uses the Palm VII, Pam's Christmas present is a Palm IIIc with a great color screen.
Here are 3 cool Palms:
great way to get organized. Versatile. Compact. The Palm
m100 is similar to original Palm III but has a sleeker appearance.
love my Palm
IIIxe. It's the only thing that keeps me from buying a notebook. It does
everything I need - I can keep up with E-mail with an optional modem, keep track
of all appointments, all contacts -- and keep hundreds of memos neat and organized
- and thousands of 3rd party software solutions.
IIIxe is more than an organizer - it's a complete handheld computing platform.
fun! I've owned my color
Palm for several months, and had intensive experience with several Palms.
IIIc is the most fun Palm out there.
Having color is great! Screen brightness is fantastic. 8 megs of RAM gives
you plenty of room for programs and data. I have over 100 programs and utilities
loaded and still have about 1.2 megs left.
