Probably the best ipaq yetDec 11, 2007
By R. Maybury I have owned several Pocket PCs, including a few earlier versions of the iPaq. Of the ones I have tried, this is probably the best, though its not a great leap forward. Having WiFi, Bluetooth, SDHC support (previous versions didn't support the new higher capacity cards that this one does - I have an 8Gb SD card in mine), a standard USB connection (previous iPaqs I owned use a proprietary USB connector) a relatively fast processor, the latest version of Windows Mobile all whilst retaining a relatively small form factor is a strong combination. Whilst many will opt for a Pocket PC phone (as my last Windows Mobile device was), having a seperate PDA from your phone has advantages for some e.g. if you are obliged to use a particular mobile phone for work (as I am) then you don't need the phone features on your PDA. With this device I can keep all of my personal contacts seperate from the business contacts on my phone and use the bluetooth feature to get my phone (a Blackberry Pearl) to dial any number I select on my iPaq. I have read other reviews on Amazon and can't say I have experienced any of the problems described. The screen on my iPaq works fine (no odd colours displayed) and windows media player has not yet crashed on my once (and I have listened to quite a lot of music and watched video on it). Overall, not a stunning leap forward but hard to find fault with it.

Good, but could be betterNov 13, 2007
By J. Cooper
I eagerly anticipated the release of the 110 to replace my aging ipaq 4150. It made me appreciate what a great pda that one was. What I like about the 110- -Small size. Not quite as small as the 4150, but very close. It's snug but still fits my Sena case. -Synchronizing with Exchange Server. Email, tasks and calendar sync great. -Build quality. Feels like a quality product and should be pretty durable. -BT and Wifi work well. What I don't like- -WM6 is buggy and slow. It locks up, runs sluggish and I have to soft reset frequently. My WM2003 pda did not have these issues. -More memory would have been nice. -Did not come with a backup program. I'm glad HP came out with a classic(no phone) PDA. It's a great solution for me. I like this unit but I can get things done faster with my old 4150.

Great PDA for the priceDec 08, 2007
By F. Lossio Excellent PDA (or Pocket PC) only one of the few new models that you will see in the market. I use to be a Palm fan but turned to the dark side because there are no new palm PDA models, the Palm TX is 3 year old technology and still sells for the same price. I had this one for over 1 month and is perfect. Connects to the wi-fi internet in cafes fast and easy. I am in the medical field and I store manuals and drug information. I also bought a 2GB SD expansion card where I store all my family pictures and most of the software downloaded. It even comes with a nice leather slipcase. Never need any reset, so far no regrets! The only problem was that my desktop has Windows vista and I bought office 07, but it doesnt come with office outlook 07 that you need for the instalation and is about S/90 in amazon. No problems synchronizing with vista. Good luck.

Excellent value for the priceNov 20, 2007
By Joel DCruz Wife got me the iPaq for my birthday. The box does say 110 - but the HP asset view utility shows the Model ID as "HP iPaq 111 Classic Handheld". Since I have never owned a Pocket PC before it took me a while to find all the software I would need to use (Acrobat Reader for Pocket PC, Google Maps, etc....). Pros (in my short experience): 1. BT and Wireless work great - I prefer transferring files this way - though dont hope to set up WPA PEAP/MSCHAPv2 without a struggle. 2. Office Mobile is a great bonus. Word is quick and responsive - using the registry I use this as a default for most text files. 3. All the free WM5 and WM2003 utilities I have tried so far work just fine on WM 6. 4. I am not a heavy user, but task switching seemed fairly quick and the interface responsive. 5. Handwriting recognition - just awesome (I scrawl)
Cons: 1. Battery life does not seem as great as I would have liked (especially for reading books). 2. Pocket IE (the default browser) is painful. 3. Sometimes switching between the keyboard and the transcriber is a little painful
For those of you who just need a portable device to feel connected this is a pretty good toy!

Great Product - Crappy ServiceDec 14, 2008
By P. Fillmore
I bought this handheld 6 moths ago & loved it - until it stopped working. Specifically, while the handheld worked great, the connector got super erratic - something must have come loose inside. At first I could wiggle the thing around to get it to connect & sync, but when that failed, too, I called HP to make good on their warranty. Their response? Problems with the connector are considered 'physical damage' & no warranty support would be provided. Non-warranty support was available for $50 up front payment (that dosen't apply to the subsequent repair.) If you buy this, MAKE SURE you buy the extended warranty too - because the 'basic' warranty is a joke!
