I'm ready to get a new mobile phone and my PPC is on it's way out.

I've read the review of the Ipaq 6365, any more information anyone?

Do you feel silly putting a brick to your ear?

Can you use an ordinary plug in earpiece/microphone?

Can you use any old bluetooth adapter? I have a SE HBH-60.

Also does it come with a full version out Desktop Outlook? Reason I ask is that that's the only part of MS Office that I use and it might save me an upgrade.

Cheers

All Pocket PC, Pocket PC Phone Edition and Smartphone currently in the market come with Microsoft Outloo 2000.

The h6365 is ok, but it has some Bluetooth problems. Also it is not the fastet Pocket PC in the market. If you're planning to buy here in NZ, then I'd go for the i-mate PDA2k. It is the same feature set as the h6365, including built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It comes with a sliding keyboard, while on the h6365 it's a attachable accesory you have to carry around. Also, the PDA2k comes with Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition, while the h6365 doesn't.

Thanks Mauricio,

The iMate is out of my pricerange I think, which is why I'm looking at the Ipaq. I've been using a Jornada 548 for more than 5 years now and I mainly use the Outlook functions and listen to the odd MP3.

I'm presently carrying around a phone and my Jornada. My phone, the SE630 isn't cutting the mustard.

Cheers

I didn't think the h6365 was available here yet?

Techpac have had them for a month or so. Possibly not in Vodafone, or other phone shops yet.

Mauricio, you have used one haven't you - does the ear-bud have a mic as well?

I'm commenting simply because I've heard a rumour that Vodafone isn't planning to sell this model here in New Zealand. Of course it's a rumour, nothing official.

I've used one, yes, but most of the time with a Bluetooth headset - sorry can't remember the detail on the corded headset.

I've had my new iPAQ for a few days now.

So for the sake of sharing information:

It is a strange feeling putting a larger than normal unit to your ear ;)

Yes there is a full corded headset with a microphone.

Yes my HBH-60 bluetooth headset works well.

Yes there is a copy of Outlook 2002.

Nice unit, my only issue is with the low volume of the speaker.

I have a full review on my blog if anyone is interest -
