I have a Palm IIIx - 4Mb of memory which is only 1/2 full after a
year. I use it mainly for the diary and phone book. I have bought
a utility which allows me to sync my Palm phone book with my mobile
phone (Siemens S25) via IR - very useful. I can also use my phone as
a modem (again via IR) so I can download my email, telnet and surf
the web - but I don't much 'cos I'm not away from my desktop much
and 9600bps is crap after using anything higher. But you can get a
add-on modem to plug into a standard phone-line at about 28Kbps.
I haven't programmed mine, but you can get a PalmOS dev kit and can
put a JVM on it, so if you need programming power on the move, it
could be worth a look, although some of the Windows CE stuff might
fit your purposes better, if that's your interest.
All in all, I'd pay £200 again just for the address book and diary
with syncing to my phone.
