At first glance most people will think the HP

Jornada 820 is a subnotebook. This most

conventional-looking of the first wave of H/PC

Pro devices looks like a slightly underfed

notebook; it has a clamshell design and a

touch pad. Jornada is Spanish for journey, but

the company wants you to pronounce it

"Jornada," not "Hornada." The Jornadaās

expected street price of $1,000 includes a 56K V.90 internal modem. If you prefer a touch pad to a touch screen and want a conventional notebook-style design, the Jornada 820 is a likely candidate with an unexpected name.

Extensive specs and company propaganda, third party mag rated

great article regarding IA and OS-nonspecific.

Microsoft Office--and in all likelihood Windows--are on their way to becoming relics. The

days of shrink-wrapped, retail software are waning. Web-based delivery of applications

will change the nature of a one-size-fits-all business suite. And emerging Internet

appliances--such as NetPliance.com's Windows-less IPAD, Handspring's Visor, and the

near ubiquitous Palm Pilot--confirm that no one will give a hoot what OS is inside the box.

Dissagree with lots of the garbage/oponion except the last few tech-direction paragraphs.
