A few years ago I bought an IPAQ 3360. I used it for a week to show off to friends. I struggled to find a use for it the next week. There-after it sat in a box until the unreplacable li-ion battery  died. And, yes, I know you can replace them if you take the time to do it. But they aren't designed to be replaced is my point. Quit nit-picking! Oh, wait, nobody said that yet ;p.

Here's a link to a review of the QTEK 9100 (it's in italian, but the are lots of photos and the tech specs & graphs are universal:

Windows Mobile 5, USB, BlueTooth, WiFi, etc. etc. I have used a bit one at work and it seems a very nice unit. The retractable keyboard is very handy, even using it as a phone (for SMS).

Bye!

I have that same phone, except it's the T-mobile MDA in the USA.  If you can deal with the negatives, like being a bit bulky for a phone, having a low maximum volume on the handset and getting terrible reception inside most office buildings (I work in & out of many office buildings all day) and I am constantly dropping signals, also going into roaming areas you may not even find a signal in areas that need a medium to strong antenna to get signal.  If you can deal with those, this is a marvelous phone.  It's even overclockable and hackable to wirelessG, even though the specs don't say it.  And many other hacks and things, it's great for notes, scheduling, surfing when you need quick info like: weather, traffic, gas prices, phone numbers, etc...  I will elaborate more later, but I gotta go to work now :)

I'm not sure if you already know about this, because it might be in the manual of your qtek, but it wasn't in my father's qtek manual.
You can put it on speaker by pressing the "call" button, and keeping it pressed.

(probably it's stupid to tell you this, but i read the whole manual of the qtek 2020i, and this was not mentioned anywhere)

We (my girlfriend and I) just bought 2 Palm Zire 31 I am searching for freeware for it now.
Why not post what sort of software you're looking for? (eg, doc reader, screenshot capture, shopping list, etc etc)

Tetris Games I Love.

It was funny my Girlfriend said this:
I was telling her I love freeware and said, "I just cant see paying for something I can get for free." She exclaimed "is that what you say too all your girlfriends." ;D ;D ;D ;D

If anyone is looking for a cheap, basic PDA, CompUSA is running a special on the Palm Z22 (refurb) - $65 plus shipping:

     http://www.compusa.com/products/product_info.asp?&ref=cj&pfp=cj&product_code=338589

One caveat - it's a refurbished unit, so CompUSA isn't taking returns.

Anyone have seen / used the Fujitsu Siemens Loox N500 series?

Link

It's a Win Mobile 2005 PDA, with an integrated GPS (with internal antenna).
I was thinking about a PDA (to experiment with) and a navigator for some times, and this seems a nice combo!

Only reviews of Fujitsu Loox I've seen were for 420 and 610, date back to 2004, and were lukewarm.  UK Computer Shopper magazine often recommend Acer for a cheap Pocket PC, but it depends on how much you want the GPS.

Now I'm more inclined toward an ASUS Mypal 636N. Seems to have a much longer battery life, and included support for car mounting and car powersupply.

My 636N just arrived. Seems a nice toy!
The built-in GPS may sparks an idea or two! :D
