Is there a Palm OS PDA w/good outdoor screen visibility?
      #23162 - 03/24/06 08:44 PM

Still shopping for the right budget PDA (thanks for earlier replies) -- I love my husband's TX, but cannot see the screen outside. Most of my free moments to catch up on calender organizing seem to be outside (kids sports) -- are there models w/better outdoor visibility? Or, is it possible to tweak the screen settings to improve visibility? I'm trying to stay w/Palm OS so that my husband and I can sync outlook together. I don't need internet, so I am also considering used models if they fit the bill. Any recommendations? Thanks.

You'll find that all current PDAs, both Palm and Pocket PC use transflective color displays which look just lovely indoors but are harder to read outdoors. The one exception is the budget Palm Z22 (reviewed at http://www.mobiletechreview.com/Palm-Z22.htm ) which uses a budget display that's not as pretty indoors but is easier to read outdoors.
