I bought the Toshiba e800. The version that comes into the UK has built in WiFi and you fit a Bluetooth CF card if you want Bluetooth. I have just had a week's holiday in Slovenia and I used the Tosh and my Nokia 6310 running with GPRS to monitor my e:mail. I have a mail reader called nPOPw which is ideal. I have a prog called Stock Manager that links into Yahoo Finance and it will give you 20 minute delay prices from almost any stock exchange in the world. Why did I choose the Tosh? Because at the time it was almost the only machine offering VGA as an alternative definition - that is 640 by 480. In fact I hardly use the VGA yet as most progs look too small on it - but slowly they are being re-written. Battery life for the standard battery is pretty dire. It barely lasts a weekend of modest use. But there is a larger battery and that survived my week of holiday with no need to re-charge. My mainstay for info was the Brighthand forum which has a URL based on http://discussion.brighthand.com/ If you want anymore from me just ask. I lurk daily. Tp

I use an IPAQ H5550 which is very good. It has WiFi, Bluetooth, 128Mb RAM and fingerprint security which works well. Also synchronises seamlessly with Outlook. If you buy any PC 2003 device make sure that you install any updates as soon as you get it. I updated my O/S and had to reinstall all programs.

as this popped up to the top, just wanted to mention the Treo 600. if you need a phone plus palm-based pda, it's glorious. full keyboard that's surprisingly easy to get used to, good size, nice screen, decent camera (in good light), wonderful feel and great applications. there's rumours of a successor coming in the fall, with an improved screen and integrated bluetooth and possibly more memory, but i've had my 600 for about 6 months and love it :) DavidW

Publisher did you get a PDA...if so which one. Anyone have any exoerience with the Model - HEWLETT PACKARD IPAQ 4150 Pocket PC 2003 400 MHz Processor 64 Mb Memory SD Card Slot Bluetooth integrated WiFi integrated Colour Screen 240x320 Resolution USB Cradle Rechargeable Battery Seems to be the one that comes up the most for a budget of £200-300.

Update on two weeks use of Stock Manager is that I find it works very well. Any flaws solely relate the problem of dealing with the small screen - but as a way of keeping up-to-date with your investments (mine are entirely all NYSE and NADAQ at the moment - but all exchanges are covered) it works a treat. And there is a decent manual to aid the slow of mind. Tony London UK

Optimist, Glad you find it OK. I'd not give up my realtime feed, but as all my portfolio is currently in US stocks, and as ADVFN don't provide them in the monitor system for PDA's it seemed a very inexpensive solution. Tony

Thank for that link I have downloaded it and it seems to run well on my IPAQ. I will probably buy it but I don't think I will give up my realtime feed.

Has anyone tried Tiny Stocks? http://www.tinystocks.com/sm.html What appeals to me is the fact there is no need for any subs and, unlike ADVFN, you can create portfolios and get effectively live (OK 20 mins delay) of US stocks and other foreign ones. Any experiences? Tony London UK

Thanks for those phone suggestions. I'm feeling that what will suit me better is something like the Tosh 800 as it can then replace my Panny laptop for travel. It will be much heavier to carry around than the Rex - but I only ever put it in a jacket pocket. I like the idea of WiFi as I think that will become more and more useful. Amazing how the mind can change in such a little time. I know someone who bought a Blackberry to take to the West coast of the USA and found it did not work. As I said earlier if I am going to have a PDA that deals with the internet I do want one with the ability to use GRIC over a hotel bedroom phone and that means I must get a PDA with microsoft software I think. Monday will be shopping day - I am already spending too much time on this! Have a good weekend. Tony

what about the Blackberry 7230? I have one and love it. Battery lasts about a week and it can be charged from the usb cable which is used for syncronisation. Probably not the most fully functional PDA but better than the rex, big plus points are keyboard, screen, gprs push mail is delivered automaticaly, triband phone. Not so good points no bluetooth or infra red (but this helps the battery life), slightlyu big as a phone but still pretty smal for a pda, not as small as rex. Mine is from t-mobile but i think others have them now as well.

If you want to go down the phone route the Ericsson T68i is small and can handle contacts and appointments which can be synchronized with Outlook via bluetooth. It can also send and receive emails on your normal address. It has now been replaced by the T610 which I assume is at least as good. Neither have the browsing capability of the P900 though but they are half the size.

I only ever used a pda for diary and contacts. By getting a Sony Ericcson P800 (now replaced by the P900)I managed to dispense with the need for a pda altogether. Fair enough it's a bit big for a phone, but at least I now need carry only one piece of kit instead of two. If I am going to be away long enough I also only need carry one charger. It's more conveninent as I can dial out without needing to look up the number on the pda and dial it into my phone. I just look up the contact and press "send" Email, web browsing and loads of other stuff is standard and you can get readers for Word and Excel cheaply. I have also got the iTraffic Trafficmaster thingy installed, which is handy sometimes, and also my stockwatch for easy monitoring.

Overnight I have come up with another idea. I like the Rex because it is easy to carry on a day to day basis and secondly it runs on the same batteries for probably a year (so it is not going to die whilst I am on holiday). As I often travel overseas with a laptop to collect my e:mails and keep up to date with my share prices (ADVFN web site) etc I was wondering if I could get a PDA that would work sufficiently well to be able to replace the laptop. Then I would not need to worry about battery capacity as I'd be able to justify taking a charger with me (as the laptop would no longer be part of my luggage). Presumably most good PDA's have mail retrieval software and web browsers. I like the look of the Palm Tungsten T3 as it can work with a horizontal screen and that must help with web viewing. For dialling I'll be using hotel phone sockets. Presumably all PDA's have a way of taking a phone lead and plug. What about diallers? I often use a GRIC dialler which is a Windows based dialler. I think that some PDA's work with a variant of Windows and some have a different operating system. Yes? Should I thus concentrate on those with Windows as an operating system? So much to learn. But fun with so many people to pick ideas from. Rgds Tony London

Having had a look around I can't see anything else that matches the Rex for size. I'd not heard of it before, and it looks quite interesting. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/REX_6000 http://www.rex6000.org http://www.intel.com/support/peripherals/xc/pda/rex6000/faq.htm

zz That makes sense to me. The problem is that the manufacturers seem to be very reticent about sounding too optimistic. The mail order box shifters either don't know or are too frightened to quote a large figure. So I must rely on the real world (zzaxx99 for example) with first hand experience. I'll probably only use it for a few minutes a day at the most. Checking my diary, looking up a phone number, etc Tony
