP iPAQ Data Messenger still rocks in some ways

By Brad Mar 9 2009 19 Comments

Sure, it may not be the best darn Pocket PC phone out there (though HP may change that with newer phones later this year), but the HP iPAQ Data Messenger still has several reasons for existing iPAQ 612 or 912 owners to drop those models for this one. Even I’ve got to admit, coming from the iPAQ h6310 and hw6515/hw6915 phones, within my first DAY of using the iPAQ 612c, I thought “the iPAQ 612 sucks compared to previous HP […]

USBs, where more is better

By Brad Mar 2 2009 add comment

I think one of the most crucial factors of deciding on a notebook is the design of it. Now, I’m not talking about how visually appealing a notebook looks – many people come about their shopping decisions based on how “pretty” it looks. Unless it’s a small form factor netbook/sub-notebook device, of course; where what most people are looking for is a small and usable ‘typewriter’ for documents and some web surfing, with hours and hours of battery life.
I think […]

HP USB Hub

By Brad Feb 28 2009 add comment

Not enough USB ports on your notebook? Or wanna charge more than one device using a USB wall charger? Well, this might come in handy for some – the official HP USB hub. It houses 4 USB ports and has a single cable which plugs into any USB port. So you can plug in four times as many things into a single USB port (don’t expect super high speeds for data transfer though). The design is also quite stylish and […]

Vaio P netbook – Heaven for pickpockets?

By Brad Feb 27 2009 add comment

In other news… with the Sony Vaio P already shipping, Sony has been putting that “fits in your pants pocket” concept everywhere, including propping up a mannequin wearing a pair of Levi’s shorts with a Vaio P front plate (means it’s just the lid of the netbook and not as thin as it looks in the picture above) in the back pocket. Sure it’s nice to have a little netbook that you can bring along everywhere and quickly whip out […]

HP updated their Pavilion dv7t entertainment notebook PC today with a few new features. The notebook now features a true 16:9 widescreen LCD, which measures 17.3 inches diagonally (A tad larger than the original dv7’s 17 inch screen) but only with maximum resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels. You also get to choose between a 512 MB or 1 GB dedicated graphics card (both by ATI) and a black or silver-white design. There’s a Quad-core configuration as […]

HP Firebird 802 sharing Touchsmart’s keyboard & mouse?

By Brad Feb 26 2009 add comment

With the HP Firebird 802 feat. Voodoo DNA pre-production models, prototyp-ing and testing all in the rage over the past few days, I couldn’t help but notice HP seems to be shipping their Firebird 802 units (again, let me remind you, pre-production) with the exact same keyboard as their Touchsmart PCs. And oh, a mouse which looks eeriely identical as well. The ONLY difference is that the Firebird 802 comes with a small, flash-drive sized USB wireless receiver for the […]

Left 4 Dead maxed out on Elitebook 8730w

By Brad Feb 24 2009 add comment

BUSTED! Left 4 Dead works nicely with all settings maxed out on the HP Elitebook 8730w Mobile Workstation PC. The unit I used for testing had a T9400 2.53 GHz Intel Centrino 2 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 1 GB of graphics (Nvidia Quadro FX3700M), Windows Vista Ultimate and a lovely 17 inch Dream Color display. And the game settings were as follows:

1920 x 1200 full HD resolution, played on full screen
Film grain – Maxed out
Anti-aliasing – 16X MSAA
16X anisotropic […]

HP’s future Pocket PC phones to run Windows Mobile 6.5!!

By Brad Feb 23 2009 add comment

And it was officially confirmed last week; right from the horse’s mouth too! Now can we see some new stuff, which are more up-to-date, that will be competitive with those other manufacturers (or preferably, with absolutely kick-ass features/specifications) when they get announced?  And please don’t take months to deliver them to store shelves. And maybe we’ll see one of those Windows Mobile UI overlays/add ons…*ahem* use Touchsmart design team *ahem*
For me, even very tiny, subtle hints of future products like […]
