Description[edit]

In the year 2005, HP introduced the iPAQ RX1950 series to serve as its entry-level PDA option. The RX1950 was meant for enterprise use, while the RX1955 was released to consumers, costing $299.99. They both ran Windows Mobile 5.0 Premium Edition.

Reception[edit]

Overall, reviewers were quite happy with the RX1950 series. Its price was lower than competing PDAs, but it still managed to be a very capable little device. This is because it featured the latest version of Windows Mobile, and had built-in WiFi connectivity. The main criticisms were that it lacked Bluetooth, had a QVGA resolution display, had limited storage, and didn’t have a Compact Flash slot. Thanks to its relatively low price, reviewers were mostly able to overlook these shortcomings.
