Where this one does well is that it is a perfect entry-level organizer for people who have been put off by the high price of, say, a Palm Vx. It is simple. It is clean. My mom could use it.
Most people need a basic organizer, with maybe, one extra application. For them, this Palm shines. 2MB is a whole lot of memory unless you want to jam half-a-dozen AvantGo channels into it.
That said, the flip cover looks really cheap and does not snap to the bottom of the device. It does not add much protective value to the device. The plastic casing seems sturdy. Mine has already withstood a 7 foot drop onto carpeting with not a scratch. The screen though smaller is sharp (when compared to my older PalmPilot, and easy on the eyes). The clock is a nice additional touch.
If you've been waiting to ditch your paper organizer, this is the time.
The M100 does have two handy additions to the Palm formula: the first is an integrated clock, and the other is a piece of software designed to replace Memo Pad. This feature, called Note Pad, allows you to draw and take notes directly on the screen rather than using Graffiti to enter text. I found it very handy for jotting down a phone number, which you can later transcribe with Graffiti. Don't think you must get an M100 to do this, though; third-party software, such as BugMe can do essentially the same thing on any Palm OS device.
By far the most appealing change is the small, light, new body. Although at 4.4 ounces it weighs little more than the Palm V, the M100 is much thicker than that model. When you tire of basic black, just snap off the faceplate and replace it with another color.
A new, double-hinged screen cover has a little window through which you can see a portion of the screen and a hole that allows you to access the scroll button. If you press this button when the M100 is turned off, the clock will be displayed through the window of the cover. When an appointment alarm sounds, you can read it right through the window as well. The cover can be folded behind the device, an improvement over the III series, but it tends to flap around a bit.
I like the price since, for $150, a Palm OS device with 2MB of RAM is plenty of computer.Read more ›
(+) it's compact & inexpensive, so you do not have to think twice before slipping it into your pants or shirt pocket. I previously owned a palm pilot personal and the difference in size and weight is noticable - carrying the personl (or the Revo) was annoying after an hour or two, I now carry the m100 all day and hardly notice it.
(+) hotsync: if you use outlook caledar, do not even consider a psion. Their synchronization software is stone age compared to hotsync & pocketMirror (all included in the box).
(+) batteries: a matter of personal taste I guess, but I like using a couple of AAA's for a month and than just buy new ones which can be found everywhere better than worrying about taking a charger with me when I travel.
(+) 360 degrees hinge flip cover - the most functional cover I have seen so far: it's thin, sturdy, and can flip open using one hand.
(*) my favorite add ons: 1) minicalc - a commercial spredsheet app. that syncs nicely with exell. 2) thinkDB - a commercial 'database' app with customizable forms & filtering.
(-) MIA's: e-mail sync., spelling checker, display pixel count. voice recording.
(-) RAM Size: 2MB becomes marginal with the add on apps mentioned above. Had to remove AvantGo :(
I'll take a star for memory size and build quality - but I never regret buying it!
