Conclusion: The Palm LifeDrive is a good first stab at the PDA-Media Manager hybrid concept, and the overall design shows great promise. For Palm enthusiasts, this device is a great option, but it won’t be winning back any Windows Mobile converts. The sluggish hard drive and poor battery life need to be addressed in future revisions, and an operating system upgrade is essential for Palm to remain competitive.
Pros: Easy navigation; integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth; lots of storage space
Cons: Slow hard drive performance; dim screen; old operating system
