Summary: This is the third Zire 71 I have had. I keep wearing them out. Yes, it's old school, but I go with old school with reason. 1) It's PALM operating system never crashes. Even on those occasions when I have let the battery go completely dead, I have never lost a single bit of data. 2) It does not connect to the internet. Therefore, it is impervious to an kind of cyber attack. I suppose these two points really sum up into one good solid reason for old school technology.
Summary: I bought the Palm 71 because is the best to keep my personal information on hand. Today I can't find any thing similar. It was a fast transfer of files. I had on of those. It was almost like new.
Summary: Just great device,first time i bought this pda instead of a paper notebook, the battery does not holded a charge, but it was perfectly replaced with nokia 850mAh bl-5c and another with bl-6 which is 1150mAh!!. Bought another one for my father, now he plans his day just with Zire71, These small toys are able to control all household appliances via infrared channel by NR Deluxe software,i also set up Photoshop CS5 to execute commands instead of pressing hotkeys,work has...
Summary: I'll try to be simple and short. The Zire 71 is the model I've used the longest and it took me a long time before I decided to look of an upgrade (Lifedrive with CF upgrade). The pros are too many to list them all. From playing games, to taking notes, to the handy camera, to watching movies or listening to music, this decide does just about everything. Why I upgraded is more due on a whim to a fantastic price on a Lifedrive that I decided to give it a try.
Summary: I use this palm to help aid with my everyday crazy life. From ghost hunting to home inspections, i downloaded doc. to go and found that the hidden camera is a plus when doing home inspections, keeps me from carrying around an extra camera and i'm also able to take pictures of damaged things and also take pictures of anything!!
Summary: Palm Zire 71 is a fully functioning yet very simple to use PDA. The screen is very legible and bright. You can adjust the fonts for the letters. The appointment calendar and address features are well organized. It is easy to search for a keyword within the Palm. The unit also synchs with Apple and Windows at the same time. In other words, I synch with both a PC running XP and a Mac. The Palm updates each computer appropriately. There is also a camera function.
Summary: The Palm Zire 71 handheld computer is a rather simple device, especially by today's standards. But that's just what I like about it - an uncluttered device with all the right functions and no unnecessary ones - all right, I could do without the camera which is extremely rudimentary anyway. But the basic functions - calendar, addressbook etc are just as they should be, and synchronisation works perfectly.
Summary: Palm only sold this model for a limited time, then they moved on to advanced models leaving this great product behind unfairly. One of the major complaints at the time was that the joy stick would get moved and turn on the unit, running down the battery while still in the case. However this could be resolved easily by buying a better case. The joystick was actually a pro to this device, making many functions easier to use.
