I recently purchased my Palm Z22 due to downgrading from a Sony Clie X70v due to the size of the previous handheld and as a wheelchair user it was way too big for me to carry around with me.

Upon receiving my Palm Z22 I noted the usual Palm packaging of Orange box with Charger, USB Cable, Software Disks and literature that you would expect with a new handheld organiser and of course the palm Z22 was in a plastic casing which held the orange box which I felt was a bit stupid cause even though its suspended from the edges I would still be worried about damage to the handheld more internally rather than externally.

When you first receive your Palm Z22 you will need to charge it for 2 hours minimum as when you first try to turn on the handheld it doesn't work and will only work after the initial 2 hour charge, not even connecting the device to your PC/Laptop via the USB cable supplied does it work so if you want to use your handheld device upon opening the box you'll just have to wait whether you like it or not. And if you're like me you probably won't!

The Full Contents of the Box are as follows:

Palm® Z22 handheld
USB sync cable
Power adapter
3-step setup guide
Graffiti® 2 sticker
Software Install CD-ROM with Palm® Desktop, Tutorial, Getting Started Guide, User Guide and Bonus Software
Sudoku game (Only where available)

The Palm Z22 is feature rich with the usual features such as contact organiser, date book and calendar among other great features of which I shall include below:

Affordable personal organiser
Simple, easy to use
Keeps your information safe
Cool and compact design
Personalise it with photos, shopping lists and handy bonus software
Bright, colourful screen
Infrared Port: Share information such as Contacts between compatible devices via the "beam" function
Colour Touchscreen Display: Great for viewing photos of family and friends
Calendar Button: Tap for direct access to your Calendar
5-Way Navigator: Navigate through your information with one-handed ease. Click to make a selection
Up-Down-Left- Right Button: Click to move around on the display
Home Button: Tap for direct access to all your applications
Menu Button: Tap to access options in an application
Graffiti® 2 Writing Area: Enter letters & numbers with your stylus
Sync Button: Synchronise your info with your computer
Find Button: Find anything on your organiser with a tap
Contacts Button: Tap for direct access to your Contacts
Charging Connector: A rechargeable battery keeps you going
Mini USB Connector: Share and back up info to your computer

You will also be able to install other software which you get on the installation disk. Mine also came with the popular new game Sudoku which I have chosen not to install as I don't know how to play the game but if you are a fan and you can find a palm z22 with sudoku then you'll be over the moon.

The only downfall I didn't like about the Palm Z22 is the lack of memory (32mb to be exact) compared to some of the handheld devices you can get on the market these days but when you consider that you'll only be paying around £69.99 for this item then you can't expect too much.

All in all I am very happy with this device and I would encourage anyone who is looking for a cheap but stylish handheld PDA to go out and buy the Palm Z22 as you won't go far wrong, it may even be suitable for a young teenager too thats just how easy it is to use.
