Bluetoothed at least twice better than bluetooth-less.
12 May 2011
Summary: This is very rare Bluetooth-enabled TH-55 from Sony. Rare European version, that is. 5 years before other similar looking products came to the market, it allowed any and all that can be expected from handheld. You are very lucky if you have one like this and a knowledge what to do with it, such as SMS, mail and so on via mobile phone.
Summary: I have used many PDA's for the past five to seven years. My introduction to Clie's started with a job where using it was manditory. I have always had great experiences with clies and the PEG-TH55 much the same. The manual shutter/door on the camera lense does keep it free of debris. A neat change is the translucent cover, previous covers wear and fall apart, also it being clear helps to see whats noted when the alarm sounds.
Still the best PDA especially user interface buttons
8 October 2009
Summary: PDA, Unlike cellphone or smartphone made to communicate between the user and him/her self. since sony first show the th55 there was no other device even capable of holding software and operating it so smooth. the best user interface is the back mouse buttons (patented by Sony) and the stylus which is very easy to use as hand writing recognition. single button camera and recording completes the picture.
Summary: Best Sony Clie of them all. Long battery life, 32 MB RAM, full-size 480 x 320, bright screen. Docs to Go runs dreamlike. The TH55 was Sony's very last Clie marketed in the U.S. Unlike all the other models, Sony revised the built-in apps with additional capabilities. The new Memo pad has a 32K byte text buffer, the old OS4 apps only had 4K. The new Todo app has outliner-like hierarchical ordering capability.
Summary: Good: Fast processor and high resolution screen gives beautiful a display. The wifi connects fast, and comes in handy when I need info away from home. The screen cover is nice to keep the screen clean and free of scratches, but gets in the way at times. It comes off, but takes so much pressure that you think it's going to break before it comes loose. Bad: Location of buttons is terrible. The power button is almost imposible to slide, without using a fingernail.
Summary: I loved it at first glance but it was to difficult to use. My wi fi does not work as well. I use it now only for a camera and back up for my data. If your good with Gadgets, buy it but it's obsolete getting repairs and such so think twice before buying one. All in all, I wouldn't of bought it if I knew what I know now.
Summary: I have owned many different PDA and none can touch functionality of Clie TH55 and it's ruggedness. This PDA has many features that the other ones don't. I also use this device as my sound recorder for meetings, etc. has a high quality sound recording capabilities that you would find on top of the line sound recorders. Battery life is the best one in the whole industry. You will barely ever charge this thing because it usess unique technology in saving battery life.

Excerpt: "I had on older Windows CE Casio PDA before this and hardly used it. Bought the TH55 for all it's features such as WIFI and Bluetooth and Camera and use it everyday. It's been fantastic. Great battery life and good speed as well. I believe its not one of the fastest processors but to be honest I've had no problems. The diary / organiser is great with notes and pictures and voice notes which can be dragged and dropped to dates. Very useful. Having ...
