Product is great, but I'm disapointed they took the camara away from v37

Summary: I have V36 but thought that maybe the V37 was better. I'm happy that it works just fine the one i bought from E-bay. I hate the fact that V37 comes with every thing but the camara, and camara software. V36 gave a gallery of my images V37 does not. if i had paid over 50.00 dollars i would be kicking my self in the ass,expecting a nice evolution from the viewsonic V36 to the V37 hand held pocket PC.
Summary: Viewsonic v37 First off, the reason I wanted a v37 is because I found out the hard way there is only a few things you can do with a palm pilot and when I heard microsoft had an operating system for a pda, "Microsoft Windows pocket pc" I thought it must be decent so I did a search here on ebay and found this v37 which looked decent and also had some cool features. So I waited for a while until I found the deal I wanted and bought one.
Summary: I've had two ViewSonic pocket PCs and have never had one problem with either of them. I'm not a techy person -- just use them for contacts and calendar mainly -- but they've both worked perfectly since Day 1. The screen is bright and clear, they sync up easily and quickly, and all Microsoft functions have worked well. If you just plan to use the basics, I would highly recommend this PDA.
Summary: I purchased the product because it offered Microsoft .Net compatibility. The product locks up regularly for no apparent reason. When it locks up the only option is to reset, clearing all data and software installs. If you purchase the product get very familiar with Backup and Restore procedures. I am currently restoring the system once per week.

Summary: I received a V37 as a promotional deal that packaged it with a new MSDN Universal subscription (Microsoft's Software Developer tools). It was better than my Palm m505 at the time so I used the V37. I had no complaints for the few years that I used it until recently when I could no longer sync (transfer data between the V37 and my computer). I believe it's a hardware problem with the port on the V37 itself to which the USB cable connects.
Summary: If you buy this pda and your battery stops charging you'll lose it. THERE IS NO WHERE ON THIS PLANET (I mean it), NOT A SINGLE STORE where you can find the BP8BULXBIAP1 battery. Viewsonic DISCONTINUED the V37 and the manufacturer in Taiwan won't bother to reply. Once the battery dies, you'll lose your pda. I have one, unfortunately. Buy another brand, so when the battery dies you can just get a new one, like that on your fingers.
