I need a PDA recommendation for email purposes!!
      #13962 - 08/02/04 08:00 PM

Am totally confused. Finally came to the conclusion that I really only need a PDA for sending and receiving email - not to surf the web. I would also like it to function as a telephone.

Had been looking at Blackberry and TREO but now I am getting the feeling that I don't need to go with such a sophisticated PDA..

Any and all suggestions would be appreciated.

The BlackBerry device is designed to be an email/messaging device first, phone second. It has a email push technology that ensures you get email messages anytime. It has some basic PIM functions for you to keep contacts, calendars and such.

The Treo 600 is a PDA plus phone device and have recently added the Good Technology push email bit so that it can get emails pushed to the mobile devices.

From our hands-on experience, the BlackBerry is more integrated for email purposes.
