Before I start let me just say that I can't get an iPhone I would like to finally move out of the age of post-it notes in my paper calendar to a PDA. However, it seems I come into this in the tail-end of the PDA only market. I would like something compatible with my MacBook Pro. The things that it must do are pretty basic: 1. Calendar 2. Store Contact Info 3. Memos/notes 4. To do lists 5. Reliable (don't want to spend more time making it work then having it work properly) 6. Bluetooth/wireless connection to my computer (not necessary, just really nice) I think that these are pretty basic functions any PDA's can perform. It would be great if these functions could synch with the programs I already have on my Mac, then I would actually use them But I'm a little confused about which devices are and are not compabile with Macs and how you make them that way (additional software needed, etc.). For instance when I googled 'Palm Pilot Mac' the Plam Pilot page touted their Mac-compatible TX device but all the features seemed way more then I needed. Can you make the lower end model Mac-compatible? Here's the second part: Ideally I'd get a smart phone type thing so I'm not carrying my phone and something else. But I'm tied to the stupid Nextel radio/walkie-talkie for work. The only smart phone they make with walkie-talkie is the Blackberry 7100i. I seem to remember reading somewhere that someone was using it synched with their Mac - can someone confirm that?
