Ruffnekk: I'm using an old Orange SPV M500 with Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition.
Thanks for the reply! That all looks good but for the battery life (I'd forget to recharge it). So, you take a charger along with you if on a trip? How long to bring it back from the dead? Is the data still there when you revive it?
tsaint: The th55 is a joy to use
Thank you, too! Looks as if you've travelled the road I'm about to walk. I refer to a Palm on average about every three days. I know that's not often, but when I need it, I need
If I did this with the th55, and simply looked up, say three contacts and the calendar, what would be your guess about time between recharging?
That the th55 is out of production might be both good and bad. Bad because I can't walk into a store and pick one up. Good because I may find one on eBay or some such.
rjbull: does it have non-volatile memory? If your battery goes flat, do you lose everything?
Oh, thank you, very
good point! It's amazing how blinkered I can be. I haven't thought about that at all. I just made the tacit asumption that everything works as the Palm does. With the Palm, I can't get any data until I replace the batteries and sync with data elsewhere. However, if I see that power levels are low, I *can* do something about that no matter where I am.
So, a unit with non-vol memory would give me access to 'lost' data if, say, I returned to my hotel room and recharged the device? If so, I guess that makes recharging time--from dead to minimal functionality--a big factor in purchase decisions.
Boy, this is a great way to get information, thank you all. And thanks for further anticipated responses!
to be able to recharge a device on a daily basis, but I forget.
The reason I have several of them is that they're scattered around (one in each briefcase, one in each jacket, one in each car...) to save me from my forgetful self.
I can see I'm going to have to modify my behaviour with repect to that.
