I assume he means the iPAQ H3650 -
http://www6.compaq.com/products/handhelds/pocketpc/H3650.html - which is
a handheld with a 206MHz StrongARM CPU and a color screen - it comes
with Windows PocketPC (a version of CE). BTW, I think the Compaq Aero
1550 has its PocketPC OS in a removeable rom - if the H3650 does too,
well, that could be quite interesting.
