If you mean a touchpad versus the touchscreen, the Mobilepro 800 and 880 use a touchscreen, just like the 720. Only some of the older HP/Compaq CE devices used the touchpad like a laptop.

I am not keen on Handheld PC's that just look like a mini laptop. I do prefer the usual landscape Handheld PC shell (For example: HP Jornada 720). Inserting a pad to move your finger along the interface just makes you confused.


I second the last comment. I still keep trying to tap on the screen of my J820 instead of using the touchpad.

I don't mean that, i just mean 'the layout' of the handheld. It looks to portrait (to my opinion anyway). It may have a touchscreen, but that makes it even worse ... it now seems like a tablet pc!

I like the small size for sure, it is cool when you open up one of these machines and everyone ohhhs and awwwws over something a decade old. But I wish I had a better resoution, like 640 x 480 and still had the smaller size, but big keyboard.

With the flood of the netbooks the coolness factor somehow just isn't there anymore with a 880 size machine. A Jornada 728 maybe You whip that out and everyone is like.. what's that?

But the 880 is still a practical device for people writing on the go - like Julio.

That's exactly why people today never buy HPC's (Except most of you ... I don't really know about myself, I'm not really an HPC fan anymore (as off mid-January; check my signature)). The Handheld PC never sparked the public as well as Microsoft really did want to.

Ok so I think that I have just purchased Julio's 880. I'm just curious if anyone can help me out with a little question I have? I'm just wondering what the limit on the CF memory is?

I really enjoyed your review Rich. I'm not usually a fan of bigger Wince devices (an exception being the Vadem Clio), but I think you turned me here. I've found a few on eBay for around $30 bucks. Will have to pick one up this year.

Just a quick question though, you said you tried using a USB hub which didn't work. Could this be due to it being a low powered USB hub? Also, if you connected *just* the mouse, would that work?

Thanks again.
