Monday, July 26, 2004 - T-Mobile USA, H-P to Roll Out Wi-Fi Web Phone - T-Mobile USA, H-P to Roll Out Wi-Fi Web Phone "Hewlett-Packard Co. and T-Mobile USA Inc. are expected today to unveil what they say is the first mobile device that combines Wi-Fi and wide-area cellular data technology, allowing users to browse the Web wirelessly wherever they go, using the highest speeds available. The device, which is also a wireless phone, marks Hewlett-Packard's entry into that highly competitive business.
"The whole intent is to bring the best-in-breed" of whatever connection is available, said Scott Ballantyne, vice president of business-service marketing for T-Mobile USA, a unit of Deutsche Telekom AG. The device, called the iPaq 6315, looks like a traditional iPaq -- Hewlett-Packard's line of hand-held computers -- and comes with an attachable keyboard that can be used with a user's thumbs."
