I am in need of a portable brain. Never had the need or want of one before though, so I'm going in blind and I am overwhelmed with the variety of PDAs, handhelds, and smartphones available. I am also torn over what I truly want.
One side says go for just a good, basic, PDA. The Palm Z22 seems to fit that description perfectly. I have a local phone here as well as a US phone. Do I really need or want another?
The other side of me says, for a bit more cash, I can get all the bells and whistles. I may not need them at first, but I may regret not getting them as I get used to using the device. If I do go for the phone and all, I will need an unlocked quad-band for international roaming. Skype access or similar would also be good.
I've been doing some looking around, and these are my two favorites so far:
The Palm Treo 650 It's not the newest version, but I really do not want the super sports car model - If we consider the V22 to be a VW bug, you might say that I am looking at this Treo and the Nokia below, as something more like a modern hybrid SUV or equivalent. More features and practical goodies, but not useless luxuries that I'll never need.
I also like the Nokia N810. It looks great, and I think the customizable aspect would be very handy (fun), but how well does this pencil-case-looking thingy work as a cellphone?
Anyone have any experience with these? Any other favorites?
