    Looking for an awesome palm to use for business. Is anyone familiar with this devise? I need my e-mail on the go without a doubt, and viewing files and everything would be a huge help. Anyone know?

    Thanks.

    Why not look at the 700p, especially since you mention "business." It excels at that. Ben

    E-Mail on the go, huh. I think you mean Treo, not LifeDrive .

    I would go for the TX... it is stable now and has wifi... plus it is thinner.

    How are you going to connect? If through a phone, which service provider do you have?

    I agree, the TX is a much better value for your money. It has practically everything similar to the Lifedrive and its slim. Just get a 4GB SD card and its the top dog.

    Hey I'm one of those people that NEED to have WIFI as well. It's much better than paying for expensive data plan.

    I would absolutely own a TX (or other stand-alone PDA) and tether it to a bluetooth phone *if* these PDAs had one thing: a keyboard! I can't do the screen tap or grafitti thing.

    Yeah, I am unfamiliar with Palms and Pocket PC's...how do you type quickly on them? Also, can you e-mail and check your email on the go with them?

    Thanks.

    If you have the time, take a trip to your local cell company and take a tour of their devices. There's the 700p, 700w, and a few Windows based devices.

    The 600/650/700 series are designed to fit the needs of the casual and professional user. You can do email on the go, business applications, database, games, reading, a whole bunch of things. Love those bunches. I have used the Treo series since the 300 and it has become a very important part of my routine.

    typing quickly... no, not really. To be dead honest, if I am out and someone gives me a phone number, I'll jot it down on paper and then enter to my outlook where I snyc with phone and pda. Then again, when I had to treo 650 (brief period of time) I did the same thing. My guess is you are talking about responding to emails anyway... no, I don't think it would be easy to type emails, other than yes, no, meet you at 10 or something like that.

    It really depends on what you need. I would have a Q or treo but verizon charges 40 to 45 dollars a month for data service. On my phone I can get that for free and connect through my laptop for free. I was going to get a Q or treo, but I they are not stable enough for me yet.

    On the pda side, there are ways to connect your pda with your phone... but with verizon it is hard to do with my TX via Bluetooth (815), so I left it alone. I connect with my laptop using a usb cable.... Sprint, cingular and other services are different, so it depends....

    Actually I type "fast" on the Treo, though it did take a while to get it down. I use HanDBase, ChatterEmail and text messaging heavily throughout the day.

    I have done extended pricing surveys and detailed responses using ChatterEmail. The effort you put in to it goes a long way toward what you get out of it.
