HP’s Next Handheld May Include 1 GB of Storage

When HP first took the wraps off the iPAQ rx4000 Mobile Media Companion just a few days ago, it declined to reveal very many details of this model. However, Yahoo! was able to learn more about it.

Unfortunately, the source of this information is based in Hong Kong, so the description of this upcoming handheld is in Chinese. Still, it’s possible to glean some details from it that weren’t previously available.

Reportedly, the rx4000 will use a 400 MHz processor from Samsung. It will have 64 MB or RAM and 128 MB of ROM.

What many will find most interesting about this new information is a reference to 1 GB of ROM. It seems virtually certain at this point that at least one version of the rx4000 will offer this much internal storage.

This upcoming handheld will have a 2.8-inch screen, which Yahoo! is reporting will have a 240-by-320-pixel (QVGA) resolution.

In addition, this iPAQ will have two forms of short-range wireless networking: Wi-Fi b/g and Bluetooth 2.0.

As its name suggests, the iPAQ rx4000 Mobile Media Companion will be focused on multimedia. Naturally, this handheld will come with the mobile version of Windows Media Player, which can handle both music and video. 

It will run Windows Mobile 5 and come with a suite of productivity applications, like Microsoft Office Mobile, a web browser, and an email application.

HP plans to introduce this handheld some time next month. Prices will start at $299.
