Product Description

Product Description

Small Wonder. Your planner, journal, sticky notes and calendar all in one place.


If you're still using a paper planner, maybe it's time to catch up with technology and upgrade to the affordable and easy-to-use Palm Z22 handheld. It enables you to keep your entire day-to-day schedule and contact information at hand and in your pocket--no more flipping through multiple pages, looking for scraps of paper or keeping track of to-do lists. And you won't have to enter the same thing twice--once on the computer and once in your planner, as you can easily make updates on your computer and synchronize data to the Palm Z22 in just a minute or two.

This handheld features a 32 MB of flash memory (20 MB accessible for file and software storage), Palm OS 5.4 (Garnet), a fast 200 MHz ARM-based processor, and an internal rechargeable battery (that can be charged via the included AC adapter or via the USB cable connected to your PC).

Weighing just over 3 ounces and about the same size as a deck of playing cards, the Palm Z22 is compact and stylish with a white front and translucent blue backing. Small enough to fit into any purse, backpack or back pocket, it boasts a bright, 160 x 160-pixel color touchscreen display, which provides easy readability of names, addresses, and appointments. You can even color-code appointments for improved organization, and view and carry pictures of friends and family wherever you go.

Operating System and Software
The installed Palm OS 5.4 uses the intuitive and easy-to-learn Graffiti 2 writing software to input data into the handheld (as well as an on-screen keyboard). Windows users can synchronize their calendar, contacts, tasks, and notes with Microsoft Outlook. The Palm OS features the following organizer applications:

  • Contacts: Lets you store several addresses for each contact, and with new fields for more phone numbers, multiple e-mail addresses, instant messenger IDs, and Web sites.
  • Calendar: Use the new Agenda view to see upcoming calendar events, tasks due, and important e-mail, and color-code your events to provide an easy way to reference your calendar in the Agenda, Day, Week, and Month views. Take more notes, or synchronize more details from your desktop, in the larger Memos and Notes fields.
  • Tasks: Use tasks with alarms and repeating tasks to set reminders for important commients.
It also includes AddIt, a program that includes a variety of applications such as CheckSplit, Chess, Carb Counter and Solitaire. The bonus software CD-ROM has an eBook reader with three books and a dictionary, the powerOne Calculator (perfect for basic and advanced mathematics), and SplashShopper (a helpful shopping list application).

The Palm Z22 is compatible with PCs running Windows Windows 2000 (SP4) and XP (Outlook synchronization requires MS Outlook 2000, 2002, or 2003; sold separately), and with Macs running Mac OS 10.2.8 to 10.4.

What's in the Box
Palm Z22 handheld, USB sync cable, power adapter, 3-step setup poster, Graffiti 2 sticker, Software Install CD-ROM with Palm Desktop, Tutorial, Getting Started Guide, User Guide, and bonus software.

I've been using the z22 for a few days and have found it to be a great product for anyone not concerned with wireless, a large handheld display screen or extended memory. I've used palms for several years and keep a lot of technical notes in the Palm memo app for use when I'm in remote locations doing system adminstration work. My previous palm was a III xe - it was trailing edge technology but very durable and useful as long as I could find a synching machine that still had a serial connection.

The install for the z22 was easy and worked flawlessly. I tried the install via the usb port on Macintosh System X and Windows XP formats. The installation program pulled all my old palm info into the Z22; memos, contacts, calendar and task functions were all maintained in the upgrade. Some of the older applications were not compatible with the Palm 5 OS on the z22. Most of the problems apps were old games that I was not that concerned about.

For under $100 dollars, I'm very impressed with the following;

1) colors are bright and reading the screen is easy in light or dark settings.

2) I currently have 17.5 mbytes memory left on the z22 after the upgrade. In the PC world, this is very little memory, but for a Palm environment this is a lot of entries. If I was concerned about using mp3's, video, doc, or Excel files on a palm format, I would consider another device.

3) The battery lasts a long time. I once used a Palm M515 color palm and it needed recharged a lot more than the Z22 does. The advertised time of 8 hours between charges is probably accurate.

4) The size and weight of this device is very light - it is not much bigger than my pager and fits very comfortably in a pocket.

After 10 years Palm have finally returned to their roots and released

a PDA. Not a wannabe phone/walkman/portable dvd/game console/wireless

web browser/photo album/book. It's an actual, honest to God, Personal

Digital Assistant. Yes, it can do some of those other things too, but

I'm not having to pay for expensive features like bluetooth and hifi

quality audio.

The Z22 is being marketed as an entry level PDA. But that's wrong. I

am a long time PDA user who has owned, among other devices, a Palm

Pilot Professional, an m505, a Zire 71 and a Tungsten T3. But this is

my favourite device of all. For a start it's the best looking PDA ever

sold. Palm must have taken a leaf out of Apple's book. When I look at

my Z22 I think it could have dropped out of the clean futuristic sets

of movie like 2001. This is the future that Stanley Kubrick promised

us and never arrived. But at least my Palm looks like it's from that

future. It's also light due to not being weighed down by a metal case

and a ton of hardware I don't want.

It does all the usual PDA stuff well: Calendar, Memos, Contacts and so

on. 32MB is completely adequate for these tasks, even if you decide

to add photos to your contact list. For these tasks the hardware is

completely up to the task.

I also use my Z22 for reading eBooks. It's great for this. 160x160 is

enough for completely clear text. Unfortunately I do miss one feature

of my T3 - the SD card slot. Without this I can't use my unabridged

Webster's dictionary that weighs in at 37MB.

I guess you can call me a gadget freak. I've got a drawer full of electronic gadgets and gone through numerous inventions of our modern world. I've owned and used three generations of iPods (mini, 4G, nano, and video iPod), countless cell phones (from TDMA times to GSM), notebooks and computers, and most importantly (and the reason we're here today), PDA's.

This isn't my first time with a personal digital assistant. My first foray with PDA's was a PalmOne Treo 600, then Motorola MPx200; after the Treo died and MPx200 bored, I went to a Palm TX, then SMT5600; after those I transitioned into a HP iPaq RX1955, and finally I just had to do it and get back to the Z22.

If you take the time to read reviews and consider your purchase choices before you click the checkout button, you have probably thought about getting a Windows Mobile device, and trust me, I've been down that route (as you can see from the boring list above).

If you did think about Windows Mobile, then maybe this is the device for you (yes, I'm serious).

You can never have too many electronics devices, however, you only have two hands, two ears, two eyes and a brain. Sure, you can have one device that does it all, or multiple devices that do things well. It's your choice, but now if you take a moment and look around you - your cell phone probably plays MP3's; your MP3 player probably has calendar functions on it; your laptop does everything you need including internet; oh wait your phone also does internet AND play mp3's AND videos; d'oh, your PSP plays better quality videos, etc...nowadays the rage is toward convergence devices, yet eventually you'll find yourself, out of all your gadgets and what-not, leaning toward just one thing...

Then why did you waste money on everything else?
