My company just bought me one of these and I was wondering if there is a site like palmgear.com for these windows based machines?

Thanks for the response it's a hp rz1715 which knowing my boss is probably the low end model, but it does seem like a pretty kool gadget.

"How To" site from Microsoft - http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/help/pocketpc/supportsetup.aspx

Just select your model, HP rz1715, and click Get Support.

I think the word you are looking for is "Pocket PC", and the MS Windows version is "Windows CE".

On his particular device the OS is Pocket PC 2003, which is nothing much more than a name difference than the older Windows CE.

I went to a $400 color iPaq 4350 after using an $89 Handspring Deluxe, a Palm-based PDA for years. The Handspring only has 16mb RAM with no external card slots. The iPaq has 64mb RAM and an SD slot where I have a 256mb chip. Still not enough room.

I've been disappointed that this iPaq runs out of space when the Handspring never did. I've had to unload software that I use just to make it work. I've never been able to figure out how to store software on the SD chip. It seems like this should be possible.

I'm actually thinking of returning this color iPaq Pocket PC and going back to the monochrome Handspring. It had more of what I needed and it always worked.
