Compaq is preparing a version of its iPaq PDA will built-in wireless networking, one the company's contract manufacturers has let slip.

South Korea's LG Electronics said this week it had received an order from Compaq to build iPaqs for shipment mid-2002, DigiTimes reports.

LG wouldn't say how many iPaqs it has been contracted to make, but it did note that the deal is independent of Compaq's merger with Hewlett-Packard (it if goes ahead). It also said the contract centred on a wireless product.

Compaq already has add-on wireless packs for its current iPaqs lined up to ship in December. The unit supports both GSM and GPRS networks. A Bluetooth unit is due next month. At this stage it's not clear whether the LG device integrates cellular or local area wireless networking, but the smart money has to be on the former. ®
