Excerpt: It seems everyone has a smartphone these days with mobile internet access and apps galore. I for one have not yet given in to the excessive charges required for such mobility. Instead, I decided to find a PDA that could fill all the functions I need. The IPaq 111 was pretty much the only affordable option. I like the Windows Mobile interface, probably because Windows is what I am used to.
Excerpt: I had to get a PDA for some software we need to be using in pharmacy school. I went to the software site, and blessedly found that I could buy a great PDA pre-loaded and ready to use "out-of-the-box". This is definitely a type of purchase I would endorse. I have enjoyed my PDA and had no problems with it whatsoever.
Excerpt: I fell in love in pocket pcs and recently received this one as a gift....it's like a part of me, I can do almost anything and am able to load lots of free applications to give me CLOSE to what I get from laptop/desktop.
Cons: I've had trouble with converting palm info from my vista laptop to this new device. Also battery power is very limited, could be better. Anyone suggest conversion process of palm desktop contacts and calendar to portable?
Excerpt: We had one of these several years ago, before the iPad and Kindle/Nook/eReader craze. It was easy to use and functional for having internet on the go. For its time, it was a good product. The stylus conveniently slipped into the top of the iPaq so that it would not get lost.
Pros: Jot down notes, ideas, checklists, things to do in an instant. Really light and thin, rubbery grip on the back. Nice screen. Loud speaker not to mention a 3.5mm headphone jack is awesome. Handy record button. It has office mobile (which is free).
Cons: Ridiculous battery drainage .The keyboard and transcriber are garbage. Yahoo Messenger not available on it (hopefully soon). Active Snyc (the software) + USB dependent.
Summary: I bought this HP Ipaq for my husband as a birthday present. He loves it. He wanted it primarily for the E-Sword Bible along with all the commentaries. We put a 2 gig memory card in and it can hold all kinds of books which he likes. Also he accesses the internet with it and although the screen is small he can access email and the like. He really enjoys it.
Summary: The iPAQ I had before this one was purchased in 2001 and showing its age something awful. After suffering the pain of swapping over to a new device, I am up and running and very happy. I use my Pocket PC for everything, including reading ebooks on both Microsoft Reader and eReader. I'm impressed by most of the new features of Windows Mobile (except the lack of backup through ActiveSync, what's up with THAT?) and using it in all the ways I'm accustomed to.
