2 part post here:

1. Can anyone tell me (or gimme a link) to where I can find all the Mac compatible pocketPCs.

2. PocketPCs have pocketWord/excel, are their word/excel proggies for the Palm OS too? If so, how well do the Palm versions work w/the desktop versions of Word and excel?

Thanx,

Lethal

1. see above post

2. Yes, it's called Docs to Go, by DataViz. It lets you view all of M$ office's documents on your palm. I have it on my m505 right now.

Is Docs to Go just a viewer, or can I edit/create word/excel docs w/it as well?


Thanx for the link too.

there is a viewer and a editor application that lets you edit the files, but truthfully speaking, the screens on both the pocketpc and the palm are too small to do anything useful except for viewing stuff. The clie NR70V on the other hand, is a different story. Whil pocketpcs are usually running at 320x240 resolution, the clie runs at 480x320 res--50% more screen real estate.

I'm not looking to create docs from scratch, but in my new job all of the schedules, contacts, etc., are done in word and excel so if something changes I just want to be able to make changes using my PDA and still have the "fixed" version work fine on my laptop.
