"IPAQ 210 is an excellent PDA but with some problems"3.5 starson by MM#8
Pros: Excellen screen, fast OS that makes writing DOC a joy, and good WiFi
Cons: Major failure in button design.
Summary: I got my 210 about a week ago. I wanted this PDA mainly for reading technical documents, for power point presentation, and writing notes on the road. The screen is really nice. OS is fast so that the letter recognition goes very smoothly. This makes hand writing very smooth, much better than Palm LifeDrive, my wife has a LifeDrive.
My main disaapointment is on the up and down buttons. You can not use them easily. I am an engineer by training and know that at this time an age how much effort goes into the design of products to make them practical and usable. I do not know what HP engineers have been smoking to come with this button design. Also, it is the failure of the management that did not check the product before OK it. It is really difficult to push the up button and use it effectively. I had to program other buttons to do the up & down job.
Overall, IPAQ is an excellent PDA if you don't mind stupid button design. However, to be honest evrytime I think about this stupid button, it makes me angry.
