Hi everybody! I've been sitting on the fence about a new PDA. At first I thought a PDA phone as I thought surfing the web and checking email was most important. As I look into the software available for it, I realized a PDA was or will soon be an essential. I now not sure PDA or PDA phone anymore. As I see all the stuff available I realized surfing may be less as important.

What is available that you use most?
I was looking into a weight traing program that tracks.
A to do list(I'm so into seo and my websites, I often forget how old or what my name is when people ask me. My mind is still attached to work)
There are a few cute novelty things like watching a dvd and playing games,
But what useful software is webmaster oriented?

And is the internet capabilities most important of the PDA? And if so would that mean that I'd be better off with a pda phone? or a PDA and a cell phone. Decisions, decisions.

Tough decision. I know, I faced the same one. Here's what I came to for my resolution...

PDA phones are in their infancy... The windows CE phone I looked at only had 8 hours of standby time. That wasn't going to cut it.

At home, the in-laws, the parents, work, and a lot of places I go already have wireless interent, so I bought a WIN CE device with 802.11b WNIC built in. More than does what I want. If I need something badly enough that I have to get on the internet where there is no WLAN, I simply plug my laptop into my cell and surf from there.

I'd say to wait on a PDA phone until later this year... the technology just doesn't seem to have caught up yet.
