Legacy HP iPAQ hx4700 Gets Windows Mobile 6.5 Upgrade

By Brandon Miniman June 21, 2010, 5:24 pm

Those of you that have been a part of the Windows Mobile/Pocket PC community for a long time may remember the HP iPAQ hx4700, a now six-year-old device that once proved that HP was capable of making innovative mobile devices (see our review for a blast from the past). It was among the first handhelds to use a VGA 640×480 display, plus it had a handy track pad that controlled a virtual mouse cursor on the display. It also pushed the edge of CPU speed, packing a 624MHz Intel CPU (interestingly, mobile device CPUs haven't move much past that clock speed until recently with the Qualcomm Snapdragon, Samsung Hummingbird, and Apple A4).


In 2004, the device shipped with Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition. Thanks to XDA, those of you with an hx4700 can dust it off and load Windows Mobile 6.5!
