Summary: The palm3e serves to take care of my business contact info without having to buy some too fancy phone. I live where a cell phone is a marginal connectivity proposition so there is no use in spending hundreds of dollars for something that does more than I will ever use. Besides I try not to rely too much on technology it can be a crutch as much as a tool. I chose this product and a sharp wizard to be an upgrade from a casio boss.
Summary: What Can I say, if you are looking for something that can be used for a long time than this one is for you! Keeping phone numbers, todo list, calender, etc. This one has it. You do not need a fancy PDA to do that stuff. PROs: You can use this thing daily without replacing batteries for a month large screen Grayscale Cons: I realize that is easy to scratch on the graffi part.. =( The backlight drains a lot of power. Other than that 2mb is enough for daily usage..
Summary: Nothing fancy, second one I have had, very easy to use. I use it to keep important info at hand that come up occasionally Nice calendar, and the address book is useful for keeping important info at hand like birthdays, anniversaries, kids names and DOBs and other important info so the mind doesn't get so cluttered.
Excerpt: How many different types of PDA's are there out there - yes lots! Well what do you want to buy one for - as a trendy diary, show-off item,mp3 player,pocket calculator.....the list goes on and on and on. Oh, and how much money do you have spare? I basically wanted an electronic diary - something that I didn't have to replace - that I could plan into next year without having to wait for the next years to be printed, something that was quick to use.
Excerpt: Once again, Apple has set the trend - this time with its see-through plastic computers - and suddenly everyone wants to do the same. If you've got an iMac, a G3 Pro or even a shiny new G4 then this is the PDA that'll look best on your desktop. Pity its HotSync cradle is still black, though. It's designed to look good with the new Macs but it works uncommonly well with PCs, too (actually, the Mac Pack connection kit is a £15 option).
Cons: "doesn't have mac connectivity straight out from the box"
Excerpt: "When I bought my palm 3e, I didn't expect to get much out of the 2 Megabytes. It turns out that it is ample; I have about 15 extra apps installed with plenty of free memory. The date book, memo pad, todo list & phone directory come in more useful than you'd think. It is also very tough (I've dopped it three times!) and just the right size to go in a pocket. Since purchasing my Palm, my life has changed. I used to be disorganised and not know whether ...
Excerpt: Before purchasing the Palm 111e and reading a number of online reviews I noticed the main discussion was regarding the (allegedly) measly 2mb of memory. What are people talking about? Of course, it depends on how many extra programs/e-books/etc you're going to load onto it, but for your general address/diary/e-mail functions 2mb is easily enough. I've had my Palm for about 7 months now and are still using less than 20% of the memory.
Excerpt: I brought my palm as a universal remote control and it has been the best thing i have brought for a long time. I downloaded omniremote and it is so configable from your pc, You can create screen the way that you want them, button where you want them. On top of this i also use it as a phone and address book. The palm has a 2meg memory and i find that ample. Also comes with a cradle which links to your serial port allowing you to hot sync to your pc.
