My version of the perfect Palm was already out there... almost! I have been through several handhelds in my days:
*Various RadioShack Handheld Computers
*HP200lx - A great little machine that was built like a tank. Loads and loads of DOS programs available.
*Handspring Visor Platinum - My first Palm, It is still working today. I loved the Springboard concept. Nice Datebk as well.
*Palm 505 - Not bad but not enough memory, I used this while I had other various Palms.
*Zodiac 2 - This was *almost* a perfect Palm:
128 megs / graphics accellerator / great launcher / great built-in apps / two sd card slots / vibrate / analog stick / fantastic screen / felt very good in the hand (the absolute best ebook reader with its shoulder buttons) / BlueTooth
The HotSync Connector was horrible! / some digitizer problems / no built-in WiFi/battery was so-so
*Zire 72 - Very good, only downside was low memory and no built-in WiFi
*Palm TX - Mixed bag, it does lot very well but it can be frustrating at times. A mic would have been nice...
On question; Why did they ever change from the HotSync connector that the Zire 72 uses??? It always worked! No little pins to break, etc. Standard USB cable, imagine that!
Other Apps I think they should include in ROM:
Some sort of MP3 Alarm clock!
I really wish Tapwave had stuck around for one more Zodiac release...
