Post Zire 72s or Zire 73?

Hi,

I want to buy a new Palm. I was reading posts on various PDA sites in the last two months. It seems to me that the best and bug-free Palm is the Zire 72s (According to my needs... Need voice recorder, but not WiFi).

My question is, should I wait for the new Zire, or buy a Zire 72s?

The problem is its small screen size compared to others. It would be nice to have a larger screen. But in some posts it is mentioned that the screen of LD is not so good. As opposed to this, all the reviews I read says that Zire 72 has a very nice screen.

If the new Zire will have a larger screen same as the LD screen, it could be a deal-breaker in my opinion. Do you think that Palm may use a better screen in new models? What is 1SRC members' advice to me?

Get it.
If it is considered good, go for it. You never know what Crap PalmOne does next!
BTW, ever thought about ebay? Take good care of the unit(hardcase, screen protector,..) and you may get a nice price for it in a few months!

@Muco:

I just bought a Palm Zire 72s lastweek, it's my first PDA, and I absolutely LOVE it! The digital camera on it could be better, however it does get the job done.

As for a new model, don't hold your breath on it. There has been no mention of the new model yet, and no specifications either.

As someone has mentioned, how long are you willing to wait? Previous times, Palm has released new devices in spring and fall but that's never confirmed. There's been rumors of a Zire 73 but nothing concrete. If you like the Zire 72, by all means get it. They currently come bundled with a Wi-Fi card or a GPS navigation kit and you may get a good deal. But of course, back to school usually has special deals so you may want to wait and see.

I got my Zire 71 in 2003 with a special back to school package which included some software and Docs To Go.

i dont think it is likely that theree is a zire 73 around the corner this fall since i think palms plan is to make the zire 72 cheaper. they are not likely to update since it has great features already

Hi,
please dont tell this to me. I had a IIIc(3 exchanged, didnt weork, came back damaged)
m505(screen bonkers, forced upgrade)
TT(killed all my headsets, didnt sit in cradle)
TT3(4th repair due to screen buzz, non working voice recorder...)
I also like the OS,l but Palm(One)s stuff quality sucks if you ask me.

Tam Hanna,

I really do get it and I apologize to you for the same. I really feel bad you have had multiple bad experience with palm units. If I were you, I would obviously think the same way but anywayz Im haapy with all my units and not a single repair /its only a buzzing sound I get on the T3 when I open it but I can still manage with that

Most of the shops in Canada (Bureau en Gros, Future Shop, Cosco ect...) have them bundled with a Wi-Fi Card. The GPS one has been around for a long time now..if I have a good memory, it was at the time when palm was trying to fix the blue paint that was peeling off...(really sad) then later came the 72s

My suggestion would be to just get a z72/s, as i haven't even heard of fake rumors for a z73. If need be, try selling your z72 off ebay. If you're not comfy with ebay, I'm sure it's still not likely that a z73 or any other Palm will be out anytime soon.

Wouldn't it make more sense to come out with a supposed z73 SO that the z72 can go cheaper? or do u mean the z72 cheaper with the z72s alr out?

At any rate, Palm can go short on some models like the T|T and really milk other ones. The T|C is still in sale for crying out loud!
