Summary: The wonder of what engineers can fit into a small package! The Zire 31 already has a great selection of programs: memo, Real Player, notes, calendar, etc., but there is a TON of third-party software available as well: Adobe Reader for Palm, editors (and doc readers) like CardTXT, pedit, etc.
Summary: The PalmOne Zire 31 is great for the person who doesn't want a large planner to carry around. I use mine everyday both as a student and for work so it serves it's purpose. The software is a bit outdated and the memory space is small compared to the newer technology but if you're only using it for...
Summary: This is a great product. I upgraded from the Zire 21 for two reasons: I wanted a backlit screen and I wanted more memory. The 31 has the backlit color screen, which makes it easier to see and gives more options in customizing screen setups in my programs. I also displays photos very well.
Summary: The Zire 31 is great for the price (about $70) from an amazon seller. This is my second one. The first lasted about 3 1/2 years before screen fade set in. Unfortunately, palm doesn't make this anymore. It has card expansion slot which the Zire 22 doesn't have.
Summary: I received my Palm Pilot sooner than promised, in brand new condition. It came with the manual and Install CD, and the seller also included a paper with more helpful hints in addition to those. I charged it, set it up, then transfered my info from my Palm desktop. It was so easy and quick!
Excerpt: I was looking for a pda that would fit my budget. The Palm Zire 31 fit the bill. I loved the functionality of it and it was extremely easy to use. Nothing complicated. I use it for photo storage, organizing and listening to my tunes. I can’t go anywhere …
Summary: I have just bought the version bundled with a GPS and ViaMichelin route mapping software. The software comes on a 128Mb SD card and uses it all up with a complete UK and Ireland street map. It also includes Points-Of-Interest, like petrol stations, car parks, museums, restaurants etc.
Pros: Fast startup time, 'bullet-proof' Palm OS, Excellent as a routefinder for the car.
Cons: With the routemapping software installed 16Mb internal memory is cutting it fine.
Summary: I had this pda for 6 months. It was my first one and I loved it. It worked great. Then one day, it just died. PalmOne had terrible customer service. It would cost more to fix it than it cost me to buy it. I was told to consider upgrading.
Summary: This is my first Palm Pilot, before I was using LCD screen organizers because Palm was so expensive. I really bought the Palm for gaming, the best game Ive found (Internet Demo) was MicroQuad. Its like a Mario Kart racing game.
Pros: Nice color screen,MP3 music, Games
Cons: Low Resolution 160x160, Battery Life, 90 day warranty, Doesn't support OS5 games
Summary: This pda is great. Of course the mp3 music or videos will drain the batteries. Everything will drain the batteries. i love it. it is the best ever, i love it tons. I have had this pda the longest ever. I have alot of memory left, cause i am using the SD card for Music and Applications.
Pros: Everything except the weaknesses listed under Weaknesses.
Cons: Cannot see in sunny light-outside-daytime, and alarm could be louder-much.
