    HP iPAQ 2210 Pocket PC Review
    Author: Daniel Topler
    Date Posted: August 30th, 2003
    SLRating: SLRating: 9.5/10
    Bottom Line: The HP iPAQ 2210 is small, well designed and shiny! On top of that it packs in a big load of features, and yet HP still manages to make it priced so that an average business user, or even your average Joe can go pick one up at their local CompUSA, read all about it in our official review....

    When testing performance, I had to decide to benchmark or not. I ended up deciding not to for a few reasons. First of all, there arenít really any programs on the Pocket PC that are that CPU reliant. Second, pretty much all Pocket PCís with matching CPUís perform the same, and third, I do not have any comparison results from another PDA.

    Battery Life

    When using various programs, such as Pocket Word, Solitaire, and Calendar, battery life died in about 4 hours and 35 minutes, which is very impressive. Keep in mind this is using the full screen brightness setting.


    It is actually very easy to sync data from and to the PDA. Once you have the cradle set up, youíll need to install both ActiveSync, as well as Microsoft Outlook (2002 is included, but any version should be OK). Both are included on the CD.

    Once you set up ActiveSync correctly, once you place the PDA on the cradle, the computer will take all your e-mails, contacts, calendar entries, tasks, etc. from your Outlook data file and dump them on the PDA. Donít worry, if you donít want a specific item (such as your Inbox), you can always remove it from the sync list.

    When adding documents, files, additional programs, etc, you donít use Outlook or ActiveSync. Instead, you go to My Computer, Explorer, or whatever program you use, and just go to the "Mobile Device," which is automatically added when your PDA is detected. From here, you can easily transfer files back and forth from PDA to computer. The computer will need to transfer files to a specific PDA-compatible format, however.

    The cradle uses USB 1.1, which can be a pain when uploading big files to the PDA (or the extra memory in your Compact Flash or SM/MMC slot). It took quite some time to get my partial music collection on my 128MB CF card. But, since the device has a limited amount of memory, the wait isnít significant.
