Compaq iPaq H3850
The iPaq H3850 was a palmtop computer made by Compaq, released in 2001. It kept the design and the 206MHz StrongARM of its predecessor but added new hardware power with a SD card slot, a 16-bit colour reflective LCD and 64MB of RAM, along with the new Pocket PC 2002 operating system and new voice-control software. Other changes included the battery capacity increasing from 8 hours battery life to 10 hours and the buttons below the screen were able to recognise two simultaneous button presses, allowing gamers to move and fire at the same time.
For the business-minded, Compaq bundled Voice Command And Control, which let you dictate commands to your Calendar, Contacts and Inbox. There was also a special data-encryption package, the Insignia Java Virtual Machine, and other useful software included on the CD-ROM.
