For an otherwise-generic PDA, the iPaq 210 has already led a controversy-filled life filled with numerous delays
, canceled pre-orders
, retracted and clarified official statements from HP
, and even a website bug that constantly promised shipment in two weeks -- but now it's finally here
, and according to the crew at Brighthand, all that bake time seems to have paid off. The 210's 4-inch VGA-res screen drew high praise, of course, but what really set the 210 apart was the wealth of connectivity options -- with both CF and SDHC slots, the 210 can store up to 64GB of data, and transfer it over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0, and USB 2.0. The only issues seem to be a touchscreen that requires a firmer touch than usual and that high $450 MSRP -- but if you're among the few still in the market for a standalone PDA, the 210 is probably worth checking out.
