SAN JOSE, Calif., July 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Synaptics(R)
Incorporated (Nasdaq: SYNA), a leading developer of interface solutions for
mobile computing, communications, and entertainment devices, has developed a
new touchpad interface solution for the HP iPAQ hx4700 Pocket PC.

replacing button functionality, the NavPoint also offers unique navigation
controls, including short and long distance scrolling features, tapping, and
mouse-like cursor navigation.
