    Default Anyone using PPC here?

    Im currently looking at Acer N311 PPC when I saw it at Sitex. Costs: $499. Free 1gb card, leather casing and screen protector.

    Is it worth to buy for that PPC? Hmm.. Dont intend to get a PDA as I fear that if it lies at the hospital, I wun have anything to use at all.

    Dell is good. Cos got dedicated video processor and most importantly can accept CF cards. Big screen also good for viewing pictures...... and videos. Good for long trips. After sales also good if you take the higher warranty package, cos they will come to your place to collect your spoilt device and send it back to your doorstep.

    I'm considering selling my X50V if u wana buy. He he. Still got nearly at least 1.5 years warranty with extra batt.

    Agree with you Josho.

    I have 2 ex PDA , both lies in hospital and never come out due to replacement cost. But then again, it applies to alot of electronic gadget.

    Hx4700 still has one of the bigger screens for PDS on the market for a model that's about 2 years old. I'm using it for the past year, and have been very happy about it.

    I am using the N311. Bought it when they first launched @$535 with 512mb sd card. It stays in my shirt pocket when I listen to mp3. Light and small with 3.7" screen. Bluetooth and wifi when I need to retrieve email. Can connect to compact drive, ext hdd or card reader too. However, the SD transfer is pretty slow...... It's not SDHC compatible. I am using the 4gb 150X SD card.

    PPC is the OS running on the PDA.. in short you can say PPC is also a PDA. So what do you mean by land in hospital?

    GPS has been for a while already not necessary must get a PDA... a Smartphone will do just fine. I had GPS on my O2 Smartphone and loaded with GPS Singapore map and also it runs several .avi movies like Shawshank Redemption, Bourne Identity and Bourne Supremacy on the Smartphone.

    I have used the HP Hx4700 2 years back, I think it is good if you have very good eyesight to fully use the VGA screen. Now I am currently using iPAQ rx3715 PDA, loaded with the GPS Singapore map and many more .avi movies only difference between a Smartphone and a PDA is the physical size, plus the PDA can load more external memory than a Smartphone device.

    Smartphone does not have a Wifi capable one yet, well at least I haven't found one yet. With this free Wireless@sg being rolled out I agree that PDA will once again be a hot item.

    Yup you are right, thanks John... you should know the latest, no one here or even in PPCSG knows more about PDA than you.

    Long time no see... Been a while since I log on to PPCSG.

    My 2 cents... if want to take advantage of Wireless@sg free service, the mobile Phone screen too small liow, PDA screen still better suited.
