You can add even more functionality to your HP Jornada Handheld PC by installing third-party software. A wide variety of commercial software is available for Microsoft (R) Windows CE, ranging from custom business applications to system utilities to games and entertainment. Some programs are available on the HP Jornada Handheld PC compact disc and the Desktop Software for Microsoft Windows CE compact disc included with your HP Jornada Handheld PC. Other programs are available from software distributors and on the Web.
You cannot run programs designed for Windows 95 or Windows NT on your HP Jornada Handheld PC. The only programs that will run on your HP Jornada Handheld PC must be designed specifically for Windows CE.
The HP Jornada Handheld PC compact disc includes many productivity-enhancing programs such as:
Microsoft Java virtual machine, which enables you to run cross-platform Java applets on your HP Jornada Handheld PC.
TrueSync CE 2.0 from Starfish Software for synchronizing your HP Jornada Handheld PC with the REX Classic and REX Pro Cards.
