HP iPAQ rx5765
- Great value
- A little slow
The iPAQ is a touch slow at times and its lack of a pedestrian mode hasn't gone unnoticed. However, it still offers amazing value for money and excellent functionality.
Price$ 699.00 (AUD)
Satnav, a feature that was once found only in the most expensive cars, is increasingly crammed on to the screens of smart phones and PDAs and hidden beneath the passenger seat of rusty bangers.
The latest addition to HP's iPAQ line-up, the 5765, runs on Windows Mobile 5.0 Premium, combining navigation assistance with Office applications, contact- and data-management software, media playback, e-mail and Web browsing. It's a simple matter to sync data with a PC, and images are easily sent directly to print.
Although some features are dependant on accessibility to a wireless network, the main features are not. And by configuring the BT Phone Manager, you can tap into your mobile's Internet connection using the built-in Bluetooth receiver. It's here that the iPAQs ability to switch between horizontal and vertical displays really impresses.
With TomTom Navigator 6.0 Australian maps preinstalled, postcode navigation, various points of interest and access to TomTom Plus services, the iPAQ is all you need to find your way. That said, it suffers some delay around corners, which can be confusing when one turn leads immediately to another. And we still haven't found a GPS capable of quickly finding a signal at startup in remote locations
Importantly, the HP features password protection. And reassurances continue abroad. While it has an exhaustive collection of maps, iPAQ Choice points allow you to download more - along with additional games and software. Meanwhile, WorldMate keeps you clued-up with differing time zones, currencies and whatever else may have you confused.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
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.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
