And the final decision is…
…the HP ipaq hx2495!
Review & Specs from ZDNet
Shawn let me fiddle around with his ipaq and it is awesome.
A few points that sold me:
*ALOT smaller than I thought a pocket pc could be
*The back is rubberized for better grip
*Fast without sacrificing memory or battery
*SO easy to work with since its OS is Windows
*Good battery life but battery is user-replaceable if need be
*Comes with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Word, Excel, Power Point, Voice Recorder, Windows Mediaplayer
*Can easily tell where you’re at in terms of batterry, memory, etc
*Recharge in a cradle, not just plug in
*Comes with plastic cover, don’t have to get that separately
*Can tailor transcription to your style of writing, ie if you write crooked
Personal Note: 1 hour circuit training & 2 dogwalks vs pasta & LOTS of alcohol
