'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Compaq iPAQ H3760

Not yet rated

Compaq's iPAQ 3600 series was a runaway success, and the company has decided to continue offering a beefed-up version of that model with the updated Pocket PC 2002 operating system. Compaq calls this the 3700 series.

To accommodate the new OS’s memory requirements, the H3760 will have 32MB of ROM, up from 16MB in the H3600 series. The 3700 series will be available only with 64MB of RAM installed. But the additional memory won't cost you more than the old H3650 did -- the list price of the H3760 is £429 (ex. VAT).

The new iPAQs are shipped with all the bells and whistles that come packaged as a part of Pocket PC 2002, including Pocket Internet Explorer, Pocket Word and the Windows Media Player. You'll still find the iPAQ Task Manager button, which lets you close applications that are running in the background with the tap of a stylus. Dashboard is also installed. This popular application enhances the Today screen, showing two days' worth of appointments, application quick launch buttons and so forth.

The 3700-series models have the same fast 206MHz StrongARM processor and 4,096-color reflective screen as their predecessors, while the battery life is rated at the same eight hours. Gamers will be disappointed to note that the device still cannot recognize two simultaneous button presses. On the plus side, the H3700-series iPAQs work with all the existing expansion sleeves, keyboards, and other peripheral hardware. Unlike the more expensive iPAQ H3850, the H3700 series won't ship with a screen-cover sleeve, just a black slipcover.
