    In case you weren't aware, Bluetooth is a wireless technology. It's also available now from what I understand.What peripherals are available for the SD slot besides bluetooth (or a supposedly upcoming 802.11 card)? The niche Margi one is the only other one I've heard of.
    Because you obviously know so much more than anyone else?
    Why? If it isn't relevant to what he's saying, leaving the whole thing in is just wasting space.




    Yeah how is that view from those cheep seats anyways ?

    Ok boys, play nice....

    To each its own, every PDA is aimed at a specific market, all you need to do if figure out in which market you are...

    That's a fairly nonsensical reply given the context. Why don't you actually try to be adult and address what was said?

    1. You made a comment about the 'wow' factor of watching a video trailer or a TV show on a PDA. I can't think of a single acquaintance of mine that would be 'wow'ed by that. They'd ask me (justifiably) why I didn't just buy a portable DVD player if I wanted to watch video like that on the go. But then again, I have friends and acquaintances who go beyond a limited circle of gadget-geeks. The NR-70 is a nice kit for reasons that go beyond show-off factors that appeal to one's inner brat.

    2. Yorick said that other than wireless, he thought that SDIO was fairly useless. You said he was 'far from the truth' and then 'rebutted' with a wireless application, i.e. Bluetooth. I then asked you to provide examples which might prove him wrong other than the wireless technologies of Bluetooth and 802.11 (which would prove him right). You provided nothing. We can only conclude from that that you don't have any (and he was spot on the truth). Oops.

    3. If you're going to quote me, only quote the relevant parts to your reply and snip the rest.

    I'm being quite nice so far, and I've yet to see any reason to be otherwise.

    Okay Okay people...as founder of this post I would like to put in my 2 cents.

    The movie feature is neat, my Dad can and has done that on his iPaq 3850. He currently has two or three movie trailers and a short animated film. It's a great feature, except that there is no real use for it. The screen is too small to really catch any of the detail and his speaker is to quiet. It does garner wows from his friends, but for long term use it's useless.

    That said, I am a college student looking for usability as my primary target. A wow factor is nice, but paying an extra $500CDN so I can watch movies (to which I would probably have to buy $169CDN memory stick to store these movies on) and take little pictures of people (the camera doesn't work to well in low light anyhow, anyone been to the new Futureshop on Broadway in Vancouver? I couldn't even get the camera to show anything in that store.). That said, I've noticed the vote is now split down the middle with one for the stowaway (man, you guys must hate the PPC) but I am still leaning towards the Treo 90. I held one yesterday, man are they nice. Though even the demo unit Future Shop had had the stylus falling out problem...has anyone noticed this on recent units?
    Alex.

    P.S. Boys stop your "pointing things out" It does have a wow factor, but it's not a practical use, it's a toy feature, something my dad and all adults who have money to spend on toys enjoy, but not me, a starving college student. (And please don't send me any comments saying I should save my money...I know that already)

    Only if it's in US$.

    That was basically my point.

    Well, as I said, I think that the NR70's screen combined with a way to plug in a standalone DVD player small enough and cheap enough to have the overall package less than one of those standalone portables might be workable, though.
    [...] (man, you guys must hate the PPC) [...]
    I can't speak for anyone else, but I don't hate it. I'm just not fond of it. I even think I could like it in the right package (the Toshiba e740 is dangerously close).

    I've got much better toys to spend my money on.

    Get the T665c (for the MP3 player) or the T615c (for the slightly better battery life, and cheaper cost!)

    I believe both are available at SonyStyle.ca right now, and both are cheaper, while almost as good, as the NR70(v)
    Blue Visor Deluxe ~ Clie T615 ~ Zire 71 ~ Treo 650 ~ Palm Centro

    Both have potential but I am really trying to go for a handheld that has a keyboard without having to invest another $200CDN on a Stowaway...

    IF you already have a stowaway for the visor and springboards, why not just upgrade from your Neo to the Visor Pro.

    The pro is probably around the same price your Neo was when you bought it, and add to that the long-life rechargable battery and the fact that you can still use the stowaway you currently have for the Neo with the Pro.

    If you just want to get a whole different PDA, then go with the Treo 90.

    I think I am leaning towards the Treo 90...One of my big requirements is a colour screen. I can put rechargables and more memory in my Neo but I can't (As far as I know) put a colour screen in there. Also the little keyboard is really nice, though I seem to be the only person that truly loves it and won't miss graffiti...

    No, I don't have one, what I was meaning is that I would have to invest another $200 on top of the cost of the Sony Clie in order to fulfill my desire to have a keyboard.

    Oh no, looks like the NR70V has taken up 50% of the vote again...hmmm..anyone want to contribute to the "Get Alex a NR70V Foundation"?
    Alex.

    Sony Clie's are off my list since they only support the memory sticks. Too bad, since they are excellent machines.

    I have CF cards and that is one requirement for my next PDA.

    C'mon people...vote for the Treo, you're making me feel guilty for wanting it more than the NR70V...Right now the price of the Treo is much more appealing than the NR70...even the not V model.
    Alex.

    20 votes does not count as a truly scientific sampling of sentiment on the VisorCentral boards.

    Bottom line is you get what you're comfortable spending YOUR money on. Don't let a bunch of Sony traitors tell you what to get.

    heh Even if it did, I still can't see how anyone could let others pick their PDA for them (or even care about others' thoughts on it). They're _personal_ digital assistants, after all, not Group Consensus Digital Assistants or Popular Digital Assistants.
    Bottom line is you get what you're comfortable spending YOUR money on.
    If he wouldn't be comfortable spending his money on the Sony, then why put it as an option?
    Don't let a bunch of Sony traitors tell you what to get.
    Don't assume that everyone who voted that he should get a Sony would purchase one themselves.

    Nah, I am just trying to sway the boards...ultimately I may take this poll into account but if the board is contrary to my desires than screw you guys (no offense). In hindsight I have almost completely lost interest in the NR70V..too big for what I want. Instead I am trying to decide whether to get a Treo 90 or go for the cell and get a Treo 180. I would love to throw away my aging cell phone but I would love a colour screen, and no, I don't have enough money for a 270, even if I could find one in Canada.
    Alex.

    P.S. What I was really hoping to get out of this thread was people writing in with their opinions based on their usuage of product A or product B.

    you decide yet?

    It's all about how you spend the money.

    As a matter of fact, yes, it was just today that I bought myself a Treo 90...I absolutely love it, it was just what I wanted (though that bright patch in the upper corner of my screen is a bit annoying, but that is supposedly an integral part of the screen...)
    Alex.
    Goodbye my lovely Treo
