PDA for medical student/gadget addict
      #12276 - 06/18/04 10:04 PM

Hi! I'm a medical student about to go to my clinical rotations and I'm buying my first PDA soon. I think that a basic one would meet my needs for digital medical texts and whatnot that I need to carry with me in the hospitals, but I also want one that will play music, games and allow me to surf the web when I get bored. I'm really thinking of either the sony UX-50 or the iPaq 4150 or 4350 (or any other PDA with both bluetooth and WiFi). Price isn't a big issue with me and I don't really know what the differences are between the Palm OS or Windows mobile. I'm almost sold on the UX-50 (the camera and keyboard are pretty nice), but I'm concerned that the screen and the battery aren't big enough. Any comments or advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

With any PDA, if you use the wireless radio (specially wifi) and play games/video/MP3, you are not going to get long battery runtimes. Sony does sell an add-on battery pack which can help add longer runtimes. Here is the battery pack on Sony's site.
