    Just looking for some buying advice regarding a Mac compatible moblie device.
    Is considering a Palm TX an archaic idea? Should I be afraid of windows based devices if all i want to do is view/edit/create text documents?

    I am looking for a cost effective way to :

    > perform Word processing task (ability to view/edit/create text documents)
    > transfer text documents back & forth to my mac
    > have WiFi enabled email + web browsing
    > have a QWERTY keyboard (real or virtual)
    > touch screen + "doodle" option would be a major bonus

    Telephone communication isn't important to me but is the PDA concept dead and should I be looking at a smartphone?

    For basic word processing on multiple devices, you might want to try Google Docs. It's a very nice service.

    And it works particularly well on the iPhone. :)
