Simply great PDA
This is about my 10th PDA; my last one is the iPAQ 4700. The 4700 uses Mobile 5.0, which is another one of Microsoft's big mistakes, and was soon replace with Mobile 6.0. Version 6.0 corrects all the issues more or less with 5.0. If you are use to Windows CE software you will have little problems learning 6.0. The main improvement is the Mobile 6.0 takes advantage of the speed of the CPU and nice design of this iPAQ 111. The screen and button functions all work well without hesitation. Wi-Fi is great. This PDA is small and light weight, but the screen is a nice size. I found it easy to read since my eyes aren't the best anymore. The speaker is not good for listening too much of anything, but fortunately the headphone jack is a standard one, so you can easily plug in a set of head phones or external speakers.
I used Audilbe.com software and that has installed easily and works fine. I installed a 4gigbyte SD card, and have stored over 10 full length audible books on to it, and still have plenty of room for added storage. This PDA is very light compared to my 4700, and that is a big bonus. So I have the same performance of an $800.00 PDA, but with a much improved OS, light in weight and very light in price.
I am a Prime Amazon member, and for just $4.00 more I got over night shipping. The product has a USB cable, and an AC power supply for faster charging than the USB. Amazon also offers a cradle-charger, which I recommend. There are two types of cradles. One is your basic cradle and the other will hold another battery and charge it, along with being a cradle. I use a nice software program that displays a full screen size clock, and I use the cradle/PDA as a holder. Thus I have an easily to read bedside clock.
I use this PDA at work, I am a health care provider, so I am constantly referencing to software that I have purchased. So the small size and easy to read screen, along with over all speed and storage is all a very welcome change from my large iPAQ 4700.
I know the trend is to have a PDA with a phone, but I personally haven't found one that combines both features well. I use Outlook and since the OS is Microsoft, the syncing to my computer using WinXP is just easy and complete. All the changes I made during the day are transferred to my Outlook on my desktop computer and vice versa. So not only do they keep in sync, but I always have a backup of my Outlook on my PDA. With the Wi-Fi I can be anywhere in my home and connect to my email or the internet quickly and securely and no added cost.

Replaced my Palm
By Kindle Customer
After almost four years, my Palm finally died. I used it ALL THE TIME so I needed to replace it immediately. Apparently, Palm doesn't make hanhelds anymore, just smartphones which I didn't want. So I found this. I neede one that would run MobiPocket as I wasn't looking forword to converting my almost 600 e-books. (Yes I am a nerd)
This handheld does all I ask of it, as well as a bunch of things I don't know how to work yet, and it was a very reasonable price. Windows Mobile has quite a few programs you can buy to add on to it although I haven't bought any yet.
Service through HP seems to be quite good; I called them and asked a few questions and they were happy to answer.
I do like this quite a bit....but I still missed my Palm.

HP(HTC) Ipaq 111 Windows Mobile 6 Pocket PC AKA "Windows Mobile Classic Device"
By Kirk J. Stefanski
This is what's still widely referred to as a "PDA" "Pocket Pc" or. Bluetooth and WIFI capability allow you to access data without...err...a "data plan" I was able to sync my GMAIL inbox with it in almost no time. There is also a functional, though not extensive Facebook app. Google maps works pretty well on it.
Reasons I prefer this device to an IPHONE: I had neither the need nor desire to have telephonic capability from the device. Let my phone be my phone. Included charger is a USB to AC/power adapter. The unit also charges through a regular USB connection to PC,which means you can take it to any computer and exchange data through the common and prevalent USB standard. The IPAQ is expandable up to 32 Gigs I believe, through the side located SD/SDHC card slot. There are many applications available. The file format is .CAB, i.e. "cabinet files" which appear as zipped or rarred compressed folders when you view them on a PC. Executable Cab programs are diverse. There's organizers, wifi sniffers, several internet browsers, text and ebook readers for most major formats, several PDF readers, specialized programs for engineering and data, image editing, rudimentary CAD, and I have no doubt that specific and or proprietary software has been written for specialized applications for your organization.
The Operating System(OS) is Microsoft Windows Mobile 6. It has been described that the unit is capable of running Linux though there are more opportune devices of this type for that functionality I believe. You will perhaps want to customize it with more intuitive file and menu structure cab files as some of the interface elements are written in a less than intuitive fashion, but that's a matter of preference. The standard menus are usable.
If you find yourself in many locations all at once you can certainly pair a bluetooth keyboard with it and type up reports on the fly.
I stood at the local Microcenter, in my hand an example of the unit I had just ordered(prior to having received it), suddenly a bit dismayed when I gazed at the screen of its next model up- the 211. The 211 has a 640x480(VGA)resolution, while the 111 is only 320x240(1/4 of or'QVGA') That's my only major gripe about the 111, and QVGA isnt horrible by any stretch for most tasks. That...and...bummer...no GPS unless you connect an external module. Also,this is an older unit from 2007 so there was no reason to pay full retail for it.
Oh...let me excuse myself...the BATTERY LIFE is pretty horrid. I would suggest plugging it into the wall if you're going to do something like read text on it for an extended period of time. I paired the device,charger, USB cord, and a few SD cards with a small bag from lowepro that was made for a digital point n shoot camera because i like to keep equipment and all vital accessories in the same case.
All in all I'm very pleased with the unit. Plays music of course. Great for students. There's a whole lot that it can do. Places like Staples and Bestbuy have for some screwball reason stopped carrying PDAs alltogether! Idiots! Theyre so frickin usefull. There are a slew of PDAs available out there from several good manufacturers, many of them with telephonic capability. They are not "smartphones"...they are PDAs, and it's a good market share for specialized applications in my esteem. Oh well.
