The Targus Professional Protective Case achieves a unique look and feel by combining stylish synthetic black leather with a protective, high-performance polymer.

Designed with sculpted bumpers that fit your iPAQ Pocket PC's unique shape, it provides some an enhanced level of protection from accidental drops and bumps.
When you hold this case, you will notice the comfort it provides from the cut-away sides and overall slim profile.

 A flip-up and removable front cover allows access to the iPAQ Pocket PC's display, along with access to all buttons and ports. Space behind the iPAQ Pocket PC can be used as either a "secret compartment" for business cards and credit cards or as room for the extended battery.

Unlike the original iPAQ covers it completely encase the device and acts more as a second skin which protects it even better:

As a bonus, each case is shipped with an additional back panel that has an attached belt clip.

Final Conclusion

The Tarkus case looks pretty valuable but for sure it's not comparable with a genuine leather case but this doesn't matter much, the approach of both kind of cases are completely different. While a leather case have to protect the iPAQ while it is stored in a executive case or similar, the Targus Protective Case is more designed for outdoor usage and since it works like a second skin, it protects an iPAQ even better than a leather case.

A great feature on the other hand is, that every port and button is accessible, however it doesn't fits into the cradle anymore which means that you have to remove the case from the iPAQ if you want to synchronize it or you could use an 3rd party sync and charge cable like Boxwave's miniSync I would recommend instead. Also jackets or thumb keyboards can not be used anymore together with this case.

All together the Targus Professional Protective Case is a fine piece of accessory if you use your Pocket PC frequently outdoor and need something more protective.
It can be used with all H3600, H3700, H3800, H3900, H5400 series iPAQs and costs US$49.99. It can be ordered directly from HP's online store.
