HP has unveiled a spanking new handheld GPS navigation unit that looks extremely good. The iPAQ rx5000 Travel Companion fits into your palm comfortable, boasting a 3.5″ anti-glare touchscreen LCD display and is powered by the SiRFStar III GPS chipset. Additional features include integrated WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity.
There is a marketing terra incognito between Phone/PDAs and ultraportable notebooks into which exploratory forays seem to disappear forever: it is the form factor of no return, better known as “UMPC with a keyboard”. The HTC Athena X7500 hopes to conquer this undiscovered country and become its King.
