Updated Information on New Pocket PC Models

by Reads (17,289)

Several new Pocket PC models were introduced at this week’s CeBIT tradeshow in Germany. However, some of these were not also announced in the United States. This means that their official information isn’t available in English, leading to occasional difficulties in translation. As a result, a few articles published on Brighthand this week had incorrect or incomplete information.

The iPAQ h1915 has SDIO

The official description of the h1915 on hp Deutschland makes it clear that this new model has support for SDIO. This will allow the device to use non-memory SD peripherals, like wireless networking cards, digital cameras, presentation tools, and more.

The exact amount of the h1915 user-accessible RAM is now known: 46 MB out of the device’s 64 MB.

It was briefly reported that this model had built-in Bluetooth wireless networking. This was not correct.

The Toshiba e350 Has a 3.5 Inch Screen

It was initially reported that the Toshiba e350 used the same 3.8 inch screen that the new e750 does. This is not correct. The product page on Toshiba’s Europen site shows that it actually uses a 3.5 inch screen. This is a transflective TFT LCD that can display 16-bit color.

It was reported by DigiTimes last month that Toshiba was considering charging just $200 for this device. As the e350 is on sale now in Europe for essentially the same price as the e330, it seems likely that the price in the U.S. will be at least $300.

The Toshiba e750 Includes 32 MB of Additional Storage Space

When the e750 was first announced, there was some confusion about what its 32MB of NAND memory could be used for. A Toshiba spokesperson has confirmed that this is accessible to the user and can be used as a Flash ROM Disk. This allows the user to store files that won’t be erased if the handheld has a hard reset or the battery is completely drained. The e750 has a separate 32MB of CMOS Flash ROM to store the operating system.
