Quick Take: With the new iPaq rx3000 series, HP lightens the mood by deviating from the standard PIM features of PDAs and adding more digital entertainment capabilities. Similar to the rx3715, the rx3115 comes equipped with software that lets you manage digital music, photos, and videos on PCs throughout your home via a Wi-Fi wireless network, but it lacks a built-in camera. Its multimedia functionality won't be for everyone, but at the heart of the device is a high-performance PDA with a host of great features. The rx3115 won't be available till the fall, and pricing has yet to be determined, but for a closer look at what's to come, check out CNET's review of the iPaq rx3715.
