View Full Version : getting a pda....

alright, i have got my eyes on getting a pda. i have unfortunately been having a lot of problems finding exactly what i want. i don't care about price (but the lower the better, obviously), but i have certain criteria that i really want to meet.

it must be a cellphone, no exceptions on this. it would be really awesome if it had a triband radio for the phone, that way i can rome on analogue (very important, but not necessary). it would be nice to have one of the 643mhz ti processors that the latest have been sporting out. a keyboard at the bottom (as opposed to touching the screen with the stylus for pressing keys) is preferred, but my handwriting is so bad that i can't use the handwriting recognition thing. it would be so awesome if it had linux (and i would do without other features i was curious about in order to get that), but i guess i could use windows if i must lol. a camera is very much so preferred, (and if it is higher res than 640x480 that would also rock). wireless network access (802.11 b/g) is very much so preferred too.

also, if there is one made by apple, that would be really awesome.

i've done so much searching and i can't find CRAP. the only luck i've had was finding adware infested websites with little to no information superior to going to something like hp.com. maybe i'm just using a bad search string or something. i'm very much so willing to go and look for myself of course, if you could just give me a website or SOMETHING gah! it's so hard to find good information about these things because it's like everyone LOVES their PDA, but if it has the features i want or not doesn't matter to them :'(.

anyway, if someone could just give me a good search string or SOMETHING lol. i'm despirate here. btw, sorry if this is in the wrong section. i had no clue where else to put it.

Sony PSP - well, once they release their webbrowser/PIM suite.

You can't use a PSP as a cell phone though can you?

Currently Apple doesn't make any pda products. I'm expecting there to be one eventually though. Apparently there is a tablet like mac being developed. I'm not an expert on pdas so I'm not sure what will suit your needs.

crap :( thanks anyway. for some reason cell phones and pda's are 2 things that it doesn't seem to have any "holy grail" of pc's. now, if i wanted a holy grail video card, i could just get a 6800ultra extreme edition... and if i didn't know crap about video cards, i could even judge it by how much it costs. buy the most expensive thing, lol.

for some reason, cell phones and pda's don't seem to follow that.

well actually the holy grail of pda's seems to be the Dell Axim x50v
