Pretty much a good-looking but useless deadweight, I would say.These days, the same can be said for mobile phones that aren't supported by a strong apps ecosystem.

Before there was the iPhone or iPad, there was the Palm.Back in 1998, Palm was the Apple of its days.
In our association we operate as a consortium, like the open source consortium. They want to promote open source and Linux. But if you begin from the PC you are afraid of Microsoft. They try to go to the smart phone or PDA to start again.
The business-oriented Asus P565 uses an 800MHz processor, although UK availability for the Windows Mobile 6.1 handset is not yet a certainty
The iPhone may have hit the trifecta with Microsoft Exchange support (take that RIM!), the new SDK, and now the probable June arrival of a native JVM. These add up to an enterprise-ready mobile endpoint that ushers the iPhone from a smart phone/PDA/browser into the first (but not last) true mobile Internet device (MID) for fun and work.
It is quite rare to find a dedicated PDA without phone functionality today, but it looks like HP is now shipping their iPAQ 210 Enterprise Handheld. This is quite a powerful PDA with a 624MHz processor, 256MB ROM, 128MB RAM, integrated Compact Flash and integrated Secure Digital slots, 4 inch VGA (480x640 pixels) display, integrated WiFi and integrated Bluetooth radios. Actually, the Dell Axim X51v I have from a couple years ago has just about the same specs, the display is 3.7 inches instead of 4 inches. However, you can no longer find the Axim X51v or HP hx4700 so this new HP is really your only choice for a high-end stand alone PDA.
In less than three hours from now, I will be live-blogging Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer's keynoter from the CTIA show in San Francisco.It appears so much more than likely that Ballmer will talk about new functionality that will enable users to sign up for a Live ID from their Windows Mobile-running Nokia PDA or mobile phone.
The prime minister wants more IT in the fight against crime. Police and thieves alike may find things not going quite to plan
The updated range, intended to attract business users, features two 3G smartphones, a GPS device and two standalone PDAs
It seems the rumors of HP's full re-entry into the Windows Mobile and Windows CE market were spot on. There have been a couple of HP iPAQ Communicators released since the last incredible HP x4700 PDA, but they didn't seem to do very well and never lasted that long in the market. I recommend you check out MobilitySite's post that links to all of the specs and a photo of each of the new 5 series announced last night in New York.
An HP Jornada 548 was my first Pocket PC back in 2001 and then for the next couple of years I primarily stuck with the HP line (568, 4340, 1940, etc) and was very happy with the HP Jornada and iPAQ models. HP has been quite silent in the Windows Mobile world for a couple of years, but a new post at Unwired View reveals rumors of 5 new Windows Mobile devices from HP. There are Phone Edition, Smartphone, and standalone PDA models in the collection. I was really surprised to see a non-phone model since it has been quite some time since we have seen a non-Palm PDA.
Hewlett-Packard's new "touch screen" tablet PC is ideal for small business users, as well as consumers, one of its creators has claimed.While touted as a consumer entertainment notebook at its launch last week in South Korea, the Pavilion tx1000 (pictured right) still delivers the tablet functionality that SMB's required.
The Palm OS has officially ceased to be, giving way to Access Linux Platform. But analysts say the platform's future is unpredictable
Analysts call for more enterprise-grade voice-centric devices, as the distinction between PDAs and smartphones becomes blurred
From its large onboard memory and SD card slot to the implementation of a 3.5mm audio jack and scroll wheel, the iPaq rx4540 combines a well-thought-out feature set with a compact design to appeal to users who plan to use their handhelds for mobile entertainment.
A feature-packed smartphone that's well-suited to business users, but it lacks the style and design-prowess of the BlackBerry.
The BlackBerry for non-corporate users who require extensive multimedia capabilities, in addition to push-e-mail.

Story of why one customer migrated fromExchange to Domino....The first step was upgrading Chick'se-mail system and consolidating its Compaq servers running Microsoft software."We were on Microsoft Exchangeand having multiple problems with that," Diebold said. "They[CCS] came to us and said, 'Now you have AS400, and [IBM Lotus] Dominois native on the 400.' They came with the recommendation to convert usto Lotus."CCS replaced Chick's system with anIBM iSeries system running IBM Lotus Notes and Domino. "We wanted less paper in the officeand a more streamlined workflow that Domino would allow us to do when wegot the resources and the time to implement those things," Dieboldsaid.Link: CRN:Demand Generator: Mitchell Kleinman, CCS Technology Solutions; The Client:Chick's Sporting Goods >
