    PDAs with SSH

    I had a Treo 650 for a while and hated the thing. It constantly hung and rebooted and usually at the most inappropriate times. So far I see that the Treo700 is a better option, but looking for opinions on other PDA/Phones that are capable of running SSH. Have to hand these out to a coupe of people so want them to be durable and dependable.

    PuTTy has variations on almost all PDAs.
    I had a Nokia 9500 and currently am using a Nokia e61.

    The communicator is quite unstable and very expensive.
    The E61 is a much cheaper solution and more stable.

    We use the PPC-6700 on Sprint. Verizon and some other providers offer a similar phone, based on the HTC Apache design. I use mToken as the SSH program, but you can also download Pocket PuTTY for free.

    Featurewise, it's similar to the Treo 700W, but I like the sliding keyboard and larger screen. It supports EV-DO, Wifi, and Bluetooth, and can be used as a modem for a laptop.

    Leaning towards the Blackberry 8700 I think. Wasn't really asking what type of SSH programs, just want the ability. I carry a wireless card in the laptop, but there are lots of times where I can save customers and employees time by hopping online on the phone.

    Does the Blackberry have expansion slots? I was considering that and the E61 when I was making my purchase and realised the Blackberries had limited expansion capabilities and got the E61 instead.

    I also use the PPC6700 and am very satisfied with it. I used Putty, but switched to PockeTTY. A lot more stable than PuTTY in my opinion.

    I have the Treo 650 and I absolutley love it...

    After I figured out the rebooting issue, I have had zero problems with it and it's incredibly reliable.

    I use pSSH on it and Chattermail for my mail client and they work great!

    I would reconsider surrendering your Treo 650 and do some research to the infamous reboot syndrome, you'd be surprised how easy it is to fix.

    Cheers!

    Went through 2 650s that had booting issues and hanging issues. Went through probably 10 different firmwares offered trying to fix them also, always the same problem on the cingular network.

    As good as putty is on the desktop on the phone is sucks.

    Is as good as it gets, well worth the money.
    It formats to fit your screen you can store IP addresses etc.. Much more control, only ssh client I found that I could really do productive work with on a phone.
