Pocket PC question.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ages ago my friend's dad had a PocketPC that was running Windows XP. GUI, programs, functionality, everything. It had a qwerty keyboard and a resistive touchscreen, and I remember it looked a bit like the T-Mobile G1/Dream.

I looked around on the net because I was interested in buying one, but I couldn't find any.

Do any of you know about something like this or is this a fabricated memory from my childhood? (that tends to happen sometimes.)

The HTC HD2 can now run windows 7 as well as WM7, android and good old WM6.5... I think thats the best you can get, and I've never heard of XP being on phones (although I could be mistaken).

Windows phone 7. I think a good amount of the latest android phones could handle a virtual desktop

Maybe youre referring to ultra mobile pc's?? My dad a couple years back had a HTC advantage x7500 I believe. Its windows mobile.. not sure if thats what youre talking about.

It wasn't a phone, he couldn't call people on it. It seemed like a laptop with the formfactor of a large touch screen slider phone.

ooooh, yeah, those exist. I can't remember what their called but their around, I thought you were talking about a phone so yeah.

Just so you know as well, the HTC HD2 can run windows 7 (the desktop version, not win mo 7), just do some googling if you don't believe me.

I'm on Verizon, so no HD2 for me.

I did look into it though.
