I think this could be a page on it's own linked to from both the Palm and PocketPC pages (and maybe as a counterpoint from the HPDA page). Please, comment, contribute do what wikizens do.

Well, first comment of my own: Obviously, brevity (or a lack thereof) is one of my strongest shortcomings in some places here. I'm trying to strip down some of those paragraphs into sentences and just generally tidy it up a bit.

Pulling a couple of things out here. As you say, brevity isn't a problem ;) -- ironically however there are things that should be less brief, I think. Viz (in the last section):

  • It's easier than most paper organizers. Why?
  • Why does Graffitti 2 leave much to be desired?

"With a paper-based system, there is always some data redundance. You have your boss's address and phone number written in your paper address book but his email is stored in the address book for your email program.

The same paragraph could be written about PDAs -- data (storage) redundance is as much a problem with them as with paper.

Phones as PDAs

Many of the advantages of an electronic PDA can be found on good mobile phones. For example, mine syncs with my calendar and address book, I can play games, listen to the radio and music, and store and take pictures (sony ericsson k700i) as well as make calls. It can do e-mail but I already have two e-mail inboxes so don't really want another one! I find it complements my hipster PDA and I can also use it for task lists and notes (getting quite good at typing using predictive text - do PDAs use that?). --Sophia 03:04, 13 Apr 2005 (EDT)
