Internet Wireless capability can be absolutely priceless! And it's a regular Palm to boot!
This model is slightly larger than the Palm III models, and
many accessories do not fit. Also, wireless access cost is
too high, but dropping. The 2MB original model may be limiting,
but an 8MB model is rumored to be coming.
I had not used a Palm before, and got this as a techno toy
rather than as an organizer. As an organizer, it's very
handy, and I have just about abandoned my paper day-timer.
However, the wireless internet access turned out to be
absolutely outstanding when I took a trip to the Eastern
U.S. recently. I could still access my e-mail, although
my parents did not have an internet connection. Even
more valuable, the flight information (gate and luggage
assignments) was extremely helpful. It's superb -- but now
my wife wants one...BTW, I paid about $450. An 8MB model
is said to be on the way -- highly recommended.
