HP iPAQ Pocket PC hx2190

HP has upgraded its iPAQ hx2000 series with the newly available HP hx2190 iPAQ. Powered by Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system, the hx2190 provides for strong data and device security.

Short Spec:
OPERATING SYSTEM : Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 Premium
Installed RAM: 64 MB
Processor: Intel 312 MHzXscale
Wireless connectivity: IrDA, Bluetooth
Input device type: Stylus, Touch-screen, 5-way navigation button


CONNECTIVITY
It sports Bluetooth and Infrared connectivities, which is a good thing.


SCREEN
The display is a 3.5" TFT with 64k colors which makes the screen as sharp and clear as I have seen able to display near picture qualty images.

SAFETY
Ever spent a lng time working on a project only to find that disaster strikes and it is lost lost data, no longer a problem - of the 128 MB ROM, 80 MB is user persistent storage, so this really comes in handy as it prevents loss of data, settings and installed applications, even when the battery is removed or drained.

ENTERTAINMENT
For those seeking entertainment from the HP hx2190, Window Media Player 10 is available, and you can transfer anyof your files from your Windows PC. The 64 MB of RAM gives it ample amount of memory for running your applications and a couple of games if you wish so you can switch back to your e-mail if your boss sits next to you on the train!!

HOW IS THIS GOING TO HELP ME
I have found that I can now make short work of your tasks and gain fast access to contacts, diaries and documents.
The ability to file sharing and particularly printing between personal devices and peripherals using integrated Bluetooth technology is so simple that it is done at the press of a button or slip of a pen. The unit has a Integrated microphone to allow dictation/ memory joggers.

EXPANSION
SD Slot allows easy transfer of data

MANUAL
The manual is easy to follow although lengthy and the accompanying software cd easy to install. Anyone with any basic computer knowledge should be able to set up and use without much reference to the manual but some of the finer points will require some reference.


IN THE BOX
Removable/rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery, AC adapter, charger adapter, stylus, protective plastic flip cover, USB synchronisation cable (horray a USB CABLE for once you wont have to go out and buy one!!!! ), HP iPAQ Product Information Guide and Getting Started Guide


A good idea is to buy the additional keyboard if ou intend to do any sort of typing as this will easy many frustrations!!

    Very helpful review. My old filofax has just about fallen apart so think it may be time to update to a PDA.
