Hewlett-Packard's Windows CE 2.0 handheld PC, the 620LX, will not ship until the spring, the company admitted last week. It was slated to ship in January. However, Hewlett-Packard (HP) has already begun shipping the 620LX in the US. A HP spokesman denied there is any problem with the product, but could provide no explanation for the UK shipping delay. When it finally reaches UK shores, the 620LX will combine a 256-colour, 640x240-pixel screen and a 75MHz Hitachi processor with 16Mb of RAM. Features include data security; month-at-a-glance viewing for one to six month's appointments; financial and unit conversion software; bFAX Pro for sending and receiving faxes; and bFind, a universal search utility. Other features include a voice-recorder with built-in microphone and voice compression engine, business applications offered by Windows CE 2.0, including Microsoft Pocket Outlook with contact management, calendars and task capabilities, and Inbox, with Email attachment support, group scheduling and data exchange with Outlook. The HP 620LX palmtop PC is expected to have an approximate street price of #699. The product is now expected to be available in March 1998. HP: 0990 474747.
