HP rx5915 Travel Companion

Yesterday's announcement of the iPAQ rx4000 revealed HP turn away from a conventional PDA design to the concept of a companion device - rather than try to fulfill every need, HP is shaping its new handhelds around simple functions. A second model in the rx series, the rx5915, has surfaced today and sheds some light on both the HP strategy and features that that were previously unknown in the rx4000. The new version is dubbed the Travel Companion and includes a SiRF Star III GPS receiver for navigation. HP has expanded the features of to match: the touchscreen size has increased to 3.5 inches, and a set of physical navigation controls sits in the previously empty front space. Beyond WiFi, the rx5915 includes Bluetooth 2.0, an SD card slot, and 2GB of internal flash memory to help it accommodate both mapping and music. Its shipping date has yet to be announced, but its GPS unit helps justify a $600 retail price.
