I caught up with Phil McKinney, HP’s Chief Technology Officer for Personal Systems Group, at CES 2008 and we talked about what he’s carrying these days. He uses an iPaq 610 with Windows Mobile and a Compaq 2710p, with an integrated 3G wireless broadband card.
Phil’s known for being a gadget junkie and carrying around prototypes, but he said he’d have to shoot me if I peeked inside his briefcase. He’s probably got some James Bond-esque gadgets in there since he’s got HP Labs at his disposal. When I was in China last year, Phil showed off a WebSigns (point and search) equiped iPaq and an eBook reader.
