  • I've just bought a Visor Edge. Yes, I know it's old tech...but that's the point. The advantages of a Visor Edge are:
    • Cheap! Yes, they're currently a hundred quid from Carphone Warehouse (end of line.) This means when I break it/lose it/wash it etc I won't be overly heartbroken.
    • Tiny! Fits in my pocket. Unlike certain windows based platforms I might mention. It has to fit in my pocket...I'm not going to carry it around with me in my bag...If I do that I might as well carry my ultra-light laptop.
    • Stupid long battery life. I mean, I've never got the thing down to 3/4 power yet, even after four days of not charging the thing and using it to read books in the dark.
    • Palm compatible. It's what you're used to. It's what I was used to. I knew it would do what I want and nothing more, and nothing less. Does this make me a luddite?
    • USB - transfer things to your desktop much much quicker than with a serial Palm.
    • Linux compatible. Support for the edge is mature. It just works(tm) with coldsync (or pilot-xfer) or whatever. I've even had the things syncing with gcalender before.
