    I am looking for a PDA that will allow me to check e-mail, including hotmail via Outlook everywhere that my cell phone works. For example in areas where there is no WiFi. I have been told there are no PDAs that will allow you to read hotmail, even if it is funneled through Outlook. I don't beleive this, is it true? Also, I have a plan with T-Mobil that will allow me to get data via GPRS which I beleive is in the same areas that their GSM is available. Does the Dell X30 support this? If not, any suggestions?

    The Treo650 and HP iPaq h6310 are your best bets and will do what you ask.

    I'm looking for a good PDA that runs Linux.
    I've been looking at Royal Lin@x one, but i cant find one for sale anywhere...(tried ebay, google, froogle, royal, and some other sites)
    If anyone has any suggestions (except for getting a MS OS PDA) I would really appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance,
    --Alex--

    I don't believe Royal ever made it to market with their Linux PDA. Your best bet is looking for Sharp Zaurus SL-6000s that are still available on clearence. Amazon had them for $400, which is a very good deal.

    Hello peoples, I wanted to share with everyone an accessory that I have come across to help protect everyones PDA. It is a stylish rubber adhesive that applies to the back of your PDA and prevents it from sliding around on the dash of your car or off your leg during a business meeting. Check out this web sit and see for yourself. Enjoy!
