Austria is a tough place to find Handhelds, but I managed to get an almost mint condition J728 for cheap! What a beauty!
Now I only have to get my HP320lx back again (I sold it to a friend more than 10 years ago, but he is willing to sell it back now that he isn't into HPCs anymore), then I have the full Series of 320lx, 620lx, J720, J820, J728



(I know the 360lx, MC16, 660lx, J680 and J690 are missing, but since they're very similar to the other ones I have already, I don't consider them essential, it's more important to have all major versions of Windows CE )
(Though a 360lx might be nice to have a grayscale WCE 2.0 device)

Why do you need both a 720 and a 728 then? (The 728 alone was good enough for me. And I took turns between first the 680 and then the 690. )

The 360LX is unique in that it is capable of charging rechargeable AA batteries within the unit while on AC power. Also, it's the only CE 2.0 device I've ever gotten WR-Tools ResInfo to work on.

Well I already have a Jornada 720, and the Jornada 720 is the one I always wanted as a kid, so that one's a keeper

Klar! Ein J728 mit englischer ROM wär mir zwar lieber gewesen, aber vielleicht find ich ja mal wo eine ROM oder einen defekten auf eBay

Ich habe selbst ein paar deutschsprachige HPCs, und die Übersetzung ist manchmal nicht ganz so gelungen Deshalb bevorzuge ich ebenfalls englische ROMs.

Ich denke, wenn Sie zweisprachig sind dann ist es wirklich keinen Unterschied machen.

A "true" collector would own one of every model!


I live in Europe though and my apartment is only so big
So I'd rather have a smaller collection that I can nicely present and keep in an always-charged state, each fully set up, packed with software, rather than many devices collecting dust in some boxes!

I have a fireplace in my apartment which I can't use because the previous owner built it without permission, which has to eventually be removed and replaced by a nice display shelf for all my Handhelds!

Nice try, Rich! Correct would be: "Ich denke, wenn Sie zweisprachig sind, dann macht es wirklich keinen Unterschied." But enough of that
