My brother got me started using a Palm device back in 1998. I bought a Palm III that fall, and have owned a IIIc, a Vx, a m515 and most recently a T|X that I’ve had for almost 5 years. I like the Palm platform. The T|X does everything I need it to do. Some things could be better, but it’s a good device.
But the IR died about two years ago. Cable connection went next, about 8-10 months ago. I could still Hotsync using wi-fi, but that seems to have died today. Tried a Soft Reset, and a System Reset, and no joy. I think it’s time to replace it. A repair attempt would cost
The question is, replace it with what? A refurbed T|X from PalmDr is $213 plus shipping. A refurbed 32G Touch is $259 with free shipping, and a 1-year warranty. Heck, an 8G is only $149. That’s very tempting. I can’t afford a data plan without a job, or I’d go ahead and get the iPhone.
But there are rumors of a new Touch coming out in the next couple of months. That would trigger a price drop on the old ones. Hmm. What to do?
