Full details of HP's iPaq h6300 PocketPC phone have been posted on the Federal Communications Commission's web site.

The specs listed in the provisional user manual, submitted to the FCC for approval, pretty much match those that leaked last February to Australian website M-Tekk.

HP iPaq h6300The Texas Instruments OMAP 1510-based PDA will feature a quad-band GSM/GPRS connectivity, along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and infra-red. There's the usual 240 x 320 3.5in transflective LCD display, and there's a 640 x 480 digicam on the back, though it won't present on all models in the 6300 series: the 6315 has it, the 6310 doesn't, according to previous reports.

However, all of them will run Windows Moble 2003 for PocketPC - Phone Edition. At this stage it's not clear if it will be the OS's Second Edition, but this seems likely.

Each 6300 will weigh 190g and measure 11.9 x 7.5 x 1.9cm. Inside sits 64MB of RAM, 64MB of Flash ROM and up to 20MB of iPaq File Store capacity. There's an SD IO/MMC slot for expansion, and the whole thing is powered by an 1800mAh removable rechargeable battery.

Incidentally, the documents are listed under the FCC ID FCC ID GKRP5TH6300. That, notes M-Tekk, signifies the machine's ODM as Compal - revealed by the three letters, GKR - and not HTC, as some observers have suggested in the past. HTC was in the running since it produces the XDA series of PocketPC phones for European mobile network O2. The same device is offered by Orange under the SPV M1000 brand. ®
