ProGreat build quality. good range of accesories

ConsBattery life not great and battery built into unit

I have had my ipaq since early august. The pda has proved to be reliable and very useful. I use it on a daily basis and have yet to find any real problems. The ipaq has one of the best screens of any pda and has 64mb of memory. You get pocket pc versions of most of the usual microsoft programs...

ProA pc in the pocket

Consscreen difficult to see in bright sunshine

I was loooking for a satellite navigation system a couple of years ago so that I would not need to carry a lot of maps with me at work (country wide delivery driver at the time) & the way to go seemed to be a pocket pc with the 'plug in' extras.

My main use for the PDA is as a portable PC, laptops aren't all that easy to carry around and just not as easy as putting a PDA in your pocket or clipping it onto your belt. The iPaq is a good all round PDA, it has all the software you need and any extra software is easily found and simply...
