It's HP's new pocket PC, which runs Microsoft Pocket PC, the company's new operating system for palmtops, a vast improvement on the old (and much maligned) Windows CE. Along with the Pocket equivalent of MS Office, Jornadas can also access the web, e-mail and SMS via mobile phones. Free downloadable fax and WAP software is also available Accessories for GPRS networks (new superfast mobiles) and Bluetooth (short-range wireless communication) are apparently also planned.

What's the competition?

Where do you start? There are innumerable palm-type devices out there.

Suffice to say, the Jornadas are some of the flashiest and most up to date. For the next few weeks at least.

When can I get it?

Available nationwide now, priced from pounds 369 to pounds 439, depending on the model.
