We know the h4000 series is coming, HP told us so a few weeks back at CeBit America. Last night at the TechXNY show they were hush hush, but that was before this picture was made available.
Pocket PC Italia has poted this image along with specs that are inline with what’s been reported here and elsewhere over the past few months. Here’s what the h4350, as PPC Italia calls it, will feature:
|Operating System:||Windows Mobile 2003|
|Dimensions:||138.7 x 74.6 x 14.5 mm|
|Processor:||Intel XScale 400MHz|
|Wireless:||WiFi and Bluetooth|
|Memory:||64MB RAM, 32MB ROM|
|Expansion Slot:||Secure Digital (I/O)|
|Battery Type:||Lithium Ion 1560mAh (removable)|
|Audio Out:||Speaker, stereo headphone jack|
|Audio In:||Integrated microphone|
|Display:||TFT, 65,000 colors|
|Resolution:||240 x 320 pixels|
|Viewable Image:||3.5″ diagonal|
|Other Hardware:||USB cradle|
Release is scheduled for this fall, so we should see information leaking from the FCC in the near future. While this image may be wrong, I suspect it to be quite accurate as it is consistent with much of the information that has been leaked to us. While no pricing information has been spoken, I would assume, based on HP’s past, that we’ll see something in the $600 range.
