Looking To Buy A Pda - page 5

I've posted this on the infomatics board but am looking for more feedback. I've been offered a beta test of medical reference for PDAs by a major publisher. I'd love to work with them on it, but I... Read More

    I have Davis's drug guide, Epocrates, and Taber's, among others. The only one I use regularly at work is the Davis's. It beats carting a book around. I use Skyscape for the applications: http://www.skyscape.com/estore/store.aspx
    There are some good programs I wish I had had in school that have to do with the nursing process, care plans, nursing diagnoses, ect.

    Here's a different link at another site. I guess my other link isn't working.

    Is it best to go with a Palm or are there better hand helds I should look at? tia

    Still not working! I am curious too-I want a PDA, but don't really know if I can justify the expense.

    Yes, it's not showing up still. Ugh! Can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. It was supposed to picture the Palm Tungsten-E.

    I am having a hard time trying to choose a pda and wonder if the brand Palm is the best to start looking at. I've read another thread I found on palms but it only reviewed two types.

    Any experiences with handhelds are much appreciated. tia

    I have the Tungsten T3 and love it. However, depending on what your needs/budgets are another model/brand would work just fine for you.

    What I did was go straight to the palm site and compare what they offered. Then go to Sony and compare theirs. You should get a very good picture of what is out there v. what your needs are. I had a lot of hits at google.com

    I went w/the Palm v. the "computer" because I saw more software (that met my needs) that was compatable with said system.

    Hope that helps!

    Whew! I was worried there for a minute. I opened this thread thinking I was going to see something about the growth of hair on the palm or some other "hand question"!!!

    I have a Palm m505 with 8mb memory. I could put in more, but have never needed it. I love the palm, and use it mostly for my drug lists. It would kill me to do without it.

    I have a Sony Clie with Epocrates and an ABG program on it, very helpful, but I think I'm the only one on my unit who uses one (besides the residents).
