What do you use for a PDA?

I am looking for a Windows mobile 6.x device so I can run a special app that
used to run on Palm, but now only on Windows Mobile.

I began my search for Windows Mobile cell phones, but most seem to have too
many bad user reviews for my comfort.

So, I think Im getting a 'regular' cell. so, Im on the hunt for a PDA.

Any suggestions?

By the way, I dont intend on using internet data with this device. Just a
scheduling, Word, and my needed app.

Thanks

~$600 without a contract. With a contract I can get it to you for ~$180
a month. That's a two year contract and we reserve the right to break
you kneecaps if you try to get out of paying. 😛

Re: What do you use for a PDA?

Verizon XV6900 , which is a rebranded HTC Touch. Runs WM6, the PDA part is
good, the phone part is ok. Touchscreen works well with your fingers and
includes a finger-tap keyboard. I Have to reboot it once a week lately, but
I've got a lot of crap on it too.

Re: What do you use for a PDA?

I have done the CF card to my lifedrive, well worth it IMO.

After owning a Sansa View, I really don't see the need for a Lifedrive owner
to buy an iPod/MP3 player. pTunes with WMA support does a nice job at
keeping a ton of music on an external 4GB card. You browse the web, check
your email, chat, etc. Sure, it ain't as pretty as an iPod Touch, but it
works just fine. Why replace something that works?? (this is a Novell
forum, I'm sure we can get into "Netware" as an answer to this question, but
I'm not going there. 🙂 )

I tried that driver that allows for more than 4GB on an SHDC card, but it
never got past the licensing code thing properly.

Maybe get an iPhone and have it run a vm for your app? 🙂

Email the dev, he is quite responsive.
I would check out that "nurom" as well, i heard it can do some wonders for
the lifedrive as well.
