Looking for a Pocket PC

by christy / January 25, 2010 6:47 AM PST

I am looking for a replacement for my iPAQ hx4700. Manufacturers seems to have left the PDA(pocket pc running windows mobil OS) market. Are there still new models PDAs running the Windows Mobile OS [version 6 now ?] out there ? Others like Smart phones, Blue berry, iTouch ....? I would like to be able to use my collection of Windows mobil software, else I would have to purchase new ones.

Thanks.

Limited options...

The selection is dwindling, with many, including Dell, having left the market over the past few years, but some new models are still available. Here in the US, HP is the lone major supplier, offering the iPaq 110 and the iPaq 210. However, the iPaq is overpriced, with WindowsMobile smartphones often offering better functionality and performance at a lower cost, even without the wireless carrier subsidy. Thus, I'd suggest shopping around for an unlocked smartphone, with LG, HTC, Samsung, Acer, Motorola, and others having wide selections.

It's pretty impressive. And not overpriced IMO.

Ok, there is the Craig's List and Ebay route and even Amazon finds WM PDAs. Let the shopping begin.
