Excerpt: I was in the market for a PDA to replace my old-fashioned appointment book. My boss had a 270 new in the box that had been sitting in his office for nearly a year. I asked if I could use it on a trial basis. That was nearly 3 years ago. When I got the 270 I fully intended to make it my cell phone as well. The only problem was that I discovered our area (Madison WI) didn't have a service that supported the 270.
Excerpt: I've used this phone for over 1.5 years. Pros: -pda -nice screen -decent sound quality/speakerphone -qwerty keypad Cons: -Poor battery life. I get 10 minutes talk time on a full charge. -the lid and the screen backlight breaks -reception -size it too big I would not get this phone again in the future. First, the fact that you cannot replace the battery is a poor design hy handspring. I know 3 other guys with the same phone with the same problems I'v experienced.
