ZDNet Australia have had a chance to test the iPAQ hw6500. A review is coming later but they have posted their first thoughts (good and bad). The GPS software that comes with the unit is Sensis’ Whereis Navigator. Australian buyers of the hw6500 will only receive one free month to the mapping service. After that, they will have to buy a subscription ($149 AUD for six months or $299 AUD for 14 months). Ouch!
When a PDA comes with a recommendation to get it because there’s no alternative available here yet, you know that there are more than one shortcomings.
