The Palm Zire handheld is designed from the ground up for everyday personal use. On the move, at school or at work, it makes the dream of paperless life a reality. Feel like you don't have enough time to catch up with everything? The chances are you're not in control of your schedule. Unlike a paper organizer, the Zire handheld gives you the whole picture: appointments and people, tasks and notes, and ties them all together.Nothing could be more natural than entering information into the Zire handheld. Unlike a PC, which forces you to use a keyboard, or a mobile phone, which demands dexterous thumbs, the Zire handheld is much more civilized. If you know how to write in capital letters, you know how to use the Zire handheld. In just a few minutes, you will have mastered Graffiti, Palm's unique - and very intuitive - handwriting language. How easy is it? Well, like A-B-C. What's more, what would happen if you lost your paper agenda? With a Zire handheld, you can keep a copy of all your information on your PC.

It would make more sense to buy a used PalmOne Zire that you know works.
I want to add some things that are not so obvious. First - you need the additional case. It's only ... With it, I can now toss the Zire into my briefcase and not worry about scratching up the screen (the case does NOT smell bad as some reviews say). Second, I didn't know that the Zire has a "note pad" where you can write in notes right on the screen -great for those "need a scrap of paper" moments. Third, the desktop software is excellent - easy to use, very versatile. Fourth, I was skeptical about the Graffitti function, which lets you write in your entries into the date book, memo pad, address book and expense area and have it logged as typed text. But it works GREAT. It took me 10 minutes to familiar with some of the odd letters (such as k), but now I can write into it faster than typing.
Down side: it can be a bit hard to read in dim light. But that's ok with me becaus it saves battery power. The rechargable battery was a big sell with me as well - - 3 weeks using now, and I have not needed a recharge.
For the record, I have a full business calendar and address book. This thing is changing my haphazard collection of printed sheets and my stack of business cards from various colleagues. It works and it easy to use.
UPDATE in September 2003: Coming onto a year of using this, and I still highly recommend it. I use it every day, many time per day. I have hundreds of contacts in it. I edit my calendar on the fly every day. And it fits into my shirt pocket. It's as part of my day as my watch or wallet - and the size is right. The battery only needs charging about every 3 weeks. I synchronize ith with my desktop each night w/ no problems.
For a basic scheduler , contact list, memo pad, it's great. I can't imagine spending hundreds of dollars for a PDA when I have this. Buy it!
It does what it does as well as any Palm. It is not flimsily built or ill-equipped as packaged (but, ouch, the package will cut you if you're not careful!!).
I think for the multi-user like myself, it has a place, and that it also has a place for beginners or light users who may want to upgrade (or not) later on; key to all databanks is the migratability of data. You tend to build up unbelievable amounts of names and numbers, etc., and if you change brands, moving the data is well nigh impossible.
Yes its slower than the average Palm, but for a basic user, who cares? Yes it has less buttons, but for someone who uses it mostly for calendar and phone book, who cares? Yes it "only" has 2 mb of memory, but considering a basic user will be lucky to use 1/3 of that, who care?
If you are a basic user, mostly focused on calendar and address book, with no desire for email and stuff, then get this. Its great.
