Hewlett Packard hx2415 pda

  • Summary: Battery life on all 2400 series iPAQs is not the greatest. Just get an extra battery so you dont have to worry about it. Dont get one of these wet or they will self-destruct. I had a 2495 that got wet and we put it in rice for three days...it came back on and then promptly died for good. Recommend an AquaPac if you are using outdoors in the rain. Other than that they have typical good hp build quality.

Review of HP iPAQ Pocket PC hx2415

mccordwin, Ebay
22 January 2008
  • Summary: I love the HP iPAQ. It's a good product. It's easy to find most things and customize most things. The WiFi is easy to use. Everything is pretty straightforward. The Windows Mobile is more robust than the Palm operating system. Like most HP products, the iPAQ is well adapted to Windows Mobile. I can't comment on e-mail capabilities or Bluetooth because I don't use them. On the down side, Microsoft ActiveSync leaves ALOT to be desired.

Quality PDA

  • Summary: Whats not to like! An occasional soft reset but thats about it. I use on the road with GPS software, on the golf course, with golf software, at work and as contact list. Holds photos and has all the basic programs. The only other thing that could be better is not having to go to running program list and shut down program after using. Wi fi , bluetooth , sd , and cf slots all in a nice case with a protective clear cover. Still looks great after first year!

Portable computing - iPAKing with a punch

bigfatdog..., Ciao
1 June 2008
  • Excerpt: iPaking with a Punch ================ I have had my iPak for about 2 years. At first I had difficulty switching over from using a written filofax to the iPaq. The beauty is that the calendar diary on this is absolutely fantastic, it remembers, and it lets you know when you need to do something. My biggest difficulty and I suppose a bug bare I have with it is that it's hard to get programs for the iPaq.
  • Pros: Powerful, fast, sleek
  • Cons: Getting programs into the system

A good pocket PC, though there are better out there, buy if you can get cheap.

  • Excerpt: I brought this product as a refurbished, off ebay, for £180. It isn't the thinest of devices, or the lightest, but it will do. The screen is big enough, and it has all the right features, WLAN, Bluetooth etc. There are a few glitches in it though. After a month or so of having it, the touch screen messed up, part of the screen just would not function.

HP iPAQ hx2490 Review by Stevengw

Stevengw, Ciao
23 November 2007
  • Excerpt: I've been using this for some time now, and i gotta say its one of the best devices i have ever seen and used. Starting off, is the screen. The main threat to any PDA is its screen - HP took great care of this and has included a flip screen protector on (Which can be removed, though it doesn't annoy me at all) It also has a great screen resolution - especially for movies.
  • Pros: Everything
  • Cons: Speaker isn't loud (Not that it matters)

If you can sort out the glitch (or don't have it), this is a really excellent PDA.

  • Excerpt: I'm rather in love with this PDA, but it wasn't without its teething problems. I bought it mainly because I wanted to try and organise my calendar, and also so I could take around professional manuals without breaking my back. It does both of these things very well, and is very nippy. The load time for all the applications I run is minimal, and it seems to cope well with doing several things at once. The design is good, nicely weighted without being heavy.

Review of HP iPAQ Pocket PC Hx2490b from owner

padbury, Ciao
14 August 2007
  • Excerpt: Superseded model as at August 2007, BUT still available on the shelves. Shop around prices good as superseded brings price down plus this model is the mid range for processor speed so they cannot justify a higher price. Very good unit. Big screen, modern operating system, wi-fi and bluetooth that work well and simultaneously.
  • Pros: Has a huge amount of features for the money
  • Cons: Audio playback volume, Apple files unsupported
