I long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away I had a 3com Palm Pilot - like the original or close to it. After many years of reliable service (through countless abuse) it finally died. I wanted to replace it with a PalmOne Tungsten E2 but after doing a little research, I'm not sure that is the right way to go. People seem generally bummed (and even pissed off) with Palm these days. I thought about getting a Handspring Visor Prizm (I'd kind of like a color screen) but those seem to be only marginally more reliable and liked. Most people had problems inside a year of using them (both models). I don't get it. Isn't technology supposed to improve over time? My original Palm with it's dismal little black on muddy green display lasted what seemed like forever (even after serveral drops to the ground).
Is there ANY PDA under $200 with a nice, clear, bright, reliable screen (and OS, hardware, etc.) out there?
Remember I'm coming from being pretty happy with a 3com Palm Pilot so anything will be an upgrade. I should mention the screen on the Zire Z22 was WAY too small. 160 x 160 or larger is a must.
