Summary: This is the first PDA I have used. Although I wasn't sure how useful it would be, it has become almost indispensible. I use it as a calendar, to store phone numbers and names, as a traveling alarm clock, as a pocket watch, to securely store many passwords and account names, and to show photographs.
Pros: difficult to use in bright sunlight, difficult to enter information directly into the palm
Cons: difficult to use in bright sunlight, difficult to enter information directly into the palm
Summary: The M130 is a great tool and I do not see the need for anything more expensive. Granted the color could use some improvememts, but I didnt buy it to look at pictures. Battery life needs improvement.
Pros: doesnt pick up the letter O very well using grafitti
Cons: doesnt pick up the letter O very well using grafitti
Excerpt: This curvy little entry-level palm easily sits in a pocket and does the usual basic Palm PDA functions of managing contacts and appointments. It's all plastic including the screen which means it's light.
Excerpt: My first introduction to PDAs started with the Palm m100. My friend got it back when I was in school and everyone was drooling all over it – it was such a novelty. I set my sights on getting one as soon as I could.
Excerpt: It got to the point during the summer where i hadn't really spent ny of my summers earnings and they were now burning an enormous hole in my pocket! In all honesty i bought this to try to organise my life. In truth, i should have just bought a diary.
Pros: Great little thing to mess around with
Cons: Haven't used it all that much in 2 years ! ! !
Excerpt: Forget Lifeboat, Liferaft or even the mint with the hole in the middle, this device is truly a lifesaver. I used to have a Sharp electronic organiser - one of those you can pick up anywhere for about £20-£30.
Pros: Light, simple to use, Colour Screen and computer back up facility

I easily connected it to the pc and downloaded new free software whenever i got bored of the standard stuff! Its lightweight and Normal electronic shops sell gadgets and upgrades for this model!
Excerpt: My first PDA was a Palm M105, which I got from my wife as a Xmas present. I didn't think I was going to use it very much, but I was about to be surprised. I started having a look around the net for programs and you wouldn't believe how much free stuff there is out there for PDAs.
Excerpt: Lightweight, affordable and genuinly useful. A great entry level PDA for a low price. replace your phone book, address book, diary with one light weight device (weighs about the same as a mobile phone) Battery ife is good with charging easy using the included cradle.
Excerpt: I have been using the palm for over a year; when I first got it I couldn't be bothered to learn to use it properly and would still use a written diary. Now I would be lost without it. I have my work diary on there and my personal diary.
Pros: easy to use, extra programmes can be downloaded,
Cons: if it runs out of batery you risk losing all data if it is not backed up to computor
