    Got my copy of Consumer Reports yesterday. They do a comprehensive roundup of Palm/Pocket PCs. In the Pocket PC Category they give the clear edge to the HP!!!!
    "The best design among Pocket PCs"

    Aooooooooo!

    "We like the HP Jornada 565 for its clear color screen, ease of use and Compact Flash expansion slot."

    IPAQ took the sting for not having a user replaceable battery.

    Always nice to have a purchase decision confirmed by a Mag like CR

    Gloating,

    Lump

    They also gave Hyundai a higher rating than Toyota, but that didn't appear to change the publics buying habits. :)

    Sorta reminds of Betamax v. VHS. The best technology doesn't always win.

    From HP's most recent press release...

    "Smart Handhelds

    Decision: The Compaq iPAQ? Pocket PC, re-named the HP iPAQ Pocket PC, will be our smart handheld platform. The best of the current HP Jornada technology will be engineered into the platform. Jornada products will be phased out of the market in 2002."
