If you are looking for a new Pocket PC, you've come to the right place. The HP iPAQ is definately a first class product.
The looks hardly need describing, see for yourself... it's beautiful. The simple design and smooth curves complement this fantastic device greatly. When I took it out of the box for the first time I could hardly believe how small and light it is. You hardly realise it is in your pocket!
When you first turn it on you have to select various options (time, date, language etc.) but as soon as you have done that you are greeAted with the standard Windows interface (all of which is customizable). The programs included are the basic ones: Word, Excel, Media Player, Activesync and games like Solitaire and Jawbreaker (a personal favorite).
Playing the included games really shows off the incredibly fast processing speed and the response time which this device can achieve.
The built in speakers sound OK however using headphones with it is highly recommended.
The iPAQ can also be used as an MP3 and Video player (through the Windows Media interface, or using a separately installed program) which has a super-fast response time (no jitters) and pretty good quality (it depends really on the quality you encoded it in).
The Wifi, Bluetooth and Infra-red are excellent, many PDA's do not have these, let alone all three!
Through Wifi (and Bluetooth) the internet can be accessed, as well as instant messaging (via the pre-installed MSN Messenger). However, the pages are somewhat small and images cannot be copied and 'pasted' (normal internet downloads work well though)
The battery life is good (enough to watch a movie and a half on it) however it does run out quicker than on other models.
The PDA includes other functions such as voice recording, picture editing and viewing, SD interface and handwriting recognition, all of which perform excellently.
Included (amongst other things) are a USB cable, dock, case and charger, however an SD card should be bought separately as the built in memory (64mb) is fine for basic use however not enough for music, pics, videos etc.
All in all, the H4150 is a fantastic machine, well worth the money, beautiful in every aspect and has served me well for the past 2 and a half years and I hope yours will too!
