The upgrade looks a little better, it took a little bit better advantage of the x scale . The wifi is supposed to be easier, It is if you don't have to configure it, Lots of programs have not cought up to the 2003 os, so if you have some favorite programs on you 2002 they may not work. The 2003 fixed a couple of bugs too.

Of all my programs I found only one (Livingstone Maps) that would not work with Windows Mobile 2003. In general you can feel it is a little speedier.

I think it was worth (at least forced a hard reset which probably got me some memory back as a forced "clean up")

I upgraded my iPAQ 5455 from 2002 to 2003, upgraded worked fine
Now have a new nifty picture app, new game Jawbreaker(no instructions anywhere on how to play it though, not even at microsofts site), its a little quicker. The wifi didn't work until I uploaded a new fix, now there is NO wifi strenght meter so I don't know how good or bad the connection is.
Worst is my iPAQ is very flakey when it comes to wakeup alerts. I used to use it everday as a alarm clock/morning meeting reminver (or take medicine alarm), now some days it works some it doenst go off UNITL I turn it on, then all the alerts it was supposed to wakeup and give me it gives me in a list on screen. It has been doing this for quite some time. I tried HP's reset, reload no extras, two days okay, the didn't go off, loaded oak softwrare, worked two or three days then same problem. I sent it back to HP. To bad my $650 iPAQ no longer can be used as a wakeup alarm but my $99 palm never failed to do this! Nor does my $60 casio watch! ARGHHHH..... This is recorded to have happened on not just iPAQs but other PDA's using WM2003. If you don't need the wakeup feature then go for it. Otherwise I would wait until they get it fixed (perhaps in WM2003SE?)

I've been eyeing my eyes on HP's site to get WM2003 upgrade for my ipaq 3850, but don't think it is available (at least i haven't seen an order form online and still waiting for it to appear!!!!!) But now, HP has removed the link/page :-( have i missed out my WM2003 upgrade???


And if that's the case, i want to get new ipaq, is 2210 worth while for its CF+SDio+BT? or should i get ipaq 4150 for its SDio + WiFi + BT?

I have a digital camera uses CF, and iMate smartphone2 with SD, and want to use BT, and would like to get on WiFi too... what am I gonna do???????

Ok... Look for this update on Ascent then. Note that the message about the upgrade not being available until October is for 2003.

If you want a device with both Bluetooth and wi-fi, the h4150 is the way to go. I have one and I'm very happy with it.

Have a look in our h4150 review for more information. Also check the performance chart. It's currently the fastet Pocket PC in that chart.
