Anyone use HP IPAQ 212?

  1. 0 Hi,

    I am looking into a PDA style thing. My major must have is Mims (the Aus drug reference). I got really excited when I found out that Mims was available on the iPhone, but it is a web account, not a standalone program. Unfortunately I don't know what the web access is going to be throughout the hospital...
    But the IPAQ has a 4" touch screen, windows mobile 6.1, I will be able to have a standalone Mims with access to quarterly updates, it also has a mims interactions program too.

    There are other stuff that I can get to for windows mobile, which I'm happy with and various ebooks and such.
    I just want to know if anyone has any specific experience with this particular model.

    i can't answer your question but i've been lusting after the ipaq 200 series (210 - 214 are actually all the same, variations due to regional locations or distribution channels) for some time now. i did have the old ipaq 6515 phone, which finally bite the dust, along with all my skyscape programs (sob). i still have the programs but now no machine to use them on. my latest samsung (should be some dung imho) phone is just a phone (no windows mobile) so it's rather useless as a pda.

    still, 400 bucks for the basic unit is a lot of bucks. throw in the usual accessories (dock, belt carrier, extra battery, and whatever cool knick knacks) and we're close to double that. <sigh...>

    santa? are you listening? :d

    She's beautiful isn't she

    I am asking family and friends who wanted to get me something for birthday/christmas/graduation then I am taking donations for this.

    I'm hoping that way it isn't such a huge amount that I have to put in, then I can purchase extras for it along the way.

    Plus, hubby can get it at cost price as he will order it through the business.
