Hi

I am thinking about buying a pocket PC (iPaq?) Any recs on which one is better over another or which model is better? I would also like to know exactly what I will need to use it to full potential. The main purpose will be to check Outlook email and use internet. Do I need a wireless router? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I dont have a pocket pc i have a sony clie (the palm version) i love it, clies also have a pocket pc big brother that is snazzy and pretty powerful with lots of storage wifi and a camera. The processor size for pocket pcs might be due for a jump as AMD are going to release a new mini version of there latest cpus that will fit in a pocket pc(or so they say) it would be worth looking in to.

An I-mode phone. ;)

For all PDAs goes, alone they cannot do much. (connectionwise)
PDAs with bluetooth can usually connect to the internet via a cellphone with bluetooth. You have PDAs that connect via WiFi, but then you need another
computer to connect to. ( Compact Flash WiFi cards and even SD WiFi cards exist )

I myself have one computer connected to the internet, via Bluetooth I can connect to it with my PDA and surf and read mail. Speeds are acceptable. The biggest problem is that the browser on the PDA does not understand DOM/Javascript (It does seem to understand most of the normal javascript)
Soooooo...

This is what you really want :tazz:
But it's not a PDA.

Success! ;)
