Looking for a new wireless PDA to buy

Hi,

I am looking for a new PDA (Palm or otherwise) to purchase. My contract with Palm for my Palm i705 is up in a couple of months, and I'd rather have one with a color screen and faster processor. Wireless connectivity would be a necessity.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

CompWorld

I have a different cell phone that is just for calls, I really did not want to combine the two. I was thinking either the Tungsten or and iPaq. But I am not sure if the iPaq has wireless Internet.

The best way to get wireless Internet on an Ipaq is to get a Pocket PC phone. I have tried the CF and PCMCIA cards that make an Ipaq or Dell Axim internet capable and they both sucked. Sprint was the better of the 2 and it was really expensive. T-mobile was very cheap but just did not work that well. I would look into one of the Sprint Pocket PC's. If you get one that is a cell phone you can get a better deal. The sprint CF card has a big battery thing that hangs off the back and it won't run without it. T-mobile does not have a CF card so you have to go PCMCIA.

Ah, I see. I would assume that all of the major carriers would have better technology by now. Guess its still in the under making.

Thanks for the info though.

do you know if any PDA's support javascript (not java)?
how can I tell if a page uses javascript? such as www.smsgui.com/pda/
?

I just got the Treo 600. I love it. I have Sprint service. I think they have the best data plans. I had a Axim x5. I liked the microsoft operating system and the screen. But it did not have a phone. The biggest benefits to the Treo were data access anywhere. At least anywhere sprint has service and the keyboard. I was never good at entering text in with stylist.

My Axim had the WiFi, but I did not come across to many hot spots that I could legally use.
