“Let me Read you Fortune!!”

published 09/07/2000

ProMakes my life easier, light, compact

Conscost

I purchased my PALM V at the beginning of the school year. I'm currently a college student, so I find it very important to get things organized. I used to use a daily planner (yeah one of those paper things). But let me tell you, my organization has increased dramatically since buying this PDA...

“Give me five”

published 14/12/2000

ProSmall, Adaptable, Powerful

ConsNot a huge ammount of memory

A question I would ask any owner of a Palm Pilot is "How has it changed your life?". The wallet sized organiser packs a mighty punch and was one of the first PDA (personal digital assistant) that fits neatly in your pocket. For anyone who has never seen one of these neat devices it is around the...

OK, so the Palm V isn't exactly the hottest new thing on the planet. I've had mine for about eighteen months, and it's still going strong. It's all there - address book, date book, to do list, notepad, calculator. If that isn't enough, hook it up to a PC and you can also download a variety of...

Do you want to be able to sync up to your Outlook account at work? Do you want to be able to sync up to your Outlook calendar? Do you want a PDA that's light, easy to carry around, and (perhaps most importantly), whose battery lasts for ages and ages and ages? Those were my key criteria, and the...

ProLight, good battery life

ConsNone

I have now been a user of the Palm V for nearly a year now, and have no complaints whatsoever. Firstly, this is no replacement for a PC, and comparing one against a WinCE device is unfair. Yes, I surf the web, have e-mail, and WAP, and even ICQ! As you may guess, I use the Palm with both a Palm...

I couldn't function without it. It's a shame I have to write 80 words because that phrase sums it up. Mail, addresses, memos, games (so addictive), re-chargeable (long, long life) etc etc. Need I go on. You could spend more on a PDA but I feel very strongly that if you can live without a colour...

Conslack of memory.

If you are looking at buying a Palm V, then DON'T. It has so little memory that it really makes it useless. When I first got it, I was pleased with it until I started downloading applications to it. Download one or two decent applications and you're struggling - and that's before you even add any...

Connect to the internet with your palm and a mobile phone! I've recently bought Palm's Mobile Internet kit and it rocks!!! I can use my Palm V and my mobile phone (Motorola L7089) to wirelessly access the internet. The software is very reasonably priced, dead easy to install (as long as you have...

ConsUnintuitive, difficult to input.

I have to admit it - I didn't buy a Palm V - I won one, and with that in mind, I'm still disappointed with it. Yes, it's nice to look at, and yes, it synchronises with your PC rather nicely, but overall, the package left me cold. Firstly, the stylus - I'm sorry, but I don't actually want to learn...

ConsThe panic attack when I think I've lost it!

I upgraded to the Palm V when it first came out from an original PalmPilot. I had used the pilot extensively but the V had one major advantage; size. I wouldn't carry the Pilot in my shirt pocket as it was slightly too large, but the V is ideal. I carry it whilst at work continuously. This means...
