Default We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled 33 Minute News Bursts...

I really tried, but I wasn't able to completely my iPAQ 2215 review for tonight. I've had a heck of a weekend, including getting only two hours of sleep last night because our 12-week old puppy has <a href="http://www.cah.com/library/kennekcough.html">kennel cough</a>, and trying to coordinate all this Windows Mobile 2003 news hasn't left me with enough time to get the review finished. Oh yeah, and I got a huge blister on my finger from playing bass a little too energetically at church this morning before hanging from a ladder for 30 minutes filming a baptism service. What a day! 8O <br /><br />I'll give you two things to take the edge off your appetite though. The first is this picture:<br /><br /><img src="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/images/web/2003/ipaq2215-keyboard.jpg" /> <br /><br />Yes, that's right, the iPAQ 2215 works with the new Stowaway XT keyboard! That makes it the lightest and smallest mobile office yet.<br /><br />The second bit of info relates to the performance of the iPAQ 2215 (higher numbers are better):<br /><br /><a href="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/images/web/2003/jason-june03-ipaq2215-12-big.gif"><img src="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/images/web/2003/jason-june03-ipaq2215-12.gif" /></a> <br /><br />The above shows how much faster the iPAQ 2215 is, with the combination of Windows Mobile 2003 and the PXA255 XScale processor, than previous iPAQs. Don't let anyone tell you that Windows Mobile 2003 is "just a bug fix" - this new OS is tuned for blazing performance! Stay tuned for the full review tomorrow.

People with 2215's are reporting that it's finally possible to play SNES games at a full speed with sound, so it's confirmed. The 2200 series FLYS!

Sweetness! I thought we weren't going to see a performance increase or XScale optimization until the 2004(5?) version of Pocket PC.

I have my hands on a 2215, and let me say it's unbelievably fast.... we are talking speed demon!!! Pocket Bible opens crazy fast even between books, and even large chapters almost never see a spinning beach ball....IE renders so incredibly fast i thought stuff was in cache... cleared it and let me say IE alone is worth the price of admission!!!

I'd just like to add that all the butt kicking consumers rightly gave MS and Intel over the whole XScale fiasco has obviously produced results!
