    New Handheld - Which One?

    Heya Guys and Gals.

    My Parents went off to Singapore on holiday yesterday, and they have asked me if i want anything..

    I think I might get a handheld PC - The Sony Clie

    Looks quite nice.

    what do you guys think?

    Any other good suggestions would be appreciated..

    Regards
    Asif

    I have the Siemens SX45... mobile and Windows Pocket PC in one. No adaptor cards, no cable between mobile and PDA, just pure joy!

  7. Mike,
    Its been launched in the states for few months.

    Anyway retrohelix, you should not get PDA from Singapore.
    Ive stayed in Singapore for quite sometime and I can tell you PDAs are definitely more expensive there. Average 20% more expensive than USA. People in Singapore are importing PDAs from USA and now you wanna try the other way.

    Anyway I got my Toshiba e740 2 weeks ago, I will say go for this one.

    Kool. I will check it out. I need something. Always on the go.

  11. Yeah, when you get your PDA you might wanna check out www.palmgear.com .
    Actually it is only after I research for PDA softwares that I got tempted into buying PDAs. I always go "Darn, you mean you can do that on the PDA???" ....after sometime, the temptation got really strong and the rest is history.

    Looks like I didnt catch my parents in time....

    ....got a call this morning from Barclaycard (CC Company..):

    He asks me who the card number belongs to, so I told him it was my dads..then he goes to me: "I am sorry sir, but it seems like somebody has stolen your parents credit card, because in the last two days the card has reached its $12,000 dollar limit..at first I actually thought It had been nicked, cos its been frauded online before..

    So I asked Him what the person had spent all the money on - he said "Mostly Electrical - TV's, Computers, Etc..and some household equipment.." I told him it was no fraud, but it had actually been purchased..

    Then, 10 Mins later, my uncle (he's a joint account holder) phones me up and starts complaining to me, basically saying that I made them buy loads of stuff, and now he cant use his CC cos theres nothing left on the joint one!

    Looks like im gonna be having a nice weekend next week, so

    I like the Sony Clie. I have one myself and all my friends have them. They are strong and last long. My dad uses Palm and hes on his 5th one now becasue they just kinda die. So i say go for sony clie

  14. I would have bought CLIE few months ago if not for the memory stick problem. Sometimes you will find yourself not able to read from the memory stick. I was an ex-NR70V fanatic, before I dive into the world of Pocket PC, I never look back ever since.
    Many of my friends using Palm are slowly going for PPC. I never hear any PPC users going for Palm

    Hey Asif,

    My friend has one of those sony's, its nice, but I can't see it beating my gadget. I have a Compaq iPAQ Pocket PC - its marvelous and I couldn't be happier with it. One of the best purchases I made, and still able to compete with the new palmtops two years on....

    Can I ask how you people have been using these devices? Sounds like they can come in handy while on the road.

    Wll the thing I love on my pocket pc is something called "transcriber". You write anywhere on the screen in your *normal* handwriting and it will translate whole sentencesm even multiple sentences, into computer type. Its awesome when you're out and about, need to make notes at conference or in a meeting with clients etc.

    Couldn't imagine not having it now...

    I looked at the iPAQ, but it seemed to bulky for me..

    I did want something that I would be able to use email on, but it seems like I'm only going to get one fo those from the UK.

    It seems like if I need the PDA for looks, I might at well het the clie..

    Well, I shall know by next week..
