Notes:

1.  The HP Jornada has a modem that is controllerless or full software. This improves the actual throughput of the modem and also overall system performance when the unit is communicating via modem. It's significantly better than a pure soft modem while not sacrificing the reduced power consumption.

2.  CF+ stands for a CompactFlash slot that supports peripherals such as Ethernet, serial, pager or a modem.

3.  The USB port includes a driver for a mouse only (except Husky FeX which uses USB for synchronization).  See my USB FAQ for details.
