The iPAQ is a Pocket PC. The h3955 model is not new, but it's a good one.

A Pocket PC is like the name say a pocket sized computer. It provides some basic functions out-of-the-box, like Calendar, Contacts, Tasks and e-mail client (POP3, IMAP, Exchange).

To synchronise the information between a Pocket PC and Outlook you need to have ActiveSync installed on your computer, and of course MS Outlook.

ActiveSync is also used to install new programs on a Pocket PC. These are not the same as your Windows desktop programs. They are specially developed for this OS platform, called Windows Mobile. Check out our Geekzone Software Store for a list of software for this device.

Some Pocket PC will have wireless LAN (Wi-Fi), others will have Bluetooth, some will have both.

You can expand memory on Pocket PC devices using CF, SD or MMC cards depending on the model, and you can install programs on these cards, saving the main memory for when you're running programs.
