As USA Today reports, after the merger Compaq's iPAQs will become the lead product for handheld devices:

The new product lineup will include: H-P's market-leading printers; Compaq's iPaq handhelds; H-P's Pavilion and Compaq's Presario consumer personal computers; Compaq's Evo business PC; and Compaq's ProLiant Windows-based servers.

Among the product lines that have or will be axed: H-P's handheld model, Jornada; its Vectra business PC; and its Windows-based servers.

So will this be the end of the successful Jornada series and maybe the reason why the new Jornada 574 was removed from mobileplanet? Whatever happens I wonder if we will see the WDA or if it will skipped also. Anyway, congrats to Compaq - "the better one won" ;-)

Cheers ~ Arne

The IPaq is surely technologically more advanced than the Jornada. However, I still found the Jornada much more usable in the Day-to-Day routine due to the lower weight and smaller size. Additionally the CF slot in the unit is a great advantage comparing to the IPaq.

I hope this is one of the technologies that HP is saying that will be ported from the Jornada to the IPAQ.

Frankly, engineering-wise, iPaq sucks big time. I do not agree with the statement "the better one won" if you refered it to technology and useability. Rather I would put that as what Capellas has said over to which product line HP should keep. "Largest revenue won".
HP Jornada is certainly better technically, but lost out on sales.sad
