Best PDA with USB 2.0 Host Capability

by d_blitz13 / December 13, 2006 8:42 AM PST

I figure I am not the only one that cannot find a decent PDA with USB Host capabilities.

Does anyone out there have or know of a PDA that is as good as the latest... lets say Dell x51v or whatever... that has USB 2.0 support.

I dont think these companies (Dell, Palm) know how important this feature is to most of us... to hook up some decent memories for our music and videos ... sorry Palm.. your 4 GB harddrive just aint good enough.

You have to move to the UMPC or...

Look at the Zaurus. However check the Zaurus host speed (should be USB 1.1)

The Sony UMPC, the Oqo and others are noted at

UMPC an option

Thanks for the reply Bob,

I never really looked into UMPC before now, and I like what I see, the only problem is that they offer just a few more features than one of the great PDA's out there and cost 3+ times more. Plus, who needs a 7 inch screen on a portable pc, way to big if you ask me... if only the Archos 604 included all the PDA functions that we see in the Dell x51v ... man that would be the ultimate product...

Any more suggustions and I would GREATLY appreciate it.

Thanks bob.
