This is always a difficult question to ask because there really is no definitive answer since the choices mostly depend upon individual needs. I'm sort of looking at buying a handheld. I suppose the best way to ask for a recommendation is to tell you what I am looking to do with it.... 1. Full color display - nice crisp, brilliant images. 2. Low-cost email retrieval service and the ease of using keys to compose and reply to email. 3. Scheduling, appointments, address and phone book. 4. Storing information (such as DVD collections) 5. Easy file transfer between desktop XP computer and handheld. 6. Able to download news and such from serves like AVANTGO. 7. A good amount of memory and expandability. The other big question is operating system. I have had an old B&W Handspring Visor with PALM OS and it was pretty easy to use. However, I am intrigued by the WINDOWS CE interface that looks more like my desktop OS. Which operating system is the better of the two? I'm not necessarily looking for something cheap. I know the most expensive handhelds are in the $600 range. I'll go as high as I need to go pricewise, but I am interested to know which of the MANY handhelds out there get the best ratings from members of this forum? Arguments on the OS are also welcome. Thus far, the HP IPAQ 5450 seems to be the most appealing of all the PDA's I have looked at this morning, though at a pricetag of $560-$700 I wonder if this would be overkill. I like the fact that it has WiFi capability to synch to my desktop via my wireless router.
