HP iPAQ Pocket PC HX2790 PDAThe HP iPAQ Pocket PC hx2790 is the perfect handheld computer for the professional who values the combination of the traditional, the familiar, and the versatile in their technological innovations.  The HP iPAQ Pocket PC hx2790 stays true as the classic PDA, but with a different twist. It is designed to offer more than what we have been accustomed to using in this new century, where pets can actually run on batteries and the web is more than a thing we remove from the corners of our ceiling. It performs all the basic functions we need from a PDA, but at the same time offers enough to satisfy our entertainment and business needs.  

Tradition Reinvented:

Let’s start first with its simple, no-nonsense design. The HP iPAQ Pocket PC hx2790 has rounded corners with protective rubber inserts for extra grip. Obviously, it is basically designed to be durable and withstand abuse. It also has a sturdy frame and case, and like its predecessors, still comes with a protective plastic cover to protect the screen.  The HP iPaq hx2790′s 3.5-inch screen shines clearly and vividly enough to see in many different conditions, and is capable of 65,536 colors via QVGA (240×320) resolution. 

Hot Keys, Expansion Ports, and Flash Media

This wonderful PDA has four instant-start application buttons just below the screen for quick and easy use, and its integrated biometric fingerprint reader helps protect data and prevent unwanted access to the system. Its security is also enhanced with HP ProtectTools software secured by Credant Technologies. On top of the device, users will find slots for their flash memory. The HP iPaq hx2790 is equipped with both Secure Digital and CompactFlash slots which accept even the slightly thicker CompactFlash flash-based hard drives.

If you’re one of those young, savvy professionals who like listening to music, this product will do you a lot of good as it has a standard headphone jack located next to the card slots. Flash memory slots and headphone jacks are just the tip of the iceberg. The HP iPaq hx2790 has a top-speed 624MHz Intel XScale processor along with 256MB of memory, and boasts Microsoft Windows Mobile 5 Operating System. Not only does it have the pocket versions of a more enhanced Word, Excel, Internet Explorer and Outlook, but a nifty Powerpoint viewer, as well. 

802.11b Wi-Fi Connectivity

Aside from these traditional and versatile features, the HP iPaq hx2790 also boasts of the familiar, as it comes with both Wi-Fi (802.11b) and Bluetooth radios, like many PDAs do today. Additionally, it has a Serial IR port to easily exchange data with other Serial IR enabled devices. Last but not the least, when it comes to battery life and performance, the HP iPAQ Pocket PC hx2790 outlasts the rest of the competition. Its 1440 mAh removable/rechargeable battery has been tested to work for more than 5 hours of continuous use.
