Want to buy a new accessory for your new Pocket PC Phone, but it’s not available on the market yet? With Gomadic’s new iPAQ 3100, 3600 and 3700 compatible interface adapter which works with T-Mobile's, o2's and Siemens's Pocket PC Phone Edition devices, you can convert any iPAQ accessory to work with your Pocket PC Phone. Equipped with a 3600/3700 series socket on one end, a short 1” length of cable and a Pocket PC Phone Edition plug on the other, simply plug the iPAQ device in the socket, connect the adapter plug to the base port of the Pocket PC Phone and you’re ready to go! This is the perfect accessory for the user who recently upgraded their iPAQ and still wants to be able to leverage their older accessories.

Only Gomadic's interface adapter maps all pins from the 12-pin 3600/3700 series iPAQs interface to the appropriate pins on the 22-pin Pocket PC interface ensuring 100% compatibility with every cable accessory including Phone to PDA cables, GPS antennas, Power sync USB cables, etc.

The interface adapter cable is custom designed by engineers at Gomadic and professionally built to their specification.

With that adapter you can connect nearly every previous iPAQ accessory to your Pocket PC Phone like I did with the Pharos GPS receiver.

However, this solution doesn't works well if you want to connect any keyboards like the Targus Foldable keyboard. Here I recommend the adapter since this is compacter and don't came with the flexible cable in the middle of the connectors.

Final Conclusion

As always, Gomadic delivered a fine piece of useful adapter and like its iPAQ 3600 to 3800 adapter this one increas the availability of accessories for the Pocket PC Phone Edition. The previous iPAQ series still have the most available accessories and the iPAQ connector became a kind of standard. With Gomadic's solution you can use most of this accessories like GPS, USB Sync and Charge or others again. However, as I said before - that adapter shouldn't be used for keyboard attachments.
Anyway - beside this - the adapter is highly recommended for everybody who wants to use iPAQ accessories with the Pocket PC Phone!
