Hello, dear Ciao community
Today, I would like to venture me into the technical category again and it is, report of my new little work device, a PDA (personal Diary assistant) of the manufacturer HP.
? What?s that? ?
A PDA is one almost can make everything like with a big computer to one of little minicomputers with this, a PDA mainly is used as an an address book, a calendar or an appointment planner. The address function is in my case primarily in the foreground, to this but late more. He of course one can make with such a thing still much more than only the above one, one can listen to music or videos look and play even games this one gives it for Windows, there is for this PDA also since a Windows Mini also has operating system, most programs.
This PDA has a big color display and also has loudspeakers, nothing therefore is in the way for it at a multi-media use. One knows it either with the buttons or with the enclosed pin, the operation is really very simple use. A PDA one could a little all-rounder say, a pure demon it is too smally then the storage, too, unless one wants to play the latest 3D Shooter that computer takes second place to a normal one actually into hardly anything and the performance of the graphics card too badly, so is seen real and I also need it only for it work.
? For what you need it? ?
I work for a company and my boss is a lot away and has many contacts also, he has a rather thick address book with over 1000 entries because of this since it gets confused and threatens to burst also so slowly I had the idea with a PDA which he can take along everywhere and on which enough numbers and addresses also match? So this PDA was bought primarily because of its fast processor, its big loft and its clear and big display that must be readable very well just for the drive. So I have this device now approximately one month and I have to do every day with it, what primarily quite beautifully lasts for the facilities of the whole address long, therefore can I report about this device also quite well.
Of course this PDA serves as a matter of priority as an address book seen so but the calendar function and the appointment planner also aren't kept busy I have let also the other functions of this device take it to find out. One quite extensive equipment which one can enlarge actually as often and much one wants, be with programs or games or in my case addresses the loft has to be taken therefore greatly enough.
? first steps ?
A short printing on the small power-on key suffices this PDA on the right above around, it is immediately operational after which, too start and one knows this like us of Windows is therefore dropped to switch on. This Pocket Windows appears now, which actually looks like the normal Windows XP at first sight, when first, do I have this PDA adjusted, of course once the right time and the date but the information has a password allocated to protect around the PDA over the owner me too. This PDA is protected over a fingerprint and therefore has to be cracked by no means but only later since I also must work with it in any case a fine is the fingerprint and she has a safe thing like me never seen at such a device, however, late if my boss works with that. One can use the enclosed pin enter around addresses or operate the PDA generally, this one on the top side of the PDA is s with a small printing on this pin he jumps out of his mount and one can use it.
At the address petition one has a numbers and letter country at the underside of the screen with also all possible special signs, letter to use around one one only must select them, this control is very requiring habituation, goes, however, without problems after a while. Of course one can write correctly also with the pin, I have it has already tried this fast let again, however, since I have such a sow claw and the device recognizes hardly any of my words, too, this function is surely a fine thing for a letter quality.
? practice ?
I have this device already a month now and use it every day one to 2 hours and I can only say: although I would never need such a device it is an absolute informer part, this anyway what the heart desires has everything. At the beginning I had considerable problems with the control over this little black pin but I then had it out, too and the operation was going on like clockwork after a couple of days. This should calibrate this pin at the beginning primarily correctly so that it is very exact also in use one can work in the system control, one goes almost like at the normal Windows if one wants to establish a Gamepad. All functions of this device like the calendar or the writing program are very simply and with some within reach clicks, one can use even the desktop as in the case of the normal Windows and also establish different background motives, a fine thing but only a pastime.
This PDA already has a couple of games on this, like a deck of cards and a game similar to Tetris for in between times, this, too, I surely don't shine, its graphic, however, is quite beautifully much fun for a short time. No problem of course one also can call e-mails with this device, a connection to the Internet is with the built-in WLAN if one has a WLAN router at all and one also can therefore easily and fast synchronize his data with a computer or a notebook computer. The function variety of this PDA s is really fantastic, one can make so many things with that and enlarge it again and again, too, the loft is sufficient and fast the processor also calculates pleasantly?. One can play or use all kinds of file with that and one knows also such programs like ICQ or the Acrobat Reader on this install himself, one never gets for certain bored with this device.
One has a small survey of the most important functions of the PDA on the upper edge?the display and s one also sees at once the registered user, one must call the menu over the button for all other things on the left below that is just like at the good old Windows. The accumulator performance also is very considerably, if one considers that this device has such a big color display, the accumulator keeps 10 hours around which and we still have extra bought a car battery charger with that my boss doesn't get any problems on the journey. Of course the device has unite lithium ions accumulator without the angry Memory effect. Dealing with this device already is seen altogether easily anyway even if one needs umzugewöhnen around himself at the beginning a bit, one can make so much with this PDA and up till now he has all tasks without problems and I never had a fall, too, solved fast, what speaks for this mobile windows.

? the price ?
This device have I bought in the Mediamarkt and 799 euros would usually have cost it, since, however, this device was a projector cost it 749 euros only, an impressive price for this device, it, however, is also the top class and lifts considerably of its competitors out.
? my opinion ?
I am more than satisfied with this device and my boss is quite enthusiastic even if he still has difficulties with the operation a little. This device offers can one have this one for a very impressive price, all luxury at a PDA. Absolutely brilliantly I find the Geräteschutz over the fingerprint, is giving not, also W Lan something sure well at the moment and Firewire isn't a problem with this device at all and therefore one can connect it with another equipment fast. The processor is well one of the fastest at the moment which there is in the area of PDA on the market to buy and the working memory also is with its 128 MB more than sufficing, also this one is Rome with 48 MB very luxuriantly.
The operation has very simply and very fast to be learned, it is very precise for the Pen and is in her hand incredibly. The display is very sharp and colorful and brings his contents over crystal-clearly, of course one can adjust it also user-definedly what concerns the contrast and the brightness. The PDA lies see well in the hand, is, however, neither too big nor too heavy, with the four buttons at the untern part of the device one has in a matter of seconds arrived at the most important programs like the e-mail program or the address book and one also can exit programs fast with the task manager. Does a top equipment in this area of a very good manufacturer who doesn't pay attention to every cent and looks for a PDA of the top class, this one should grasp it here what the heart desires? I therefore allocate all 5 stars here and of course express a recommendation.
Please take consideration at the assessment because I come from Germany, many thanks!
