I want to be "undiverged"
Following up on the thread "Is the PDA dead", I am one of the (apparently) few people who wants a PDA. Not a Smartphone, just a PDA. If I want to call someone, I'll use my cellphone but, giving away my age, most of the time my cellphone is off and stored in the glovebox of my car.
I guess I don't feel the need to be "always on", and my cellphone is for making calls, not taking calls. There are plenty of places where folks can leave me a voicemail message and I'll get back to them - am I the last dinosaur to think like this?
However, I use my PDA all the time. Lately, it has shown a few signs of impending illness, if not terminal illness. So my daily asset (an iPAQ hx2410) may be on its last legs, yet I cannot find a device with an equivalent capability unless it is "converged".
Doing the search on forums like this, and others, I thought the iPAQ211 would work but when you go to the site and drill down, it says it has a life expectancy (regarding usefulness rather than physical durability, I suppose) of three years. As it has been out for a while, why should I spend $500+ for a now self-admitted obsolescent device?
