Palm strikes back

In my neverending saga of "Will I buy a PDA or not?", Palm has thrown a new wrench into the works: the m100. It’s little, for sure, but it’s got a lot of what I want in a PDA. Then there are those darned nice Pocket PCs, which have great features but cost a whole lot more than $150.

Is it just me, or are all of these little portable gadgets going to merge really soon? -pm

Id buy an older CE device, that has a PC Card slot, there around $70-$150 on eBay, with 2mb to 8mb of mem. The Pc card makes it ultra easy to add stuff like modems, considering you dont need any drivers.

The world is going the way of the palm. Look at all the devices that are now using (or will be using) the palm OS. an example of this is the new cell phone that uses the palm OS

Dave, thanks for bringing this Ping back up top. :)

Qualcomm has had a Palm phone for a while now - but I have never seen one in person.

I wanted to mention that I checked out the m100 and, aside from the 2MB of memory, I liked it. Nice, small, and the color sleeves are a good touch. I'd still go with a Visor Deluxe in the Palm OS arena, though.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
