The visual and tactile exploration for selection of a PDA
caused this 4 oz. dynamo to shout 'yes, buy me'! It did not
come with colored case or screen , but hands on comparison
placed this model high on the scale for performance without
depleting ones funds. It feels comfortable in my rather small
hands and with a tap of the stylus programs appear surprisingly
fast. Software loaded without a hitch and holds its place
on my desktop. A few short hours of playing and reading were
all that was needed to begin.
It was incredibly easy to program a rather lengthy address list
that was kept on a small electronic organizer, 3 small Rolodex like
files and numerous pieces of paper along with a bulky daytimer.
The memo list is a bonus for individuals who simultaneously have
far too many fires in the bucket and activities to follow. All data
can be backed up with the touch of a button, no more lost files
due to battery malfunctions. For the first time…all of my addresses,
memo's, to do lists and complete calendar is in one place.
Three weeks after purchase, the Palm Vx was still running on the
first charge. Definitely a plus, since the household cannot seem
to keep ahead of the battery elves. The online super fix for the
software error loaded without difficulty. Pendragon forms matched
my expectations for seamless loading and linking to the desktops
Microsoft Access ready for action in a few short minutes with all
the necessary icons available on the Palm. I wanted to immediately
download some of the numerous shareware programs, but need to wait
until my first project application is produced. Meanwhile my mind
can plan for future uses in our nursing discipline.
The only negative is the somewhat poor illumination with use of
