Pros:Nice Screen, Light, Small, Modem.
Cons:Battery life, Not visible in bright sunlight, modem speed.
The Bottom Line: Overall I think the 2010C is a fine handheld and is an affordable device for mobile users.
I wanted to buy a laptop for school but I quickly realised that I could not afford one so I decided to buy a handheld instead since I knew I could get one cheaper.
Recommend this product?
I was checking out the Velo 500, the Jornada 690 and the Compaq 2010C. The main thing I was looking for in the handheld was an internal modem so I could email my family without the hassle of the computer lab. I chose the 2010C because it was in color unlike the Velo 500 (had a faster modem too Velo 500 has only a 28.8Kps), and because it was much cheaper than the Jornada 690.
Let's start with the bad stuff.
The unit battery life is way too short it lasted about 1hr 30 mins and although I was almost always close to a power outlet when using it I still found it a great bother having to keep it plugged in most of the time. Altough I had 2 extra batteries I never really bothered to use them since I didn't have and external charger and charging would have to be done in the unit. One good thing is that the battery charges very quickly about 30 mins and using the external chager and some exrtra batteries, it could be a very good unit for executives who need long battery life.
In bright sunlight the screen is virtually un-seeable.
The modem is very slow and can sometimes be frustrating when surfing the net but it is fairly good if you just need to send e-mails.
Now the good.
Once your not in direct sunlight the screen is very nice and adequate for the units use.
Although the unit is not a small as some divices these days its as small as it gets when using typed input and I can type quite well on it although it takes some getting used to.
The processor is fairly fast once you are not using large multimedia files or the modem is not in use.
