FCC posts GSM, Wi-Fi iPaq specs

Details confirmed


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. ®

  • Lunar rocks brought to Earth by China's Chang'e 5 show Moon's volcanoes were recently* active

    * Just a couple of billion years

    The Moon remained volcanically active much later than previously thought, judging from fragments of rocks dating back two billion years that were collected by China's Chang’e 5 spacecraft.

    The Middle Kingdom's space agency obtained about 1.72 kilograms (3.8 pounds) of lunar material from its probe that returned to Earth from the Moon in December. These samples gave scientists their first chance to get their hands on fresh Moon material in the 40 years since the Soviet Union's Luna 24 mission brought 170 grams (six ounces) of regolith to our home world in 1976.

    The 47 shards of basalt rocks retrieved by Chang'e 5 were estimated to be around two billion years old using radiometric dating techniques. The relatively young age means that the Moon was still volcanically active up to 900 million years later than previous estimates, according to a team of researchers led by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).

  • Centre for Computing History apologises to customers for 'embarrassing' breach

    Website patched following phishing scam, no financial data exposed

    The Centre for Computing History (CCH) in Cambridge, England, has apologised for an "embarrassing" breach in its online customer datafile, though thankfully no payment card information was exposed.

    The museum for computers and video games said it was notified that a unique email address used to book tickets via its website "has subsequently received a phishing email that looked like it came from HSBC."

    "Our investigation has revealed that our online customer datafile has been compromised and the email addresses contained within are now in the hands of spammers," says the letter to visitors from Jason Fitzpatrick, CEO and trustee at CCH dated 19 October.

  • Ancient with a dash of modern: We joined the Royal Navy to find there's little new in naval navigation

    Following the Fleet Navigating Officers' course

    Boatnotes II The art of not driving your warship into the coast or the seabed is a curious blend of the ancient and the very modern, as The Reg discovered while observing the Royal Navy's Fleet Navigating Officers' (FNO) course.

    Held aboard HMS Severn, "sea week" of the FNO course involves taking students fresh from classroom training and putting them on the bridge of a real live ship – and then watching them navigate through progressively harder real-life challenges.

    "It's about finding where the students' capacity limit is," FNO instructor Lieutenant Commander Mark Raeburn told The Register. Safety comes first: the Navy isn't interested in having navigators who can't keep up with the pressures and volume of information during pilotage close to shore – or near enemy minefields.
