I’ve decided to buy a PDA.
I’m getting rid of my Nokia E65. No, nothing wrong with the phone. Trust me, it’s great! But it is not serving my purpose, which is connectivity. By connectivity, I mean I want my emails, my calender, my files etc accessible to me 24/7. I spend 3 hrs in the car daily traveling to and fro from work. And on most days, I need to be wired. Having a laptop is ok but again, everytime I need internet on the move, I need to connect it to, yes, my cellphone (which doubles up as a modem). So I decided to modify this chain a bit. From Me -> Cellphone -> Laptop -> Work to Me -> Cellphone -> Work.
Easier said than done. This is going to have repercussions. For starters, big hole in my pocket (PDAs don’t come cheap!!!), angry wife (Imagine sending out a quotation while I am strolling leisurely in the park with my wife), no peace of mind (There’s always going to be some work). Maybe strained eyes too.
And, after much deliberation, I concluded that all of the above are manageable. Have a big commission check coming (Talk about counting my chickens before they hatch!), my wife is a sweetheart (She’ll understand) and about peace of mind, what’s that?? Oh, did somebody say strained eyes as well? Who?!
So, the next step, the million dollar question: Which one do I buy?!?
And this has been haunting me for over 2 weeks now!
