I have owned this PDA via my business for a couple of months now and I will soon be sending it back....
The major flaw with not just this PDA but any is that my Nokia N95 does more!! At up to 250 GBP, is it worth it??

Pro's

  • Windows mobile OS - easy to navigate and reliable(as you would expect)
  • Light and durable( dropped mine several times!)
  • If you run a windows PC the Sync system is great!
  • Very stylish, going the way of the mobiles...

Con's

  • Only 128MB of RAM means if you try and rush it, it gets slower and slower.
  • No integrated phone yet?
  • This is just one of a range (iPAQ114 - iPAQ914) and each do different things (314 is GPS, 514 is a phone etc) but as I said...my N95 will do all of the jobs for just 250 GBP!
  • If you are not running windows, very difficult to sync.
  • 3Mp camera is truly apalling and defunct.

Overall I would not recommend this PDA is the Con's far outweigh the Pro's and the price is way too high.
