Summary: I recently got my hands on an ipaq and was really impressed by the power. Model H3630 come with 32 MB of memory, which is quite a bit to begin with. The size and wait was really nice, not too heavy and not too wide. When powering on the screen was really nice and clear unlike other pda and the contract and light control was really cool because it gave you the best image all the time. I then went and try some software (freeware stuff) and I was blown away with the games.
Summary: Key Features: 240x320 touch-sensitive colour LCD, 206MHz 32-Bit Intel StrongARM processor, 32Mb RAM (expandable via Compact Flash), 16Mb ROM, Microsoft Windows for Pocket PC, handwriting recognition (with predictive text), voice memo, IR port, USB connection/docking cradle, Software: Pocket Word, Excel, Outlook, Money, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Reader (with ClearType), Windows Media Player Everybody's talking about Compaq's new Pocket PC , and T3 can't keep its hands...
Pros: can use in direct sunlight, loads of uses, looks amazing
Cons: not the best expansion, a bit on the expensive side
Summary: I was one of the cynics - make an appointment with anyone with a PDA or similar and it was hard work. A diary with a removable address section and a small notebook and pen and I figured I was as well organised as anyone. Our new IT guru persuaded me to try the iPAQ and I apprehensively put away my diary etc. and tried to operate only with the handheld. I subsequently found myself 'selling' it to everyone who saw me suing it!
Pros: powerful concentration of information, great screen, fast
Cons: some preferred features missing, I?R transfer slow
Compaq iPaq Pocket PC H3630: A PDA that fits the description
2 May 2001
Summary: This little gem has bene inmy posession for four months and I am only just beginning to learn the value of it. Okay it has Windows CE plus pocket versions of Word and Excel (both excellent), but where this product comes into its' own is 3 different things: 1. AvantGo channels - where you can get your PDA updated with updates from major websites and then read articles from such sites as Bloomberg, Reuters, BBC, Guardian, Telegraph, Economist and many others.
Pros: Links easily with Windows (Outlook, Word & Excel)
Summary: This review has been written after three months intensive use of the iPAQ. I’ve found it to be a very reliable machine, with a vast range of features. My questions would be about the general useability of PDAs , and at the end of the review I’ve expressed some concerns about the concept – would you drag your PDA out of the briefcase on a wet windy day, in a dodgy part of London for example!
Pros: Brilliant display, excellent synchronisation features
Cons: Fiddly data input, not suitable for use out doors
Excerpt: "Compaq's iPAQ is going to be the gadget to have in 2001. But this PDA isn't just for gadget fans - most people will find it useful and easy to use. In the past PDAs have never done quite enough to make them great value for money. But now the market has evolved. The iPAQ has all the features we've been waiting for. More computing power than you could get for several thousand pounds on a desktop machine a couple of years ago; but it costs under half ...
Pros: Clear Screen, Great finish and build quality
Cons: Price, MS Money limitations, MS Reader limitations
Excerpt: Alcuni anni ed alcuni lavori fa, mi era stato assegnato un palmare Palm aziendale. Era uno dei primi, di quelli con lo schermo verdognolo in bianco e nero. Mi era stato affidato perché visitando i clienti dovevo dare l'apparenza di essere un vero tecnico moderno... testuali parole del mio capo di allora. In realtà neppure lui sapeva bene cosa farsene del palmare, figuratevi io. In seguito non ho più sentito alcun bisogno di avere un palmare, passando ...
Pros: Buon palmare da comprare usato a basso costo, l'ideale per valutare la reale utilità di un dispositivo del genere
Cons: Se l'utilizzo dello strumento decolla, presto lo si considererà obsoleto e limitato . Le intrinseche limitazioni del sistema operativo e dell'hardware .
Excerpt: ...e il modello si chiama Compaq h3630. Tra le molti funzioni: ha i programmi di word, Excel, rubrica, calendario, calcolatrice, internet Explorer, Windows media player, giochi e molti altri programmi. Unico difetto la poca memoria presente al momento, solo 32 mb, ma me ne sono già procurata una da 1 gb sempre in un negozio su e-bay, sto solo aspettando l' arrivo del postino fra qualche giorno per superare questo piccolo inconveniente. Insomma ...

Excerpt: **Einleitung** Vor einem halben Jahr habe ich mir bei Ebay aufgrund des sehr guten Preis-Leistungverhältnisses den Compaq iPAQ H3630 gekauft. Warum ich Ihn allerdings nach bereits einem Monat wieder verkauft habe werde ich hier schildern: **Technische Daten und Feautures** Die Daten des H3630 beeindrucken: So bietet er mit einer Intel StrongARM RISC CPU 206 Mhz.
