It's 18 months old now, and changes in the pda market have made it pretty obsolete, so only buy one if you see it 2nd hand and cheap! 75mhz isn't too great (half the speed of new ones) and Windows CE2 has been overtaken by PocketPC OS, so software is drying up, but if the choice is between a new palm and 2nd hand nino, I'd choose this for fun value... It has a good screen (indoors) and great handwriting recognition, but main value over palms is the quantity of gimmicks you can fit into the 16mb (exp to 32mb) memory - routeplanners, paint programs, html editors, ftp, MP3 players (mono only though!) etc... It has a modem and infrared, so links easily with my mobile phone to surf the web in colour on a browser I downloaded from TuCows.com - much more fun than WAP, even if it is rather slow! 5 star when i bought it - 3 star now! One of the better (and cheapest) colour CE PDAs of last year though.
