Most Mac friendly PDA?
Hey everybody, anybody have a PDA or know what would be the one that best integrates with OS X? Thanks!

Certainly not a pocketpc in my experience. There are progs out there that will interact with them, but they're not too reliable.

So that leaves Palm based PDAs unless Apple bring out an OS X based Newton or something (which would be a very nice idea! No idea why they don't)

At this point neither the PocketPC or Palm is well supported since Palm decided to officially stop making their software for Mac. However both have 3rd parties that make conduits that link them with iSync.

Okay, so basically there isn't really anything out there that is good for Macs? What's up with that Apple? Come on, get on the ball, you're getting left behind, and leaving us with you!

I wouldn't really say that, and it's not Apple's fault. Talk to the people who actually make the PDA's, they're the ones responsible for making a PDA.

And the PDA market isn't really large and has been stagnant for some time. I don't think Apple's taking a major blow from this although as always, it would be nice if it were more supported.

Alot of people are resorting to web based calendars or pc based. PDA sales are down alot from last christmas. PocketPC in my presonal exp. is a waste and got sold on eBay after a year of no use. A Palm is nice however its nothing that a nice personal organizer wrapped in leather using good ol fashoined pen can't solve. To me inputing data in a Palm is just to much of a task, I can write half a page before I can write 2 sentances in a palm.... Thats just me though
