I had a Velo500 for a few days before getting rid of it and returning to my Palm III. There was nothing wrong with it, it's just that it didn't suit my needs at the time. It's a fairly standard sort of size and weight as far as CE handhelds go, the battery life is a day or so and it comes with a docking station that is very easy to install on your PC (I used it in both NT and Win98 and was happy with both, although the Win98 install was a bit simpler). The CE2 OS is fairly easy to get to grips with, with only a couple of minor differences to the 'grown-up' version of Windows that it resembles. But to anyone who is used to using something like a Palm Pilot that doies things instantly, the sight of an hourglass symbol rotating while the handheld has a think about what to do next is a little disconcerting.
