Excerpt: Well I've had my Ipaq for 4 months.. It was bought for me as a present so in terms of value (i don't know how much was paid) but in my reckoning too much. I have used it very little since getting it, as my mobile phone or computer cover all its functionality and generally better. I see the only advantage when adding GPS too it, however I am awaiting its falling prices as its just too much for what it is. Its good for messing about wasting time etc..
Summary: I was a novice PDA user: I read all the reviews and agonised between iPAQ and Palm, and plumped for the former - mostly because of the handwriting recognition software option. I wanted to focus mostly on using it as a diary and organiser and viewing and editing word and excel files. First off I was very impressed; it was fast and relatively user friendly. Nice screen etc. Synchronisation was a doddle with Outlook on my PC. Then the problems started.
Summary: As a gadget freak I couldn't wait to receive my new toy, an Ipaq 2210. Unfortunately, having had the thing a week I am less than impressed with its performance. It is supplied without manual (its on CD) so set up is more complicated than it need be (especially as all the addendums supplied contradict each other). Once set up the frustration really starts. About 1 time in 3 when turned on, the Ipaq closes again automatically.
Excerpt: Nun blicke ich auf 4 Jahre Erfahrung mit diesem Gerät zurück (08-2008). Es ist ein leistungsfähiger PDA, der als Highlight auch als Universal-Infrarot-Fernsteuerung verwendbar ist. Allerdings wird man zusätzliche Software, wie Agenda Fusion oder Pocket Informant aufspielen müssen, um ein wirklich gutes Informationsmanagement zu erhalten. Windows Mobile 2003 ist inzwischen veraltet und es wird schon lange praktisch keine Hersteller-Unterstützung mehr geleistet.
