Still useful, though out of date technology...

  • Summary: The Palm Zire 3.1 is still useful, if you don't have a modern cell phone which probably includes all of its functions. We use ours to store appointments in and run solitaire and mahjong games. Finding new programs is all but impossible.

Zire 31

  • Summary: replacing a dead Zire 31, wish it were Vista compatible, HotSync does not work with Visa so you have to transfer everything via a SD card. Palm has no software updates for this unit that works with Vista.

Not Very Impressed

  • Summary: I bought the Zire31 as a geocacher who wishes to participate in paperless caching. The Zire31 was purchased in order to allow me to download Caching Information, using Cachemate. I have had a terrible time configuring the Palm to Cachemate.

One year and a bit update

knlfuji, PriceGrabber
14 October 2004
  • Summary: I started out with a second hand Palm III, bought a new Palm IIIxe and then upgraded to a Palm IIIc before purchasing the Zire 31. I really liked the Palm IIIc and would have stuck with it if it wasn't for my wife's need for using less batteries and constantly losing data on her hand-me-down IIIxe.
  • Pros: Upgraded Palm OS and applications, Very nice color screen, Expandable Memory, Compact enough, Reasonably priced
  • Cons: Awful and useless rubber flip cover, Cheesy rubber cover for usb and power plug, No battery charging indicator, White plastic case back looks juvenile and cheap. DEAD after a one year of service.

  • Excerpt: I have had this little PDA for just over three years now, and I'm very pleased with it. I got it for about £50 in the clearout section of PC world when I was looking for a replacement for my old Sharp organiser. One of the main plus points is that it is very easy to use.
  • Pros: Very easy to use, doesn't crash, lots of free software available
  • Cons: Screen not as good as more expensive models, has built in battery

  • Excerpt: I got this as a portable mpeg player and mp3 player. I have changed the card to a 512mb card. The battery life is excellent. I love it. It does everything I need, so much so I hardly ever use my pc! It can run the divx codec using the appropriate software.
  • Pros: light weight
  • Cons: crashes often

PalmOne Zire 31 - Great Item or Just A Palm Off?!

rob_dabos..., Ciao
26 August 2005
  • Excerpt: This PDA I found to be good in many ways, but also to have some disadvantages. Advantages: Good Price - This PDA retails for around the £120 mark and it can even be purchased for cheaper with some retailers - £120 for a PDA is great value, considering that most of them retail for above £200.
  • Pros: Good Price, Ease of Use, Good Features, Portable (Lightweight), Good Battery Life
  • Cons: Poor Durability, Low Memory Capacity, Manual Needs Improvement
