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.
Summary: I'm writing this on my hx4700 itself. I've never liked laptops and a pocket pc seemed my best choice for mobile computing. I spent a long time researching and it paid off. The next best seemed to be the lifedrive and I'm so pleased I settled on this instead, having seen others having problems with them. The screen is fantastic. The inbuilt software surprised my friends who have other mobile pc's.
Summary: The new HP iPAQ 4700 media companion is the most advanced PDA on todays market. Far outclassing all other handheld computers with its powerful 624MHz processor and high Ram value [192MB] this is definately the best PDA for the power user or for those that don't want to have to upgrade for at least a year or so.
