The long-awaited iPAQ 910 Wi-Fi-enabled smartphone from HP may be shipping soon.

Last fall, HP introduced several new smartphone models, seemingly announcing it was ready to take the handheld business seriously once again. Problem is a couple of these devices didn't ship last year, as expected. Instead those new iPAQs, including a high-end smartphone, the iPAQ 910, were delayed until an unspecified date in 2008.

That day may arrive sooner than later, if a recent appearance by the iPAQ 900 series on the the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Web site is any indication. It is significant because all devices slated to use American airwaves must receive a thumbs up from the FCC before shipping here.

The FCC site includes several images of the smartphone as well as its manual. As you'd expect the government agency doesn't indicate when this iPAQ model, which had been rumored for AT&T, may finally ship here.

The iPAQ 910 is quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE phone with support for tri-band UMTS/HSDPA 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi with support for VoIP, and Assisted GPS. It's also got a QWERTY thumb-keyboard and a 2.46-inch, 240 x 320 pixel (QVGA) resolution touch screen.

There's a 3 megapixel camera with auto focus and 4x zoom and a microSD slot.

Inside the iPAQ 910 you'll find a 520MHz Marvell PXA270 processor, 128MB of RAM, 256MB of ROM, and a 1840 mAH Lithium Ion battery.

The smartphone measures 4.45 x 2.53 x 0.63 inches (113 x 64 x 16 millimeters) and weighs 5.15 ounces (146 grams).
