"Colour makes the difference"

I was given the Palm IIIc as a gift, and was a bit sceptical at first. But after a couple of months with it, I'm a convert.
It's screen is very contrasty in all lighting conditions, and it's only a bit heavier than the IIIx series.
Syncing to the PC goes very smoothly and quickly. Recharging the battery is easy while you are hot-syncing, and battery life seems to be good.
The software support for the IIIc is massive (it runs all Palm s/w) and one of the best applications is Avantgo, which will download all your favourite web-channels when you hot-sync. I use this to get share info and news from Yahoo just before I leave work, which I can then read on the train on the way home. Some of the games you can download are really fun: Pacman and Galaxian look just like the old arcade games. I also use Albumtogo to display digital snaps - quite a 21st Century way of carrying your family photos around!

It costs a bit more than some of the others, but I think for the colour and range of software available, it's worth it. Shame there's no MP3 player built in....
