ok ok i know this has been done to death but please bear with me. ok over the past few years i've gained experience of Palm, Handspring and HP/PocketPC. The PDA market is reportedly dying. The reason why is that all the offerings are not fulfilling the need of the PDA user. Pocket PC is aimed at laptop replacement. Newer PalmOS is trying to compete with this. This is the wrong approach for the majority of users. Handspring/PalmOne quality control is appauling and customer service even worse. Only a fool would buy a pDA from this company (see amazon comments for zire21 for a start...any model has probs tho) This leaves Sony who aren't Mac compatible. I have 200 notes here (uk money) for a color (not completely necessary), very small PDA for just organising my life (and PDAs do help for mst people). As the market clearly isnt providing what the user wants (like the MP3 player market before ipod) i think apple could step in.
