My wifes birthday is coming up and i want to get her a pda, whats a good one for around $300 maybe $350.
 
Really depends on what she will use it for...(really). If she does not need lots of actual computing power then you can get her a nice Palm TungstonE and a 256 mb card for less than that from newegg.com.

If you need more you can get the Palm Tungsten 5 for abt $350. NOTE: Currently if you look on the Palmone site they are offering the Tungsten5 (and throwing in $85 wifi card for Free).

If you want to go the pocket PC route you will be paying a fair amount more for essentially similar features....most of the pocket PCs come with built in Wifi though...

If you can hold off for a while I hear Palm is comming out with a newer line with Wifi Included. I don't have any details though.

(my wife just needed scheduling/calender/notes/address book/simple exel/etc......so the TungstenE works well for her)
 
Sorry i'll be more specific,

I want to get her something that looks good, something that can play mp3's, so it needs to either have an SD or CF slot intergrated. Wifi or Bluetooth isn't really important. It also needs to have Word, Excel, Outlook and Iexplorer, or similar programs.

I also want the screen to be colour/color for sure. It also needs to have an audio jack for headphones. boy is that a lot hey, but the asus pocket pc's have these features, Do you know of any others, does the palms have any of this?
 
It'll have to be PocketPC if you specifically want excel, word and IE. You'll find this on HP Ipaqs and Packard Bell PDAs.

I've just got an upgrade on O2 to an XDA IIi which seems to be very nice. As well as being a phone, it's got all those features mentioned in this thread - wifi, bluetooth and the software.
 
Oh, not sure if the XDA mini is out, but that too has bluetooth and the software. A neat little thing that. I think it's about the size of the Nokia 7650.
 
i don't want it to be tiny, a regular sized one would be good.

thats the imate jam here its a little wider and a bit taller than the 7650, but its a good pda, a lot of people have it here. its a phone too and that jacks the price up, its about 720 dollars here

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
