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.
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.
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...
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.
Excerpt: Superseded model as at August 2007, BUT still available on the shelves. Shop around prices good as superseded brings price down plus this model is the mid range for processor speed so they cannot justify a higher price.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.
Pros: Has a huge amount of features for the money
Cons: Audio playback volume, Apple files unsupported
Excerpt: I have reduced my work day by hours with this piece of kit. The daily ritual of submitting reports, which I used to handwrite and type up later is no more. I format my typed report into the pocket PC and build up my report as I go along.
Excerpt: I bought my HX2490 from e-bay, fully boxed and unused. When it arrived I was pleasantly surprised. I had always been a palm user, and had decided to come across to Hp because of the ease with which word and excel documents will transfer onto it.
Pros: Sturdy, good software, smooth link with Pc, fast, all features needed for a pocket Pc
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.
Excerpt: I bought this model because I wanted wifi for internet/email access on the go, and bluetooth to link to my mobile phone. The HX2490 has both and they are ridiculously easy to set up. The wifi connection takes a few taps of the stylus and bluetooth is even easier to turn on and off.
Pros: Large screen; excellent battery life; easy to use wifi and bluetooth
Cons: Bulky/heavy in pocket, not all apps work with Windows Mobile 5 yet
