I love almost anything that PALM makes; I hope they’re not going to desert the PALM platform and recognize windows cell, as I even have heard. Being the pioneer of PDAs enterprise (Personal Digital Assistant), I can certainly see that they have mastered their craft.

For those of you who have nonetheless no concept as to what I am speaking about, allow me to begin from the start. In this fast-paced global that we live in, we feature around a whole lot of stuff. We have our organizers, to-do list, notes, different published substances important for our jobs, pictures, different gadgets that make it possible to do our jobs. A PDA is honestly a small device that makes it viable to convey all of those stuff in a single little tool.

The TREO 680 isn’t always the best PDA; it’s also a cellular phone and a multi-media tool as nicely. It does the whole lot you want possible. (Probably the entirety, except make espresso) Well, at least for me. I do not know for some people; they could have some needs that might not be met using this tool.

Well, I am no longer going to speak about to you all the technical specifications or the capabilities of the standard as to why I love this gadget. Doing that would make simply replica what the PALM internet site is doing. If you want to realize the technical specification or the same old capabilities of the device, you definitely have to check out the PALM website.

What I am going to talk approximately here is how this system has helped me personally. Considering my busy lifestyle, you may absolutely see why I love my TREO 680.

1.) Integrated device – The tool has all I want. I use to hold a PDA (I graduated from paper organizers to electronic ones) and a mobile phone. But with this machine, I only bring one tool.

2.) Audio documents – When I become still a law pupil, I use this device to pay attention to review lectures using bar exam reviewers. If I become bored listening to them, I pay attention to music. It has a built-in music participant called iTunes that performs MP3 documents. If you do not like iTunes, you could download any other unfastened player; do a Google search. By the way, PALM OS packages have an extra than 25,000 plus lose programs. And that become ultimate 12 months after I ultimate checked. The number of free PALM OS applications should double through now.

3.) PDA capabilities – The PDA features are so simple. With simply one click on, I am brought to my calendar, contacts, assignment, and so forth. Some PDA-cellular telephones have very complicated PDA capabilities that you need to press such a lot of buttons to input an easy time table. But with this system, the whole thing is so easy and rapid. Add to the truth that this tool has a complete QWERTY “thumb” board. Instead of bringing a big organizer in the court docket once I timetable my hearings, I input the listening to dates electronically. Since I normally sync with my PC, there would be no issues if this would wander away (God forbid) as I actually have a back up in my PC. It’s simply one thing that a paper-primarily based organizer can in no way do.

4.) Documents viewer – I use this system to view nearly all sorts of document files. During my idle instances, like when I am looking forward to someone, I study a.Pdf record on internet advertising or an editorial on something else. The built-in DATAVIZ DOCUMENTS allow me to view Microsoft Word, Excel, and even electricity factor displays. You will set up the free Adobe Acrobat reader for PALM OS to study.Pdf files.

5.) Working – I use a PALM keyboard (Purchased separately) to kind of record. Personally, I think this is so much better than wearing a big pc with only about an hour or 2 of battery power. Although I seldom use this feature, I find it beneficial at times. I hoped that PALM could push its FOLEO product, the entire screen TREO partner, but they pulled it out of the market to my disappointment. Contrary to what the majority assume, I believe the FOLEO is the first-rate concept.

6.) Multimedia capabilities – Practicing law is the most effective part of what I do. I wear numerous hats at the equal time. I even have a component for indoors design. So once I go to homes with precise interior designs, I use this gadget to snap photographs. The constructed-in digicam may not reach 1 megapixel. Nevertheless, it serves my desires. I also can take movies with this. The capacity to shop photographs and movies is likewise one function that I love. I can display pals and spouse and children pix and films of my own family among different matters. Need to record a voice memo? No problem, this gadget permits you to report voice memos. Now and then, use this to document short lectures. When I became reviewing for the bar, I spent hours in a look at the middle. Sometimes I get bored analyzing all of those code provisions. My solution? Watch films via a loose software known as TCMP.

7.) Electronic books – The fashion nowadays is to submit in digital shape. (I don’t know if this is because of environmental motives or just technological sophistication) In truth, Amazon.Com has produced an e-book reader for $400.00. But why might I need to shell out $400.00 once I have this gadget? When I visit the church on Sundays and Wednesdays and concentrate on the pastor’s preaching, I just appeared it up inside the established digital Bible to discover the verses he is regarding. (I do this secretly, although due to the fact he may think that I am sending a text message) Watching Boston Legal and the actors are the use of words that you are not acquainted with? No trouble, I have a 140,000 + word dictionary mounted. It even has a word list. Being a Star Trek fan, I preserve track of all of the Star Trek episodes through a Star Trek episode database. I additionally have the database for the arena’s maximum wanted, among others. (Who is aware of I would possibly seize one jogging down the road and claim my praise cash) Need to check the Civil Code for a case? No problem. This device lets in me lets me get admission to my corals at the palm of my hand. No want to carry all of those thick corals round. I have all of my corals from the Administrative Code to the Tax reform act in my TREO. I can even view jurisprudence. I will talk more about how to put codes in your PDA – Cellphone in my next post. This is not handiest for TREO devices but all electronic gadgets as well.

8.) Internet Access – Internet access on the TREO 680 may not be as speedy as excessive pace DSL, but it is genuinely quicker than dial-up. You are probably asking why I would get the right to enter the internet on the sort of small tool. Well, I don’t do it regularly. I handiest do it for emergencies. Besides Smart GPRS (net get entry to for cellular phones inside the Philippines) expenses best P 10.00 every half-hour if I am not improper. There was I time when I become in Manila, and I turned into seeking out the cellphone variety of a sure establishment. I get the right to enter the internet thru, look for the established order, and voila! I was then given the establishment’s phone number. There also became one time once I changed into talking to a colleague approximately a sure case while we had been riding to northern Cebu. I had to persuade him that there was a positive jurisprudence concerning a be counted that we discussed. Since I do not forget the citation, but I need to examine the Supreme Court decision for him, I searched for the said jurisprudence through the net characteristic. I can also get entry to emails, but I only examined this function if possible. But I in no way used it nearly due to the fact I prefer studying my email on a laptop. But the use of this machine to ship and acquire e-mail messages is viable.
