Expansion Pack - Pocket PC, Compaq Ipaq, circa 2002 Reg. No: HT 2237 8
- Expansion pack for Compaq iPAQ Pocket PC, circa 2002. It was originally purchased for the Museum Victoria Multimedia Manager as an organiser device but when he upgraded to a new machine was relegated to being a test machine for the development of hand held interfaces for the multimedia system. During this stage of its life it developed a problem which caused the display on the screen to become inverted.
This Compaq iPAQ is an early model made by Compaq which ran the Pocket PC 2002 operating system. The hardware specifications are a 200MHz StrongARM processor made by Intel, combined with 32MB RAM and 32MB ROM. It has a colour 200 x 300 pixel display and can be expanded by attaching a large plastic sleeve which can hold further expansion devices.
