I bought this HP IPAQ 2215 WITH extended warrant in April 2004 to replace the Palm Vx. Incidentally, I've owned 5 versions of Palm handhelds since first introduced. They were well built. For the most part, I like the HP IPAQ.
Recommend this product?
It took some getting used to but I enjoyed the new Windows interface. It's fast and seamless with Windows desktop and I didn't experience nearly the contacts overwrite mistakes that I did with Palm OS. Then I make the big NO-NO. I bought a custom wallet and put Velcro on back of the flimsy IPAQ case, including the battery cover. It stopped working when I pulled it off the FIRST time from this wallet. I sent it to HP repair; verdict: "battery cover not covered under warranty;" COST: 146.00!!!! OUCH!! On second thought, I made a mistake thinking that these products were worth the upgrade.
I'm back in Palm again. Lesson learned: HP makes very flimsy case covers. Be VERY careful where and how you store and carry HP IPAQ 2215. The battery cover is critically fragile.
Amount Paid (US$): 399.00
