Written on: 05/02/2003 by Sperly. (1 review written)

Aside from the above, this Pocket PC is the nuts, and the recent WHICH? report were correct to make it a best buy. It's identical to the H3970, with the exception of a brighter screen, but this alone doesn't justify its extra £120 Price tag. I have owned mine for 10 Months, and apart from it landing on a weak point when I dropped it accidentally (see above), it is now my life, and I don't know what Id do without it. The expansion packs are brilliant for it - I have the Navman Sat/Nav system in… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/06/2002 by Martin Brown. (1 review written)

The Compaq Ipaq H3870 PDA has all the functionality you'll ever need with plenty of memory available to you, and with the 206 MHz Intel StrongARM 32 bit RISC Processor holding up the foundation like Atlas with a mountain, it's no slouch in the speed department either. As you would expect, the screen is a thin film transistor screen boasting 65,536 colours as the stylus glides over the surface with ease. This really is the most ergonomic hand held out there at the present time, and if you're… Read Full Review

Top review.
Love using these two devices together, seems like a winning combination!
With the phone in my bag I can use the pda to surf the web send and recieve emails and SMS. Only downside to this is the phone stay connected for less time when getting those emails which is a slight cost saver!
Agree about the GPRS... for slight MSN/Email/IRC useage GSM dialup is fine and far, far cheaper!

Written on: 28/05/2002 by Cath Lewis. (1 review written)

I got error messages when installing the Compaq Ipaq 3870 PDA - could not connect via USB so had to use serial port. Most of the time it does not synchronise and gives yet more errors or there is a message saying "inbox - attention needed" but of course you cannot fix this as it requires a USB connection. So, I reinstall the software and it works for a couple of days but after a time synchronisation stops working. I reset the device, reinstall the software again... and so on. The transcriber… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/04/2002 by Alastair Brown. (1 review written)

The Compaq Ipaq 3870 is a good upgrade from an original Pocket PC (in my case an iPAQ 3670). I use it in conjunction with an Ericsson T39m (now very cheap from Orange), and Orange GPRS. I haven't measured the speed of the service, but it does not feel much slower than a 56k modem. When used for e-mail and low bandwidth websites (check out http://members.bellatlantic.net/~blumax/plinkit/), it is awesome. IMHO well worth the extra cash to get away from infra red or wires… Read Full Review
