Scott, there have been many, many threads about PDA's/Palm pilots posted in the forums in recent months. Suggest you try doing a search on the topic, and post in one of those threads if you still have questions.
I use my Palm every day, though our company does not support their use. I have my schedule on it, all my important phone numbers and client info, and my drug book (epocrates) I even have a spreadsheet for recording my mileage!
I really wish our company would go hi-tech. It's a PITA being told they have a new referral for me, and then having to try to access a fax machine while on the road. Sometimes I have to drive home. Sometimes I have to drive to the office. If I'm REALLY lucky, the client will have their own fax, and I can get the info without a hassle. However, confidentiality is always a concern, because we use Winfax, therefore I don't know exactly what documents are being sent to me until they actually come off the fax machine. It's even more of a concern if the client uses their computer to receive faxes, as I do.
