PALM! PALM!! PALM!!!
I had a Palm Tungsten E (now E2) that is not very high tech but will give good value for the money. I tossed it and got a kick a** DELL Axim X50. Spent close to $400 on it. Dell is windows based. My reasons were:
1: More memory on windows based PDAs
2: Wi Fi
3: the Axim was very attractive
From the 1st day I used it I HATED it. You have to go through so many menus to get to where you are going, and the calender function is very frustrating especially if you are used to the Palm calender feature. With Palm, you can color code your To do's by categories so when you look at your weekly view you automatically know how many mettings you have (say you coded meetings in yellow) exams (say red), classes (pruple), work (blue) etc without clicking on each one to know what it it. It is a very attractive feature. With windows everything is one color (blue) so you have to click on each agenda to see exactly what you scheduled..FRUSTRATING!
Bottom line is that I missed the simplicity and elegance of PALM. The new Palm TX has Wi fi, and 250Mb of memory which is more than you need for software (last time I checked they were also offering a free expansion card). Also I don't know of may softwares that are available in PC but not Palm but there are tons that are only available with PALM OS. I gave away my $400 PDA and fished out my raggedy old PALM. i will upgrade to the Palm TX as soon as i feel like i've made up to my Tungsten the wrong I did to it
P.S: the Tungsten E2 retails for about $199. the TX is $299
