It will surely appeal to the business user

from PhoneArena

Being away from the US mobile market for some time, HP definitely has one good looking Windows Mobile smartphone that gives other similar handsets a run for their money – like the Palm Treo Pro, Samsung Intrepid and HTC Snap. Throw in features like an AMOLED touchscreen, Wi-Fi, global capabilities, and a nice portrait style QWERTY and the Glisten will surely appeal to the business user. We would’ve liked to see HP work on offering a personalized look and pales in comparison to the offerings we tend to see with other manufacturers. Nonetheless, the HP iPAQ Glisten makes for a wonderful attraction to the Windows Mobile front....
