Free iPaq - in Switzerland
Posted on 30-Jan-2003 16:07. | Tags Filed under: News.

"DAVOS, Switzerland Compared to the enthusiasm and optimism of last year's annual World Economic Forum, the global gathering this past week of 1,000 top business leaders together with several hundred political leaders, journalists, and academics and artists was quiet and somber. But there was one bright spot, almost a bit of fun, with a gift from Hewlett-Packard of the new Wi-Fi enabled HP iPaq Pocket PC to all conference participants."

Hmmm... Not only the rich countries are represented there, but rich people get the cool toys for free.

Anyway, this is an article about how the wi-fi technology was used during the Davos World Economic Forum to distribute information... The iPaqs were called "Davos Companions".
