The h5550 Pocket PC is Hewlett Packard’s latest, top of the range iPAQ. The hardware design is modelled very much on the similarly named h5450, and retains the stylish looks that characterize iPAQs in general. Like the h5450, this new model has built in 802.11b and Bluetooth wireless connectivity, as well as fingerprint recognition. The latter works in conjunction with the passwording system that comes with Pocket PC as standard, to make this probably the most secure PDA you can buy. The software inside the h5550 is the latest version of Pocket PC, which Microsoft calls Windows Mobile 2003 for Pocket PC, but which is generally becoming known by the shorthand term Pocket PC 2003. This incorporates a range of updates from the previous version, including facilities that make it easier to join wireless networks. As you come into the vicinity of a network, a notification bubble opens letting you know, and asking if you'd like to join in. Minimize
