A miracle in the palm of your hand

AdvantagesSmall, light, very well featured

DisadvantagesBlue paint around the edge rubs off

"...purposes. You can use the Palm Desktop supplied on a CD with the PDA or simply synchronise with Microsoft products. It’s as easy as plugging the USB cable in and pressing a button on the PDA. Far easier to set up and use than the old cradle system. The inbuilt calendar has proved its worth on many occasions, saving me from embarrassing lapses of memory and the amazing ability of this tiny unit to read, display and allow editing of Excel format ..."

Boy what an upgrade

AdvantagesLight, Great screen definition

DisadvantagesPaint rubs off and looks tatty

"...well. The unit runs Palm OS Garnet (5.2.8) and has 32 megs of RAM, 24 of which are available to the user. The unit is Bluetooth compatible and its possible to connect to the internet either via your bluetooth mobile phone or via a bluetooth dongle or accesspoint. We found the bluetooth wireless access point to be far superior to the dongle as it gave a faster connection. The only downside is that compared to a PC the palm is relatively slow ..." Read review

Palm Zire 72, my new school planner

AdvantagesCheap, Fast, Not a windows wannabe, digital camera built in!!

Disadvantagesnot that many programs available

"The Palm Zire 72, the powerful PDA for those on a budget. I use it all the time in school for keeping an eye on timetables, meetings, clubs and homeworks set. It has a simple menu system and fantastic hand writing recognition. It does truely put Pocket PC systems to shame. I borrowed an Ipaq H5555 for an evening to compare to this Palm Zire and have to say that it was slower and a lot more bulkier than the Palm. Yes it does have wi-fi but i don't ..." Read review

Probably the best colour screen ever on a PDA?

Advantageslooks good - colour screen - great features - mp3, camera, memory expansion

Disadvantagesbattery life, no headphones

"...how often you use them!) * Palm OS sofware * Digital Camera (quailty is just below what you would expect from a sole digital camera - but it is much better outside) *32meg of on board memory - but there is an expansion slot of the SDRAM cards, mine has a 128 meg card in it and it runs beautifully with mp3's and video on it. * Bluetooth connectivity (no wireless LAN but most phones and computers support bluetooth now anyway) *Voice Memo *Software: ..."

Excellent Value

AdvantagesCamera/Camcorder, Bright Screen, Bluetooth, Responsive

DisadvantagesBattery Life, Slow MP3 Transfer, Low Internal Memory

"A great all-rounder, perfect for business or leisure use. Business: Ships with 'documents to go' - a great package that syncs nicely with microsoft office. Large hi-res screen displays data clearly, and is great for viewing websites. Very easy to sync with computer, masty copies of data stored on hard drive for back-up, as the internal memory is volitile, so data is lost when out of battery. Leisure: RealOne player as standard - fantastic ..." Read review
