As News.Com reports, HP will announce its two new iPAQ Pocket PCs on next Monday. Also expansys already takes pre-orders for the new H3970.
The major changes to the current H3800 series will be that the new H3900 series will feature brighter screens and more powerful processors with the Intel XScale CPU, as well as new universal remote-control technology. But the devices will have the same basic design as former iPAQ models.

I was able to play with the H3970 iPAQ some days ago and even if I'm not allowed to talk about it - due to a NDA - in closer details I can tell you that the new screen is incredible. It's brighter - in the direct sun as well with its light - than the previous iPAQ models and also the colors seems to be clearer. In general the screen looks sharper. Regarding the speed or battery life I can't say to much as I wasn't able to do some benchmarks but compared to the TomTom City Maps on my iPAQ H3870 zooming seemed faster. Regarding the consumer infrared you can rejoice as Compaq (which developed the new device before the merger) added something really cool I can not speak about now.
Also all today's available jackets will also fits on the new iPAQs as the size or design isn't changed at all. Stay tuned for more updates.

Cheers ~ Arne
