  • HP iPAQ 111 Classic Handheld…A Good One?

    Posted on March 28th, 2009 Shawn 2 comments

    Someone in my family is looking to get their hands on a PDA…no smartphone needed. It’s for using electronic medical books on-the-go. I know that the trusty (but now dead) Palm OS used to be great for medical professionals, but in recent years have seen that community move over the Windows Mobile world. My primary care physicians office is now being run with the staff using Windows Mobile PDA’s.

    For me, I’m all about convergence, and would always want the phone integrated in too. But, what about someone that needs this for just the PDA capabilities…and primarily for medical software?

    The HP iPAQ 111 looks like it would fit the bill for someone with this need. Big screen, running WinMo 6.0 (though I’d wish it would have 6.1 instead), has WiFi, has microphone/speaker for recording voice notes, comes with 1GB expansion card (See full specs below).

    What am I missing here? Any issues with this device you know of? If you know of any goods/bads of this thing, please post in comments. The Amazon link at the top of the post will give you all the details.
