PDA Guide?

Hi everyone,

Just wondering if anyone out there knows of a place to investigate various PDA's as a friend of mine's mother want to buy her son one (he's 29 )but knows nothing about them, so she asked me but it's not something I really know too much about either.

He's a pc user so mac compatability isn't really needed.

Any help would be appreciated as most of the site's I've found are useless.

Thanks

while im not a fan of their articles or reviews of macs i would check out www.cnet.com's review section, its usually pretty helpful except for when it comes to macs, but as you said that isnt an issue here.....

Treo 600/650

I would recommend the Treo, it also serves as a mobile phone. Very nice, has bluetooth, camera that makes movies, HD screen, good stuff...

But of course it is also a phone so it might not be exactly what she is looking for.

If you're looking for reviews, I recommend ZDNET. If you're looking for just feature comparisons, Palm's site lines that up rather nicely.

you might have to search a little (or simply scroll through the review index), and it might work best if you're narrowed it down to a few options and want to compare them.

good luck!
