My boss just purchased, tried out and promptly returned a Samsung
SPH-i500 Palm/PCS phone (from Sprint). It was quite a horror story
involving trying to hot-sync and getting fatal errors (on the palm) and
on the desktop (win2k), and finally the phone simply not working at all.
Verdict: too much time wasted already so back to the store it goes!
What this has made me wonder is, what is the state of PDA/Phone combo
devices? The i500 looked like it had real potential, nice size,
features, etc. I have to this point avoided PDAs because I want to keep
the number of gadgets hanging on my belt to a minimum (Batman factor). I
would consider "band-wagon-on-jumping" if there was a rock solid combo,
but this is an area I know nothing about. What experiences do you all
have (Larry, I know you are the PDA fiend)? Have you used PDA/Phones or
have you had better luck with separate devices? Any opinions on what is
better for gear heads versus simple non-techie folk?
