I used to own an Ipaq 3630. I had so many problems with it that I took it back to the shop, and instead got myself a pocket loox.

Now that's impressive. The pocket loox is really thin and actually DOES fit in your pocket. Not that I recommend to use your "wallet pockets" it's useful to be able to leave it in your coat, and forget about it until you need it.

The screen's great as long as you don't have to use it outside. The screen is still readable but tends to be too reflective. Y'know as soon as you get a couple of finger marks on the screen you can't read it. I suppose they are plastic films you can put on the screen for that. It bothered me only a couple of times, I don't feel that it's a big issue, just be aware of it.

The pocket Loox uses the pocket pc 2002 operating system, which means : faster, better.

It's only very compatible with most windows ce and pocket pc application for ARM processor. Compatible ? Well, this pocket pc is one of the first to use the new Intel XScale processor, at 400 Mhz (the other pocket pcs are only at about 250 Mhz if I remember well). Then, this pocket pc is going to run twice as fast will it ?

No, unfortunately, as most application are not written for the XScale, they will run at about the same speed, HOWEVER, Microsoft is releasing the new version of the operating system, which *should* take the XScale into account. Siemens plans to release the upgrade (you just download it from the website) in September. Which means you should be able to release your pocket pc's full potential.

Apart from that, this pocket pc is brilliant ! I don't know how many connectors for different sorts of memory and extention cards they managed to fit in. (support for SD, CF and a few others I've never seen before). It supports Infrared, Bluetooth, and of course, the USB/Keyboard/Extension port at the bottom.

The cradle is quite small and does not require the pocket pc to be clipped to it. This was the cause of wear and tear of IPAQ's connections, so no problems for the Pocket Loox, which just stays loose in its cradle.

If you don't want/don't need to use a cradle (you're always on the move), the cable is cool since once folded, it will also fit in your pocket, and no, it's solid enough for you not to replace it now and again.

Basically, the pocket loox is brill as it runs most programs, is quite fast, you can entend its functions quite easily (great postable keyboard that is the size of the pocket pc, webcam, gps, etc.). And it won't break apart, which is the most important thing, really.

Battery life's great. I manage to use it at work for 10 hours in a row in meetings, by tweaking the power settings.

The speaker's not that strong, you'll need headphones. However, the microphone ain't that bad, so you can definitely use it for audio memos. It's got enough buttons for you to transform it into a dictaphone.

You buy it, it will last you for as long as you want it to last. It's not gonna break.

Great value for money !

Oh and I almost forgot : it has a great design, it looks cool without looking flashy. Y'know "professional" cool.
