I have had this little PDA for just over three years now, and I'm very pleased with it. I got it for about £50 in the clearout section of PC world when I was looking for a replacement for my old Sharp organiser. One of the main plus points is that it is very easy to use. The built in applications...

This PDA I found to be good in many ways, but also to have some disadvantages. Advantages: Good Price - This PDA retails for around the £120 mark and it can even be purchased for cheaper with some retailers - £120 for a PDA is great value, considering that most of them retail for above £200. Ease...

I own a Palm Zire 31 and i hink it is pretty good. I got mine when it first came out so I paid $269 dollars, but the price has gone down since then. I like the style of it, and it is easy to use and lightweight, but I don't like how you have to constantly recharge it and it dosen't have much memory so you have to buy those card thingies... But overall it is a pretty good handheld device.

Product Information : Palm Zire 31

Manufacturer's product description

The Zire 31 handheld from palmOne gives you outstanding organization at an affordable price. Take, for example, its bright, easy-to-read color screen. Or the wide range of organizational features - from contacts and calendar to memos and a note pad. Not to mention the MP31 player that lets you carry your tunes wherever you go. An Agenda view lets you stay ahead of your day, and the ability to attach a photo to a contact means you can always put a name with a face. Synchronization with Outlook and color-coded categories make it easy to track your schedule - and everyone else's, too. Manage your money, track car maintenance, view photos - then play a game, read a book, even listen to audio books2. It all comes right in the box. Listen to your tunes on the go using the speaker, or add stereo headphones1. Play MP3s while you're scheduling appointments, adding contacts, or just enjoying a spare moment. With software included in the box, you can use your desktop keyboard to enter information to your Windows or Mac computer, then transfer it to your Zire 31 handheld. That way your information is always safe and secure.
