We were thrown off Verizon's Wireless Broadband service for looking at too much video (our own).
What I am looking for is a wifi PDA to be able to quickly check site statistics, login and block some IPs if needed, login to AdSense too every once in a while when I am on the road for extended periods, and use the mobile connection to do all that when no wifi is available.
Someone here mentioned downloading the Opera Mini browser. I'll try that.
I have a couple of clients who own Treos. It seems like they might have a little more browsing capabilities.
The other thing I'd like to try, when I get the time and money, is the PDA version of go2mypc. The one down side is that you would have to leave a machine running while you are on the road. The plus is that you would be accessing adsense from your own IP .
No additional settings were required other than to get connected to the wireless router.
Browser usability has fairly serious limitations from the standpoint of limited screen size, minimal memory and processing speed but... it IS a serviceable WiFi tool for certain applications.
Actually the screen size is larger than most phones and it's certainly easier than hauling a laptop around if you just want to "poke" at the web a bit. All for about $150!
For browsing, I'm using Opera Mini browser. Some activities including:
- login & checking email in gmail
- login to adsense
- reading webmasterworld forum
And also replying to this thread. :)
Narrowed down the choices to:
- Nokia E61i
- Palm TX
The Nokia only leads with the tiny qwerty keyboard and the mobile.
The Palm TX is more attractive even though it is not mobile, but it makes it all up with the pocket fitting size, solid palm os (I already have 4 palms, now using m515c), its clickable screen (much better than having to button scroll one link at a time), it can connect via wifi or through a Bluetooth mobile, the screen is large enough for comfortable browsing, and can even switch portrait and landscape, in addition to other features like playing music and all the reliable pda stuff, it takes a lot of work to crash a palm.
BTW, Hobbs, you're absolutely right about not getting an iPhone just yet. The market will be full of similar devices. iPhone2 must have a real competition there.
