Pros: Looks great

THE replacement for the Ipaq 4700hx
Cons: The micro USB connector - why not the mini?
the lack of a stylus for the more intricate stuff
no transcriber handwriting recognition
Changing settings, and finding applications and enabling and disabling features is a bit cumbersome.
Summary: This is the device that I have been waiting for years to replace my Ipaq Hx4700.
The screen size is large enough to be a realistic mobile office and media viewer.
It has ALL the features you can think of and several more besides.
It is stunningly good looking and feels great, and it is a very capable tool. All of it's features work properly. It is not lacking in the way many of the other comparable devices do. Yes, it can be a bit of a long winded process to get the best out of the device, the operating system and menu screens could be more intuitive, particularly the options and settings screens, but it is all in there and although it can be hard to find at first, you get used to it pretty quickly.
My own experiences of IT hardware ireviews s not so much finding out what it will do but more about what it won't do. So this is the list I've found, or at least not yet found the setting for:
It won't lie flat on it's back on a table top. The sharp edges of the camera lens protrudes and it wobbles and could scratch a polished surface.
Most applications wont "close" and continue to run and hog memory unless you force them to close in the task manager.
It does not have an IR port
It does not have a front facing camera for video calling.
It seems not possible to reduce the screen touch sensitivity It can be a bit 'hair trigger'.
Pinch to zoom seems only works with applications specifically written for that feature.
