Normally you should have a control panel applet called About (Star-Settings-System).

See here http://www.mobile-review.com/pda/articles/wm-aku-en.shtml and here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adaptation_kit_upgrade

There is also a registry key with the platform information at HKLM\Platform

For the black jack there is another possibility:
    * To check the software version, enter the following information on the phone:    *#1234#
    * Both the PDA and Phone versions should show i617UCHJ1
 the WM version is then   "Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.1 (AKU1.0.1)"

The Hp Ipaq K3 GListen should run Windows Mobile 6.5 Prof.
