EDITORIAL: The Jornada 700 series may have come to an end but I am sure that it will not be the end of handheld computers. There is still a market outthere for handhelds. We know this because our site receives so many emails per week from employers and businesses that are looking to purchase handhelds are looking to find where they can purchase a 700 or 728. So why do we see the end of handheld production in sight. Well according to reliable sources the manufacturing of the Jornada 700 series handheld has now been ceased. Many of you think that from day one, HP have let users down./ There has been little support, may complain of customer service support, especially where broken handhelds have been involved. To be honest I am talking personally, I have not had any problems with my 728, and touch wood I will continue to be trouble free, but I can imagine and have been in the same position as many of you out there when dealing with complaints and yes it’s so frustrating. Many of you have emailed in to say that you have been out investing in a second handheld, whether its been a 720 or a 728, but we all know that stock is dwindling in the shops so if you see one, grab it, I can imagine that a second stock will be unlikely. Looking on the bright side, we have a community here of bright, intelligent handheld users who support the community day in, day out. We have some great software out there and whatever you’re looking for I am sure that you are bound to find it. My point is this. The production line may well be over but the community is just as strong.

I went out and managed to find a 728 from the depot. I guess I am lucky, I already have a 720, and wanted one as a back up.

I read a while ago that you had to be careful if you wanted to take your handheld abroad with you. My example and I am sure this was the same experience one of our fellow user’s experienced, sand under the stylus. Ensure that you are careful if you take your handheld / laptop to the beach. A grain of sand causes chaos and can scratch the screen. In addition if you get sand caught in the keyboard it can be a bugger to remove and really does some damage. My word of caution is do not take your handheld to the beach, and if you do ensure its fully protected.

EDITORIAL: No updates yesterday becacuse of that silly virus thhat was going round. Well the good news is that my internet connection is working a damm lot faster than it was yesterday thank goodness. Anyway yesterday afternoon I was in London and managed to retrieve my emails in the evening. Imagine this, I was treated by a freind of mine to travel on the London Eye, for those that do not know what it is its a large Ferris wheel that sits on the bank of the River Thames, with great views over the city. Well I managed to email two of my friends within minutes to tell them about the experience. Goodness knows why but I am one opf those people that like to use their 720 wherever they are.
- Sammual (webmaster)

Quickies:
Having just come back from Canada on holiday, it's the ability to stay in touch and send virtual postcards from wherever you are simply using my J728. I need not take a laptop, the J728 is the best resource to take whilst on holiday and allows you to send portable images and use them as virtual postcards.
- GW

I have no plans to convert over to the Pocket PC, great that it may seem, I need something small, lightweight and most of all it needs a keyboard. I wanyt something I can type on. A Pocket PC does not have this ability and in addition if you need a keyboard you have to go out and purchase a third party one and I need one thats full size not a small thumb only one. I'm staying with my Jornada 728.

SITE NEWS: I have tweaked the look of the site. The main news fonts were ever so large and ugly, not too sure if they are now too small. If however you think they are email me and I will look at changing it if enough of you think the font is too small. In addition I have laced the Forum link at the top of the page for those who visit us on PDA screens like I know a lot of you do. I know I promised to do this last week but tme had got the better of me this week.

SITE NEWS: Goodness I think I am almost back to life after the bith of my Godson earlier this week. Anyway the site will run back to normal now.

By the way thanks for the pieces for our quickies section. Remember that I do need to edit them so they obviously will not be in full format.

Quickies
I have a Jornada 720, purchased a second 720 just in case my present 720 breaks down on me. In spite of the end of the production line for the 700 series I believe that there will still be many users to come in the future as the 700 series handheld is a reliable friend.
- JL

I agree with those who are outraged with the ending of the J728. It reminds me of the Psion range of handheld. Killed at their peak. Such a brilliant handheld but with cheaper alternatives it was not going to be long before the end was here. Oh well, I don't see myself jumping to the Pocket PC camp yet, I am sticking with my J728.
- RS

Found an excellent use for my 720. Don't take this as my principle reason but the 720 is excellent as a shopping list and I cross off everything that I need to shop for and in short this allows me never to forget anything.

USER THOUGHT: Great servive
Last weekend (January 13th) my J728 got berzerk; the screen couldn't be calibrated anymore and the keyboard was as dead as a doornail. So I did a soft reset, a hard reset, some repeatedly, but to no avail.

Monday (January 14th) I called HP service desk in Amsterdam and they promised me to come and pick up the device for repair in England. The guy at the phone warned me that this could take a while before I could get my device back, because it was out of production and spare parts would have to be shipped from Malaysia or Indonesia. The repair centre itself was located in England. Bye bye Jornada ...

Tuesday DHL came by and delivered me an empty box (don't you love that, getting an empty box?), the coffin for my Jornada. I packed everything, including all those incomprehensible labels and pouches and stuff, called DHL again and, I guess they must've been roaming around in the neighbourhood or something, they 'tingelinged' (*) at my doorstep again within half an hour. I handed over the sad little coffin and all I could do was wait for a couple of months.

This morning (Friday, Januari 18th), the doorbell rang again (see footnote), and there was that DHL courier again with that same sad little coffin. My first thoughts were, 'oh no, I must've misplaced those stupid labels or something', but to my utmost surprise, there was my Jornada again with a brand new screen and a brand new keyboard and a short note inside, saying that my Jornada got a brand new screen and a brand new keyboard (sic) and that my little Jornada had passed all tests after repair (I knew he could do it).

Two thumbs up for HP England and DHL and for my little Jornada, which happens to be newer than new.

(*) Yes, I have an antique doorbell

Debon says that she is in love with her 728, "It took a lot of consideration to go out and puyrchase the 728, well last week, I did just that and purchased one. I read a lot of opinions from this site and it seemed the sensible thing to do. Although HP have given up on us, there is still enough of a community to nhelp out when there are problems. Thanks to the users"

Ryan sends this note. "Althought the 700 series is now dead, we will be like the Apple Newton and keep on going. It's great to see Handheld Addict continue to keep the community alive. The Newton has still a large fan base and it would be just as good to see the Jornada range and other HP's continue to have a community for years to come"

Steven from Ohio says: "I saw the plug for Otterbox and have to admit it is the best case for HPC's. I have had mine for nine months and believe me I've dropped it on the floor before now. But yet the Otterbox keeps on keeping it safe. Well reomended!

USER ADVICE : If HP is abandoning the Handheld (clamshell) platform - what are your options?
If the rumored demise of the Jornada 728 turns out to be true and you are not interested in switching to a Pocket PC or perhaps a new MobilePro (1st Qtr 2003), then it's time for you to start thinking about the future. If you are planning to keep your 728 functioning for many more years (as I suspect many of you will) , then I believe it's time for you to start purchasing the extra accessories (batteries, cables etc) which you will need to prolong the life of your Jornada. Don't make the mistake of assuming that hese items will always be available in the future (even if HP tells you that they will support your Jornada into the forseeable future), recent H/PC history has shown this to untrue. HP (or any other manufacturer) will move on to there latest gizmo and you will be stuck with the missing pieces. I had an article published last year in Pocket PC magazine that you might find useful - here is the link. http://www.pocketpcmag.com/Jul02/tenways.asp Take it from someone who's been there - plan ahead and you won't be disappointed.

Here are some of your thoughts on what Handheld computers you guys have used:

USER THOUGHT: Hello Sammual, your site is beatiful! I own a jornada 720 that I have purchased in may 2001, I like Jornada, every day is with me! When I have read in your site that jornada will be discontinued ... I have purchased immediately a Jornada 728 from expansys. I hope that HP-Compaq ... will release another handheld in the future ! Thanks a lot for your work.
- Michele, Milan - Italy

USER THOUGHT: Bought the 710 over the 720 as it was much cheaper at the time, £299. I have been using it constantly now for about 6 months and can honestly say it is one of the nicest pices of kit I have used. Like most people I am a certified gadget freak, but what else out there can let me browse the net with a bluetooth phone while on the train (10 hours of train journey every other weekend),while still letting me write an email (this one) on a decent keyboard. It still fits in a coat pocket and does't require me to re-mortgage my house to own one ;-)

If anything, although I have verry little programming experience, it may give me a kick to start writing my own programs if the development for it stops. BTW, congratulations on a highly useful and informative web site. Long may it continue.
- Ross

USER THOUGHT: Yes....I have a Jornada680, but am looking closely at the 728(price). I just can't understand why people don't find the handhelds better than Pocket PC---other than more software, it has the best of both worlds(laptop & PPC). I am still hoping that HP will bring out a new OS for handhelds & revive them. I work for the BNSF railroad & spend lots of time away from home. The weight of the 680 is just right--not too heavy, but just enough extras to satisfy my surfing habits away from home. I really never use it at home, as I have a good desktop. I may look into the new Dell cheapie at $199 for towing around town in my purse. At least it would be able to use the compact flash I bought for the 680. The powers that be at BNSF have chosen the Palm OS as their default system, so I use the Mobipocket reader for all the rulebook files I have to keep with me on the job.  
 - Patricia Young

USER THOUGHT: I started off with an HP 95LX, then HP100LX then an HP200LX before moving (backwards!) to an HP620 then finally coming to my senses with an HP720 (which I can use to emulate the HP200 via Pocket DOS!). I also have in my office a small museum of HP calculators I have owned or been donated in the past. Included is a VERY rare example of an early HPC (?maybe), an HP75C. I suspect it is one of just a few in the UK.
- David Burrows

USER THOUGHT: Jornada 728. Jornada 710 and Tosh E540 PPC. The 728 wins hands down for screen size. I need to view floor plans of 100 underground stations which as PDFs take up about 180 MB. Acrobat Reader is now my killer app for quickly searching and viewing. Database content too is far superior on the 728 screen in comparison with PPC - favourite dB app is Visual CE - I can cram loads of info on.

SITE NEWS: OK, I think I am done with the site tweaking. It's taken me all day but I am pleased with the look and it looks fine to me especially with Apple's new internet browser Safari, which was causing problems, now the new design fixs this. The links are now on the right hand side of the page, and all the news content is there as usual. Anyone that use's Apple's new Internet browser Safari, (which you can read more details here on my Apple Mac website) should see the site in normal mode.

USER THOUGHT: I'm from Vienna, Austria and use a J720. I've had some Handheld devices before: Psion Revo, Palm, Toshiba e570 PocketPC and the Ericsson MC218, which is in fact a Psion 5. I liked the Psion machines a lot, but since there is nothing more new to expect from EPOC, I bought the J720 and I am very happy with it. I do not use it as a calendar, but more as a substitute for a laptop: Using Word and Excel, storing important data, sending and receiving email and surfing the web via gprs or wlan. The best thing about this machine is that all the programmes function very reliable e.g. the J720 is the first device which is able to surf the web in a reasonable way, I can even access online banking. I am not going to upgrade for the J728, because it is the same machine with more memory, which is regardless to me, because of the possibility to use Compact Flash Cards, I do also like the elegant blue colour of the J720 more than the grey one of the J728, which is of course a matter of taste. The additional Programmes I like most are: pocketTV for Video-Playback (too expensive!), Peacemaker for Infrared Communication, eWallet for storing important data, and some more like SpaceFinder, TascalSearch, Mobipocket Reader, Primer PDF Reader (too expensive, very slow!), Conversions In Hand etc. My favorite accessory is the Nokia d211 gprs/wireless LAN-PC card, which works very fine with the J720. I can truly recommend the J720, even for the software range: It is not that much , but the stuff that is available is very useful and good. If my J720 is going to break someday, I will replace it as soon as I can.

NEWS: We featured on Pocket PC Thoughts earlier on Friday with our 'RIP' story on the Jornada 728. You can read about it here on the Pocket PC Thoughts site and on its forum pages here.
- Sammual (webmaster)

SITE NEWS: Believe it or not I receive something in the region of 30 - 45 emails per day from you guys and I read them all honestly and I thank you for them, however one email stuck out especially. I will not reveal the named source but below is the wording:

"Now that HPC's will no longer be produced will you be shutting down the site and focusing on Pocket PC efforts?"

I am going to be honest with you now. I have been running this site for goodnerss knows how long. I first put some sort of a very very basic HPC / Psion page in 1999, and it went full time HPC in 2000. It's now 2003, I have no intention of calling it a day with this site. There are a number of reasons, they include that I ENJOY putting this site together. You make FRIENDS easily, you guys are great and most importantly there is more of a NEED now than at any time before. So the answer to the readers email is we will keep the site exactly as it is, no changes, no other operating system being covered. Handheld Addict will remain as it always has been, with all the spelling mistakes, poor english etc, no seriously............ your choice for Handheld news and reference.

SITE NEWS: Those who use the new Apple web browser 'Safari' will not be able to view the site very well. I am aware of it and have sent a 'bug report' to Apple, in the meantime the site will be going through a 'revamp' over the forthcoming weeks. We are beta testing the site being run in a new template at the moment. We just have to transfer all the data over. Read more about it in the weeks ahead. Needless to say, us Safari users will have to bear with the problem for just a short while longer. By the way I love the new Safari web browser. Read more about it on my Apple Mac website here.

NEWS: Not suprising to see many of you use a J680, as so many of you have emailed in as part of the survey. Good news is that we now have over 800 emails and have a better idea of what HPC's you guys use. At the present time the 720 is bar far in the lead and I will publish the final figures in what has been this site's biggest survey to date. There is still time to email me the HPC you use, just send me an email, with the model type in the subject line, if you wish to add additional comments then please include them within the body of the email.
- Sammual (webmaster)

YOUR THOUGHTS: Again, and this is not suprising, many of you have emailed into me to say how disapointed you are that the HP line of handheld computers has now ended with the final model being the 728. What a history. However we do not know what is around the corner needless to say that I still have hope and there are many of you who share this. Johnny Walker from Glasgow, in a very cold Scotland, says "I have used a HP handheld for the last eight years and it's never let me down. It's sad that it has come to the end of the line, but my 728 and 720 will last I hope, for many years to come" Well said Johnny. Paul Thurows says "It's like the end of the Psion range, well built computers, ideal for today, with production cut well short - it's a crying shame" Continue to email me your thoughts and I will post them over the weekend.

NEWS: According to undisclosed sources, the Jornada 728 has now been officially discontinued. I know that many of you have emailed in to say that your local electrical stores have limited stock. It's a real shame and at the moment there seems to be no official word of any sort of replacement.

SURVEY (SO FAR):Oh my word, my email inbox has been busy, 427 emails in the last 24 hours, yep 427 emails. Many thanks to he response. The question asked to the survey I set last night was

What HPC do you currently own?

So far it seems like most of you have a 720, however, yes, there are many of you with a 728. I'm waiting to get to the 1,000 mark before I start putting percentages on these figures so if you have not sent in your answer to the question, why not? Email what HPC you use in the subject line and send the email (if you want to add more detail to the body then thats great) to me atsammymcloughlin@mac.com. I will publish resuls and comments this weekend.
- Sammual (webmaster)

NEWS: Just to inform people who would like to have a radio Card (FM201) available for their Jornada 720 (or 710, 728), that I have almost conviced "Prolink"
to create a driver for our machines. Have a look at:
http://www.prolink.com.tw/new_web/products/network/FM201.htm

But you have to send an email at:
andy_yang@serv.prolink.com.tw

in order for them to see that there is a real interest from HPC2000 users. So interested people, please write him.

Here are the email I exchange with Andy (from prolink):

********************************
Dear Andy,

Sorry to bother you again, but does the DC201 digital camera card may work on the Jornada 720 using the HP driver for the HP pocket camera.

Really any chance to see FM201 for the HPC2000 ?

Thanks and regards
Henri
**************************************
Dear Henri:

Sorry for my delay. We will push our RD to port our Radio for Jornada 720. I will give me the schedule on Friday. I need you can give me
information that how many user use Jonada 720 in US. What's our benefit to develop a driver for you. Just as your know, our RD resource is limited, we
have to arrange our RD schedule to develop the most popular project.Many thanks for your understanding.

As for DC201, there are some mold issue need to resolve, so we postpone to release this product. I don't have any plan to develop a driver for
Jonada720 before we finish this product.Thanks!

Andy

EDITORIAL: Firstly how quick has the New Year gone so far? Amazingly quick in my opinion. Yep thats right we are all back in work. I wanted to do a survey that I have never thought of doing so before and I know my inbox is going to be flooded but I dont mind. Simple question lets see what HPC you guys own. The question this week is simple:

What HPC do you currently own?

Email me here or at sammymcloughlin@mac.com. In the subject line,put what HPC you own, whethner its a Jornada 720 or whatever. Additional comments can be placed in the main body section of the email. I'll post the results later this week. Lets see what you guys have and how many emails I get. I hope my mac email address is ready ;-)

USER THOUGHT: Thanks for providing a brilliant website. I just wanted to say that when I went into visit my local vendor, they had no idea what a Jornada 720 was, EVEN THOUGH, there was one instore and on display. They knew little about its functions. What it was supposed to do, in fact you name it, they knew nothing about it. Is it me, or should there not be better training for those that sell us handheld computers? What do you think? Well it's not for us to make up our minds. If HPC want better sales then they should invest in better training for sales people.

GIVE AWAY:
This month as it's the beginning of a New Year, we are going to give away, not one, (here is the build up - get ready), not two, but three, yes three!!!!!! Keyboard protector skins for your Handheld. However in order to win these skins I want you to answer, in your own words!!!! hehe, the following caption / phrase, as witty as possible would be great.

RESOURCE: Chris has been in contact, webmaster of the excellent ce320 site, he has a number of excellent updates to his site which you can read about in our new regular "HPC Website round up" feature below. By the way thanks to everyone thats emailed me to say that it's a great feature.
