Comment: Can anybody tell me how to convert my IPAQ rx3715 in to a mob phone?
Good: Excellent battery life, clear screen (but VGA), Nevo, WMP10
Bad: Its tendency to crash and hard (full) reset itself, Mobile Media software
Comment: Excellent all-round PDA, could be used as a business PIM and comms tool and turned to a media platform when asked to. Mobile Media software is too fussy. Bluetooth tends to take quite a while to boot up (a lot slower than Wi-Fi) if there are a lot of apps running while you try to do so, it crashes the whole thing. It is quite unstable and there have been occasions where it crashed, I pressed the soft-reset button, then nothing came up on the screen (tried soft resetting again and power button) and if you don't connect it to an AC power source within a few seconds it hard resets itself, so make sure you back-up your data often. There also have been occasions of the irretrievable soft-reset cycle. My friend also has the same PDA, and the motherboard fried itself so it had to be replaced.
Good: The very long battery life. Some great features like the remote control and media playback.
Bad: The screen is not the best in the world for showing the videos and pictures that you play back on it. Also the price is quite a large amount to pay fo
Comment: Overall the HPiPaq rz3715 is a amazing machine. This can do all of your every day tasks like Calendar. But it takes the next step up as it play your media files. Pictures, movies, MP3 player, and remote control. Also with the Wireless internet built in you can go onto the internet where ever you are.
