Both upgrades include FEDEX 2ND DAY AIR and as a Fall special we are including the stylus lock replacement at no extra cost. If you have signed up for the upgrades already and are on our waiting list, or your unit is in-house currently, you will receive the new prices when we perform the upgrade.
10/01/01:  Replacement Touchscreens for the iPAQ 3100/3600 series are now available. PCE2000 & Times2Tech have specially-made a replacement touchscreen for the iPAQ 3100/3600 series to replace cracked or severely scratched touchscreens. We guarantee that our touchscreens will perform the same as the original touchscreen.
09/17/01:  Do-It-Yourself Li-ION Replacement Battery Kits for the iPAQ 3100/3600 series are now available.
08/07/01:  We are pleased to announce that our much anticipated 128MB internal RAM upgrades for the iPAQ H3100 & 3600 series are now available. Due to a ROM issue, the iPAQ does not support the 128MB natively. In a joint venture with Times2 Tech, we have developed a proprietary driver to enable the additional 64MB to be accessible off of the root as another storage device. Our driver is a very small overlay that is transparent to the user and even disables itself once the BIOS supports the extra capacity.
 

For those of you that have already purchased the 64MB upgrade from us, as promised, we are offering a trade-in allowance for your 64MB upgrade.

Trade-in allowance:

  • If you purchased your 64MB upgrade before July 1st, 2001 your trade-in credit is $49, which makes the 128MB upgrade cost $300
  • If you purchased your 64MB upgrade between July 1st, 2001 and July 21st, your trade-in credit is $99, which makes the 128MB upgrade cost $250.
  • If you purchased your 64MB upgrade between July 22nd, 2001 and August 6th, 2001, your trade-in credit is $129, which makes the 128MB upgrade cost $220.
  • If you purchase the 64MB upgrade after August 6th, 2001 and later you want the 128MB upgrade, then your trade-in credit will be $49, which makes the 128MB upgrade cost $300.
