I had a double bonus on my return from holidays last week as waiting for me was the new edition of PDA Essentials and the long awaited reurn of PalmTop User, the latter is available for subscription overseas too. There’s not exactly a huge choice of handheld mags available in the UK so anything that is available is warmly welcomed.
This month’s PDAE is especially good with lots of reviews of new devices and an interesting group test of "email" devices which includes the 750v and the lardy boy of mobile computing, the Nokia E61. It may be slim but check out the girth of that guy.. I was disappointed to see that they reckon the 750v trailed in last and is starting to look "dated"….how can they say that? It’s always been dated…They do say it has the best keyboard, which in an email test, I would have thought counted for more.
They also review the HTC Touch and the new Motorola Q9. There is also an interesting article on the future of touchscreen devices and the usual selection of informative tutorials which I certainly learn quite a bit from.
And of course there is the new Palmtop User which comes out rather infrequently but is always worth the wait. You can subscribe here...This latest edition has some very good stuff in it with 8 full new devices reviews, how to make the most of desktop syncing and a look at the return of keyboarded devices of late.
