  • Excerpt: I got one of these PDAs for Christmas in 2002/3. I have had it for over a year now, so am used to exactly how it works. I have had good and bad experiences with this unit. The problem is that if you leave it with a dead battery for too long, you loose your data.
  • Pros: This PDA runs linux, has a neat flip down keyboard, has microsoft compatible programs, works with wireless networking / digital cameras / GPS modules and allows data transfer to both linux and windows PCS
  • Cons: The Battery is poor and the unit will loose data if left with a dead battery .  Stylus tends to break .
