Continue reading for intimate details on this phone, and to find out what makes it work.
The standard operating system, for this unit, is Windows Mobile for Pocket PC (2003 Edition), which provides users with numerous desktop applications (Pocket Word, Excel, Outlook, Internet Explorer, and Windows Media Player) – right at their fingertips. Additionally, HP has integrated ProtectTools, Credant, and VPN- and WEP enhanced security for a higher level of security on your new PDA. The backbones, of the iPaq hx2750, offers stable performance with its Intel 624MHzXscale processor and 128MB RAM, along with WiFi, Bluetooth, and Serial IR connectivity.
Standard available memory, on this unit, is 192MB; however, there is plenty of room for growth with additional CompactFlash and SDEO / MMC slots available. SpeedStep and Wireless MMX technologies have been tightly integrated, into the iPaq hx2750, in hopes of prolonging battery life in addition to enhancing multimedia performance.
With a 624MHzXscale processor, 128MB RAM, and Microsoft Windows Mobile (Pocket PC 2003 Edition), WiFi, Bluetooth, and Serial IR – your new pocket PC is ready to use, right out-of-the-box. You immediately have access to a number of applications, like Pocket Word, Excel, Outlook, and even Internet Explorer. In addition, Credant software, ProtectTools, VPN- and WEP-enhanced security offer state-of-the-art security, and are ready for use when you open the box.
As great as this all sounds, there is a minor setback with the price of the unit – averaging around $ 549. The sticker price, on the iPaq hx2750 makes this PDA more accessible by the business market rather than typical consumers. There are a number of options, for PDA’s, on the market that consumers can fit into their budgets a little easier than this one.
HP integrated their SpeedStep and Wireless MMX technologies in hopes in increasing the battery life, between charges, on the iPaq hx2750. Unfortunately it does not appear as though this has happened. The longest stretch of battery life appears to be around 4 1/2 hours. This is only if wireless and all other applications are turned off. Granted, the battery life on any Pocket PC is not extensive.
PDA’s vary in size, but typically, are bigger than a typical cell phone. The iPaq hx2750 measures in at 4.7″ x 3″ x 0.6″ and weighs around 5.8 ounces. In addition, that rubber grip that helps to grip and protect the phone, adds to the overall size of the phone. All-in-all, this pocket PC is not one of the smallest out there, and by appearance alone, appears to be a bit bulky (not so much that it is obtrusive).
HP continues to build and introduce great products, and they have not stopped with the introduction of the iPaq hx2750. The technologies and features, available in this unit, are unbelievable, and are a great buy for those who need a PC that can fit in their pocket. Even though it appears that this unit was designed for the business world, consumers can benefit as well.
