In response to your Palm T/X posting, I just want to let you know I purchased this Palm a few weeks ago and am absolutely over-the-moon at how wonderful this product is. I've been a Palm user for years and in my opinion, this is the best Palm ever. You do need to have a wireless network set up in order to take advantage of the Wi-Fi capability, so if you don't have wi-fi at home, you'll severely limit your ability to surf the net using wi-fi technology. Still, if you live in a major city, public wi-fi access is becoming more and more available. At a local shopping mall in Los Angeles, for example, there is an Apple store that has a public link. You can sit outside, within a pretty good distance from the store, access the Apple Store link and check your e-mail, browse the net, etc. at no cost. The browser application pre-loaded onto the T/X is" Blazer" and is amazingly fast. If you don't have a wireless network at home, it is no longer very expensive or difficult to set up and is well worth the effort. If you already have a wireless home network, you're home free. I can't say enough for what a great product the T/X is. I debated for a long, long time about upgrading my phone to a Treo 650 and ultimately decided that, being much more of a Palm user than a phone user, I'd benefit more from upgrading my Palm. The T/X came out just as I'd finally made my decision to upgrade and I am so, so happy that I chose this route. If you use your cell phone service for web access, you pay a significant monthly fee and usage fee, as you know, for the "data package" that gives you Internet access. Wi-fi, once set up, is totally free for unlimited time and access.
I could go on and on about all the other great T/X features, not the least of which is the beautiful high-resolution, landscape/portrait screen, but I think I've made my point. You'd think I work for Palm, the way I'm raving, but I have absolutely no connection to the company. I am, as I said, just a long-time user who believes the new T/X is a great, great value and tool. Good luck with your decision!
