Upgrade Your iPAQ h2210 to 128 MB of Memory

Hewlett-Packard iPAQ h2210 Pocket PC Techs is now offering a 64 MB to 128 MB upgrade for the HP iPAQ 2200 series. The upgrade requires the company’s proprietary driver and is segmented into 64 MB of conventional memory (56 MB usuable) and 64MB as a Hi-Speed T2T Disk. The additional 64 MB serves as a sort of internal memory card. In addition, Pocket PC Techs’ driver allows AvantGo channels and Pocket Internet Explorer’s Temporary Folder to be stored in it.

The cost is $159 including second-day-return shipping (US only). Customers should be aware that this upgrade is not supported by HP and will void the handheld’s warranty. However, Pocket PC Techs offers a 90-day warranty on the upgrade and motherboard of the unit.
