should my bf get a Palm Treo 650?
ok my bf told me to help him research about the Treo 650 but then i’m not sure if other answers i’ve found online are biased. i’m relying on the nice people here to help me out to help him out. he’s not sure if he should get that phone. he likes the features and stuff like word, excel, etc. but honestly he doesn’t even seem like the type that would know how to sync with the PC and stuff. also, about going online… don’t you have to separately order from your service provider to have internet? my bf’s not that PC smart type and i’m guessing this phone requires to have a lot to do with the PC exchange? also, email is mainly the greatest function of this phone… but without internet wouldn’t this phone be useless if it’s used for emailing? let’s say that my bf doesn’t have the internet service from his provider, is there even a reason to get this phone anymore? hes also not in office job. please help out with the info i’ve provided. (dont worry i’ll let him know that i got help here)

These days normal phones can do lot of functions that smartphones do. play music, manage your calender, take photos (low res), read documents etc.
Palm can do lot more things like create presentations, read documents, read books, dictionary and ofcourse, browse internet. But that browsing is lot limited.
ya. you are correct. For accessing internet, it requires a GPRS connection to be bought from telecom company. I beleive it costs good amount of money regardless of which country you are in!
By the way, there are other alternatives. There are these devices that come with a wireless LAN capability in them. So when you are in starbucks, airport etc. where there is free wireless lan (wi-fi), you can get to internet and do all the stuff from there. Some counties in US are also getting their free wireless lan soon. Even you can install Skype and call for free. But again all these installation needs to be done from a computer. If you have access to some friend who can help, you can get these stuff done once and start learning! of course this gadget can act as phones.
Check this model: hw6900 series (also has a GPS receiver, so ur bf will not get lost)

Does anyone believe in tarot cards, and palm reading?
or do u think its untrue, and its a waste of money
Suggestion by Serena
I haven’t decided about palm reading, but yes I believe in tarot. However, with a lot of the people who ask for money for those things…it’s a waste of money.
If it’s something you’re interested in, it’s quite rewarding to learn it for yourself :).

I have to agree with Serena, its quite a wonderful skill to learn it isnt for everyone but I find it better then most Divination techniques.

can anyone recocommend a pda that can download e-books online?
Suggestion by Philip H
Let me establish a few things about downloading:
1. Some downloads are in winzip format that has to be unpackaged. I’d rather use my PC to download and unzip the download and then transfer it to my Palm device.
2.The new e-book readers like Kindle and Sony’s E-ink are capable of reading books but are not true PDA Personal Device assistants. They have mainly the E-book function. I believe the Kindle can download ordered books but you are stuck with that system. I think it is not DSL but something like a phone line that downloads books.
3.There are free e-books thru project Gutenberg. These books have no copywrite so technically they are free. One site many books has the classics and other non-copywrite books and only asks for donations. Microsoft has an e-reader which reads books on your computer. If you type in Oregon University Asian e-books they have free pamplets and other books from China, Japan and Korea using the microsoft e-book reader.

I download to my PC and then transfer to my PDA.
There are so many formats to download in and read that this is by far the easier method.
I have ebooks that are word, txt, pdf and lit files, far easier to sort on the desktop PC.
Suggestion by Blackbird
The Palm tx can. It comes with Wifile LT, which allows users to download files from the internet.
