The best HP phones: We round-up the top HP smartphones that run Palm's WebOS

HP is not well known for producing smartphones, but the company acquired struggling Palm for US$1.2 billion in July 2010, and has since promised a suited of webOS-powered products. The Palm-developed webOS operating system powered the Palm Pre smartphone; a product that sadly never made it to Australian shores. HP aims to join an ever-crowded market with its latest smartphones.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
