    PalmOne LifeDrive PDA review

    By 12 July 2005

    PalmOne may be responsible in recent years for developing and dominating the PDA market. Its operating system is easy to use, developers love creating applications and possibly the most important reason: it's stable. However, therein lies the problem,...

    PalmOne Treo 650 review

    By 16 June 2005

    There was a time when the Palm operating system could do no wrong. The best handhelds ran the OS and all the cool, cutting-edge features you expected from a PDA could be found on all Palm devices. So it seems that a little strange that the changes PalmOne...

    Tapwave Zodiac 2 review

    By 24 November 2004

    When you are commuting to work in the morning, do you look around at the increasing number of PDAs that are being used on public transport? Chances are that only a small portion of them will be used for anything other than playing games. The Tapwave Zodiac...

    PalmOne Tungsten T5 review

    By 15 November 2004

    Is it an Indispensable business device or another tool to make you a slave to work? With the new T5 PDA from PalmOne we've given it to two of our reviewers, Stephen Patrick and our Gizmogirl Debbie Davies to find out. She said: Building a wall to wall...

    PalmOne Wi-Fi Card review

    By 3 October 2004

    With more and more of us turning to PDAs to give us access to our contacts book and diary when out and about it's only natural that we would start to want Wi-Fi being built in to the units. Of course you can get wireless enabled PDAs already, but for...

    Palm Zire 72 review

    By 24 May 2004

    Seems the mantra of the ‘cheap and low tech' Zire range, from PalmOne, is a refrain no longer being sung. The latest Zire, the 72, has features to challenge the Tungsten range, and is certainly well worth looking at more closely before decisions are...

    Sony Clie PEG-TH55 review

    By 17 March 2004

    There is something very Sci-Fi about the latest Personal Entertainment Organiser to burst forth from the fevered minds of the boffins at Sony’s Clie development bunker. Whether it’s the flip-up hard cover, revealing the big 320x480 pixel HGVA display...

    Palm Zire review

    By 1 February 2004

    Palm hope that its entry level PDA - the Palm Zire - will easily allow new users to have an electronic organiser without spending a lot of money, and with a price tag of just £59 it looks like it will certainly be able to do that. PDA’s can be a good...

    Palm Tungsten C review

    By 1 February 2004

    While the Tungsten W offers GSM connectivity, the Tungsten C offers Wi-Fi for the PDA user that needs to stay in touch on the move, around the house or in the office. A slightly chunky design, the Tungsten C sports a bright, large colour screen, a miniature...

    Handspring Treo 600 review

    By 9 December 2003

    The Treo 600 is the latest version of the popular mobile phone PDA from Handspring. Following on from the Treo 180 and Treo 270 there has been a big change in the style and features of the new model. The first main difference is the loss of the clam shell/Star...

    Palm Tungsten W review

    By 11 November 2003

    This is the first of the Palm range of mobile devices to enter the arena currently dominated by the XDA, top of the range IPAQ's and Blackberry. The chunky Tungsten W has combined a mobile phone with a PDA. But the addition of the mobile communications,...

    Targus Stowaway Portable Keyboard review

    By 11 November 2003

    Targus hope to make the slow and painful typing on the handspring a thing of the past with their Stowaway Portable Keyboard for the Handspring Visor. In the past, people choosing handhelds have always had the dilemma of size over input capability. If...

    Handspring Treo 180 review

    By 1 October 2003

    With digital technologies converging, the days when man could get by with a little black phone book, a couple of notes scrawled on the back of a bar receipt and a mobile phone in the other pocket are long gone. Today the modern business exec needs something...
