I still use the Palm 3xe, which works fine. But I have to replace the batteries about every month which is annoying, so if you do get a PDA get a rechargeable one.
I know a few people that bought WinCE devices like the iPaq who don't use them any more. I'm not sure why.
OTOH when it comes down to it a PDA most likely won't be needed to do a whole lot more than a #3 diary/address book, so perhaps you could save some money. If you can read your handwriting that is (because most of the time a PDA can't)...

in my opinion the best PALM based PDA is defintly
the sony clie series.
i have a sony clie 610 which i bought a year ago and it is excellent.
hightly recommend any of the newer ones too.
the resolution and image clarity the sony has is 10 times better than the palm ones.
you wont be disappointed

Ive got a Palm Vx and its fine.
You have to ask yourself though, "What do I need this PDA for". If youre going to use it to store addresses, Memos, bullet lists, expenses then a PDA is ideal.
If youre wanting it to write Presentations, Documents, Spreadsheets, then Id recommend a sub notebook. The interface for a PDA just doesnt cut it for these kind of jobs.
The IPaqs look great, but if youre using it for an organiser... do you really need a colour screen? My Palm Vx is monochrome, I charge it up once a month, if that!
Cheers,
Mark

If you want the cell-phone version, Verizon has a deal right now where you can get $150 rebate off the Kyocera smart-phone. I got mine a week ago & I really love it!

I have an iPAQ and am perfectly happy with it. For me,it works best as I have to travel a lot and sometimes carry my work around and opening a laptop isnt very convenient always.My Work Environment is Windows and iPAq runs on Microsoft PocketPC2 giving me everything which i usually work on ie.Outlook, Word , Excel and even Adobe Acrobat , Real PLayer and my Favourite games like Quake,etc. My office is planning to install a Wi-Fi network which will mean I can access my Network Documents and browse the Internet sitting in my Office Canteen or Different Meeting Rooms on my iPAQ too.
A bit expensive but I am using it more than I thought I would.
Hope this helps.
