CNET iPAQ hw6515 review verdict: Good but not great

iPAQ hw6500

The HP iPAQ hw6515 did not fare too well in CNET’s review. It’s overall score is a 6.3 out of 10. It scored a 6 for design, a 7 for features and a 6 for performance.

On the positive side,CNET liked the many features it packs (EDGE, QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth, GPS, camera) as well as a much improved form factor over the older h6300. They also rated the battery life as good.

On the negative side, it performs poorly when a number of applications are running simultaneously and it lacks both Windows Mobile 5.0 and integrated Wi-Fi.

Hopefully the upcoming hw6700 will address all of the negatives without losing any of the positives.
