I am looking around for a PDA, My choices are T3 and Ipaq 2210/2215 One of my main requirements is that i should be able to transfer unrelated files like Foxpro project files etc, i think palm does not support this action, can anyone tell me this,
thank you,

You can transfer them to either.

The easiest way to do either is to put them on a memory card and put the card in the unit.

On the Palm, you can hotsync directly to the storage card without any conversion.

On the PPC, you can send stuff to the handheld, but it may try to convert it in the process. The easiest way around it is to zip the file before you activesync it to the PPC...

You can hotsync any file type directly to a storage card, but you can't transfer unknown file types to the unit itself.

Of course, it's very slow, and your best bet really is to use some sort of card reader to do this...
