    There are plenty of good WiFi PDAs within your budget. But for PDA phones, to get within your budget, you'll need to have a contract. Most PDA phones without contract would be out of your budget.

    HP makes good PDAs. Checkout their website:

    Also a good place where there are plenty of discussion on PDAs is:

    HP 6828 is a good phone. Can't say if $500 for used set is worth it or not, because it really depends on the condition. Check out the ppcsg site in my previous post. There are many users there who have the 6828 and can share their experiences.

    Unless you want to wait till Oct 07. New version of windows mobile is coming and graphics processor for PDA is slated to be available.

    BTW, if you are tinking of surfing web... forget about PDA phones... screen too small.

    Unfortunately, Dell no longer sell this PDA (if you chec their flyer in Today or during IT shows lately, you notice it is not mentioned). However, there are some unconfirm news that they are coming with a new one.

    If you get asecond hand set, make sure the seller transfers the warranty to you. It is done online.

    Actually can also consider the iPAQ 4700 series if yu can find it although it is EOL. You can get extented warranty from HP and there i WM5 upgrade for it. It also has dual slots like Dell pda. As the matter of fact, I still feel that WM2003SE is still the best.

    For the new OS, you have to wait a while because somtimes the third party software providers may be slow to upgrade their software. This is specially the case for freewares.

    BTW, not all PDA phones are small, at least not for Dopod 900.

    Not sure now. Last time bought for friend at $600 plus. Just remember Acer n311 also has a good screen too (3.7" high-brightness transflective TFT LCD (65,536 colors) with 480 x 640 (VGA) resolution).

    I won't recommend. Screen is 240x240 and some software cannnot be used. Need additional third party software to do some of the works. Also, I find the external wifi card tends to be slower.

    Problem with Axim is their accessories (especially sync cable and cases) can be a bit difficult to find. If you are ok then it proceed with it. You might also want to go to Suntec Dell's booth to have a look.

    Yep..tats a fair price, but think it went lower before...something like $589 or thereabouts. I bought mine around that price. Its a good pda (with wi-fi and vga res screen) if ur not looking for a pda phone.

    Be sure to check out some of the dell forums online on how to work out some of the bugs, there's some issue with active sync on winmobile5. But once u get it sorted out, its relatively bug-free.
