Palm m100

If you're new to the world of handheld organisers, the Palm m100 may just be the right fit ... more

for you. Under the hood, the Palm m100 features
much of the same great software and options we've
come to expect from Palm, such as scheduling and
contact applications and an infrared port to beam
information to other Palm users. But Palm has
added some new features to both the engine (which
runs Palm OS 3.5) and the chassis. The first thing
you notice is the new sleek, curvy design, which
helps make it fit more snugly and comfortably in
your hand. At just 4.4 ounces, the m100 is far
lighter than the Palm III series but features
essentially the same dimensions (4.66 by 3.12 by
0.72 inches). You can personalise your m100 by
snapping off the faceplate and replacing it with
different-coloured accessory faceplates. The Palm
m100 also includes a removable, double-hinged flip
cover, which, with the flick of the wrist, opens
like an original Star Trek communicator (though an
over-exuberant flick will send it flying off its
hinges). You can also display the date and time
through a little window when the cover is closed,
by pressing the scroll button. The screen is sharp
and has contrast-variable backlighting, though at
2x2 inches, it's slightly smaller than other Palm
devices. Pressing the buttons at the bottom of the
m100 automatically open the Calendar, Address
Book, and To Do List applications. The fourth
button maps to the new Note Pad application, which
allows you to write notes directly on the screen
in your own handwriting (though the original Memo
Pad application remains on the system). The 2 MB
of RAM may seem puny in comparison to other Palm
models (such as the 8 MB Palm IIIxe), and it is
not expandable. However, you can still store an
amount of data that would normally clog a paper
organiser (up to 6,000 addresses and 1,500 to-dos
and memos, according to Palm). A great plus for
users on the go is the new HotSync serial cable
(instead of the conventional cradle), which is
used to communicate with your PC and synchronise
your Palm m100 data with data stored in the
included Palm Desktop software application. Note
that while the Palm m100 ships with software for
both PC and Macintosh systems, Mac users will need
a separate serial cable. There is also a separate
USB cable available. While the Palm m100 isn't for
everyone, it is a fun and functional replacement
for your paper-based organiser and a great
introduction to the Palm family. --John Cascini

M100, good or bad

AdvantagesEfficient, good price, nice design, reliable, easy to use

DisadvantagesNot enough memory, screen is a bit small, difficult to read in some lighting conditions,

"I bought a M100 in September 2000. It's the first PDA I've used, so although I had expectations about it, I've since learned a lot about the good and bad aspects of this device. At first I thought it was absolutely great, and couldn't be faulted, I discovered a number of unexpected benefits, but now I can see a few minor disadvantages too... First the expected benefits.

My handheld friend

AdvantagesSmall, easy to use, very customisable

DisadvantagesStylus too light, cover can be too flimsy

"...doing an offer on the Palm series, and I decided that I'd take the oppurtunity to get the Palm M100 at half price. My mate had got a Palm device and had used it every available chance so why not me? After all at least I could synchronize my address book and calendar with the PC... The unit itself is pretty small and lightweight and has a handy flip top cover to stop the monochrome touch screen from getting scratched. I do have one gripe with the ..." Read review

An affordable handheld at last

AdvantagesLight, rugged, easy to operate.

DisadvantagesSlightly flimsy protective screen cover.

"I was given a Palm m100 handheld computer recently and I've seldom put it down since. Not only do I find this device invaluable in my job, keeping me organised, but when it comes to leisure time it pulls it's weight too (connecting to the internet for film reviews/cinema listings and SMS text messaging via infra-red connection to my mobile phone). Now I know that this machine has been criticised for having a smaller screen than other Palms and ..." Read review

I wanna hold your handheld

Advantageshandy size, cheap

Disadvantageslow memory capacity

"...but you don't want your Palm mistaken for one. Plus, this PDA is the runt of the family and a little bit flimsy as a result. Keep it away from your five year old nephew! Unfortunately these things will eat batteries. Pity that you can't get a solar panel that you could attach to your belt and then cable to the PDA. Also, don't try and store anything that wouldn't fit on a floppy disk. 2Mb is your limit on this baby. You can't add to it either. ..." Read review

Great for first time buyers

AdvantagesCheap, easy to get to grips with, plenty of additional applications available

DisadvantagesMore memory would be nice, stylus is less than brilliant

"...the power of its bigger Palm cousins (for example, the m100 only has 2MB of on-board memory, as opposed to the 8MB which is standard on the higher models) but for casual users, it's perfectly capable of doing everything you could possibly need it to; in fact, once you've gotten used to it, you'll wonder how you ever did without it! The 2MB of memory might not sound like a lot, especially if you're more used to PCs with storage typically measured ..." Read review
