I Won A PocketPC!

I won a HP iPAQ hx2490b PocketPC! I attended a Microsoft Connections event about Windows Vista (the new operating system) and Small Business Server (totally recommended once you actually need a server, install it all the time myself). There are always raffles, and I never win anything, except today I did!

Here's a diagram...

When the very fist iPAQ came out (before HP bought Compaq), Cathy got one for me for Christmas of 2000. I remember it well. When the power convertor died, it was too expensive to fix and I was too cheap to replace it. It still ran on the outlet, but that kinda defeats the purpose.

Anyway, It has WiFi (802.11b), Bluetooth, 256 MB of memory, and it is fast. I can't really blog from it, but I can manage my personal life and email from it now.

My first iPAQ was "Pocket PC 2000" and my new one is Windows Mobile 5.0.

I almost left it in the box. I was debating selling it, but decided to keep it. It is nice!
