Very good value for on the move personal data storage
18 July 2011
Summary: Although this is an outdated model, it is still remarkable for its' data storage. The one thing that keeps raising its head in other feedbacks of this model is that it does not have rechargable batteries and that when you replace the AAA batteries, you lose all your data. However the sinc between the Palm 105 and the Pc allows you quickly restore all the data to the Palm 105 from your PC in just a few seconds. Its good for me.
Summary: I bought this because a few years ago my old one died. I had checked into newer ones and they didn't seem to last either. So why spend the money? I got this one it works perfectly, is less expensive. the only thing missing was the software that would link it to my computer, BUT, that is minimal. I can use it freestanding without any problems. I am again on time and have no trouble scheduling appointments.
Summary: A big part of my job requires me to gather information such as numbers dealing with products, plus test results. I have been using notepads, scribbling notes and figures, flipping pages, which would result in hunting through them compiling into reports. I did not need a lot of memory to accomplish my task, something simple, no frills, would do nicely. I only needed something to record my data long enough to compile into reports.
Summary: Just received yesterday and it's working out great. I bought it to replace a much older Palm that I've had for about 10 years, but was damaged. Given that statement, I compare this review with my experience with that Palm. I like that fact that it's small and comes with a face-plate. I also like the feature that allows you to see the time and date through the opening of the face-plate (maybe unnecessary, but I like it).
Summary: I love the fact that it is a touch screen! I bought it for my mom as a Christmas gift. Her old PDA recently went kaput on her & she has needed a new one. I figured that this one would be great for her & it is not sold here so I dont have to worry about her finding it in any store!
Summary: I really feel organized with my new Palm M105. Before I purchased this item, I was writing everything down on my professional calendar, and would still lose track of things. Now, I can go straight to the electronic calendar and see what I have planned for the day and keep private appointments private. It's user friendly and doesn't take anymore time to use than a standard calendar. I am glad that I purchased this item.
Summary: It's a good PDA. It's not color it only has 8 megs of ram. I was surprised though how much I could fit on it. The 2mb one would not have been enough at all. I bought it just so I could read ebooks. I can have about 8 ebooks on at one time. It can run most of the programs for palm. It can't run "documents to go" though. That was kind of disappointing. So I can't take a word file with me. It has to be in text.
Summary: An easy to use manager for schedules and to do lists. Holds many many contacts with address, phone numbers and e-mail. Its easy to synronize with computer via cradle and serial connection. It has two problems - It uses standard AAA batteries with no external recharging capability. If (WHEN)your batteries go dead - YOUR DATA GOES BYE BYE. Easy to restore if you have kept your files on the computer up to date. The other problem is that it hogs the serial port.
Excerpt: "...I have also owned a Palm 3, and this didn't do it. It is a really nice palm, and I like how you can change the covers. Now for the downside. The screen is tiny. It is perfectly clear and legible, but too small. Unlike many Palms, there is no reset button on the stylus, so a pin is required. And the problem with the battery. ...
Pros: Small, stylish, large memory, changeable covers
