    I prefer Palm. Been using them for a long time now. No blue screen. No hanging. Best of all is that software is all over the place.

    Using Windows PDA for years , so far, so good. Actually, it doesn't hang if I run it properly.

    6 years with the Palm OS. Too reliant on Ultrasoft Money now I can't move to PPC even if I want to. Seriously, still prefers the simplicity of the Palm OS. Don't see a reason to upgrade my 3 year old Clie NR70V.

    But still find that a $1.35 notebook and a pilot gel pen from Popular beats them hands down.

    Palm got plenty of software support.
    It's just unfortunate that the recent offerings by Palm isn't too enticing. Too expensive.

    I like Palm..looks simpler for a dumb-witted person like me. I think it's easier to learn than CE.

    Funny you just mentioned about the cheap notepad. When I go photoshooting on film I bring my small kokuyo book with a small pencil... negligible weight and you can just throw it around... no problem with glare in the hot sun either.

    I used to have a problem of 1 hand holding my fone, 1 hand holding the PDA, then another hand holding the stylus.

    Then i found out that I only got 2 hands.. that made it a lot worse. so i went on a mission to find the thinest PDA available, so when i put on a surface, I can write better. I found it in Popular for $1.35 (with GST incl.)

    Hey guys,

    need recommendation for Palm. what are the latest models available and where to get cheapest?
    any significant differences between Zire & Tunsten series?

    I'm currently doing software development for Palm, so I'll need to get one to test out although I've got the emulator & simulator.


    Don.
