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. It is nice to be able to load Word documents and PowerPoint presentations on...
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. Love to play my games on this and Great for travel, I take it with me everywhere
Summary: I was looking for a PDA to replace the one I purchased in 2003 that died. The iPAQ 111 was a good fit for what I needed without going the smartphone route. The iPAQ I purchased is in excellent condition but did need some cleanup to remove programs and data installed by the previous owner.
Summary: While I have yet to completely find my way around the HP111, what I have done, and seen, I love and look forward to using it for a long time. The capacity and functions are somewhat amazing for an old guy like me, but I'm not that old that I can't learn new tricks. The new fangled tools on the market are quit amazing (not to be repetitive), but I often look back on my days when I had to use a slide rule and pencil and paper and wish times were more simple now.
Summary: Even in 2010 this is a good deal. A lot of people like to use their phone as a PDA, but usually all in one pda phones like this are a bit expensive, require some kind of data plan which will add $50 or more to your phone, etc. I bought this used for $145 shipped on ebay and really like the features. This PDA doesn't have IR, but it does have bluetooth, and I was able to find a foldable keyboard for it for pretty cheap. So why a PDA over a netbook?
