I just got accepted to SFSU for Fall 2010 and I am reading all these threads on what I need to buy for school. Almost everyone points out a PDA/Iphone is needed. Anyone using an Ipad or plan to? Reanna... Read More

    Ooh, just found out we can record but not use laptops. I guess that's a good start. But no knitting. Boo. I remember so much more if I can work with my hands.
    Get a stress ball to squeeze or chew gum if it's allowed, it helps if you are someone that needs to move to absorb things.

    I haven't heard of the Nexus one?? I got the slide our keyboard and touch android with Verizon when it first came out. I had a BB storm prior.

    I tape record my lectures on a recorder that plugs into my laptop and uploads everything to Itunes.
    It's the Google phone, but if the HTC Incredible comes out first, I'm getting that. No keyboard, but you can use Swype (check THAT out, it's awesome).

    I have a recorder for my old ipod, so I'll use that. Bummer about the computer, but one less thing I have to tote around I guess.

    If you want a PDA over a phone....you're really looking at a Windows Mobile device like an HP, or an iTouch, or a Palm. I have a Palm and love it, but honestly, of the three....I'd likely go with the newer OS (the iTouch) just because there's a likelihood that you'll be able to use it for a longer period of time.

    So figure out which "nursing bundle" you're looking for software wise (I love Skyscape Constellation) and find out what the memory requirement is....then buy an iTouch that has enough memory & put it on there :-)

    Peace,

    Thank you for this! I will definitely look into this and see if perhaps i'll finally be able to decide which PDA to get.

    Mines a google one to, they have the droid and the HTC one, I went with the droid one instead of the HTC but I really like it.

    Yep, the HTC is the Eris, which I've heard is being retired in May. But that's all rumor so who knows. But I'm looking forward to a new phone since mine just shuts off randomly now. Hard to carry on a convo.

    Im still not sold on Swype yet but I havent had much hands on time with it yet. I do like the move to Android OS but I am not quite a fan of touch only after my last phone. I was worried Android wasnt going to be welcomed as well as it was because it really is a great OS and not having to rely on RIM/WinMo and their horrible UI is great.

    On a side note, I wonder how Motorola feels that the HTC incredible is now the HTC Droid Incredible.

    Go for the Iphone and don't bother with a Kindle or a Nook. I was considering buying a Kindle but the day the Ipad was released, Amazon came out with a free app for the Iphone which works exactly like the Kindle. So you can read and buy books right on your Iphone thus saving 299.00 or 399.00 depending on which one your buy. B&N came out with an app to that replicates the Nook on your Iphone. Just love these things.

    Isn't the iPhone a bit small to read a book on though?

    Not at all! I wouldn't have believed it either. The books also don't take up much memory at all either. Try the app; it's free and there are a thousands of books that are free on Amazon. Then you'll know if it would work for you.
