Undoubtedly cranky about Palm's dominance in the handheld PC market, Hewlett Packard has fired back with a formidable response: the HP Jornada 548 ($599). Sporting 32MB RAM, a 133 MHz 32-bit Hitachi processor and eight hours of battery life, Jornada's distinguishing characteristics are its brilliant color-display panel and its ability to offer relatively robust multimedia capability. It also runs on Microsoft's new PocketPC operating system, which promises seamless compatibility with existing Microsoft software. Definitely worth a test drive.
