Been lookin for a good functional PDA... My old Uniden UniPRO (WinCE like 1.0 or something) was a POS, and my Apple Newton 120 is just too clunky and akward... My alternatives were Palm or Zaurus... Luckily I found an SL-5500 for $160. I can't wait till it gets here and hope it's not missing too many accessories.
Anywhozer... Now I need some memory for it... Lookin at Kingston's website, they sell a 512 MB SD card... Is this size compatible or supported? Anyone use this? It costs about as much as my Zaurus did. (CF is going to be used by Socket WiFi card, GPS card, or a Microdrive.)
Next question... Battery life... Any good on the stock battery? I've searched and seen that the 5500 Battery works on the 700 series to make it smaller... Will the same be true only making the 5500 bigger? Good cause I have a habit of loosing small things, plus I don't need it falling outta my pocket when I wear khakis or slacks.
And finally, how good is the front end on this? I'm not terribly proficient at *nix O/Ses... I'm learning FreeBSD a little bit, and I'm gonna trade my PC out for an SGI Indigo2 or perhaps an Octane as my primary desktop workstation.
