ce.net 4.1 .... yeah right! how is it possible that it's running this?

Posted by Arne Hess on 28.01.03 - 00:00:00

That's a good question I was thinking about too... I will try to get more information directly from them...

These stories just keep popping up, always with nice Photoshop creations. Probably vaporware once again. Would have been nice though. Oh well.

@siliconaddict: I really believe the device may come out on day but they need to really to show "real" specs not "wish list" specs....

Hi Arne Hess,
I need your advice, I'm planning to buy a Pocket pc with GSM/GPRS capabilities, the problem is I live in Egypt and nothing compatible here till now except the ipaq GSM/GPRS Jacket, I am waiyning for the new 5000 GSM/GPRS model but no nwes yet about its avialbility in the market. Do you have any clue? If not or It's realease is more than 2 months ahead I need your recommendation for an alternative but not to be sim locked if you know what I mean.
Thanks man

@Ahmad Moustafa Othman: I'm sorry but I can not talk about the availability of a H5000 GSM/GPRS version since I don't know if/when/where it is released as well as I'm under NDA with HP and even if I would know anything, I couldn't talk about it today since there wasn't any real official statements from HP about a GSM/GPRS iPAQ.
I see your problem with getting a non-SIM locked Pocket PC Phone Edition and the only advice I have for you is to buy a xda in Asia because there it's not SIM locked or to buy a PC/CF GSM/GPRS card if you are looking more for data then for voice features.
Also I don't know so far where/when/if the devices above will be released since Imri didn't respond to my E-Mails. :-(

Hi Arne Hess,
Thanks for your prompt response, Can you name or recommend an asian site/country where I can find the non-sim locked XDA or buy on line? Dubai for example? Thanks

@Ahmad Moustafa Othman: At least you can get it here:

However, as far as I saw no online shops included. Maybe any Chinese reader of PPCW.Net can provide you additional help.

Hi !!! Arne Hess Im Planning to buy apocket pc phone w/built in camera.And i saw the two new model's XDAII and IPA-C1 this two unit's are both open line's? And how much the unit cost? Pls. I need your advice Im hear in the Philippines thank and God Bless your Family!!!

Posted by Arne Hess on 18.08.03 - 11:30:47

@DANIEL D. MARCELO: Thanks for your feedback and kind words.

However neither the xda II nor the IPA-C1 are released to for commercially and therefore no prices are announced. Also it depends on who will sell that Pocket PC Phone Editions in terms of if it will be SIM locked or not.

Stay tuned for updates here on PPCW.Net.
