heya I am looking for a PDA under $900 that allows me to gain access to the internet and also has MP3 player built in and stores photo's, videos etc, I also want to purchase this phone from a store which will be around the Wellington region as I don't have a credit card.

The TNZ Apache will be the cheaper Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition, if I read their prices correctly (about NZ$1199 at this time). It will be a couple of hundred dollars over your budget though, but they go down in price if you enter in a plan/contract - down to NZ$395 on a 36 month term.

Then there is the i-mate KJam (on Vodafone), which will be some NZ$600 over your budget (when I wrote this reply it was priced at NZ$1599).

Pocket PC Phone Edition devices are more expensive than Pocket PC devices because the phone part (mainly the radio).

I found the HP Ipaq rx3715 to be a great PDA. WiFi, Bluthooth SD slot - I think they go for $600-700 these days. Good screen and 1.3mp camera which can also take video. Great sound quality from the headphones and the built in specker is pretty good too.

I had one up untill I got my Apache which is the only reason I got rid of it.




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

Mauricio made this blog entry about the Dell X51v...



There is a deal at Dell where they throw in a 1Gb SD card. The prices range from $649 to $799.

A few weeks ago we had a 30% discount code for a week, valid for all Dell Axim in the Dell NZ website. It's gone now, but we are working to get something back - perhaps not in your timeframe though.

But you have to keep an eye in our promotion articles - or add our RSS feed to your reader...

Tell them that you are asserting your right to be a Geek, and that the commissioner for human rights looks poorly upon those who discriminate...

Well don't be ashamed - come out of the closet and assert your right to be a Geek. Who knows in years to come may be Geeks will be added to the list of those who can be Civil Unioned!
