“Me - I'd prefer a diary”

published 26/01/2004

ProCheap - runs well on AAA batteries

ConsMono - small memory - basically a diary

So, in 16?? (fill in the blanks if you know) Samuel Pepys wrote a huge diary that stands still as a historical document of the time. In the same century, Daniel Defoe toured around the whole of England and Wales and his account of his journey in similar style stands as a historical record of the...

Consnone

If you are anything like me, you will have found that as you have got older - I know I am still only in my 30s - but I have got three children!!, you will have found that your memory will have gone. I find that I now have to keep a note of everything to ensure that I do not forget anything...

ProCheap, fast, reliable, good software, big memory

ConsNone

The recent introduction on the Palm m105 will have a lot of people wondering if now is the time to ditch the old diary and switch to a handheld. OK, £140 is a lot more than you would pay for a Filofax, but it is a real bargain, and a really useful bit of kit. For anyone who already uses MS...

“A Very Affordable Solution”

published 19/10/2002

ProPrice and Versatility

ConsOlder operating system

Originally, when the first PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants) appeared on the shelves, I regarded them in the same light as their papery Filofax predecessors – useful for some but basically a fad. I was wrong. I purchased my Palm M105 with one purpose in mind and that was to use it as a portable...

I bought my m105 from The Link and it was only £100 - I have seen it in other stores for the same price. You enter information either by tapping the end of the stylus (pen) on an on-screen keyboard, or by learning how to write characters in a slightly stylised way so the m105 can understand...

“Buy this pda!!!”

published 12/08/2003

ProCheap every thing you need really

Consnot colour

a pda (personall digital assistant) is a organiser with a diference. i hope this review will help you in your choice. They say sequels are never any good, but that's in the movie business and doesn't really count for PDAs. Palm's m105 is the successor to Palm's first entry-level series model with...

“Palm m105”

published 16/06/2004

ProSmall, stylish, large memory, changeable covers

ConsSmall screen, not rechargeable

I bought one of these Palms recently. When it arrived, I opened it and was fascinated with the small little device. I set it up on my PC and went on the internet and discovered there are thousands of programs for palms. This model has 8mb RAM, well sufficient for what I use it for. The only fault...

“The best of the budget world”

published 20/03/2004

ProCheap, user-friendly

ConsGreyscale display

The Palm M105 is one of the cheapest Palms you can buy. And so when I bought one, I thought I’d be getting a cheap-and-cheerful thing that I’d use for a while and then discard. What I got in fact was a great lightweight and robust computer. Don’t be put off buy the greyscale screen, the Palm M105...
