Text of HP's Announcement:
Hewlett-Packard Company to Discontinue DOS-based Palmtop Series
The HP Jornada Family Provides a Great Windows CE Color Handheld alternative for discontinued DOS-based Palmtops
Hewlett-Packard Company today announced that its line of DOS-based Palmtops (the HP 200LX and the HP 1000CX) will be discontinued effective November 1, 1999 as HP migrates its line of Palmtop PCs to the more powerful and flexible Microsoft Windows CE operating system.
We encourage existing DOS-based Palmtop users to upgrade to the HP Jornada family of Handheld PCs, which use Windows CE. These color devices offer a broad array of features and opportunities to develop and run applications.
For customers transitioning from a DOS-based HP Palmtop PC to the Windows CE-based Jornada line, HP offers tools to assist in this migration*. Windows CE more easily integrates into a Microsoft Windows 95/98 and Windows NT computing environments.
To make the migration process a breeze, HP has some tools for customers and developers:
You can Purchase the HP 200LX still at the HP Shopping Village or through Normal Resellers
HP PIM Translation utility to transfer your HP 200LX data effortlessly to an HP Jornada handheld!*
DOS developers, check out Windows CE developers' resources.

* Editor's Note: HP PIM Translation Utility (for HP devices ONLY). This utility imports personal information manager (PIM) data (contacts, calendar, and task data) from an HP 100/200LX Palmtop PC or HP OmniGo Organizer into Microsoft Schedule+7.0a on your desktop PC. This allows transfer of PIM data from your older HP Palmtops to your HP CE handheld PCs. Refer to your user guide for more information.
