PDA2K is sold, updating the X50v

I sold the PDA2K yesterday and am shipping it off this morning to New York. After posting on the Howard Forums site I had 4 people ask to purchase it at my special blog price of $600, plus shipping. I took quite a loss on this device, but I needed the money to finish paying for the Tablet and like to spread the joy of mobile devices to all parts of the world:)

I just updated the ROM on my X50v to A03 as I set it up as my new primary PDA that will be used with my Nokia 7610 and SPV E200 to surf wirelessly. It is kind of a nice feeling slimming down my collection, but those Phone Edition devices (the JAM and PDA2K) are very nice machines that I am sure I will miss. I actually haven’t been missing the Treo 650 and think it just wasn’t meant to be for me.

I spent some time reinstalling apps on my new desktop last night and have a ways to go still. I also finished transferring files off the old hard drive and then reformatted it last night. I now have to remove the HP partition (10GB out of 60GB) so I can take full advantage of the capacity on the drive. The desktop has been performing very well though and I look forward to getting the additional 1GB of RAM put in there.

    How did you decide which tablet to get? Does it have built in bluetooth?

    I used a client’s Acer tablet PC this week to show rural property. He had both Microsoft mapping software with GPS button (cabled) and a bluetooth connection on a cell phone for internet access at the same time. It was very useful to have both tools in a part of Texas I was not familiar with and access to the MLS database and agent’s websites for additonal info.

    Do you think Apple will be jumping in to the tablet PC market?

    Matt I will be very interested on how you get along with the Tablet PC. I can understand why you got rid of the Treo as I am a wee bit unhappy with mine as well.

    I found a very nice deal on the Fujitsu n Tablet PC Buzz. My work also just bought one of these models and I saw it was high quality too. I understand the Toshibas and HPs are great, but too high priced for my virgin Tablet blood. You never know, maybe I will upgrade later:)

    It does not have BT:( but I am trying to see if I can add it and if not then I will use a dongle.
