Summary: A great palm device, but get one that isn't password protected. I lost two that would not reboot after a hard reboot. Don't expect an ipod, it won't connect to all wifi sites, and don't expect to synch to a windows 7 or 8 machine, XP only. Palm Inc.

Excerpt: Although a little outdated now, especially with the release of the iPhone etc. The Palm LiveDrive offers a sensible solution for keeping your live in order with a few little tricks to keep you entertained as well.
Excerpt: Lifedrive. On a recent business trip I purchased a Palm Lifedrive at a cost of just under $400 (about £225). For your money you get a soft leather case, Charger unit and the PC data cable, along with a software CD.
Excerpt: Great leap forward from Palm. This has solved all the memory capacity problems I had with my old Palm Tungsten T. I now have everything I want in one place, no need for memory cards, although these can be used if you wish. Bulkier than my old Palm but just as easy to carry around.

Summary: Acheté en 2006 déjà, je porte mon Palm Lifedrive toujours avec moi. En 2009, la question qui se pose éventuellement pour le lecteur est si cela vaut le coup d'acheter un Palm LifeDrive en occasion. A mon avis: non, sauf si vous tenez à avoir un Palm avec la fonctionalité WiFi.
