Best PDA without a phone 

by on January 26, 2009

Q: I was wondering if you could recommend a PDA that does NOT have a phone or camera.

It must fulfill the following requirements

Windows CE: Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 or Microsoft Pocket PC 2000 (ARM/X-SCALE only) 2002, 2003, 2003 SE; Palm OS 3.5 or higher. If there’s not a PDA you can recommend, could you explain what these different requirements mean? I know there are companies like Palm and HP. Can Palm work with both Palm and HP or just a Palm?

A: Modern devices from BlackBerry and Palm (including the cool-looking Palm Pre) all have phones built into them. And because of poor security and even worse usability, I cannot recommend Windows Mobile PDAs at this time.

Therefore, I suggest that you consider purchasing an Apple iPod Touch. It has the same PDA-like functionality as Apple’s iPhone, but without features you may want to avoid: phone, Bluetooth, GPS, and camera. The iPod Touch can play music, display photos, and play videos. It currently comes with your choice of storage capacity: 8 GB, 16 GB, or 32 GB. The 8 GB iPod Touch can hold thousands upon thousands of emails, contacts, documents, etc. But if you have a large collection of multimedia files, consider purchasing either the 16 GB or 32 GB version. Learn more about the iPod Touch.

Tip: From time-to-time, Apple will release software updates for your iPod Touch. Some of these updates will be free, while others will cost money.

Laptop Alternative For Posting To Blogs While On The Road 

by on February 15, 2008

Q: I just bought a great new Dell Inspiron S531running Windows Vista and I love it. My issue is that I will be traveling around the country for a few months and still need to be able to update my blog. Bringing my desktop computer into Starbucks is not possible but at the same time since my desktop is so new I do not want to spend the money on getting a laptop. What other alternatives are there out there for us bloggers to be able to post while on the road?

A: I think that the real solution for you is a smart phone and we did a recent answer titled Handheld Or Smart Phone With Internet Browsing Ability that you will want to read after reading this. The reason it is not a complete answer to your question is that we were looking for solutions related to browsing internet not doing a lot of typing. Read the rest of this entry »
