The Compaq C-series was a series of Handheld PCs running on Windows CE 2.0,[1] manufactured by Compaq from 1998.[2]


The C-Series replaced the Aero line of handheld PCs. It was succeeded, as with other HPCs manufactured by Compaq and HP, by the iPAQ line of Pocket PCs.

The C-series featured an integrated 33.6kbit/s modem.[1] For wireless data transfer, it sported an IrDA port.

An upgrade to Windows CE 2.11 could be purchased from Compaq for US $109.[3]

Targus Inc. manufactured a leather portfolio case for the C-series, under the Compaq brand.[4]
