New iPAQ device details coming out

Official details are now coming out on the new iPAQ Pocket PC devices and you can find many links over at the iPAQ HQ site. I have to say I am very disappointed in the high prices HP is charging for devices that the Dell Axim X30 beats at around $300. The only HP device that is reasonably priced is the new 6315 Phone Edition at $600. However, it only has 64MB of RAM and a slow processor (according to benchmark results). The slower processor gives it quite a battery life though and may be worth the tradeoff.

I think I will stick with my MDA II as my primary device that does it all and has very impressive specs. The X30 that Dell gave me to review and keep can serve as my WM2003 Second Edition device.

    Hey Matt,
    Who makes the MDAII?

    The MDA II is manufactured by HTC in Taiwan. They are the company that has made most of the previous and current, not the newly announced (I don’t think) iPAQ devices. Their devices are usually the highest quality Pocket PCs. The MDA II is old in Germany by T-Mobile and is the same as the XDA II, iMate Phone Edition, and QTEK 2020. You can find these at US electronics import sites,, Expansys, and other places. I read somewhere that the price has dropped down on these from $800-$850 down to less than $700.
