Jsimbaz, you might have to up the budget - Bluetooth and wifi come at a bit of a price.

I use an Ipaq 4150 which seems to be around the £275 mark - worth the dosh, I think, as it has both Bluetooth and wifi, is small and light and pretty powerful. It runs Pocket PC and handles the web well.

Have a look at this thread click here
which is a discussion about PDAs including my musings on the pros and cons of Pocket PC vs Palm.

I know its a bit more than you asked BUT the newer T5 is made of Plastic and not as robust. And although no wifi this can beadded later. I have had a T3 for 12 months and its been brilliant.

Loads of free software out there too.

It also keps its charge very well.

that looks great, but a bit skeptivcal about buying second hand from mazon, as i've never done it before. Can anyone give me any advice??

i looked at the site, and it looks good, but there are no refeurbished units atm.

been looking for a couple of days now and have come to a stick in the road! Pocket PC or Palm??? any more help appreciated.

Both are good BUT pocket PC (as with Microsoft) tend to be memory hungry. Palm also have a few glitches but there response to problems if you buy new and register on the UK site Not VIA the installation software seem very good. Sent my other half a new TE (even tho he'd bought it in the USA) free of charge. And I've always had good response from there help centre online.

Also The T3 has a good screen (as does the T5) Best thing to do is to go into PC World or somewhere and have a good test run. Then shop around
