I have had a HP 6365 for a while now.

It doesn't have the GPS inbuilt, but does have GSM, Camera, 802.11, BT,

The camera on this unit is pretty much absolutely useless.

It locks up every now and then, but it doesn't take too long to kick it.

The bluetooth headset stuff was a real pain-in-the-arse, and holding a brick
to my head is annoying, luckily I don't have people call me often :)

The sync technology is pretty much proprietary, and you'll probably need a
Windows PC to load most of the 'other' party software on it.  The 'MS Voice
Command' stuff is neat ('Dial John Smith at Home' etc....) but extra $$$.

Personally I think the PDA thing is a bit of a crock, and I have a Newton :)
(not the Mark type)

Give it another ten years.  I'd suggest just getting the simplest phone you
can find.
