2.0 out of 5 stars Review of V37 (not V37-2), February 5, 2006
This review is from: ViewSonic V37 Pocket PC (V37-2) (Office Product)
I tried searching the Viewsonic website to find out how the V37-2 differed from the V37 and I couldn't find that distinction. Viewsonic has nothing related to "v37-2". Maybe it was an OS upgrade or something. Here's my review on the original V37.

I received a V37 as a promotional deal that packaged it with a new MSDN Universal subscription (Microsoft's Software Developer tools). It was better than my Palm m505 at the time so I used the V37. I had no complaints for the few years that I used it until recently when I could no longer sync (transfer data between the V37 and my computer). I believe it's a hardware problem with the port on the V37 itself to which the USB cable connects. I don't think it's worth fixing and I can't sell it like that so I recently purchased a new PDA (another brand). Pay attention to the other review for the V37 that points out you can no longer upgrade the OS from Pocket PC 2002 to Pocket PC 2003. I missed out during the short window of time that was available from Viewsonic--and it's true, it's no longer available. If you're thinking of buying a V37, don't get a new one as there are other PDAs on the market now that are better and in the same price range. But if you are considering a used one at a decent price (say under $200), it's a nice PDA. Bright screen, color of course, enough memory for all but the extreme PDA addict. I wish it had a louder meeting reminder sound. I would give this a higher rating if it we were still in the year 2002 (maybe a 3 or 4 out of 5). But by today's standards, it's on the verge of being "like...so 5 minutes ago!"
