Product Description

Amazon.com

At only 4.7 by 3.2 inches square and 0.4 inches thick, the Palm Vx handheld is truly pocket sized; however, this model sports a hefty 8 MB of RAM. The Palm Vx handheld also sports a sleek exterior that looks supercool--an intangible value to be sure, but one that's hard to argue with.

The Palm Vx handheld offers the same improvements to its screen that were made to the Palm IIIx. These updates since the Palm III handheld include a far sharper screen and contrast-variable backlighting, which makes the Palm Vx handheld much easier to use in low-light conditions. Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, which charge while the unit sits in its HotSync cradle, make battery life a nonissue.

You can synchronize Palm handhelds with your computer so that you can carry all your appointments, notes, contacts, and e-mail with you. The simple one-touch interface makes sense to new and seasoned computer users alike. For owners that prefer Microsoft Outlook to keep tabs on folks for business and pleasure, rest easy. With the simple installation procedure, and Outlook support out of the box, you can transfer the data you have in Outlook, or start fresh with the Palm Desktop software. In addition, there are thousands of applications for the Palm operating system available on the Internet that make your Palm handheld work as everything from a universal remote to a digital book and restaurant guide.

We had no trouble setting up the device, synching with our PC-based Netscape e-mail, using the Graffiti character-recognition software, or working with the address book, date book, memo writer, to-do list, and all the other applications that put the Palm OS on the map. All in all, this is a great upgrade to an already strong product. If this is your first Palm, it's a great way to start.

Pros:

  • Palm OS interface is simple to use
  • Easy to install and set up
  • Uses rechargeable batteries
  • Sleek, solid design can take some punishment
Cons:
  • Not expandable (has a closed case)
  • Case cover opens too easily

As for the Palm handheld itself it is very easy to use.
F. A. Soares
Thought it was a neat device but, did not want to buy one for myself at the time; thinking that my laptop was good enough for what I need to do.
Deepak Krishnankutty
Now I use my Palm for appointment and birthday reminders, my address book which is categorized(!), I have a to-do list, and general notes.

The time arrived for me to upgrade from my trusty old Palm V. I was running short on memory, so that left the Palm IIIc, Vx and Jornada 540 for consideration.
I tried the IIIc for a month. Found the color screen a pleasure to work with. There are not that many 3rd party apps in color yet, but that appears to be changing fast. I liked the TinySheet Excel compatible spreadsheet in color. The black on white screen is very readable for e-books. Battery life was acceptable. On a 3 week business trip I had to recharge it only once. The downside for me is size, the comfort factor. You can NOT comfortably carry a Palm in a shirt pocket. I carry it in my pants pocket, with the V I would forget I had it until I needed it. The IIIc, it was just always 'there'. The only other gripe I have is that it's almost impossible to read the screen outside. Something I took for granted on the monochrome V. Bright daylight however fully washes out color screens. I REALLY like the small updates to the new PalmOS. Eg. the little shortcut bar that appears at the bottom of the screen for menu shortcuts is an excellent innovation. It makes cutting and pasting as fast as with the PC using the keyboard.
I used the Jornada for 2 weeks before I returned it. As my expectations weren't that high from my previous exposure to the platform I can't say that I was dissappointed. However, I still don't think MS is up to par. On the balance still more 'clicks' are needed than on a Palm. I couldn't find those easy to use 3rd party freeware apps such as the NY crossstreet finder, on PocketPC. On face value I liked Excel, but I found it's small differences with the PC version annoying. Knowing one, I made assumption about the other that didn't always pan out. The high resolution of the screen is nice.

About a month ago, I started looking at Palms and was undecided as to whether I should get the beefier IIIx or the elegant V (the Windows CE handhelds were not even in the running). The Palm V was going to be the winner because of the sleek looks. I wanted the Vx, but I didn't think Circuit City carried it (I work at Circuit City and wanted that discount, ya know?). When I went in to purchase the Palm V, lo and behold, they had the Palm Vx for sale also. I special ordered it and had to wait about 10 days for it, but it was worth the wait. Please don't be jealous, I got it for $375 including tax.
I've had the Palm Vx for about a couple weeks now and I don't know how I did without it. I know everyone says that, but it is so handy. It's light and compact so I can carry it with me and I always know what I need to do that day. The 8 mb Ram is invaluable. I've already used over 3 mb. I've loaded books, some games, algebraic calculators, German translators, Pocket Quicken, and a whole lot more. $449 might be steep for most, but for the peace of mind in knowing that this PDA will be useful for AT LEAST 4-5 years, (you can't say that about computers now) you really can't beat it. I know I PROBABLY won't need any more RAM, the looks of this machine is very elegant, it fits comfortably in my hand (I'm female), and you get that "OOOOh, cool" look also, at least that's what my boyfriend said when he took his to work. Yeah, once he found out I was getting one, he had to have one also, said something about boys and their toys, and he showed his friends at work his new toy, of course.
Anyways, if you have the money, get one. It's got the wow factor, it's light, compact, comfortable, easy to use, and you will use it because it IS easy to use and carry.

To be honest, for an average-income employee, this sucker causes an arm and a leg, and it is a bit hard to justify the purchase ... at first. I did a lot of research, and I wanted to buy a useful and powerful PDA that I would be able to use constantly and consistently. I am aware of products like Palm IIIx, Palm V, Handspring Visor, or even Casio Cassiopeia. Based on the speed, memory, design, size, weight, software expandability, reputation, and usability, I have decided Palm Vx is the choice for me. If I had to choose between IIIx or V, I would have picked IIIx, simply because 2MB of RAM is just too little. Vx encapsulates the fortes of V and IIIx, and then some (e.g. Faster processor - 20 vs 16, more memory - 8MB vs 4MB vs 2MB.) Window CE PDAs are handheld computers, not pocket-size organizers which you can easily fit it in your shirts', jackets' or trousers' pockets. It tries to do too much. If I want to play with Windows, I have my home PC, work PC, and my laptop available. Of course, if you like to use Excel and Words on a device so small that looking at a file which has more than 5 columns will give you a excruciating headache, though in color, sure, get the Casio Cassiopeia.
I just attended a business Christmas party, and I carried my brand-new Palm Vx with me so I could enter all these new acquaintances' contact information and filed them probably in seconds instead of writing it onto a napkin. I looked trendy and professional. Can't beat that! The sleek style would have been a bit more difficult to accomplish with larger size PDAs. (You don't know the difference 2 ounces can make to the overall design of your evening-wear until you tried it.)
Palm Vx has everything I need.
