Maybe you wonder also if the iPAQ H3900 will be launched under Compaq or HP brand? The nice folks of Compaq Europe gave the following feedback:
"HP has decided to keep the Compaq logo and packaging on the 3900 series. Why? The launch of the device (24th June 02) was relatively close after the launch of 'the new HP' (7th May 02). Until the official merger close the companies were not allowed to co-operate, therefore both had to progress in the 'old plans' during the pre-merger phase.
To re-design and change the brand from Compaq iPAQ to HP iPAQ on the 3900 would slow down the introduction of the device to the market. Between the 2 'bad choices'- "introduce HP iPAQ under the new brand but late' or 'bring the device in time but under the 'old' Compaq brand' - HP has decided to offer the product in the 'Compaq fashion' and provide it early. However, this is really the last possibility to buy an 'iPAQ in the Compaq box'. All next generations will be HP branded. Compaq brand will become a museum piece..:-)"
So go and grab the good old last Compaq device if it is available soon. Find also soon a review of the Compaq H3900 here.
