"This is the best of the best!!! (as of 7/1/2005)"4.5 starson by steve25sds
Pros: Excellent display, excellent speed, plenty of memory,
Cons: (ouch!) expensive, touch pad takes some getting used too, as with all PDAs BATTERY LIFE!
Summary: This is what all PDAs dream of being one day. I've had more than 6 different PDAs in the past and they were mostly for keeping schedules and some note taking, ect.
This one is basically a mini computer and it pretty much does everything a mid ranged laptop would do and its just as fast. To say this is a treat to own is like saying ice cream is good on a hot day. Yea, it's true but you really don't get how true it is.
The wireless and bluetooth are both easy to use and set up (and it's a good thing because the manual basically thanks you for your purchase and tells you how to turn it on and off and that's all).
If you hear something when you turn the wireless its the giant sucking sound that wireless is using to drain your battery.
The display is beautiful. It's by far the best display I've seen on one of these little things.
I have downloaded a few photos and watched a movie and it's just as good as any tv or monitor (not including Plasma, HDTV, ect) but its good.
Because of the super sized processor this thing moves faster than a taxi in a bad neighborhood. It just flies threw programs.
Depends on what you want to do but after having these PDAs for years the programs are getting better but you really have to look hard to find the good ones.
So at $500+ a pop this isn't really an impulse buy (unless your last name happens to be Trump) so you will really have to jusify why you need one of these more than your wife needs to pay her car note, or why you need it more than the kids need braces, or why you need it more than well you get the point.
But if you happen to do well on poker night and you have a few hundreds just burning a hole in your pocket waiting to just jump out and make a purchase then you could not do any better than one of these. It is absolutely worth every penny!
MY ONLY WISH
My only wish is that they had a really good camera on this unit but I guess they had to hold something back for next year.
That's my summary and I'm sticking to it!
