Okay, let's try this again.
Just when you thought the pure PocketPC concept was dead HP surprises us all by releasing a new series - the iPaq 210 (or 214 in the UK). Brief spec:
Windows Mobile 6
4" 640x480 VGA screen. Transflective so you will be able to view it in sunlight.
Completely transparent touchscreen membrane.
Latest generation 624MHz PXA310 ARM based CPU. Plenty of grunt and hardware video acceleration.
2200mAh battery. Should be good for at least 6 hours. 4400mAh battery available.
Wifi with WPA2.
Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR.
SDHC slot. Nice as I have an 8GB card.
Compact Flash Slot. Even nicer as I have a 16GB one of these as well! Gives me 24GB of storage. More than enough.
Bucket loads of apps out there. e.g. TCMP which gives Divx, OGG, Flac, AAC etc playback. Games, astronomy apps, ewallets, Opera, email, ebooks etc etc
Media Player 11 for WMV.
GPS mapping software available.
Sync all your contact details, task lists, email etc to your Windows/Linux PC.
Software SDK available.
Standard mini-usb for charge and transfer. USB host facility.
Stylus storage slot.
Exactly the same size and weight as a 605.
Looks quite nice too!

Now the best bit - Only ┬ú225 inc VAT. Got one on order straight away and it's due on the 5th of November. I'll post a mini review.
Oh, and you can have a smartphone version as well if you want.
