Summary: Even when it was some years since I went last IPAQ H5000 series still remains a highly sought item by developers and users looking for something more than a PDA. With the ability to get more software and expand their hardware and PCMCIA CF jackets, collapsible keyboards for IPAQ H5000 Series may well be a more than compadora portable, a laptop pocket.
Summary: I had one of these before and loved it. i got a new one now but the problem is working with Vista. I had to spend a lot of time to ged proper drivers for it and still had problems. I know it is not the iPAQ since it worked fine with XP before.
Summary: It's a fantastic product actually. I give 5 Stars. But, the problem with the OS. It's still PPC 2003, and unupgradeable. SO, I got a little problem with the OS, It can't be upgrade to WM5/WM6..
Summary: The iPaq has been the benchmark for PPC devices for the last 5 years. From the beginning, there have been a number of competitors, but up until recently, there have been none with the staying power of the iPaq. As a professional nerd, I have been creating software for PDA devices off and on for the last 5 years. The iPaq has always been my machine of choice, and the one that I seem to always own at least one of.
Excerpt: Hello, i bought the iPAQ H5550 on E-bay for 200 Pounds.The first thing that attracted my attention on this particular model , is the fingerprint reader.The device works well,better than more i have tried before.The accuracy of the read is based on the speed of the sliding of your finger on it, but i have to say that it has 99% chanche to recognize you at the first slide, after just a couple of tries.It also has integrated Wireless network card(802.11b),not the fastes one...
Excerpt: There is so much i could say about this pocket pc. It is great it has built in WLAN, Bluetooth, Inferred. There is a whole lot of programs that can be installed onto it. We have used it as a sat nav with the TOM TOM software and the GPS antenna. I've brought a program that allows me to use it as a TV remote.
Excerpt: This is a techie's dream gadget, and an extremely useful piece of kit for anyone who needs to organise their life on the move. The sexiest aspect is, of course, the biometric fingerprint scanner. It's easy to use, and only occasionally refuses to take a scan. As there is a PIN alternative (you can opt for both options to be turned on or select either one of them) it doesn't detract from the joy of having something that nobody else's PDA has and being able to show off in...
Pros: Sexy, biometric fingerprint scan, good battery life, clear display
Cons: Wireless network reception is poor compared to desktop/laptop PC
Excerpt: I really wouldn't be without this PDA. It has survived being dropped. Keeps a charge for a good 4 hours continuous use on battery. Is a dream to connect to the pc and exchange files and data. Recently I installed adobe acrobat for mobiles and now my PDA is a whole library of PDF books. Running my own business I needed something small and pocket size to jot down my notes on the move. I use the free hand writing available or the voice record to do this.
