“Upgraded to Palm Zire 72 from a Sony Clie Peg sl10...”

Written on: 27/10/2005 by zinzan (3 reviews written)

Good Points
Great Screen, clear to see, very easy to use, good size internal memory and great applications supplied with it.

Bad Points
No wifi - optional card available - works well and is simple to set up, however with wifi on, battery lasts an hour max. Screen has a slight whine

General Comments
Upgraded to Palm Zire 72 from a Sony Clie Peg sl10 and wow what an upgrade! - I thought the Clie had everythin I'd evey need, but this is awesome! - I got the GPS package with software from Viamichelin..which has finally been upgraded to a usable version.

The Palm PDA (not pocket PC as described above!) is an awesome bit of kit, has applications like documents to go etc. Bundled with it that are a breeze to use. Downside would be no application to transfer applications from memory card to handheld memory, but Freeware Filez takes care of this. Also has a voice recorder and digital camera built in. I use this as a portable movie player too, thanks to freeware tcpmp - and there is enough battery life to last a full movie. I haven't had battery problems like the other reviewer mentioned - yes it needs charging regularly, but for what it does its great. unless you use it hours everyday, the battery should last a week easily - I find I charge it and my cellphone at the same time.

Camera is functional, but not up to a decent stand alone digital camera (it's all in the lens!) but is ok for party shots etc. Easy to use, comfortable to hold, very happy with it - now if only itunes was available for it!!!

definitely 10/10. Planning on getting the keyboard so I can type up notes more easily on my commute.

Downsides as mentioned above - screen has a slight whine (can only hear it if hold it close to ear), and no application to transfer files from memory card (solution - freeware filez)
