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.
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

So if that's what you want - the Z22 is not for you.
If you want a reliable, low cost, digital organizer for contacts, a calendar, writing memos, making notes, storing photos (not high quality, but good enough if you are like me and never remember to carry pictures of your family), logging expenses, making lists, playing games (comes with a good chess game on the add on software), dividing the check and figuring the tip, this is for you.
Also - eliminates the need to carry a calculator or an alarm clock. Has a built in dictionary (again in the add on software)Is easy to back up on a PC (can't vouch for a Mac). And there's other software which comes with the basic device, that I never use, and plenty of memory if you want to purchase or get free additional programs.
I love it. It's better than the prior no frills palm pilot I had, and has done something I never thought was possible: I have virtually eliminated my pen and pencil daily organizer.
A bargain at about 90 bucks, as long as you don't want to use it to make phone calls.
Its small, and very light, I recommend you get some kind of case for it, for both protection and to carry it without worrying you might break it.
The reason I gave it a 4 and not a 5 is this:
The instructional book isn't 'that' helpful, when I was reading through one of the booklets that came with it, it kept saying "refer to the start up guide", but I couldn't find the start up guide. There are no "how to" sections in the booklet to help you learn it faster.
True its not that difficult, if you have a few minutes, you should just start pushing buttons and with in a few minutes you'll get the hang of it.
Also the booklet said to charge it for 3 hours before use, but the truth is it need EIGHT (8) hours. After the 3 hours were done, I took it with me to the coffee shop and needed to check something but it wouldn't turn on. So I was PDA-less until I got home and charged it for the rest of the night.
But other than that, its very handy, I wish more of the cool software came included such as the "Shopping" application, which you can "Try".
I hope that helps.
With that said, there's a lot to love about this little guy...
First of all, the obvious: what a great price! As a student, I was on a budget and only wanted something to replace my old-fashioned agenda and various unorganized papers, schedules, etc. It gives me all the features I need at a price that's beyond reasonable. I've always thought buying cheaper electronics almost always results in problems, and while I see that other reviewers experienced some and I received a defective model at first, this appears to be a very stable, useful device. Basically, it is what it is. It's not trying to be an mp3 player, a video player, or any other kind of portable media device. Personally, I know I don't need the extra features of PDAs that cost 100s of dollars more, because I already have devices that do those things.
Aside from this, it's very easy to use. I had never even picked up a Palm handheld before and after I charged it up I messed around with it a bit and was able to figure out everything I wanted to do. The setup is very straight forward, syncing is easy, and even adding software is a breeze. While I'm pretty experienced with electronics, I imagine even someone who has no experience would have no problems setting up and using this device.
And from a less technical standpoint... you have to love the Z22's design. I love how stylish it looks in the little rubber case I got for it. It's compact, super cute, and fits nicely in your hand. The screen isn't too big, but it's definitely not too small. I feel like it's a comfortable size and weight to take anywhere with you, without sacrificing anything. Some might feel the screen size is on the small side, but I really think it doesn't need to be any bigger. And though it's something that a lot of people might overlook, the buttons on this thing are great. I've had a lot of devices with buttons that are too flat or small and sometimes don't respond when you push them(because it's a mission to do so), but I can't see that being a problem with this one.
Overall I'm very happy with my Z22 so far and if I don't have any problems like I did in the beginning, I can see using it for a very long time.
The Palm Zire 22 runs like a dream on Windows; it remains funky on Linux, but it does WORK, even there. Even with the bugs, I've successfully consolidated several thousand contacts from two incompatible databases, and a heavy calendar, into the Palm.
Granted, Linux users still face bugs with the compatible Linux Zire 22 software. One can find the latest workarounds from the open source pilot-link organization, including the latest pilot-link version, to coordinate the Zire 22 with Linux desktop operating systems.
Alas, my Linux system isn't yet compatible with the latest pilot-link version. But upon executing some June 20 2005 instructions, I successfully constructed a new Linux pilot.rules file, implanted it into the /etc/udev/rules.d directory and raised my existing kpilot software from the dead. Now, my Linux system automatically opens the required port to the Palm Zire 22 device, on startup.
Best of all, the alarm goes off, warning me of scheduled events.
