HP iPaq Pocket PC H3950

The Good Terrific screen; XScale processor; built-in Secure Digital card slot; fits existing iPaq sleeves; consumer IR; nice software bundle.

The Bad Expensive; no built-in CompactFlash card slot.

The Bottom Line The H3950 has lots of things to recommend it--especially its screen--but it's overpriced.

Review

HP iPaq Pocket PC H3950

Compare HP's iPaq H3950 to the company's iPaq H3835, and you'll notice two important upgrades: a new, transflective LCD and the faster Intel XScale processor, which runs at 400MHz instead of 206MHz. That's all well and good, and we expected a price bump for these improvements. Unfortunately, the $649 H3950 is not only expensive, but it costs slightly more than competing products such as Toshiba's e740, which has more features, including Wi-Fi connectivity. Cosmetically, the H3950 looks identical to its 3800-series brethren. At 6.5 ounces, it's fairly compact but not as lightweight as Toshiba's e310 or Razor's Zayo A600. Like the 3800-series, this handheld has a sleek, silver case and a dark-plastic bulge at the top of the screen that houses the speaker and the Secure Digital (SD) card slot.
