I have an hx4705 with Windows Mobile 2003SE.

I am thinking of upgrading to WM5 mainly because of persistent memory feature.

But the questions are:

1) Despite some complains of slowliness on WM5, is it worth to upgrade?

2) After upgrading, will it be possible to go back to WM2003?

3) Are the following software full compatible with WM5?

a) spb pocketplus 3
b) spb gprsmonitor 2
c) splashid 3
d) pocket12CV160
e) betaplayer
d) skype 2

Chico, Windows Mobile 5 is a great advancement for some devices, but for others it will leave a lot behind. In the case of the iPAQ hx4705 there are a few problems, including one serious performance hit caused by incorrect parameters driving a thing called Compaction Thread. Some of these hx4705 and Windows Mobile problems are explained here.

I think you could always go back, but I don't know where to find the old ROM.

I wouldn't upgrade this model - but that's my opinion, and I prefer to keep things running smootly.

Ate mais...

Ok Mauricio,

Thanks for your opinion.

Knowing that, I guess it will spare me some 40 bucks!
