Okay, I'm going to switch my cell phone service in about a week and half. I was originally going to get just a cell phone. Then I realized that my old Handspring organizer has been sitting on my desk for almost a year now. It's an old black and white (or green) screen that I keep addresses and directions in as well as birthdays.
I can't remember ever synching it up to this laptop.
But I do like having the ability to read .pdf files "on the fly". A lot of my gluten-free guides I have on my laptop saved at .pdf files. But I sure as heck am not going to whip out the old laptop in a grocery store to look something up. I could print them out, but some of these have like 55 pages - way too many to keep lying around.
My proposed solution: an all-in-one unit. I'm seriously drooling over the Palm Treo 650.
With the small keyboard in it, I might actually use the IM feature more. I'm not going to download pictures or ringtones (at their prices, I'd rather put files from my laptop on the phone).
Is it cost going to be worth it? Mind you, if I get a plain Jane phone, I'll probably purchase a new Palm pilot to view these .pdf files. I have room in my purse for both pieces of hardware, so that's not the issue.
The inner geek in me is saying "go with Treo". I think it'll be worth the costs, but I haven't crunched the numbers to be sure.
