    I am looking to buy a palm handheld. I just wanted to know if they sync with Mac OS X?

    I know that the Windows Mobile ones don't, but do ones which run the palm software?

    Thanks

    I've got a Palm Tungsten T3, and it syncs fine. According to the iSync supported devices page, all Tungstens and Zires are supported natively by iSync.

    I've heard lots of people say good things about syncing their Windows Mobile device using The Missing Sync, but I've never tried it myself.

    I have a Palm T|X. Works fine with iSync, however, you have to initiate a sync from the Palm (HotSync). iSync uses a "conduit" through the Palm Desktop software.

    I have a Treo 650- syncs better on OS X than on my old XP machine ;)

    Treo 700p works syncs almost perfectly once you get it setup...only flaw I've come across is iCal and my Palm can't see each other's alarms. (Thankfully, it syncs due dates and everything else.)
