RE: Looking for a Wi-Fi PDA

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I recently purchased an iPAQ 1945 with Pocket PC.  I just wanted something small and simple to use for contacts, appointments and notes.  It works great with syncing with Outlook.  I previously had an old Casio that used third party software to sync with Outlook and even though it worked it was not even close to the Pocket PC.  It also has the Bluetooth capability for linking to e-mail but I probably won't use it for that.  I have used Pocket Streets with it also and it works great.  I know this is not the type of unit you are looking for but the Pocket PC synchronization with Outlook is very good.

Subject: Looking for a Wi-Fi PDA

I would like to hear from some of you who are using one of the newer palm or pocket PC devices that are Wi-Fi enabled. I am seeking one and have been considering the new Palm T3 or the Dell Axium(?) or the Toshiba new Wi-Fi?  I think that the new Palm is Microsoft compatible to accept the contact list and phone directories of Microsoft Office, but I am not sure. I like the idea that the T3 allows for a wider side view in case I want to load a spreadsheets. However, the Dell is a workhorse and I have always been partial to Dell as it is my main laptop (Inspiron 8500).


All computers in my home are Wi-Fi connected to my DSL service and each of three computers so I can share files. It is important to me to be able to leave my office (including my laptop) and have my PDA next to me so I can jot down notes, check appointments and do some surfing without lugging the laptop into the bedroom and getting my wife ticked off. Furthermore, I enjoy reading novels on my PDA as there are a lot of choices on the Project Gutenberg Library.


Your comments and opinions will help a great deal.
