This newsgroup is primarily for Handheld PCs, a platform that hasn't
been manufactured since around 2000. Questions about Windows Mobile
cell phones are much more likely to get useful answers if asked in
microsoft.public.smartphone. More below (in line).

The VZ6700 is an OEM-modified version of the HTC Appache; see

It is running Windows Mobile 5. HTC certainly has updates (see the
TyTN and S710 at ), but they
seem to be for GSM networks, not CDMA (which Verizon uses). I went to
the Verizon Wireless site, clicked a few buttons to get a list of
Phones & Smartphones with querty keyboards, and saw a list of devices
that mostly look like Blackberries.

So the answer to your question depends very much on which features of
the VZ6700 you want to keep, and which you want to upgrade.

Actually the last true H/PC was manufactured as late as 2004, and hp didn't
get out of the market until the end of 2002. HPC2000 was only released in
September 2000, so it wasn't that early.

Not that it in any way affects your redirect.

Sprint, which also uses CDMA, has already replaced the 6700 with the HTC
Mogul (aka 6800), which is a Windows Mobile 6 device. I'd assume that
Verizon will eventually get them as well.
