So what is the NEC MobilePro P300? It is essentially a Windows PDA running OS Pocket PC 2002. It has a 206Mhz Strong ARM processor, with 32MB of RAM and 32 ROM. The PDA has a 3.8" screen with 64k colours and a resolution of 320x240.

After charging it up I was pleasantly surprised that it was still able to hold a significant amount of battery charge. It ha
If out in public using my PDA I’m sure I will receive some funny glances due to the old technology I’m using but little do they know how powerful a device it is when put to good use.
