Advantages: Easy to use, Cheap
Disadvantages: Chunky, Needs replacable batteries (frequently!)
I'd wanted a handheld for a long time - I was a disorganised gadget junkie, and I thought that a PDA would solve my diary-keeping problem whilst satisfying my thirst for technology.
The Palm m105 was cheap, that was the thing that made it stand out on the shelf in the the shop. So I had a play, found I liked it, and bought one. Having got it home, I played some more and found I loved it.
Being Palm OS, there is a huge amount of free software available to be downloaded from the net, and the OS is etremely easy and logical to use. The software that comes built in is enough for most functions that you would use it for, and software is available for just about anything you could possibly think of doing, and probably some things you can't.
Moans; well, the lack of built in rechargeable batteries is annoying. It's also a bit chunky and can be quite irritating to carry in a trouser pocket. Other than that, it's great.
Oh, and don't let your mates play with it. Whilst Palm replaced the screen free of charge, it was still annoying to be without it for a week.
