    I'm in the market for a new PDA and need some suggestions. The main thing it's got to have is bluetooth/isync capabilities or just something that is able to sync in some way/shape/form with iCal and Address Book atleast. Also wanting to keep the price as low as possible. I'm not really looking for the whole cell phone/pda combo though if there was something out there that was good enough...i MIGHT think about it.

    My Palm Tungsten T3 syncs via BT on my PB with no issues. I have, at various times, synced it with Palm Desktop, iSync, and Entourage. I use Palm at the moment.

    Second that.
    In my eyes the T3 is better than it's newer big brother the T5, and cheaper :) (if you can find it)
    I use it with iCal, Address book and iSync.
    It works a lot better in tiger now too (with itunes 4.8) as there are less devices to confuse it.
    I also sync ical to my mobile phone, a SE T630

    Why would you say the T3 is better than the T5?

    pick up any PDA magazine or go to any PDA review website, and i think i will be backed up.
    The T3 comes with a good leather screen flip and a dock and is virtually identical in terms of power.
    Look here and here

    8.5 plays 7.5, your move!

    Do you know of any place that actually compares the T3 to the T5?

    NOT the Palm Tungsten C -- AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
    It looks like a nice one: good screen, Blackberry-style keyboard, WiFi....for two in a row for me, the screen spontaneously cracked after about eight months of careful, if serious, use.

    Others have had the problem.
