The wireless device features quad-band GSM and GPRS phone network support, with EDGE for higher data transfer rates. The unit also supports Bluetooth 1.2. There's no Wi-Fi, but the device does feature an integrated GPS receiver, the website's specification confirms.

The 6515 has a 3in, 320 x 240, 65536-colour display, and a 1.3 megapixel camera built in. HP is branding the camera Photosmart to tie the unit in to its range of digital cameras.

The handheld weighs 165g and measures 11.8 x 7.1 x 2.1cm, so it's slightly larger than the Treo 650. The battery is a 1200mAh removable job.

HP Singapore is asking SGD1347 for the product - around $804 or £441, though the US and UK prices are likely to be different. ®
