HP accessorises the Jornada

Hewlett-Packard has announced a range of new accessories for the HP Jornada Pocket PC. A new extended battery pack means users can now get up to 10 hours more battery life than a standard battery. The new battery provides 24 hours of continuous use when the back light is off, according to the vendor. HP has also launched a battery with MMC expansion so users can still utilise the connectivity of their CompactFlash and MMC slots. A replacement cover with built-in keyboard was also announced. The cover uses the CompactFlash slot to transfer data into the Jornada. The battery pack, MMC expansion battery and keyboard are priced at $269, $199 and $199, respectively, and are available immediately.
