HP fails to bring it

Introducing the HP Ipaq 200 Enterprise Handheld. From the specs this is nothing more than the 3 year old Ipaq 4700 in a new case. Same processor speed, same screen, same RAM, same expansion cards and wireless features. All it seems to bring is more ROM (as required by WM6), a standard USB connector, and more battery capacity. The device is actually a bit thicker and heavier than the 4700, and seems to lack the ATI Imageon graphics chip.

Nothing to see here, move along.

I agree it's not huge deal, but it is a nice replacement for those still using hx4700. Even with the same amount of RAM I bet the 200 will perform better than than 4700 given the change in ROM vs. RAM memory usage in WM5/6. Add in better battery life and USB, seems like a nice bump. And much cheaper than the hx4700.

Watch out George, PocketPC is bound to become this decade's newton... so much promise, so little delivery.
