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.
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.
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.
