Compaq delays Pocket PC 2002 upgrade for iPaq

Compaq Computer Corp. has delayed shipping the CD that allows users to upgrade their iPaq handhelds to Microsoft Corp.'s Pocket PC 2002 operating system.

In September, Compaq said the upgrade CDs would begin shipping in mid-October, but shipments have now been knocked back until at least the first week in November, a Compaq spokeswoman confirmed Wednesday. "I believe Compaq will be shipping the upgrades from about the fifth of November," she said. It was not immediately known whether the delay was caused by Microsoft or Compaq.

The upgrade CD is free to users who purchased an iPaq between Sept. 6 and Nov. 30, Compaq said in September. Users who purchased iPaqs outside of that time window have to pay US$29.95 for the upgrade, Compaq said.

Compaq's iPaq features built-in Flash ROM capability, which allows users to upgrade from the previous version of Pocket PC to the newest version.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
