HP introducing the iPAQ 300 series, a GPS device that can also act as a media player. HP’s Alan Stokol, an iPAQ product manager showed us some of the 300 series features. Check out the video below.
The iPAQ 300 is based on Windows CE 5.0, with a custom user interface, designed designed specifically for travel. The iPAQ 300 replaces the iPAQ rx5900, which was a full on Windows Mobile device, but was difficult to use while driving.
The iPAQ 300 has a 4.3-inch WVGA touchscreen display (800×480 pixels), up to 2GB of memory and weighs in at 6.6 ounces. The iPAQ 300 can sync with your bluetooth enabled phone to serve as a hands-free speakerphone.
The first model in the iPAQ 300 series will be the iPAQ 310. It will be available in Q4 of this year and cost between $399 and $449.
