Ugly! 8O

It must be a fake. Hp would never release something that looks that bad.

Now if this was the size of a 22xx without the keyboard then I'd jump on fast than you could say GSM!

It might well be a fake (it's the 'shadows' of buttons on each side that make me wonder) but in terms of looks I'm reminded of comments about the 221x when pictures first appeared - many said it looked ugly and then changed their minds on seeing it in person...

OF course its a fake - but possibly a mock up from something seen and restricked to NDA. Take a look at the keybored extruded grooves... they dont even match - it looks too 3-dimensional. There are too many rough edges, and the keyboard part looks to be raised from the unit itself.

Horrible PS skills. Looks like a fat ugly Treo600. (which is nicer)

My understanding was that device was based on the 22xx series footprint. So it might not be as bad as everyone thinks.

64MB/64MB assumes Microsoft will not increase the requirements of the next 2 OS revisions, which is an obviously fantasy and not supported by M$'s past performance. So it needs more memory. Also the cost for licensing and integrating the RIM radio technology, etc makes the stated price too low. $850 would be more realistic (it probably just won't move at that price.)

If this is a mock-up and not just a fake, without the keyboard, the footprint could be very similar to the 2200.

While I agree that 64MB RAM is too little I will say with absolute confidence that WM2004 will fit in less than 32MB ROM and will work just fine in devices with 64MB RAM. As for the next OS after that - no current or upcoming device is going to be guaranteed upgradeable to that...!
