Summary: I like the Jornada 540 because, given a third-party C compiler I am able to write custom applications for it, and I enjoy programming. The same cannot be said for more modern smart-phones and PDAs. It updates with MS Outlook thanks to ActiveSync, and it does all that I need to do - I like being able to update my Jornada by updating my Outlook on my PC.
Summary: I love it because it holds all my information all in 1 place without having to keep a bunch of papers. There is nothing I dislike about it it's great. I decided to go into the electronic age and try it and i'm glad I did, the looks was another thing that really caught my eye. The decription of the item was very correct and definitive. Keep up the good work.
I have downloaded an ops manual from HP & am using it.

Summary: I wanted to see if I could use it to take notes at meetings using a fold up Targus keyboard I had acquired earlier. I am looking at a manual I downloaded from HP and hope to be prficient at using the Jornada soon.
Summary: The Hp Jornada I bought a week ago for around 30 dollars was a very good product even if it is a few years old. It has many software resources out on the net and after a bit of a learning curve it can become a valuable addition to anyone's pocket. It's features include speakers,a microphone,touchscreen,16meg of ram,16 of rom, and a compact flash slot. With the compact flash slot this pda can be equiped with a wifi card or a hefty amount of storage.
Summary: I have 3 hp jornada540 pdas. They were all cost under $50 for the pda. Some I have even bought for aroud $27.00 on ebay. This of couse dosen't include the storage card. I got them for my job and they all seam to work great. I would have 3 working pda incase one brakes then I will have time repair it. The HP Jordada 540 pda comes with Microsoft word, excel, microsoft reader, mcirosoft money, simple caculator and solitaire.
Summary: I am an active volunteer with the American Red Cross. I need access to many other volunteers phone numbers as well as several web sites. I have a Palm but I needed more info as well as web access. I didn't want a Treo or Blackberry so this Jornada was the item for me. The price was right and everything works great.
Summary: This is an excellent and more affordable alternative to the Palm Pilots. I fully enjoy this. If you are a college student...you don't know what you are missing until you get one of these. Its a great way to organize assignments and set deadlines and priority level. If you are considering this...stop...and just get it.
