Okay
When you get rich and famous, though, get me one of those slick G4 phones, ok?

I feel so old fashioned - this is all I use. (though last years was better, it had Aragorn on the cover and always got lots of comments, this year I'm torn between sw and lotr...)

Datebooks!
I remember those! I still used mine until about a years agom, 3 years after I got my first iPAQ.
And I still take notes on my little notepads.

I also have some FOTR calendars and diaries/dayplanners.

Re: Advice
My vote goes to the HP (Please explain the context of me endorsing HP to anyone that asks)!

As far as current printers and PocketPC's go, HP has really been on the ball. I've had nothing but good experiences with mine, and it has proven itself to be versatile in the software department. Durable, user-friendly, effective, capable of using all kinds of media, easy-to-use WiFi, excellent MS Outlook integration...the only down-side would be the cost in my opinion, and possibly the < 1 business day battery life away from a powersource. But, if you can get past the cost as well as bring along an AC adapter, this is the one to go with.

Not that I'm any guru when it comes to tech items, but we used Blackberry at school for our email, and it was woefully unreliable and unsecure. HP gets my vote.

Gotcha
Roger that; thanks. BTW, is this a school you taught at or attended?

planning on doing much? ditch the blackberry.
So here's my take. Blackberries are insanely slick, for their one intended purpose. But they're really more like pagers than "a little thing sitting on the net". This means that if you're going to be writing some code or installing other software on the device it's either going to be difficult or suck, depending on exactly what. (SSH or IRC on a Blackberry, I'm told, involves sacrifices to the dark gods- the ones who do Morris Dancing and stuff..)

So, my vote goes for "something other than the blackberry".

Sounds like good advice
It's pretty much unanimously in favor of the iPAQ, and I like my current one (it's just too old, at 32Mb RAM / 200MHz Intel StrongARM, with no built-in WiFi).

I'm about made up my mind, too. I'd just like GSM (quad band) and G3 capability if possible.

Thanks again,
Banazir
