  • I need a new PDA - any suggestions

    I was using my Palm - Zire Z72 as an MP3 player and left it in the gym.
    No onw has turned it in at lost and found so I assume it's now being used by some one else. I changed any sensitive info I could think of that might be on it. I hope who ever has it just somehow reset the system and reinstalled a fresh Palm OS set up. It was password protected - I hope that wasn't easy to get around.
    Now I need a new one - liked the Z72 - but is there a better alternative in the $200 range? Don't need a phone - just contacts, memos, mp3, etc.

    Thanks

    I am using a BlackBerry 8310. It has GPS which I don't really use because I have a GPS unit in the van.

    The only change I would make given today's available choices and technology would be to go with the 8320 Wi-Fi BlackBerry.

    Overview
    Featuring a metallic finish, clean lines and soft edges, the BlackBerry® Curve™ 8320 smartphone is the smallest and lightest BlackBerry® smartphone ever to come with a full QWERTY keyboard.
    It’s packed with incredible features*, including a camera, media player, Wi-Fi capabilities, expandable memory, Voice Dialing, BlackBerry® Maps and trackball navigation. Plus, you get all the core functionality you’ve come to expect in a BlackBerry smartphone—email and text messaging, instant messaging, web browser and advanced phone functionality.
    The BlackBerry Curve—it’s your connection to everything that matters.

    , I left mine on the counter of a Starbucks last October and I learned my lesson and now password protect mine. So another $300 and I had a new one the next day and just downloaded everything lost from my computer.

    I could not upload my loss of personal pride ... I learned once again that stupidity can not be replaced or downloaded with a USB connection.

      Yup - I agree about the stupidity part!
      I was thinking maybe I might find it out on eBAy
      I'm pissed too - assuming that's where I did leave it - sitting on a Nustep machine - wouldn't you turn something like that in to the front desk if you found it?

      Thanks for feedback.

        I have a Palm TX that I love. Works great for photos, calendar, memos, contacts, and Wi-Fi internet, but I don't even know if it can handle MP3s since I use my iPod for anything like that.

          What about an IPod Touch?

            I have a Palm TX. It combines all of the features that are important to me i.e wifi, MP3, email, word, excel, powerpoint. There is also a great variety of software applications for Palm products.The only drawback is that is limited to a 2gb sd card. Also Palm is not great at providing updates to it's software.

              Thanks everyone.
              I just picked up a Tungsten E2 - wanted the TX but my inner cheapskate won out, It's got what I need - contacts, calendar and MP3 player.
              Maybe when I'm rich I'll upgrade.
