    Im looking for a PDA for a friend of mine and he wants one with the largest screen available. Processor speed is important as well. Im sure there are many of you that know much more about these things than I do, and I just dont have the time to go looking each one up and comparing specs....so, he will be using it outside, so a good screen, large and decent speeds..... Got any suggestions?

    Thanks

    The HP 4705 has a 4 inch screen, 624 MHz processor and very good VGA screen. Its the only one that comes to mind. Instead of asking for specs though, tell us what he would be using it for, and something more suitable may be suggested.

    I can do that He will be using it his business. They do home inspections and will be using these with a software package to handle the inspections. So, size of screen is important, as is a screen that is easy to see outside....

    Let me know if you need more info!

    Oh, last things...needs to run windows mobile 2003 or better, which I assume they all do now...

    Does your friend want just a PDA or a smartphone?

    If he/she wants just a PDA with a good screen then I would suggest the Dell Axim X51v. http://www1.us.dell.com/content/prod...=19&l=en&s=dhs

    If he/she wants a smartphone with a big screen then I would say get the HTC Universal (also sold as the iMate JasJar). This is the one I would get if I had the money. http://www.imatephonestore.com/produ...L=IMATE_JASJAR (I actually wouldn't suggest buying the JasJar from this site. It just has a good overview of the specs. You can find a much better deal on ebay or just googling it.)

    Hope that helps!

    Coming in March: Dualcor - that screen should be big enough.

    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    Thanks for changing the link LT. The link I originally provided only works after a refresh - odd.

    yea- the 4700 series is the largest screen available on a pda currently. it's also widely regarded as the best screen as far as readability and color accuracy. it's very well readable in any condition. the digitizer on it is also very precise and good enough to take signatures. in the next month hp will release a WM5 update to the 4700 which will make it one of the more powerful WM5 devices as well.

    Largest screen....at what price sizewise ?....maybe he wants this bugger

    http://discuss.treocentral.com/showthread.php?t=107571

    Or is it for in vehicle use only ?

    Getting down to the normal PDA size thing, new screen sizes will be hitting the streets this month starting with the IPod's new 4" job. And Pocket Loox has some 640 x 480 screens coming out.

    or how about an accessory that gives a 12" equivalent size via eyewear ?

    Is this delectable piece alive? Or dead? It seems to be a few months from when it was allegedly going to be released and I can't find anywhere to buy one. The last news on the site is dated April '06. So, anyone know if it is RIP?

    The Cowon Q5 might fit your needs. According to Cnet there will also be a 60gig coming out.

    there is also the nokia 770/800 option. It has a 4.13" screen running at 800x480 resolution. Further more it has dedicated fullscreen button and zoom in/out. Those buttons works quite well, meaning you have a window when you want to navigate programs, and the full resolution when you need it.
