Even though it is so cool with a great form factor (looks like a mini laptop with a usable qwerty thumb keyboard), bluetooth, and Wireless Networking, and a low-res video and digi cam, I am considering returning it because I'm not really sure I will use it all that much (I already take my laptop nearly everywhere).
Anyhow, I have two questions:
1)I figured I would ask everyone what they use as their PDA (brand and model), what they use it for, and is it worthwhile?
2)I have never owned a PDA, but I was a bit unimpressed with the Palm OS. Is there any awesome "must-have" software for it? Are the Windows' OS's that much better?
I also have a Compaq IPAQ. It is much bigger and not as powerfull but it does have a PCMCIA sleeve.
Any PPC device will sync with outlook. The other office products are not very useful on such a small screen. You can get a video card and keyboard that will let you use it like a laptop though.
If I want to do any serious "computing" I go the old-fasioned route and use a computer. PDA screens are too small to do anything major with, IMO... it would drive me nuts squinting at a website on one of those things.
I've got a laptop that goes on any longer-than-a-weekend trip with me, and I don't feel the need to get a PDA that's macho enough to compete with it. ;)
