“A PC That Fits In Your Hand!”

ConsSmall Main Memory

The HP iPAQ 214 Enterprise Handheld is an advanced piece of kit which you can comfortably take with you anywhere you go, almost like a mini laptop! It actually runs on a 624MHz processor, I remember my first ever PC which was 133MHz, that really does put things in perspective. The design is very...

“HP iPaq Enterprise Handheld”

published 30/01/2008

ProEasy to use.

ConsNone yet. Will update.

I have just joined Ciao community to put the record straight on this PDA. A previous Ciao reviewer has given a negative review. I have only owned the PDA (HP iPaq 214 Enterprise Handheld) for two days. I believe I was one of the first in the UK to receive this machine as it became available from...

I got the HP214 after my Hx4700 fell apart. It is working great. I agree with the previous reviewer. Basically, if you want a tiny screened phone, buy one! if you want something that works well with MS Office, plays films on a decent sized screen, has a multiple of ports, can use Skype and is very fast, this is the one for you. Pros: Base on HP 214 and HX4700 the build quality is much better. The battery life is longer (2200 mAh compared to 1800 mAh). WM6 saves Office documents as Ofice documents- no conversion needed. Cons: Doesn't come with any backup software, so buy some with your free points.

I received the iPAQ 214 Enterprise last week. I have to say that as a seasoned PDA user, this is the real deal. It has a large clear screen making it easier to view apps, read and write emails and even play games. Like other iPAQ models it comes with both SD and CF card expansion possibilities, making it possible to add even programs. The larger screen probably does effect the battery life which when fully charged lasts me around 4 hours. It's a great device for those who want to keep a PDA seperate from a mobile. Unlike the 1st review mentioned, there is no camera. It is a good PDA and a great business tool. A worthy release by HP.

Good size screen with excellent handwriting recognition. Battery life is reasonable if battery save features are on. Works well with ActiveSync. Using and editing documents in Word is easy with clear navigation to and from all documents. No problems with wireless connectivity. Bluetooth seems a bit footery and it is a little slow sometimes to start - a few seconds slower than instant. Only downside here is the price! (depends on where you buy it). I love mine!

Overall I am impressed with this iPAQ. There is one thing I am not certain about however, maybe it is specific to my one. The touch screen needs to be pressed hard by the stylus in some parts before it responds. Previously I had a Dell Axim, and the Axim screen was very responsive to the slightest touch. I am wondering if anyone else noticed this or have I purchased a faulty unit? Also response seems slower than I would expect at times.

A great disappointment. After a few weeks I could no longer connect to the charger unit through the 24 pin connector on the base of the IPAQ. HP "service" say I have made a mistake and want to charge me over £100 to repair the unit. They are not listening to customers who know there is a genuine...
