Pretty happy with it. I can't tell you how long the battery lasts but I don't see the battery give out in a day and even if I don't connect in a week, it's still good. I'll leave battery time tests to others.
Just ordered one for my dad's birthday gift.
I'm planning a three-week trip around-the-world for this summer. I've pretty much decided I don't want to drag a full-blown laptop around, but would still like to have some minimal web/email support. I'll have my GSM phone, so I'm looking for a PDA rather than a full phone. So I'm looking for a PDA, probably $500 or less, like so:
- Maybe Bluetooth
- Good/large screen
- reasonable web browser
- long battery life
- usual address/calendar stuff
- sync-able with Macs
- not a phone
- Exchange support for e-mail (I'll be getting e-mail through some web-based service, although a POP client wouldn't be bad)
- Music (I'll have my iPod)
- massive (gigabytes) amounts of built-in storage
If I had to buy something in the next five minutes, the Palm TX looks like a pretty close match, in terms of the screen, browser, wifi, and Mac support. I'm not religiously opposed to a Windows Mobile device, but the lack of Mac support and presence of Windows stuff I won't need argues against it. Any thoughts out there? Are there devices other than Palms and WindowsMobile that I should think about?
