I got tired of waiting for HP’s new iPaq 6365 (also known as the 6315 in the USA) to arrive here in Australia, so I had a friend of mine pick one up on a visit through Singapore for me. The 6365 is a nice well rounded unit that includes a full quad band GSM phone, but also 802.11b wireless, and Bluetooth to boot.
It has a nice solid feel about it and a small stubby aerial sticking up on the left hand side of the body. Overall it feels good.
The biggest feature I like about this phone is the wireless control panel. It has big easy to use buttons to turn on and off the three wireless sections of the phone (GSM/802.11b/Bluetooth) making it very easy to control.
My biggest criticisms of the phone are it’s lack of speed and the actual phone portion of it seems to occassionally have bad reception – even though you are in a good reception area. Strange really.
