Conclusion: I thus give the Palm Z22 a solid 3.5/5 stars (keeping its target audience in mind) – the $99 price point and overall design is very attractive. I deducted half a point because the used equipment market (aka ebay) has recently seen drooping prices for machines like the Palm Treo 600 or the Tungsten T/E models – if you can miss out on the warranty, these older devices may also be worth a look!
Summary: Palm Z22 has much more changes against the Zire 21 than the Zire 21 against the original Zire. Let’s list these changes:
The concept of the PDA remains the same – this is the simple model without expansion slots, wireless adapters, normal big LCD. The model is good to read books, keep contacts and handwritten notes, use the calculator and play simple logical games. It fits the name “electronic organizer”, as it is too simple to be a PDA.

Summary: Palm's Z22 is a cute, lightweight and inexpensive PDA, or personal digital assistant. Like a super-slim packet of fags, it will slip into your pocket - if there's any space left there. After all, at a mere £80 the Palm is hardly going to drain your trousers of cash.
Summary: Stylish, small and simple to use - there's nothing wrong with the Z22. And there's plenty to like about that price, too. If you want a PDA, you'll struggle to match these levels of quality and value.

Conclusion: В итоге к несомненным плюсам Palm Z22 можно отнести небольшие габариты, прочный корпус, интерфейс mini-USB и, конечно, низкую цену, позволяющую даже небогатым покупателям познакомиться с возможностями операционной системы Palm OS последнего поколения. Минусы - это, прежде всего, низкая производительность, минимальные возможности расширения и коммуникации и посредственный дисплей, аналогов которого уже не встретишь на современных наладонниках других производителей.
