Sony Clie TH55

[ #17817 ]

I haven't had any new technology in a
while, and my Palm m505 was feeling kinda stale. Excellent
form-factor, but dim, fuzzy color screen.

I'm a long-time Palm user (going way back to the US Robotics days) and
a Mac user, to going Sony was a bit of a stretch. But I liked the big
screen and the third-party 'The Missing Sync' software plays well with
Chronos' Personal Organizer.

It's got 802.11b, voice recording (don't need that), less than 1
mega-pixel camera (sort of useful), mp3 player (fun), and supports the
larger Memory Stick (I got the 256 MB).

Sony Electronics is a pure Windows-only device maker, so I've got this
useless install CD, but I'm making do. I went into this with open
eyes, especially after struggling with the Windows-only NetMD minidisc
player.

There is some satisfaction making Sony bend to my will - forcing it
co-exist in a Mac OS X environment.

I thought about the Zaurus . . . but didn't like the form-factor and
the mechanical pop-out keyboard. Too impatient to wait for Palm to
come out with something new.
