pocket pc heaven

at last, i'm yet another pocket pc owner!, it's an HP iPAQ h6315 and i'm in love ;D

i've been playing with this beauty for HOURS right after i spent an hour out my house door by having a pleasant conversation with a dear friend that i know for almost 5 years and just met!, the poor guy was giving me a quick usage tutorial after i gave him my appreciation gift which is an Ubuntu cd cover with a couple of install and live cds in it ;), i got 10 of those a month ago and i've been trying to pass the thing around for anyone who would probably be interested but nvm that now,

i love how the battery on the thing lasts much longer than your local popular pocket pc (aka i-mate!, pity how most devices are usually identified by their maker companies.., you know what i mean),

i was shocked by a few drawbacks though,
  • operating system is Windows Mobile 2003, the i-mate's is 2003 SE (looks pwittier ;P)
  • all your data goes bye bye if you forgot to back it up and tried to replace the battery (i knew about that, but i went nuts when it happened to me cause i thought that the backup battery would do it's thang while i do it quickly or whatever)
  • the sound.., speaker feature of this thing isn't much reliable if it tries to get your attention or the phone rings in public or with surrounding noises
otherwise the thing is pda heaven, bluetooth (duh) AND wifi! WOOHOO free fast internet! (thanks zajil!, don't wanna jinx them and find out they had it removed :P),

the phone feature thingie is weird, i do have a couple of actual call buttons right under the screen, but dialing and finding contacts on the thing is a nag, cause of the sensitive touch screen issue i have to pull the stylus thingie every time to do simple dialing or contact calls, there is a quick contact call feature but i have to set it manually, as in pick the contacts one after another and add them to the list, loya :|

but what the hell, i'm in portable wireless internet software heaven!

btw that boo7a movie, don't waste your money on it, lame jokes and almost nonexistant storylines replaced by crappy sketches instead (you were right symb! :| )

I'm glad you enjoy it, I've had the IPAQ h5555 for a year now and I'm very happy with it, i didn't get the h6315 because of the mobile features as i don't feel like needing them, however i read A LOT (official bookworm) so buying the IPAQ was great, i have over 200 ebooks on it and it's cool having wireless connection :)
