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.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
