HP hasn't done much in the smartphone market to date. In 2008, they came out with three devices, the iPAQ 910, the Data Messenger and the Voice Messenger, none of which were successful. These devices, while good for the mobile professional, didn't really have a mass market appeal. Well HP is back, this time with yet another device aimed at the business user. The iPAQ Glisten (interesting name for a business device, we know) runs on the AT&T network and has a BlackBerry-like form factor. Is this the device the one to help you be more productive? Read on to find out!
