...it becomes nothing more than a glorified diary
That's exactly what I'll use it for mate. I have a laptop and a newish Nokia phone, but the diary and to-do in the mobile aren't good enough to use every day. I want something that will remember lists b'days and the like, possibly store (but not retrieve?) emails and act as a dynamically editable to do list. I can also use one of these things to quickly input ideas and generate daily timetables for meself.Oh, and it's my birthday soon, so my parents are gonna buy it! I think they look lovely, but are they worthwhile? More ideas?
Pocket PC devices look pretty good, and the spec is way higher than PDAs, but I have a laptop and desktop machines, and I can't justify the (much) higher price.
I have a Palm jobbie but I wouldn't recommend it because it only works on batteries, and these seem to drain whether the machine is on or off. A few weeks and they're dead, and everything on the Palm is lost. Consequently, I don't trust it so don't use it, other than to sit in bed and read books downloaded off the internet..
Ive got a Clie wifes got a plam, the Clie is far better and easier to use.
It was interesting to note that the Sonys all use Palm OS, but seem ergonomically much better than the Palm machines - I bet they regret that software license! I've always been impressed by sony stuff I've had in the past (laptops and MD players / recorders) and so I may be tempted into clie-land.Point taken about getting the one that I like using the most, cos you're right - I won't use it if it's a drag.
