A Very Remarkable PDA

AdvantagesFeatures and functions, operational speed, compact

DisadvantagesNone

"...site, I settled for a Compaq iPAQ H3630 Pocket PC. The cost was STG.320.00 which many may find expensive. This pocket PC is amazing. It has 16 MB of ROM, which holds the Win CE operating system. It has 32 MB of RAM, which is for your data storage and any other programs you might want to install. It is very lightweight and compact and weighs just 6 ounces. A very important feature is that you can allocate how much of the 32MB you want for your ..." Read review

My best friend, or maybe not

AdvantagesSynchronisation with MS Office, very clear screen

DisadvantagesData input too fiddly, difficult to use in a hurry

"I’ve owned an iPAQ for three months now and would like to offer some thoughts on it after using it pretty extensively during that period. Some of what I say will be applicable to all PDAs, and some only to the iPAQ. I start the review by describing the iPAQ then offer some thoughts about PDAs in general. The best features of the iPAQ in my view are the screen, and the connectivity. The colour screen is just beautiful. It is very high definition, ..." Read review

IPAQ SchmIPAQ

Advantagesbig enough too see off a serious mugger

Disadvantagesheavy enough to prevent escape from a serious mugger

"...a Palm V and a Compaq IPAQ 3850. I am crying quietly. Why? Because having been quite content with my Palm V for several years I recently convinced myself that I needed an IPAQ. What a prat. To exacerbate matters, I didn't just settle for a basic unit. Oh no, I had to go the whole hog and get the SatNav jacket and all the full nine yards didn't I? After a brief (and I MEAN brief) honeymoon with the thing I have come to the conclusion that the IPAQ ..." Read review

The IPAQ Exposed - Updated

AdvantagesData Connection with Orange

Disadvantagesprice tag

"The Compaq IPAQ See my reviews under the PALM III, The PALM IIIc, The Aero, and Jornada for comparisons. I have used my IPAQ now for about six months and I am very impressed. It is fast and easy to use and looks absolutely great, I can do everything that I need to do and more and best of all is the ooooohs and aaaaahhhhs from my very jealous friends ;-)) I have the 3630 but I am looking to upgrade to the 3660 and my man in the know from compaq ..."

Does Exactly What It Says On The Tin

AdvantagesSize, Functionality, Opperating System

DisadvantagesPrice

""The Compaq Pocket PC 3870" Theres something in there that gives you a clue as to what it is. Can you guess which bit? Yup, thats right, "pocket PC". There have been many PDA's (Personal Digital Assistant) over the last few years that have claimed to be "pocket PC's", but few could really live up to the expectation that the name gives. First off was the Psion series. These had a full "QWERTY" keyboard, a touch sensitive screen, and minimal sound ..." Read review

Good but troublesome

AdvantagesQuick, easy to use, easy sync of Microsoft programs

DisadvantagesNo support for non-Microsoft software, crashing, battery life, user manual... what manual

"The reps where I work all have laptop pc's so that they can write letters, e-mail and run a central contact database. They were always complaining that they were too large, took too long to boot-up and were not practical to use when visiting customers. The older PDA's weren't up to doing what was required since they were slow and had limited memory. Times have changed, so my company decided to get them all iPAQ's to run alongside their laptops. I ..." Read review

The best Christmas present I ever bought myself

AdvantagesFast, sleek, expandable, runs Windows, lots of third party support

DisadvantagesDifficult to get accesories in UK, bit pricey, shame it's not 64MB

" I love gadgets! And this is my new favourite! Although I had a few problems finding out how to do things, now I’ve got the hang of it I cannot find fault with the iPAQ. I have a Nokia 6210 mobile phone, which means I can connect to the Internet with my iPAQ at 28.8k. The iPAQ has a copy of Internet Explorer, which means I could use Yahoo the other day in a hotel in Scotland to look for local distilleries to visit. It’s smooth ..." Read review

The iPaq 6 months on

AdvantagesLooks, TFT screen, ARM power,

DisadvantagesBattery life, software limitations

"...Palm V and bought the Compaq iPaq 32Mb. I wanted more memory space and I liked its looks, feel and potential. I have now been using for 6 months and can report the following pros and cons. The iPaq is first of all a substantial investment but at the time was the best around so I took the plunge. The feedback I get from colleagues with Casio and HP Pocket PCs has backed up this opinion so far. It's high resolution colour screen makes using it as ..." Read review

Amazing little toy

AdvantagesPortable and sleek, value for money

DisadvantagesNot many pocket applications to choose from

"Well to say the Compaq ipac is a toy is an understatement. The ipac is actually a pc with mobility which fits into your pocket. Standard applications include pocket word, pocket excel, email, windows media player to play mp3 songs, electronic books, and what's more, games. Two games are available, solitaire and office chaos. Of course, you can download other pda compatible games like Quake, which actually runs. But the disadvantage is the controls ..." Read review

Go for grey

AdvantagesBattery life, battery life, and um... battery life

DisadvantagesLess memory than 3630, not colour (is that really so bad?)

"...three reasons why buying the Compaq iPAQ 3130 was the right decision to make - the battery life, the battery life and the battery life. Forget about the fact that the monochrome screen is more easily visible in varying light than the colour model, or that it weighs slightly less than the colour version, this thing just keeps going. It's like the energiser bunny but useful. Is there a drawback to having the 3130? Yes. The 3130 is fitted with ..." Read review

iPAQ PocketPC Now goes 2002

AdvantagesCompact, Great Screen

DisadvantagesNot enough memory, No CF Slot

"I bought this about a month ago and it keeps me organised at home and work. Integration into outlook and the ability to read word documents helps me so I can catch up on emails when things get busy at work. A lot of additional software can also be downloaded from the Internet and installed onto the iPAQ via your PC. I use www.pocketgear.com to look for games etc. There are two areas that you need to get used to on this device. Firstly the handwriting ..." Read review

An entertainment unit in the palm of your hand

Advantagesversatile, great colors

Disadvantagesrelatively expensive, sometimes slow

"I switched from Palm to Compaq Ipaq and the differences are stunning. It is actually completely useless to compare the two, so I won't even try. I have had my Ipaq 3850 now for about 6 months and I am still amazed at what is possible with this unit: apart from the standard contact and time management, I listen to MP3's, watch short video clips, stored my family foto album for easy sharing with friends,surf the internet via my infra-red connection ..."
