iPAQ rx3715 PDA


This high-end PDA has almost everything you could want, but its digital camera takes lousy pictures.

Despite a mediocre camera, the Rx3715 has more goodies than most other Pocket PCs. Some features aren't terribly useful, but the rest make for a pretty nifty (albeit expensive) PDA

HP iPAQ rx3715 review


Tom's Hardware Guide takes a thorough look at the HP iPAQ rx3715, which uses a Samsung 400MHz CPU (with Dynamic Voltage Scaling, like Intel's Speedstep, slowing CPU clock speed when little power is needed), packs in a 1.2 megapixel camera, 152MB of ROM...

HP iPAQ rx3715


The HP iPAQ rx3715is a solid, flexible PocketPC with intriguing multimedia features.

Lots of memory. Only Pocket PC with 1.2-megapixel cam-era. Dual networking. Excellent battery life.

Expensive. Only streams unprotected WMA files.

Review of HP's iPaq rx3715 Mobile Media Companion Pocket PC


Breaking away from the corporate image, the HP's is aiming their new iPaq rx3715 Mobile Media Companion squarely at the home user. Besides some cosmetic differences (a new casing and a brand new multimedia-focused welcome screen), and the usual PDA...

HP iPaq rx3715 Mobile Media Companion review:


Extralong battery life; impressive performance; integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth; built-in camera; user-replaceable battery.

Complicated and immature Mobile Media software.

While the HP iPaq rx3715's Media Companion functions didn't inspire us, this PDA's features and top-notch performance make it well worth considering.

HP iPAQ rx3715 Pocket PC


The iPAQ 3715 is at the top of the line among HP's new Fall 2004 "Digital Entertainment" line of iPAQ Pocket PCs. The iPAQ rz1715 and the rx3000 series models comprise the Digital Entertainment iPAQs, and these target consumers with a taste for...

Excellent camera, great display, loud sound, strong performance and dual wireless. WiFi has great range and HP's Bluetooth software (Widcomm) is as always, solid and user friendly

Could use more RAM, though the extremely large File Store area makes up for this. If you're an action gamer, the d-pad may not thrill you

An excellent unit. it's compact, yet has just about every feature you could want in a PDA. The 1.2MP camera takes surprisingly good photos and decent videos with very good audio. The iPAQ has a great screen, nice multimedia software, and strong...
