    The Z22 is one of two fall releases for Palm, and a new attack on the entry-level PDA segment. The Palm Z22 isn't fighting for the current PDA user base much at all, but instead is targeting the huge paper-planner market. These buyers have avoided PDAs for fear that they're too hard to use. The Z22 promises to be easy to use and at an MSRP of $99, it offers a color screen in a PDA that's easy on the budget.

    Wow... You covered all the basics of a Z22 and economical statis... But you failed to point out that Z22 is also good for reading books, you can download free books and ebook manager off sites like www.manybooks.net and www.palm.com

    Where are free ebooks on palm.co? I can't seem to find them there. Are there other free ebooks aside from manybooks.net?

    Probably it is long gone, free ebooks at Palm.

    You can get many ebooks for free, but it is depends on what program are you using to read the ebooks. For example, this one.

    Of course, you can make your own book by just converting to w/e program file type is using.

    So far introducing my wife to the wonderful world of PDA's via the Z22 has gone well. She is a "late adopter" and longtime fan of paper-bound organizers. The only klinker to date has been the protective filament for the screen that came as part of the Z22 package. It makes using the stylus a drag--literally. Don't bother putting it on the screen. Also, the CD based tutorial is not as informative and slick as I would expect from Palm after all its years of marketing, selling and supporting its products. Stay tuned for further updates on the results of introducing a novice to the Z22.

    Yes, I'm curious as well. What software did you use to enhance your Z22 experience?
