are the iPacs really the way to go? I'm getting someone one for xmas, but not really sure if this person is worth a grand to me...

I have a 1940, and it fucking rocks.

It's tiny, has a beautiful screen, is much faster than some old gen. iPaq's.

They're $399 at Future Shop.

I paid a considerable amount less, but I got a deal through my work. (Sorry, can't get any more ;) )

Even for $399, I would still consider it worth it. I'm sure Palm's are good products too, but using Windows Mobile for seamless sync'ing with my home and work computer is incredibly handy. It plays MP3's, has Bluetooth, does my laundry, etc.

no, thanks, but already I know what the best public display of affection is .... going ass-to-mouth on a crowded subway.

Basically Bluetooth is a method for 2 or more devices to talk to each other wirelessly. (It's not 'Wi-Fi' though)

So, that could be PC's, PDA's, cell phone, etc.

I've only used it once so far. A co-worker who also has a Bluetooth enabled iPaq can wirelessly beam me files from across the room. Very handy.

Another co-worker has a Bluetooth enabled cell-phone, which allowed him to beam his contact/phone number list to his iPaq. Cool.

I plan on buying a bluetooth receiver for my PC, which is a small USB device that will allow me to wirelessly sync my Outlook information, as well as have web/email access on my iPaq while I'm in the room. Extra cool.

Feel free to ask more questions if you've got em.

thanks Adam, I am sort of wondering whether it's not wiser to get a W-Fi ready one seeing as most places seem to be on track to get this technology now or fairly soon, even if half the places that have it don't work properly...

viewsonic v37 here, it's kickass. other then bluetooth, it mops up the ipaq's for several hundred less.

microsoft was giving them away earlier this year, everyone in my company got theirs free, i paid next to nothing for mine compared to what it's worth.

wifi is geeky, who the fuck really checks their email on a pda anyway?

I'm uber-geeky...I check my email on my phone.

Synching via 802.11b sure beats USB.

In retrospect, I would not recommend Toshiba line (I own the e310), and that appears to be the rest of the world's take. Also the Dell Axim is a poorly competitor. IPaq appear to be the way to go and they are usually the best pricepoint of the PDAs.

Look for some reviews online. Lots of info to go by.
