Same old iPaq strength and weaknesses....

Summary: I am a long time iPaq user (hw6915 previously), so the fact the battery life has not improved is livable. But the poor telephone application and its slow response to user input is very disappointing. I also can't get the Bluetooth to pair properly with my car (not had a problem with any other phones) etc, etc. As always with HP, it's not a bad PDA -very functional but a poor phone. I regret my decision to buy an iPaq again.
Excerpt: I work for Hp and this phone has some faults. On the Vodafone network it uses to much power so the battery runs out of juice just after lunch. The PDA functions are very good but the software is slow to react to your commands. The phone is rubbish. Hangs up, switches itself off, locking and screen freezes are frequent. Press to answer a call and it sends the call to vmail. I would not buy this phone again.
Summary: This is a great little device - apart from the pathetically poor battery life. It's full of useful features and I was looking forward to using it to keep in touch with the office when I'm on the road, but the battery's down to 10% and the iPAQ's beeping at me after around 4 hours use. And not very intensive use at that - a few phone calls, read & send maybe 5 or 6 emails and 4 hours later it's dead. This device is not fit for purpose - shame on you HP.
Excerpt: Produkt: Handdator/Smartphone Märke: HP iPAQ Modell: 914 Business Messenger Introduktion & historia: Klasskamraterna Bill Hewlett och Dave Packard tog examen från universitetet i Stanford 1934. De var då utbildade elingenjörer. Med uppmuntran från professorerna på Stanford så startade de tillsammans företaget Hewlett-Packard Company i januari 1939. För att vara extra tydlig så står alltså HP för Hewlett-Packard.
