Palm VIII don't mean to be critical of my feollw reviewers, but some of the negative reviews of the Palm VII totally miss the point of the thing. I carried one for over a year and found it incredibly useful. Now that I've moved outside of the service area, I miss it a lot. In spite of having the original VII with only 2 Megs of RAM, I never ran out of memory. I also never exceeded the lowest monthly service level, finding it adequate for my needs. Here's what I did and how I used it, which should be enough information for you to make a decision for yourself:This is truly the traveler's friend: I have no office and I get in a lot of planes. You'll make that dreaded trip to the airline service desk with a lot more confidence if you are armed with the schedule of every single airline and current flight status. The VII knows what flights are schedule between any two points at any time, and provides current flight status. When suggesting' to the desk staff that they strongly consider booking you on another airline, your case will be stronger with flight number and departure info.You can usually find the departure gate information (not to mention delay status) sitting in the shuttle from the parking area (at DFW, you need to know the gate number to tell the taxi which building to stop at). And of course, if you want, you can even make plane reservations online.If driving over 10 miles, I query for traffic conditions. Embarrassed to ask directions? With the VII, you can enter location and destination and get detailed directions. Handy when stuck in the boonies without a phone. And when was the last time you saw a phone book at a pay phone? The VII can access Yellow and White pages. Weather forecasts, any time, any place.Ordering a book from Amazon is sort of a parlor trick, but it's also a useful way to research books in print. Can't remember which movies featured Minnie Driver ? There are a 2 movie databases. Faced with a life without wireless, I've had to buy a new PDA with a lot more RAM to carry a German/English dictionary. I actually bought two, but they aren't anywhere near as useful as the online translators, which not only support full sentences, but they translate between multiple languages. English dictionary, thesaurus, and encyclopedia are available also, which again is a big help to somebody without an office. The Palm VII does all this with the use of web clipping' applets that work with special applications on the information provider's web site. There are now hundreds of these things that can be downloaded. On the downside, this thing is a AAA pig. Get yourself a couple sets of Nimh batteries, and a small charger. More than once, I found myself paying a premium price for new batteries at a hotel gift shop. I also recommend the serial cable if you can't get infrared to work with your laptop carrying a cradle is a drag.This is not a platform for heavy-duty web surfing, nor is it a convenient place to send and receive mail, but I really miss not being able to use it any more for all these questions that need to be answered RIGHT NOW. But if you do get stuck without a book, you can download an e-book too.

The Z71, as far as i know is a fairly good device, having two, one i killed by taking it apart, another i still use. First, i'd like to highlight some errors in the specs.
It was released mid-2003, not July 2005.
Display IS colored
Does NOT have a microphone.
It DOES have a power button as well as customizable buttons
It should come with a case, which is protective, and covers the device.
Otherwise, it still works well, dropped, etc. and I am extremely satisfied with this device.
And, Mad Digitizer Syndrome is widespread, there are gazillions of articles and posts on how to combat this.

This a good PalmTop, do It's duty well. Its perfect to young people, who wants just to listen some music, make notes, task list...
I've liked so much of mine, but at same time that is very well, It is too a trash. Since I've bought It, past 3 years, and then, It starts to have CDS (Crazy Display Sindr.) then I've paid R$300 (US$150,00) to Palm Assistance fix it, two years later I've paid again, but this time was about a rupted Flat Cable.
So who wants a Palm with camera, I recommend a Zire 72-S Or a Treo680.
Now I have a HTC Tytn II (Kaiser) I'ts the best SmartPho I EVER HAD!

I have a zire 71 which suddenly does not seem to respond to the stylus. Is there a solution?

I'm dissappointed I'm unable to buy in Sydney Australia a cable to Sync my PalOne Zire 71. If I can get assistance where I can find one I would be very grateful
