Compaq Ships Mono iPAQ

In an apparent attempt to garner broader acceptance of Microsoft-based handhelds against lower-priced Palm OS devices, Compaq (NYSE: CPQ) released Monday a monochrome version of its iPAQ Pocket PC.

The company said the $349 iPAQ Pocket PC H3150 has the same features as its H3100 Series of color handhelds.

The display shows 15 grayscales, comes with 16MB of RAM and uses a 206Mhz Intel StrongArm processor. The device supports expansion via standard PC Card and CompactFlash options.

The company also rolled out a series of related options, including a foldable keyboard for iPAQ handhelds.
