  • Excerpt: "I am very pleased with my Ipaq. My IPAQ was running Windows Pocket PC (ce 3.0), which is fully of handy features, however recently I decided I wanted to try installing Linux on it and see how it goes. So with help from my mate I installed GPE Linux, and it is currently working fine. Linux comes with more features than Windows Pocket PC, and I would recommend installing Linux on your Ipaq only if you have experience with Linux. Overall I love the ...
  • Pros: Easy to use, Looks nice, Expansion packs available, Can be used for GPS or MP3 player .
  • Cons: Battery life can be quite low if the screen backlight is on, Expansion packs are expensive .

Battery just doesn't cut the mustard

Furr, Ciao
24 June 2003
  • Excerpt: "I got the H3660 for my 21st birthday and couldn't wait to play with it. I spent ages putting all of my addresses onto it and even took it to lectures to make notes on it. After battling with the handwriting recognition software, I bought Calligrapher. Then I cursed and bought a Stowaway keyboard instead. The keyboard is fantastic and really makes inputting data far easier. Compaq originally boasted that on it's brightest setting, the ipaq could ...
  • Pros: Flashy looks and slim design
  • Cons: Battery life  -  need I say more?

The best thing i have

NoBeckham..., Ciao

  • Excerpt: ""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 ...

Compaq Ipaq its the best on the market

warby001, Ciao
28 April 2003
  • Excerpt: "I had one of these bought for me buy the company I work for which is probably why I don't worry about how much it cost. However it is a rearly good piece of kit and I rarely get that excited over computer products. So why is it so good? It has a colour screen and a Windows operating system which makes it very easy to use. It synchronizes with Outlook which is brilliant and what I use it for most. I use it when on the train to read emails, check ...
  • Pros: Colour Screen, Synchronizes with Outlook
  • Cons: None, you get what you pay for

Not convinced of Ipaq usefulness

tonyjacks..., Ciao
12 February 2003
  • Excerpt: "Having owned an Ipaq for 18 months now, I am now convinced that this is just an expensive gadget. The main problem is using the device as a serious computer. Information and data entry is too slow and prone to errors even with practice. A laptop computer with full size keyboard is a much better device for this. If you just need a device to display information, then it serves a pretty useful function even though most documents will look extremely ...
  • Pros: Small, loads of software
  • Cons: Battery life poor, difficult to use

IPAQ SchmIPAQ

  • Excerpt: "...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 ...
  • Pros: big enough too see off a serious mugger
  • Cons: heavy enough to prevent escape from a serious mugger

  • Excerpt: "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 ...
  • Pros: versatile, great colors
  • Cons: relatively expensive, sometimes slow

The iPaq Fun and Functional

garfitt, Ciao
22 September 2002
  • Excerpt: "I have owned my iPaq H3630 for two years and I have never regretted buying this device (it was a choice between it and a Playstation 2). The iPaq looks stylish with its silver casing and is one of the slimmest Pocket PCs around. The controls are ergonomically designed and easy to use. However one problem with this model is that the directional pad and buttons cannot be used simultaneously, which is quite annoying if you want to play games on it ...
  • Pros: Slim, Good screen, Expansion Packs .
  • Cons: Not possible to use directional pad with other buttons (fixed on later models), Popping noise
