Product Description

The Palm IIIxe handheld builds on earlier Palm III models by offering more memory and more options. Its 8 MB of RAM (four times the memory of the popular Palm IIIe) and 2 MB of flash ROM keep track of all your appointments, memos, to-do items, expense items, and e-mail, plus you can add thousands of third-party applications. Although the Palm IIIe and IIIx models have ample memory for many users, the Palm IIIxe better supports users who rely upon their organizer for data-heavy operations.

The Palm IIIxe is more powerful than its predecessors, but it retains all of the Palm IIIx's and IIIe's convenience features. It measures a mere 4.7 by 3.2 by 0.7 inches and weighs 6 ounces. Backing up and exchanging information with desktop PCs and popular PIMs requires just a touch of a button on the included HotSync cradle. The infrared port allows you to instantly beam business card information, phone lists, data, and applications to other infrared-equipped devices. It also features a sharp backlit LCD screen, legible in both dim and bright light.

The contents of the Palm IIIxe box include the Palm IIIxe handheld, a CD-ROM with an extensive assortment of Palm Desktop software applications, two AAA batteries, a DB-25 adapter, a HotSync cradle, a manual, and a Getting Started quick guide. You may further customize your Palm IIIxe organizer with third-party add-on peripherals such as modems or voice recorders. This device runs for approximately two months on just two AAA batteries and comes with a one-year manufacturer's warranty.

Putting it simply, the Palm IIIxe is a five-star device. If you want just the highlights as to why, see my Short Notes below. If you want the full review, go to Detailed Notes further down.
Short Notes:
- Excellent quality overall, good ergonomics.
- 8 MB RAM, easily sufficient to store a wide variety of applications plus data.
- Has 2 MB flash memory, enough to handle upgraded (v3.5) OS.
- Sharp, clear screen. Easy to read.
- Graffiti handwriting recognition is forgiving and easy to master quickly.
- Great battery life - should last over 30 days.
- Built-in infrared port - easy data exchange between Palm devices.
- Many available software applications, often freeware.
- Excellent and thorough documentation.
- Easy to learn how to use it - very intuitive if you hate manuals.
- Syncs well with Microsoft Outlook, if you're so inclined.
- Great price - a good investment.

Detailed Notes:
Spent a lot of time deciding which Palm OS model to go with, and finally picked the Palm IIIxe, primarily for the newer OS (v3.5), the 8 MB memory and the new lower price. Looked closely at the Palm m110 and Handspring Visor, units which offered attractive prices, but with 2 MB RAM, felt they didn't have enough memory. Also considered the Handspring Visor Deluxe, but on the two models that I had a chance to try out, the screens weren't the same quality as those of the Palm IIIxe, and nobody could explain it.
You may also wish to consider the new Palm m105. See the notes at the bottom of this review for more details.
To be fair, I also considered some of the newer Windows CE devices, but was put off completely by the hand recognition software. It was too slow and hard to use, so that idea was dropped quickly.

If you want something better than the IIIe or something cheaper than the IIIc/V/Vx, then look no further to the IIIxe. It's the perfect blending of the IIIe and the IIIx at a price point that can't be beat. I couldn't justify spending the extra money for the IIIc (who needs color anyways! ) or for the V (2MB is kinda puny), so I opted out for the IIIxe instead of the Vx. And it's great! I've owned a handheld device before, but it was large and cumbersome and the only advantage was that it was based on something familiar, Windows. The IIIxe is simple, easy to use and learn, and very useful for that time when you need to write something down and you don't have pen and paper. I would highly recommend considering the IIIxe if you are in the market for a Palm organizer. It's priced right in the middle, has the same features that the IIIe/IIIx has but more installed RAM (about 8MB total), plus it's upgradable (although the Vx has the extra "coolness" factor because of the slim aluminum casing). I've had mine for only two days now, and already it has gotten me out of forgetting information that was useful to me. So if you are looking for an organizer and are debating between WinCE or a Palm, go for a Palm. Much simpler and easier. Besides, why would you need a WinCE device that has a color screen, limtied battery life, music playback capabilities (on a small tiny speaker? ), and that dreaded Windows operating system (we don't need another spawn of Windows...there are already too many right now with 95, 98, NT and 2000). Palm IIIxe...the way to go.

This is my first handheld, and I am so glad that I did not get a Windows CE handheld. The Palm IIIxe has over a month of battery life (compared to several hours with Windows CE), never crashes, and is so easy to use. It syncs really well with Outlook 2000 and Outlook 98. No problems whatsoever. I especially like the wide range of programs you can get online for free or at a small cost. Windows CE could not do that. Now to the Palm IIIxe itself. I think this is the "best value for the buck" Palm there is right now. Sure, there is the Palm IIIc and the Palm Vx, but they cost [more than this unit]. All three have 8MB of RAM and the updated operating system. The IIIc has the color screen, but why do you need a color screen in a handheld? If it is for playing games in color, then you are wasting your money. The Palm Vx is exactly the same as the IIIxe, except it has the new style, but let me ask you this. Why do you need style in an organizer? You may say that these two models have rechargeable batteries, a feature that the Palm IIIxe does not have, but I have been using Nickel Metal Hydrate batteries (NiMH) on my Palm IIIxe and the work very well. Get some more information from Palm users about their experience with NiMH batteries.... After you answer those two questions, you will agree with me that the Palm IIIxe is the best value Palm out now. I chose the IIIxe over the Handspring Visor Deluxe for several reasons. First of all, in the Visor Deluxe, you cannot upgrade the operating system when new updates are introduced. Handspring, however, says that you can add in a Springboard module to upgrade the OS. But how will the device operate later if you switch the Springboard with another one? No more OS upgrade, that's what.Read more ›
