    I went into Vodafone today and it seems that after just two months, HP have recalled the 928! Vodafone aren't stocking them at all, and are sending my unit to HP in Singapore to get it fixed...

    Does this mean the new Compaq PPC 'phones will be replacing the 928 before Christmas?

    Watch this space...

    Right -- Compaq will get those phones out before Christmas ... ;)

    No, I didn't think they would either, I still don't, but unless HP have found some major defect with the 928 that NOBODY else has noticed (and let's face it, when has any PDA manufacturer managed to keep a major defect quiet) I can't see another reason for recalling it.... anyone?

    Now I could well be wrong. No arguments there. I admit I am only human, but the 928 has now also disappeared without a trace from HP's product lineup on their US website.

    But it's still there on their UK one...

    still no answers....

    EDIT: Just occurred to me that it may well not have been on the US site for a while (since they don't sell it there) & I just didn't notice since I don't go there much... but it's still on Vodafone's site, even though their MD (who authorised the Nottingham branch to send mine to Singapore) says their warehouses have sent EVERY SINGLE UNIT back to HP!

    I don't recall it ever being on the US website, but I'm not for sure. 75%, anyhow. :)
