HP iPAQ 910 retail box
HP used to have the greatest Pocket PC devices, but it has been a while since they had some high quality devices. The new HP iPAQ 910 Business Messenger is the new high end device that packs all the wireless features you want in a form factor similar to a BlackBerry Curve and Motorola Q9.
HP has some great new packaging and did a good job of keeping the box for the 910 compact and attractive.
Inside flap of the retail box
The inside cover of the iPAQ 910 box clearly shows what all the buttons are for in three different languages.
Cables and adapters
There are two ways to charge the device included with this evaluation package, a standard travel adapter and a USB to A/C adapter dongle.
HP carrying case
The leather carrying case came with my evaluation unit, but is an additional accessory not included in the retail package.
1940 mAh battery
HP includes a whopping 1940 mAh battery with the iPAQ 910. I think this is the largest standard battery I have seen in a mobile phone and will have to test to see how long it lasts with a 3G connection.
Back of the iPAQ 910
As you can see the battery takes up a large area of the back of the device. The SIM card fits down towards the bottom under the battery.
Removed back cover
The back cover has a soft touch feel and as you can see in this photo the stylus is actually mounted to the battery cover and not inside the device casing.
3 megapixel camera
The HP iPAQ 910 includes a 3 megapixel camera with flash and self-portrait mirror.
Diamond, iPAQ, and iPhone
This shot of three touch screen devices shows how different they can be when it comes to form factor. The Diamond is very small and compact, the iPAQ 910 is large with an integrated QWERTY keyboard, and the iPhone is all touch with a larger display.
iPAQ 910 and Blackjack II
Here is a comparison of touch screen and non-touch screen Windows Mobile 6.1 devices with QWERTY keyboards.
HP iPAQ 910 in hand
The device fits well in your hand, but does feel a bit thick compared to some of the latest and greatest devices. It is very solid and has a classy look.
HP iPAQ 910
The HP iPAQ 910 is an attractive entry in the QWERTY keyboard devices.

The keyboard has a glossy black finish and the keys are interesting with a half-cylinder type of form factor. The backlight is bright and every character is easy to distinguish.
HP iPAQ 910 hardware buttons
The traditional soft keys, send and end buttons, and OK and Start menu appear along with a calendar and email button above the keyboard.
HP logo and indicator light
There is an integrated speaker above the HP icon and the indicator light is to the left of the logo to let you know the status of your device.
Bottom right side of the 910
You can see the stylus silo close to the camera button on the bottom right side of the device. The stylus is actually quite long and feels great in your hand.
Upper right side of the 910
I was pleasantly surprised to see an actual scroll wheel on the upper right side of the iPAQ 910. An OK button can be found below the scroll wheel.
Top left side of the 910
The volume control button is located on the upper left side with the Voice Command activation button below it.
Bottom left of the 910
There are covers for the microSD card slot and miniUSB port on the bottom left side. There is no standard headset jack on the iPAQ 910, but you get an HP wired headset in the box that connects to the miniUSB port.
Top of the iPAQ 910
The power button and soft reset button are located along the top. There is also a covered connection port for an external GPS antenna.
Bottom of the iPAQ 910
There is nothing along the bottom of the 910. There is hard plastic covering around the device with soft touch on the back and glossy black on the front.
