good question.

here is the wikipedia page with some info to fill in the ppl who may be wondering what you are talking about

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Handheld_PC


A Handheld PC, or H/PC for short, is a term for a computer built around a form factor which is smaller than any standard laptop computer. It is sometimes referred to as a Palmtop. The first handheld device compatible with desktop IBM personal computers of the time was the Atari Portfolio of 1989. Another early model was the Poqet PC of 1989 and the Hewlett Packard HP 95LX of 1991. Other MS DOS compatible hand-held computers also existed.

Some Handheld PCs run on Microsoft's Windows CE operating system, with the term also covering Windows CE devices released by the broader commercial market.
[edit] Windows CE handheld PCs

The Handheld PC was a hardware design for PDA devices running Windows CE. It provides the appointment calendar functions usual for any PDA. The intent of Windows CE was to provide an environment for applications compatible with the Microsoft Windows operating system, on processors better suited to low-power operation in a portable device. Originally announced in 1996, the Handheld PC is distinctive from its more recent counterparts such as the Palm-Size PC, Pocket PC, or SmartPhone in that the specification provides for larger screen sizes as well as a keyboard.

To be classed as a Windows CE Handheld PC the device must[1]

* Run Microsoft's Windows CE
* Be bundled with an application suite only found through an OEM Platform Release and not in Windows CE itself
* Use ROM
* Have a screen supporting a resolution of greater than 480×240
* Include a keyboard
* Include a CompactFlash Slot
* Include a PC card Slot
* Include an infrared (IrDA) port
* Provide wired serial and/or USB connectivity

Examples of Handheld PC devices are the NEC MobilePro 900c, HP 320LX, HP Jornada 720, and Vadem Clio. A full list of Handheld PC class devices can be found at HPC:Factor in the Handheld PC Device Specifications List.

Microsoft has stopped developing for the Handheld PC since 2000, instead focusing development on the Pocket PC and Smartphone. Other Handheld PCs may not use Windows CE. Windows CE devices which match all of the hardware requirements of the H/PC specification but lack a keyboard are known as Windows CE Tablet PC or Webpad devices.
