Hewlett Packard hx2415 pda

boomer_mel, Ebay
22 March 2010
  • 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

hoffert1958, Ebay
21 November 2006
  • 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

1 June 2008
  • Excerpt: "...I have bought from the HP site. Another problem with it is that its really hungry on power. I find it runs down its charge quite quickly. Its important that you get a case for it to stop it scratching, and get extra pens for it, as they tend to go missing, or maybe its just me. I have it connected through my wifi and its superb little browser, both at home outside when I want to check email. Make sure if you use the client that you use an imap ...
  • Pros: Powerful, fast, sleek
  • Cons: Getting programs into the system

Impressed, but alarm issue stopped perfection

1 July 2007
  • Excerpt: "...decided to come across to Hp because of the ease with which word and excel documents will transfer onto it. The weight of it makes it feel like a quality product, and it was also good to have all the buttons where you can see them straight away without having to flip down the bottom like I did with the palm. Because I use my Ipaq in a busy retail environment I immediately bought a metal case for it. I also added an SD card to add to the memory. All ...
  • Pros: Sturdy, good software, smooth link with Pc, fast, all features needed for a pocket Pc
  • Cons: Alarm problems

  • Excerpt: "I bought my PDA from ebay, for a discount price; I didn't want to pay a lot of money for a PDA and I wanted a really good one. The hx2490 comes with Windows mobile 5.0 which is the newer version of the windows CE operating system. The processor is slightly faster than it's predecessors and has wifi and bluetooth aswell. This means that you can quickly use any wireless station and hook into that network, or transfer documents to your phone or computer ...
  • Pros: Lots of features and wi - fi/bluetooth
  • Cons: A little expensive and bad battery life

Instant access

  • Excerpt: "At first I just used this purely to add a navigation system, which works great. It's fast and because of the screen size just a quick glance keeps you on track. Though very quickly I got to know the complete system and I love it. I use it as a mobile access tool for anything I need. I used to always have a small diary in my bag that I wrote all my important dates and info in. Together with my mobile phone I had all I needed to be organised and in ...
  • Pros: Everything you need in the palm of your hand .
  • Cons: You have to remember to keep it charged as much as possible

Its easy-to-use and had the great Windows Pocket PC 2003, which should be respected, very much ...
