View Full Version : So, knowing all there is to know, do you get one?

I know I am still going to be an early adapter- even though i have a few complaints, but... Anyway, are you still going to get it?
(Note, if you arent, just say nope, or something... We dont need to have the bashing of the unit for no reason, or as to why your PDA is already better... If you are happy, I am glad for you- so dont drag me down.)

Already ordered early this morning. I do have to admit that I have my own budget for this type of thing through work, so it's easy for me to say "yes". I've tried just about every PDA out there, and I am really looking forward to the Lifedrive...if nothing else, then just for something different.

Yeah, but only because my NX-80 died...

Almost certainly. Is it perfect for my needs? No. But neither is any other PDA out there. This one just comes a lot closer than most.

I'll stick with my UX50 for a while still. I hope they keep making and improving PDAs like this though. When I'm in the market for a new PDA, I'll be very tempted by it.

I would hold off for a few more months and wait how the PPC side would retaliate about Palm's LifeDrive. They might come-up with a better use of an internal drive, especially battery handling.

I'll try to hold off for a little while.
I'd jump at a device that was identical except for having less storage, but in solid state memory, along with the better battery performance, speed, and lower cost that should come along with that.

no because it lacks a camera, sony spoiled me with cameras on every pda
05-18-2005, 09:28 PM
Nope. Got my Zodiac - ultimate PDA for me. :D
05-18-2005, 09:48 PM
No. I have my T5 and the Wi-Fi card. I see no reason to change.
05-18-2005, 09:54 PM
I probably will. My NX70 is getting a little rough around the edges and I don't want a PPC.
I will miss the camera, but I didn't really use it that much. I have one on my phone and the only pictures I've taken with it are of the inside of my pocket (from sitting on the buttons) :rolleyes: I have a nice little digital camera that takes 5 megapixel images if I need them.
Also, I use mine a lot for business, and there are some companies that have issues with cameras on phones and PDAs for security reasons.
It will be interesting to hear some reports from the first people that get them.

Nope. I'll stick with my iPAQ for now. Besides, I think it is foolish to rush out and purchase a new PalmOne device before reading what the first wave of owners have to say. PalmOne has a bad habit of turning out buggie units in the initial release. I would suggest waiting until any issues that might crop up are resolved. I got burned on the m505 and the Tungsten T3, so now I wait several weeks before deciding.
BTW: I looked at a lot of reviews today and in every case the images looked as though the LD screen is not very bright and the colors seemed washed out. Not what I would expect for a multimedia device. Plus all the reviewers said it was slower than the T5 due to the microdrive.

No. There needs to be more focus on solid-state memory (I suppose the focus should be on driving its prices down).

I guess my UX and my VZ are far enough now...
I was interested at first, but the technical solutions used are cooling me down...
I guess I'll look the HTC Universal...
Nope, still jonesing over my T3 with 1GB SD card. I wish P1 still made em'
