Summary: I've had this product before and gave it away thinking that with all other devices I would no longer need this one. I am so happy to replace the one I gave away. It has everything including a large beautiful screen and wifi. The only thing that you might miss is a phone component. For me, my phone is just a phone, no "smarter"than I am.
Best PDA for the serious mobile pro. This is not an iPad, it's a TOOL!
21 February 2012
Summary: I've tried just about every PDA out there and this is hands down the best you can get. I say that because if there is one thing that stands out head and shoulders above the rest is the robust construction and feature set this unit provides. Its only weakness is the standard WM2003 OS it shipped with, but with the help of the XDA community, you can easily upgrade it to WM6.5 and that's when it really shines.
Summary: This Device is not only very powerful it is a very FAST PDA capable of running windows mobile 6.1 with ease and the touch pad for mouse functions turns this PDA into a true pocket computer. As Always it has the HP robust construction and the VGA Screen is Beautiful!
Summary: After upgrading to WM6.1 from xda this machine runs like a Ferrari. No matter what you throw at it...A2DP (bluetooth wireless stereo audio streaming), Skype, PocketTV, SlingPlayer...the unit works literally like a "pocket" pc. Unlike all other PPCs this device can do more than one task at once! The high-res screen is stunning and still not surpassed today by most units...ditto for cpu.
Summary: They have this item listed multiple times in EBay’s review section, one of which has other EBay reviewers, too. I have copied my review on all the places the item’s listed. There are many professionals’ reviews on the web, too. I've owned other PDAs and done extensive research before I bought my Hx4700. This PDA is by far one of the best. Its brightness and clarity is impressive.
Excerpt: "...is readily available on the HP website and other places that sell them online. This is intended as a 'what's is it really like to live with' review. I have had my 4700 for over 2 years now, which is longer than I have kept any similar device (I usually trade them in every year). The reason I have kept this one so long is that it still does everything I want it to do. I remember when I got it I was amazed at the clarity of the large 4In TFT screen ...
Pros: Brilliant screen, plenty of power, excellent value .
Cons: It did physically break but was covered in the warranty .
