HP iPAQ Glisten Hardware Tour

Advertisement

In this video we take a look at the hardware on the HP iPAQ Glisten, which runs on the AT&T network. We find that overall, the build quality on the Glisten is solid. The traditional D-Pad and other Windows Mobile buttons allows for great one-handed usability, something that we’re not used to seeing on newer Windows Phones.

The keyboard, while identical in design to the Motorola Q9h (just about), has buttons that don’t “click” as much. Whether this is a good or bad thing is still to be determined.

Although the screen is only QVGA resolution, items on the screen appear generally crisp, and the use of AMOLED means that blacks are super black, and that white text really stands out.

In case you missed it, check out our other Glisten coverage.
