USER THOUGHT: Traffic control - Tim Serb
I wanted to let vou know how both myself and my colleagues use handhelds. We work in a Traffic Management company here in Perth, Australia. All jobs are logged in to a custom data base on our central computer the data is then dispatched by email to our Jornada 720 handhelds. Each email contains job number, description, location, client and details. We then carry out the job, enter the details, maintenance times and then email it back to central office with all data complete so they know the job has been completed

USER THOUGHT: A female perspective-Joanne Ward
A female perspective of the 720 is an interesting one. We like our handhelds to be able to fit into our handbags. We like to get them out (our 720 handheld's that is) at a moments notice especially if we are using a cellphone and need to jot or look up a quick number. We like to compile business plans and draw sketches of what we mean. We like to fill up our 720 diary with Manhattan lunches and pedicure appointments. Most of all we like to fill Pocket Outlook with the tens of contacts we know, however finally we love to email gossip to friends from a Starbucks coffee house in our 2 hour lunches.

EDITORIAL: Getting Hotmail to your handheld - Sammual (webmaster)



At last after so much promising here is the article on getting Hotmail to your 720, remember it's a cheat rather than the real thing, but it works fine for me so here goes........First of all you will need to subscribe to Fastmail which is a rather sleek email program that allows you to do a number of things. Firstly it will allow you to check POP email. It will also provide you with an email address and probably the most important element is that it allows you to download Hotmail. Not just manually but it will check it automatically. There is a small yearly charge to use Fastmail. Once you have signed up for an account follow the Hotmail retrieval instructions and set Fastmail up to retrieve email on an hourly basis. Go to your email client and set up your email client to use Fastmail’ s pop and smtp settings. However what I tend to do is for the 'reply email' put in the Hotmail address so that recipients can reply directly back to your Hotmail address. Thats about it and it works for me without fail. So just to conclude your 720 or handheld checks your Fastmail account which checks your Hotmail account and then pulls them to your Fastmail account, which pulls down to your handheld. Until someone comes up with a decent solution then this is the best solution for me.

THOUGHT: Call myself an expert - Andrew Wolstenholme
You think you know everything about your handheld until someone comes up with something you didn't know, and it makes it worse when it's something so trivial. Take Bill, he has posted something on the forum that I was not even aware could be done and will, when I browse the internet, open a new window instead of the one I am already surfing from.

"Hold the 'Shift'key while you double click the link you are trying to view.This will bring up the link in a new window."

Yep, you probably all knew that except for me ;-)

THOUGHT: TECHXNY - Sammual (webmaster)


Well both Andrew Wolstenholme and myself have been invited to attend the TECHXNY in New York later this week. I am attending on Thursday and I am really looking forward to the new innovations in Handheld computers, no matter what model. I will report my findings next week, but on the whole it should be a good idea. I fly into JFK on Thursday lunch time and will have to instruct my New York cabbie to put his foot down, to get to Midtown in time, but I should be fine, providing there are no flight delays.

THOUGHT: Hotmail on your Handheld - Sammual (webmaster)
Over the next couple of days I am going to add my comments or I should say 'cheat' to getting Hotmail on your handheld. I will get round to it, I promise. However in the meantime, Matthew Schlepp has spotted a way of getting around the Hotmail problem, which you can read in the posting below and within our forum. I think we will post this in our reference column to the left of the screen.

THOUGHT: Hotmail on your handheld - Matthew Schlepp

After 15 fruitless emails to/from MSN and Hotmail(who said that the J720/HPC2000 was unable to EVER access thier site to retreive mail). This is what I found, that helps with some of these websites that feel that HPC2000 isn't capable of displaying the page.

http://66.40.94.130/cgi-bin/ikonboard3/ikonboard.cgi?s=3d1162c526faffff;act=ST;f=29;t=137

John says...
most other sites will ignore the "Windows CE" platform ID, but they don't.
If you feel like messing with your registry, you can fix it so servers will think you are running the full desktop IE4.1

Edit these two registry keys by removing the " Windows CE" portion in the value. Leave the rest the same.

Key[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
Edit the "User Agent" value.

and key
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\User Agent]
Edit the "Platform" value.

As always, it's a good idea to back up the registry just in case your fingers slip in the editor....
...That's want John says

Believe me, it works wonders.

THOUGHTS: Thoughts on the 728 - George Clapperton
I've just bought the 728, this will be my fourth HP handheld, the last being the 680. In between I bought an Ipaq and fairly recently the Jornada 568 but eventually I always return to the handheld.

It is certainly a lot faster than the 680 and far better at running a number of applications at once. I frequently had to knock apps out of the 680 to speed things up.

The battery claims seem to be wrong life of the 680 and 728 are very similar.

Main problem is obviously the change of chip from SH to ARM has prevented the transfer of a lot of my software and though its cheap enough to replace many of the suppliers now concentrate on PPC! Also there is no software freely available yet to make any use of the smart card slot.

Overall I am very happy with it and it was well worth the cost of the upgrade... anyone want to buy a 680?

NEWS: Handheld games including Doom - Gamefreak
I have been working on a port of Doom for HPC's.It works very well with GameX on my J680, and I have done a GAPI HPC version too. Should work with most CE2.11/HPC2000 HPC's. There is currently an issue with the Mobile Pro 770. (It doesn't like GameX!)Being a HPC owner, I realize just how few games we have. Over the next few months, I will be bringing some influential games to the platform.These will include models such as the HP Jornada 680 and 720.

USER THOUGHT:Is there a real need to use a PC? - John Igo
Why carry a laptop when you have a Jornada 720? I have found that I'm only using my main PC around a quarter of the time that I would normally. And that's due to me continually using my 720. It's so portable and allows me to work in whatever location I may be at any time. I back up my handheld several times a week using my main office computer. Apart from that, there really is little need for me to use a PC.

THOUGHT: Hotmail on your handheld - Sammual (webmaster)
Have you seen that they have introduced a way to download your Hotmail email on to your Pocket PC? Yes, thats bright, however I am still a little frustrated that downloading Hotmail on to your handheld is still limited. I have found a 'cheat', that enables you to retrieve your Hotmail mail and send email. I am going to be sharing this with you over forthcoming days. So stay tuned.

USER THOUGHT: Sad to be so addicted - John Dawson
Ok, so where do I start. I have so many great things to say about handheld computers. In fact I really love my 720. It's simply the best. Do I sound sad? Well yes, but you see let me explain. Not only am I a student but I'm also an events manager for a seminar events organization here in Boston. Imagine, me sat behind a desk, PC to one side, handheld 720 to the other side, and clients in front of me. All venue locations and events dates are kept on PC, and my boss then downloads them into an excel spreadsheet that can be downloaded onto my 720. So even when I am visiting corporate clients, bazooom, there is the information, right in front of me. I get very excited over my 720 as you can see. However there is a disadvantage. It's very very addictive. I feel helpless without it. Appointments, contacts the full works are all kept and maintained within this small computer. Love and treat your 720, it will certainly give you so much back.

THOUGHT: Happy with the new Jornada handheld - Ian Park
Here is a quick survey, are you pleased that the Jornada handheld model will continue as the 728? Well obviously this is what many handheld users stated:

52% Yes we are pleased
41% Pleased but wish that HP had revised their 720 model and had upgraded many more of the features rather than just a simple upgrade.
7% Said that they were looking for a new handheld platform

I feel that there are good conclusions to be made here. Personally I expected more people to demand more of an platform upgrade rather than just simple tweaks. It's amazing the number of you who wanted something more significant such as Pocket PC 2002 upgrade. Amazing that this may seem. I was also surprised at the 7% of people who were tiered of the platform and wanted to move on. In conclusion I actually sit with the 41% percent whom think a more significant upgrade was needed but nevertheless were pleased that the Jornada handheld was continuing. By the way I survey 64 Jornada 720 users.

USER THOUGHT: Glad I picked the 720 - Gill Desborough
Unfortunatly I was slow in picking up a handheld so slow that a week later they decided to discontinue the 720. Thankfully they decided on the 728. With good reason I say. However I am going to wait before deciding to buy one as I want to see what other users think of it before I part with my money. I'm still trying to get to grips with the 720, let alone think about investing in newer technology. I must admit though that the 720 is a great computer and I'm like a kid with a new toy.

HANDHELD SITE UPDATES: Taking a look at which handheld sites have been updated - Sammual (webmaster)
I'm going to run this posting on a weekly basis, just to let you know and give you an idea what handheld sites have been updated on a weekly basis. This week we start with the Simply HPC site which has added content to their website. Meanwhile you will find that Raul Lucky's 720 site was updated earlier, at the beginning of the month. As ever Mettavant's J720 Software site continues to search for 720 software to add to it's listings. French readers get their own Jornada website with Jornada Passion again it's updated on a regular basis. International readers can also translate the site into a language of their own thanks to the many translator websites available (we will add a link to a translated version of Jornada Passion this week). Unfortunately Sean and Mel's site has not been updated for some time, however it's still a good site to take a look at.

As ever a list of handheld sites with links can be found in the left hand column, further down the page for your use. Please support these sites.

EDITORIAL: Bolts & Nuts a recent game addition - Ian Park
A recent introduction to the world of handheld computers is Bolts&Nuts.
Now turn your brain on and try to play against time! Bolts&Nuts supports two modes: Normal and Timetrial.

The aim of the game is to get as many points as you can by swapping two adjacent items (bolts, gears, or jevels). In order to get points you should create horizontal or vertical sets of 3 identical items.

In Normal mode the game ends when there are no available moves, but you can play as long as you can.

In TimeTrial mode you should play against time. In this mode you should pass each level during fixed time. E.g. you should pass first level by 150 seconds, second for 135 seconds and so on... This mode is designed to those players who already have a great experience of playing BeJewelled. I am going to give this one a try and see what it's like it certainly sounds a good game.

NEWS:Sunnysoft InterWrite 5.0P HPC - Andrew Wolstenholme



International users will find this piece of software to be of extra value as it customizes the keyboard to international standards. There are two versions both Standard and the Pro version. The standard version allows includes (among others) software keyboard for many European countries, extension for handwriting recognition of accented characters, and regional settings for many European countries (the operating system uses the regional settings for using proper format of date and time, numbers and currency and accented characters in Internet pages and AvantGo channels). Whilst the Pro version adds full localization of the system, built-in applications and help to selected language. Purchase price is $29.95. However I have a feeling that this software will become a 'must have' for international users.

USER THOUGHT: Writing, writing and writing – Henri Jackson
I love writing. I love write poems and short stories and I can capture the mood wherever I am. Using a HPC is much better than using a laptop because of the sheer convenience and size. The marvel of it’s color screen is amazing especially when your outdoors. Battery power is average however in my opinion it could be improved, especially when tackling longer journeys when you need the extra time to work. Email is fantastic, Internet browsing is a drip, it takes forever and to be honest I do not see the benefit of browsing on such a small screen. However that is where my complaints stop. So would I swap my 720 for anything else? Mmmmm let me think, the answer would defiantly be No! Long live the 720.

USER THOUGHT: Overjoyed – Phil Francis
My Jornada 720 has lasted me for the last two years. However I was pondering the future of the 720 especially when there was talk of it being ‘phased out’. It got me wondering what the next generation of handheld would be, what would I progress to? In my opinion the 720 could do everything that I wanted in such a small package. However, it is always disappointing when the machine that you have been using and that you have relied upon is ‘phased out’. It’s a crying shame, however I was overjoyed to hear that the natural replacement will be the Jornada 728. I understand that there will not be major differences between its predecessors the 720, however the new color design and casing looks a good enough excuse ;-)

Anyone having problems downloading PoGeo that we illustrated the other day, may want to download it this way. Thanks to Bill for posting it on the forum:

1. Goto http://www.pdacentral.com/wince/preview/32451.html to download the LHA compression utility (lha255e.exe) to the same directory where you have downloaded the compressed PoGeo file.

2. Once downloadloaded, run lha255e.exe by double-clicking on it. It will expand into several files. One file will be lha.exe.

3. Open a MS-DOS window, goto the directory where the lha.exe and the PoGeo files are located, and type at the prompt:
lha e *.lzh then enter. For example: C:\temp>lha e *.lzh

A CAB file will be decompressed.

4. Copy the CAB file to your J720 and then execute it from the Start\Run... menu on the J720

5. It will ask you where (in which directory) you want to install PoGeo. A sub-directory called PoGeo holding the program files will be created in the directory you select.

6. During installation, you may be asked if you want to replace some existing files. I chose NOT to replace them.

USER THOUGHT: So much can be done on such a little handheld - Lesley Harris
I'm new to the world of the Jornada 720. I had a Sharp handheld running Windows CE, loved it but found the hardware, in fact the buttons to be honest were beginning to "drop off". I really could not be bothered getting the machine repaired as was on the hunt for Red October, I wanted a new handheld. After much consideration of whether I should go for a Psion or a Windows handheld I decided to opt for the Jornada 720. Since the day I purchased it I have never looked back, its an ideal companion and the perfect machine. It has never let me down. Not once! I take it everywhere, it travels in my handbag. I find excuses to go to coffee shops, open my handbag, retrieve my 720 and start typing. Sending email is so easy thanks to my infra red phone and 720. I love to check up on the news using the internet browser. So much can be done on such a little handheld. Why did other companies phase out handheld computers? I am unsure why they would do something like that. However I am confident that in five years time the Handheld computer will certainly be popular again. It's like a changing fashion, those in the know stick with the fashion and in this case it has to be a handheld computer and in my case the Jornada 720.

EDITORIAL: Ian's asking the questions again - Sammual (webmaster)

Ian Park has one of his surveys going. He has asked 39 Jornada 720 users who work in a wide spectrum of industries, why their businesses chose to use 720's than any other handheld or Palm computer. Ian will reveal his survey later this week as he is trying to obtain more views and exceed the 50 limit. Should be a good one Ian. In the meantime Ian has more survey pieces lined up and if you would like to take part then as ever drop me a line.

EDITORIAL: Mobipocket for a good read - Ian Park



Those that like reading on their Palm would do no harm in checking out Mobipocket which is by the way a free download. It runs perfectly on all HPC models. Now I love to read books and it was not until recently that I started getting into reading ebooks. I thought the whole idea was unconventional. However I now love it. I was on a recent train journey, lasting all of two hours and I thought well I am going to give it a go and attempt to read a Stephen King novel on my 720. I had tried it previously on my Palm, and really did not like the feel of it. Needless to say the two hours flew by. Reading it on a nice color 720 screen was the perfect thing. I really was amazed and really enjoyed it, and as I said prefer to read it on my 720 than on say something like my Palm. Now there is a wealth of great novels and books that one can download, obviously you have to pay for them but it's a great way to use your handheld and it really amazes me how you can use your handheld in so many different ways. Anyway as I said there are a number of ebook readers on the market. I prefer Mobipocket, and it is a free download from here. Once you visit the site take a look at the books that you can download and most of all enjoy!

NEWS: Forum views - Sammual (webmaster)
Firstly thanks guys for your emails on the forum. I received 46 emails in the last twelve hours....wow! Many thanks for your comments. We worked it out this morning and over 82% of you want the forum to remain as it is. So with that in mind I am going to keep it as it is. Thanks to all of you who said it was a valuable asset, I really appreciate that. Oh by the way I am going to get rid of that damm stupid advert at the top of the page over the forthcoming week, so at least the site will look better as a consequence.

THOUGHT: Have you seen how large the forum has gotten? - Sammual (webmaster)
I love reading the forum, I love your posts and would like to say many thanks. However I have been thinking whether to introduce a new layout or even look for a new board provider. However there would be no way of transferring all the old data and I do not want to lose the information as many people find it of reference and still continue to add to many older posts. Give me your thoughts when you get a chance by emailing me. Should I change it? I will go with what you guys think. One thing is for certain I have no intention of losing the data already contributed, and I am only looking to improve the layout at this stage, as I said let me know what you think.

EDITORIAL: PoGeo, strange name but a great application - Sammual (webmaster)



This is one of my faourites at the moment. It's brilliant if your travelling abroad, but just fasinating to read. I'm so sad that I love anything like this and I have always had a fasination with the weather and geography since I was younger. Here is a list of features PoGeo:

It displays the position of the city in the world at mark.
*It displays a monthly average temperature, humidity, amount of rainfall
and the temperature-humidity index(the discomfort index)of the city
in the world by the graph.
*It displays the speed of the daily rotation in the surface of earth of the city in the world.
*It displays the inner structure of the earth.
*The globe leans on the ecliptic and turns.
*It displays the sun which moves around the ecliptic.
*It displays the date and time and the place of the solar eclipse.
*It displays the back side of the earth, to the specified spot.
*It displays the image which can compare the size of the planets in the solar system relatively.

As I said this is fascinating and best of all it is freeware. You cannot ask for more than that ;-)

USER THOUGHT: An accountants aid - Sany Ross
Having used a 720 for some time I would like to say that it is the most useful mobile computing device that I have used. Believe me I have gone through so many computers in my time however the 720 is the icing on the cake. I do not care if they discontinue the model, as long as my 720 works then I will be happy. It is everything to me. As a financial adviser, I find myself checking everyone's accounts and finances on the 720. It lighter than a laptop, and allows me to be able to whiz it out of my pocket, open it up and get straight onto working my clients account. Once complete it's time to fold it away and in my pocket it goes where it's connected back to my PC for uploading.

USER THOUGHT: HPC Developers and software list - John Ottini
For all of you Handheld PC users who are frustrated by the perceived lack of software, please checkout the article and H/PC developers list I had published in the May 2002 issue of Pocket PC magazine.

http://www.pocketpcmag.com/May02/HPCsoftware.asp
http://www.pocketpcmag.com/May02/HPC_Soft_List.asp

There is a very good possibility that this list will be revised (perhaps on an annual basis) and included in the 2003 Pocket PC magazine - Annual Buyers Guide. I know that it is sometimes frustrating getting stonewalled by a few PocketPC-centric developers, but don't give up contacting other developer and asking about the possiblity of porting their software to the H/PC platform....every once in awhile you will get rewarded and it feels great. This is why it is very important that we support the software developers, who will support us.

USER THOUGHT: Camera thoughts - Jim Goss
I have personally tested the HP Jornada pocket camera (F1869A) (Available on the HP web site) using a PCMCIA to Compact Flash Adapter (purchased separately) and found it to work well considering it does not have a flash, has only a 2X zoom and stores pictures at 640x480.The low light capabilities were satisfactory given that there was at least a 100 watt light bulb in the room lighting the area you wanted to photograph. The instructions were lacking detail and the software was disappointing but the camera it's self worked well. If you are a photographer or if you want a great camera and are willing to spend more than $200.00 then this is not the camera for you. If you want a very small, inexpensive camera that will attach to the end of your Jornada for those Instamatic Moments then this may be what your looking for. Click here for further information.

NEWS: Softmaker beta 2 release - joparp



Remember the SoftMaker Office for Windows CE Handheld PCs (HPC, HPC Pro, HPC 2000), a full-featured word processor, introduced weeks ago on this site. Now, a Beta 2 version has been released for download. This version should be considerably faster, supports HPCs with touchpad or mouse, supports SH4 CPUs (Compaq Aero 8000), several bugs fixed. Other than my beloved HPC Jornada 720, I also have a Compaq Aero 8000 (compared to other HPCs, softwares for SH4 are almost impossible to find these days). Wow, what can I say, now it's possible to use the full word processing features that are missing from the Pocket Word on HPCs, on bigger screen with touch pad, just like a notebook. Word processor is the most important application that I need for my career as a translator, that's why I use the HPCs (which has keyboard) in the first place. This software even make my investment on HPCs more valuable. Awesome!!! This beta version will expire on August 31, 2002. For further details and
download, go to this link: http://www.softmaker.de/anywhere/anyce,en.htm.

UPDATE: The expiry lasts until the 31st August and is a 10,7 MB download - Sammual.

WEBSITE: Using my 720 on the way to the states - Sammual (webmaster)
Well I spent a day travelling over to the states yesterday. flying from London and I managed to catch up on some work, thanks to my trusty 720 which is now charging nicely. I will not apologize for saying that my 720 seems to beat the laptops on the plane for battery power and the quick bootup time. Meaning that whilst my laptop friends were packing away their laptops I was still busy typing away on my 720. Ah the joys of using your Jornada on a seven hour flight across the pond. Anyway, today I wanted to take a look at some great innovative computers that will be hitting the shelves soon that have been brought to our attention. Do not worry will be back to 720 and HPC matters just as soon as you can say 'we have landed at JFK'.

NEWS: Anyone for the 83? - Sammual (webmaster)



Whilst we are on the subject of new handhelds I thoiught I would take a look at the "83" by developers TIQIT. Thats right, thats what it's aclled and its a handheld that run's.............Windows XP. Yep, it's not a HPC product or a Pocket PC, it runs Windows XP. This could potentially blow Pocket PC's out of the water. Again it would be ideal for enterprises but could but I am sure if the price was right then I could see myself going out and ourchasing one. It is a little larger than a Pocket PC and has a 10GB hard disk drive. Prices are not known yet but it's due out later this year. Take a look at these pictures of the 83 here.

NEWS: Skeye Pad - Sammual (webmaster)



We have been keeping an eye on this one for a couple of days. The skeye.pad has no keyboard but has HPC Pro 2000 built in. It's quite cool, but I do not see thew full advantages of using this without a keyboard. It looks more suited to enterprises rather than individual users. Obviously you can connect to the internet and download emails.

"Whatever kind of communication you want to use, the skeye.pad SL opens almost boundless possibilities for you with its most modern slot-technology.

use different wireless technologies like WLAN, Bluetooth, GSM, GPRS, and HSCSD/HSMD.

Different fields of application e.g. enterprise resource planning, logistic and scheduling, disposition (scheduling), customer management, sales force control and patient administration can be optimised with the skeye.pad SL.

In addition, HPC 2000 enables you to make use of the entire spectrum of MS-Pocket Office and MS-Pocket Outlook and to synchronise data with your desktop whenever required..

With the launch of Windows XP the skeye.pad SL can be utilised supplementary to the PC or laptop. Due to the Terminal Server Client the user has at his disposal the complete functional range of Windows XP on his mobile computer with all installed applications on the desktop.

Connection between the Windows XP computer and the skeye.pad SL is realised either via a serial interface or wireless using all common wireless technologies like GSM, DECT, IrDa, Bluetooth or Wireless LAN.

The 900 light-weight skeye.pad SL is operated with a 8.2" TFT colour display via touchscreen and displayed keyboard. The integrated graphics controller ensures of a high clock rate, thus making even long-lasting work with the skeye.pad SL easy and comfortable."

USER THOUGHT: All we need is a camera - Davina Wright
I love my 720 it helps organize my life. It has all the features that I need to juggle my diary events. It helps to sort my finances and keeps me in contact with friends through email. Why take up room with a PC or laptop when you can carry a small lightweight Jornada 720 with you wherever you are. My 720 comes with me everywhere and I must admit that I am lost without. However I do not think the lack of software is a obstacle as I really only use the core programs anyway. However I would like to see a better Instant messaging system something that run smoothly without crashing all the time. In addition it would be nice if there was room to carry a built in camera, as my hobby of photography is something that I enjoy. However I know that it would probably be very unlikely due to the 720 being a little bulky in the first place.

USER THOUGHT: For those that refuse to bring out Handheld software, it is frustrating for those that have then you are all stars - Jan Innes
I have been a 720 user for some time and I must say that it is the best handheld that I have ever used. I am looking forward to the new 728 when it appears, and thing that your site is anh excellent resource. However I am (and I know that I cannot swear) frustrated at the lack of software available. I know that the software that is available at the moment is growing, however how frustrating it is when a developer of Pocket PC software fails to acknowledge your email request for Windows CE software. It is very very frustrating. Does it really cost much more money to port it so that it can be used on a Jornada 720 or any other handheld? Well I am not too sure however one thing is for sure I feel that Windows CE handheld users are hitting their head against a brick wall sometimes. However for those developers that have compiled software for handheld users no matter what software it is I would like to thank you all. You are all example's.

THOUGHT: More on 2GB Cards - Andrew Wolstenholme



In regards to my comments on the 2gb card for the 720 at the tail end of the week, I spotted, this thread from Roy Tummon on the forum, and wanted to post it on the main page as I think it may informative to you all.

"That's what I call service! Yesterday I read Andrew Wolstenholme's note on the Toshiba 2GB PCMCIA card, put an order in with dabs.com and guess what it arrived this morning. Easiest thing I have used -- poke it in the slot and off you go 2 Gigs more memory. I have experienced no problems as yet. It seems to be no different to the onboard memory. It just comes up on the system as "Storage Card 2" - I already use another card - and off she goes. To date I have not loaded any software but do not envisage this as a problem after all these things have been used in desktops for years."

.....thanks Roy for the comments.

EDITORIAL: 728 website updates - Sammual (webmaster)



Well the HP website has more information on the 728. Thanks to Samintharaj Kumar for the information. I took a look at the US site this afternoon, and there seems to be a little more information on the product. The UK site also has a little more information too.



"The HP 728 colour handheld PC is the latest addition to the HP handheld PC range and the most powerful HP handheld PC device to date. In addition, the new HP 728 enjoys a refreshed design, featuring a stylish new bi-tone casing in metallic granite and charcoal.
