Pocket PC"> OmniSky Internet Service for Pocket PC
Teamed with wireless modems from Sierra Wireless and Novatel Wireless, OmniSkys Internet service ably connects HP Jornada and Compaq iPaq Pocket PC users to e-mail and the Web. Although we preferred the iPaq combination for its flexibility, the Jornada package performed well and costs significantly less.
LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // The iPaq combination costs more than the Jornada package, but its hardware can be used with future devices as well. Fast messaging access; useful Web clipping channels. iPaq hardware is costly; Jornada hardware cannot be used with other devices. OmniSky Corp., Palo Alto, Calif.; (800) 860-5767; www.omnisky.com
SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // Pocket PC users can access company e-mail on the road with relatively little setup.
