The expert here at Towson strongly recommends Palm Desktop (Chapura's PocketMirror and Pumatech's IntelliSync) for the Palm OS, and Microsoft ActiveSync for Windows CE and PocketPC devices.
I hope this is helpful.

Subject: PDA handheld...brand suggestions?
I'm wanting to get a pda, and for several reasons...it would be nice to set
up some kind of rubic or grading template, something for notes where walking
around the room while students work I can do some evaluation to refer to
I know the PC models come with a small Microsoft windows package, which
includes Excel which would be ideal. Unfortunately, having macs such would
not be compatible, ....or, would it?
I know that my mac at school will read stuff from my pc at home, but not
vice versa. Is it possible that a PC pda's notations on an Excel program
could be read by a Mac's Excel?
I'd like to be able to use it as a slide show....perhaps something like
PowerPoint to display images of art works.
Anyone here with experience using a pda that might make some suggestions or
good points to consider before buying one?
I've been lookin' over specs of the Palm Tungsten T3....the Dell Axim x5...
I guess though, that the T3's battery is not replaceable, and when it dies
in about 2 years you have to mail it to the company to be replaced. Is that
how that works? Goofy!
