I just got a Handspring Visor Neo [handspring.com], and I am starting to get used to using it. Synched it up with the PC, email, calendar, all that good stuff.

Does anyone have any experience with these PDAs? Anyone have any tips, tricks, cool stuff that they know of for it?

Congrats! (expecting full review ;)

The only major tip for Palm based is: www.freewarepalm.com

Thanks, I will have to wander around those sites for awhile...lots of stuff.

Does anyone have the Internet and email service? If so, is it worth it?

My best tip so far - digital books.

I downloaded loads of Conan Doyle and Wilkie Collins stuff - its legal and gave me loads to read when waiting for:

* 'significant others' to get ready
* 'significant others' to crawl round the supermarket
* Customers to come to reception and collect me.
* Business partners to turn up on-time.

Also got all my best recipes in it now.

..oh yeah, I believe it can be used for 'work' as well

ThinkDB and MyCheckbook. One is freeware, one is worth the $$

MegaWiki is cool too, it allows you to link between your Palm apps, so an appointment can be linked to a listing in your address book, or a memo can be linked to an appointment, etc., etc. Takes a bit to get the hang of it, but very flexible. Freeware too. :)
