Palm Zire - the basics of handheld computing

XaanderLe, Ciao
30 October 2008
  • Excerpt: I've had my Palm Zire for around about two years now and it was great value for money when I got it (£20 in the bargain basement section of Woolworths) and I have used it on and off every day since. The software that comes pre installed is quite useful and it is very easy to find additional software on the internet.
  • Pros: easy to use, lots of programs, everything you need is supplied with the unit
  • Cons: no backlight, only 2MB of memory

  • Excerpt: The size of Palm Zire is actually quite handy for me, it's not too small, but not a brick! The extras that you can buy for Palm Zire these include my fave: an attachable keyboard. There's no digital camera or clour screen, but there is the power to beam notes and applications to your family and friends who also have Palm Zires! With 2MB Memory to save all of your data and applications onto, it's not much space but then again the applications don't use up alot of space.
  • Pros: Quite Cheap, Small, Great Maker !  Send your friends notes and applications through Beaming !
  • Cons: Not alot of Memory, Black & White Screen

Was Disappointed With Zire....

samkthema..., Ciao
16 June 2004
  • Excerpt: I was utterly disappointed with the Zire. It cost me £70 new, and was no better than my Vx, which cost less. I ended up selling the Zire after a week, and went back to my Vx. I found every aspect of it cheap, except from the price. The stylus was poor. The cover was flimsy, to say the least. The screen was tiny. There were only 2 appliction buttons. AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!
  • Pros: Looks good, rechargeable
  • Cons: cheap stylus, cheap cover, tiny screen, not colour

affordable invaluable organiser

bottombur..., Ciao
13 June 2004
  • Excerpt: I started using my zire in desperation when my work seemed to be piling up, and I couldn't see what to do next, couldn't think straight, double booked myself... sound familiar? Very easy to carry around with you, simple to use, could potentially save your sanity! Stores dates, anniveraries, tasks, addresses, phone numbers, and you write on it like a notepad.
  • Pros: Simple to use, touch screen
  • Cons: no back light, can be difficult to see screen

Andyx, Ciao
12 June 2004
  • Excerpt: I bought this item a couple of months ago as an upgrade to my previous handheld and even though it doesn't have as many features as the £200-£400 handhelds the zire is a pretty good little organiser and with its USB connectivity its really easy and quick to synchronise with multiple programs.
  • Pros: Saves Carrying around numerous pieces of paper & diary
  • Cons: None really

Buy cheap - Pay dear!

12 January 2004
  • Excerpt: A friend of mine recently bought a Palm Zire to replace his now defunct Psion Revo, and was mystified when he could not get it to synch with his Outlook on the computer. He returned it to the shop as a faulty, and had to go to another store to purchase another. The price of the Palm Zire had been slashed to £50, so, being a canny Scot, he decided to take another chance. This is where I came in.
  • Pros: Portability
  • Cons: Does not synch with computer

Zire is a great little organiser

youngbed, Ciao
4 November 2003
  • Excerpt: The Palm Zire is one on the handiest pieces of technology I have purchased. Though I have heard bad comments about the Zire compared to its fellow palm bigger brothers, the Zire is an excellent piece of equipment at a low price. To sum it up, it is Microsoft outlook in your hand! But there is more! . . .
  • Pros: Easy to use, small, inexpensive organiser .
  • Cons: No memory expansion, No Backlight

Great first time PDA

gamewaves, Ciao
29 October 2003
  • Excerpt: I have been looking to purcahse a PDA for ages but have never gor down to deciding which one is suited to me. I am a student who likes to make notes on the go, keep a list of contacts and play some games in any spare time. In my opinion the palm zire is perfect for someone like me. The only con is that it only has 2MB of memory, which restricts the number of games that can be downloaded.
  • Pros: Small, Light, Compact and cheap
  • Cons: No Backlight, Only 2MB of memory

Looks cool, but a bit expensive

dobieg, Ciao

  • Excerpt: The name of Palm will forever be linked with Personal Digital Assistants, and remains one of the most respected manufacturers in the field. Let's get down to brass tacks - a PDA is a small handheld device which you use in much the same way that you would a Filofax, you keep your phone list, diary, to do list etc on it, the benefit in using an electronic device is that you can keep a copy on your personal Computer, and can cross-reference items to each other.
  • Pros: PalmOS gives access to many legacy 3rd party apps
  • Cons: Overpriced, underpowered
