Just a quick further update, and the last, I promise. I have my whole lif in the Palm of my hand! Sorry, couldn't resist. There is almost a feeling of trepidation about all the info stored in there. But I am infinitely more organised and never miss appointments. I am happy that the money was a worthwhile investment. What more can I say. Still dont think it is worth getting the colour version though. --------------------------------------------------- I thought I woud do an update after just over a week with my new palm m505. My original full review follows this update. So.....am I still using it? Should I have bought something else? Would I have bought ... Read the complete review

This is my fourth Palm computer. The first was a "Pilot 1000", the original Palm, with one meg of data space, no infra-red, and only a few applications. Haven't things changed since? WHAT THIS LITTLE THING DOES --------------------------- It's tiny, first of all. It's very slim indeed; far slimmer than a IPAQ or equivalent, which is why I like it. It uses Graffiti, a handwriting recognition system which works pretty well and is pretty fast. But the main point about any Palm is the connectivity. The m505, in common with its monochrome m500 cousin, connects to your PC via a USB cradle, to share data and even share ... Read the complete review

The Palm's m505 is at the top of the range when it comes to palmtop computers The Palm V revolutionised palmtop computers, making them cool and desirable, as well as portable sources of information. Palm's latest model is the m505, including all the style of a Palm V but with a lot of new features. The biggest change is the colours screen which certainly makes things look much clearer, but beyond that the advantages are hard to find. If cash is an issue but you want what the m505 has to offer, consider its £70 cheaper sibling, the rn500. Apart from a greyscale screen, the two machines are identical. With a massive price difference of £330 ... Read the complete review

I've owned a pda for quite a few years, the past 5 years or so has been my trust Psion 3a. This broke a few months ago & I decide to cross over to the Palm OS despite that fact that I hated the diary system in the Palm. The main thing about a pda must be size - if it wasn't we'd all buy a laptop! The M505 is great for size & can literally fit in your shirt pocket. It's a little heavy for a formal shirt pocket, but size wise it's perfect. Writing with the touch pen is very easy. I was apprehensive of this, but I picked it up very quickly indeed. It's certainly slower than a keyboard (even a Psion) but is great for taking the odd ... Read the complete review

After owning a Palm Vx for the last 18 months, i was very pleased to find out about the launch of the new generation of Palm Pilots. I did not initally expect the new M505 model to be that different. After spending the first few hours playing around with it, i started to realise that the M505 was much more functional than its predecessors. I was keen to see whether the colour screen matched my expectations (after reading a number of mixed opinions about it)! Overall, i found the screen to be very good especially using the backlight. With every Palm i have used,with no exceptions, (starting with the Palm Professional) i have found all the screens to ... Read the complete review
