HP iPAQ 112 PDA replacement needed - any ideas?

by HBPColleen / September 7, 2011 4:19 PM PDT

We previously used HP iPAQ 112 PDA for work as a remote control for a software program and need to replace this as HP no longer make them.
I have been searching for a suitable replacement and think I may need to go to a smartphone or tablet. It needs to have
Windows Mobile,
Large Touchscreen,
WIFI and
PC Synchronisation.

Does anyone know of a product that fills these requirements and is not overly expensive? (the 112 cost around $400-500)

I author some WM apps and made sure they run on a PC as well. Our serial connections are over bluetooth and we use the HTC Touch Pro 2. I think Motorola has some WM machines as well with what they label "True" serial ports for those that need them.

Hope this helps.
