Review: HP iPAQ 110 Classic – PDA Like It’s 1999

We got a package recently from 1999, or so it seemed at first: The iPAQ 110 Classic looks like a museum relic from those halcyon pre-Internet Bust days when everyone had a PDA in his or her pocket.

It was the cell phone that killed off the PDA, as phones grew to take on PDA features and we collectively decided that we didn’t want to carry two handheld devices at the same time. But the iPAQ 110 reminds us of what we gave up when we let the PDA go: the 240 x 320 pixel, 3.5-inch diagonal screen seems impressively large compared to most smartphones, and using a stylus with handwriting recognition is a pleasure after years of thumb-typing on Chicklet-sized keys.
