It's time to think about replacing my Dell Axim X51V, the second PDA which I had to retire due to a bad digitizer.
I am checking ebay, the best thing I am finding is an HTC Diamond. I consistently am seeing the Sprint version selling for around $100, or $150 with a charging dock. I think people hate Sprint so much it brings the price downl. I don't intend to use it as a phone. I have a Net10 phone for voice ($100 every 180 days and more talking minutes than I need.) and there is no data that is so urgent to me that it justifies paying $60/month for a data plan. A daily sync gives me more data than I can possibly read or play, and I am usually not that far from a PC anyway. And I like the feature set of the HTC Diamond, and I plan to sync over USB or the charging dock if that's possible.
Since I don't plan on using the phone, is there another "Windows Mobile device in $100-150 range on ebay" anyone would care to recommend, with or without a phone built in?
By the way, I have had horrible luck with the digitizers going bad on both the PDAs I have had, Tungsten T3 and Dell Axim X51v, any hints at picking something where the digitizer may last longer are welcome, I wasn't very good at replacing the digitizer in my T3 and don't want to try again with my Axim (which also seems to have some power issues).
GPS doesn't matter so much, but I am assuming I could use it for something even without a data plan (maybe a pedometer?) - correct me if I am wrong.
