The Hewlett Packard Jornada 540 series Body-Suit by Extreme Limit, is a pebbly black leather, wallet style, play-through case. The model I was presented to review does not have a belt clip, however, that option is available if you need it.

In case you haven’t heard of Extreme Limit before, their web site proclaims them to be the leading Japanese manufacturer of bags & cases for mobile computers. I am inclined to believe their claim.

If you have read my Palm IIIc Extreme Limit Body Suit Review, you will realize that this review is more of the same. Extreme Limit continues to put out an excellent product with superior craftsmanship, for many types of PDAs.

Something I need to point out right now is that since I consider Extreme Limit’s PDA cases to be among the finest made, I judge them by a little stricter standard than other “mass-produced” cases.If you feel like I am getting a little picky, then just understand that that is where I am coming from.

The first thing you will observe about the Body Suit is, once again, the contrasting white stitching that goes around all of the edges. This case utilizes a tab closure, also with the contrasting stitching. The black pebbly leather is thick and stiff, and has an expensive look to it.

You’ll notice that on the rear bottom right, there is a discreet Extreme Limit logo.

This is a case that either a man or woman would be proud to carry, I am thankful that Extreme Limit decided to make this model available without a belt-clip, as I can now toss it into my gear-bag, without thinking about if the little metal “button” is going to smack into anything in there. For all you men out there, you can just as easily toss it into your briefcase.

As with Extreme Limit’s other cases, once the wallet flap is covering the screen of your Jornada, it seems to offer quite a bit of protection. It should shield your screen from any sudden knocks or dings.

Extreme Limit’s cases are very rectangular, and the Jornada case is no exception. However, because it is coupled with enough space for your ID and money necessities, the case almost looks like a “clutch” type hand wallet. In fact, this case really feels and looks good in your hand. I have found myself leaving my bag at home, and carrying nothing but this case, loaded with my 548, Driver’s License, and my Amex when I needed to make a quick run to the store.

When the Body Suit is closed, it will cover every bit of your Jornada – except for the areas where it matters – namely your jog dial, the recorder button, and the top surface. Since the top is open, you have quick access to your IR port, compact flash door, headphone jack, and the unique top button/charge-light.

There is also a ring on the side, if you’d like to attach a wrist or neck lanyard to the case – hey, I know there are some people out there that might want to do this, so I’m just letting you know.

One thing that I feel really speaks well about the planning that went into this case, is the fact that there is a nice round cutout on the rear side, perfectly lined up with your reset button.

When the tab flap is closed, it will cross the top of your Jornada, effectively holding everything in place, safely. Even with the tab fastened – you still have access to the IR port and the headphones jack.

While nothing actually restrains your Jornada in the case when the wallet is open, the sides of the case will grasp your PDA sufficiently that it won’t fall out.

This is a top-loading case, and you will find that once the Jornada is inserted, it will nestle in a satin lined, fitted area with cutouts that match where they need to be. As on the outside of the case, there is contrasting white stitching around every edge.

The bottom half of the case, when it is opened, has two slots for an ID & credit card. Unlike the IIIc case, there is no deep pocket to hide your cash in; they did away with it all together. I guess I won’t have to worry about holding up any more convenience store lines while I fish for my money! ;-)

The wallet portion of the Body suit is situated so that you can hold the Jornada in your left hand, and whip out your credit or ID cards from the bottom portion of the wallet with your right. This is a great feature, as long as you are right handed. Perhaps a way to make it more ambidextrous would have been to make cardholders that went across the flap, instead of along the flap. Similar to the way that Vaja makes their cardholders.

There is a rectangular cutout at the bottom of the pocket that cradles your Jornada, designed so that you can use the travel charger. You will have to take your PDA out of the case to synchronize, but it is very easy to do this: you simply use a finger to push your Jornada up from the bottom cutout, and then grasp the top of your Jornada as it exits the top slot.

The cutout around the Jornada’s screen is perfectly proportioned, and they did a “free-form” cutout area to accommodate the power and hot buttons. There are special holes where the speaker is, so volume on your unit is hardly affected, if at all, when it is in this case. This split-face window design area involves one of the few gripes I have about this case. There are actually two gripes, but I’ll get to the other a little later:

Gripe #1: I wish that Extreme Limit would have just made one opening in the screen and button area, with no leather “bar” between the screen and the buttons. Because they did include the bar, the double stitching looks a bit cramped, and is not as perfectly spaced as everywhere else on the case. Because of the leather bar, I also feel like the button area is a little too tight when playing games.

If you have tried many cases at all, you have probably noticed that it is usually best to disable your hot buttons when the Jornada is turned off. Most cases tend to push against the buttons and inadvertently turn your PDA on. This brings up another great feature of the Body Suit case: because the leather is so thick it creates a buffer between the case’s flip-cover and the hot buttons. It is just about impossible to accidentally turn your Jornada on. The downside to this is that you may want to use your stylus to turn on your power button, as you might not be able to get a good “push” in otherwise due to the thick leather right next to the button..

As with their other Body Suit PDA Cases, you can fold the wallet portion of the case underneath, and stick the tab into its slot, instantly creating a handy easel for your desktop. This also fully exposes the charging cutout that I referred to earlier, for when you are in the car.

I am a bit conflicted on the last feature I am going to mention. In fact, this is where my #2 gripe comes from.

Hp Jornada 540 Series Games List

As you should be aware by now, the Jornada 540 series happens to be the only Pocket PC with a built in flip cover. Inside that flip cover is the tray where the plastic “Popsicle-stick” stylus is kept. Since you have to remove the flip cover in order to insert your Jornada into this case, you might be wondering where you are supposed to put your necessary stylus. (As if the above picture didn’t give that away…) J

Extreme Limit has made a very clever little side-holster for the stylus. Especially clever, because not only will it accept the stock stylus, it will also accept just about any other PDA sized stylus. This is a really great thing for those that hate the stock stylus, and want to use something else – without carrying a separate pen-sized implement. The picture I am showing here is of the PDA panache Handspring Visor stylus, since I have already shown you a picture with the stock stylus.

Unfortunately, the fastener on the top of the holster is where Gripe #2 comes in: Because they used Velcro to close the two tabs that make up the loop, the tabs just will not lay straight, and they stick out quite a bit. I think that Extreme Limit could have used either a leather or an elastic loop, and achieved their desired effect.

I think that this could be a perfect case, if Extreme limit would do away with the split face window design, and eliminate the Velcro on the holster. That is my humble opinion, so take it for what it’s worth. J

Price: $46.53, depending on daily Yen / Dollar conversion. Also available in a belt-clip model for approx. $49.29

Pros:
Openings for every button & slot
Beautiful, slightly custom look
Can carry different stylus, rather than stock HP “Popsicle stick”

Cons:
Stitching between screen & buttons looks crooked (picky, I know!)
Would rather stylus holder had not used Velcro

Pocket PCs[edit]

Jornada 520 series[edit]

Hp Jornada 520

The Jornada 520 series was HP's answer to an affordable Pocket PC, and could be described as a stripped down version of the 540 series. It featured 16 MB of RAM, a Type I CompactFlash slot,[6] a 256 color screen, and a 133 MHz SH3 processor. It ran on a variant of Windows CE 3.0 dubbed 'Pocket PC 2000'. The 520 allowed for an optional flip cover like the 540 models, but was only capable of supporting a serial cable for synchronization. The Jornada 520 series had the same form factor as the 540, but was silver.

Jornada 540 series[edit]

The Jornada 540 series was one of the original models of Pocket PC, when the platform was first announced. Sharing the Operating System, CPU and memory card slot of the 520 series, it featured a 12-bit display (originally advertised as 16-bit display) and USB connectivity. Two models were made available that were identical except for the amount of RAM. The 545 had 16 MB RAM and the 548 had 32 MB RAM.

Jornada 560 series[edit]

The Jornada 560 series was the first to run on the Pocket PC 2002 operating system and the only Pocket PC Jornada to use the StrongARM processor. It debuted in October 2001, and featured a reflective LCD screen with an ambient light sensor, and had a completely redone form factor. It also featured a flashable ROM that allowed for updates to the operating system. The Windows Mobile 2003 operating system, however, was never released by HP for this model.

Phones[edit]

Jornada 928[edit]

The Jornada 928 was Hewlett-Packard's sole Pocket PC phone under the Jornada branding and only available in the United Kingdom. It ran on the Pocket PC 2002 Phone Edition operating system, and had 64 MB of RAM with 32 MB flashable ROM. It used a Texas Instruments OMAP 710 processor clocked at 150 MHz. The phone was a European GSMDual band device capable of accessing GPRS.

Integrated solutions[edit]

HP Labs in Bristol used the GPRS Jornada devices initially with the 568 and later the 928 to create some of the first connected solutions and wearable computing in Bristol ranging from interactive tours of the city[7] to instant language translation [8] trials were also conducted by HP senior executives with major clients such as Disney to explore the use of the technologies in business applications.

Prototypes[edit]

Hewlett-Packard's Appliances and Calculators Organization (ACO) in Melbourne, Australia, also worked on the HP Jornada X25 (F1904A) aka 'Calypso', a PDA based on a customized Linux version provided by Lineo Australia and Taiwan. It came with a StrongARM 133 MHz processor, 8 MB of flash, 32 MB of RAM, compact flash card expansion port, infra-red connectivity and USB. Similar to the Windows CE-based HP Xpander, which was cancelled in November 2001, the X25 project was cancelled close to release in early 2002 as well. Between 140 and 200 units were manufactured in a pre-production run.[9][10][11][12]
