OK. I started using a Palm device before they even came out. When the specs of the Pilot 1000 were released with a photo, I resized the photo, printed it out, cut it out and taped it to a paper box I made to fit the dimensions. I held the result in my hand and said "This is going to be HUGE." I bought the Pilot 1000, then the Palm Pilot Personal (which I upgraded to Pro), Palm III, Palm IIIxe, Handspring Visor Deluxe (blue), IBM Workpad C3, Sony Clie 610N/V, Sony Clie SJ33, PalmOne Zire 71 and my current device, which I have had for a year now, the Sony Clie TH-55. Within the month I expect to trade it in for a Verizon Treo 650. That's ten (and soon to be eleven) Palm devices. I have owned and quickly sold Pocket PC's by HP, Uniden, Casio and NEC. Not a big fan of the PPC.

Since December 1997 I have been an avid Palm user and supporter. I have stuck with Palm through the good the bad and the Yankoski days.

Guess I will always be a Palm user as I believe it is still the best in spite of the path Palm so often embarks upon.

I'm new around here. Just stumbled across the site this morning.

I've been using a palm for around 18months.
I'd always wanted one and evenutally had a terrible experience with a cheap gift from a friend - An Oregon Scientific OsPro Elite - before I decided to get an older palm device from ebay.
I got a Palm IIIc (and got two because of the seller's mistake) and I fell in love with it immediately. I bought it accessories and lavished love on it until my parents actually began to question my mental state (even more than normal).

Just before christmas 2004 (like, 4:00pm Christmas Eve!) I decided I was ready to upgrade. I bought a brand new Zire 31 which was, and is, perfect for me as a mother/uni student and IT tutor. My next upgrade will be to a palm with hi-res, but right now I'm happy with my palm.

My 4 year old daughter has inherited one of my old palm IIIc's, and I use the other for word processing and monopoly.
