Ok handheld but poor in when compared to many others.
20 June 2010
Excerpt: I got this handheld second hand and having upgrading from a Palm m505 to an HP Ipaq rx3715 and now to the HP 214. I was expecting a lot. What I received can only be described as a sub-stranded piece of junk. The main faults this with handheld are as follows: 1.
Summary: The HP214 is the same kit as the HP210 in the US - its screen is large, detailed, clear, bright and colourful. There is a slight stand-off outer screen that means you need to press firmly to get a response from the stylus, this is relative to earlier iPAQ models that have sensitive screens, but the...
Excerpt: I kind a like this PDA. First of all I have Ipaq 514 phone and beside it I had Ipaq rx3715. In rx3715 the seems like something is not right, it was slow and had medium screen 320*240 etc. So I tried to make these Phone and PDA together and I got HTC TyTn...
IPAQ 214 - Good product let down by poor reliability
18 April 2009
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: How disappointing. I had the same experience as another reviewer, Elizabeth. 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.
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: This is a really bad product. I switched from my old iPAQ hx4700, a great machine, to this slowed down and unreliable downgrade. The stylus is impossible to align accurately if near the border of, say, the scroll bar and the virtual keyboard, which is where it has to be when scrolling down a list of...
Excerpt: You won't find a better PDA even at higher price ranges!! SUPERB 4 inch screen, CPU power that other PDAs only dream of (624MHz), THE BEST battery capacity (2200mAh) none of the rest have such big batteries and of course VGA resolution which makes things even sharper on the screen.
Excerpt: The HP iPaq 214 offers a large 4 inch transflective touch screen supporting a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels with 65 thousand colours and a LED background. It comes with a long metal stylus stored int the body of the PDA on the top so it is in a easy to access location.
Pros: Large screen, Fast processer, good character recogntion
Cons: Large, heavy, does not support phone calls out of the box .
