Just wondering what people thought on this subject.

Which Palm OS device would you consider to be the best suited for use in an educational environment?

Naturally points of view will depend on whether the devices are to be used by university students, school pupils, teachers, etc. But all points of views I think will be interesting along with any of the reasoning.

For me, in the Palm market there is not much competition since Sony left the market ,

Choice Zire 72
Best features/price at the moment.
MP3 player appeals to the students so gets them to carry the device.
Bluetooth offers potential of connection to other devices ie phones.
Camera can be useful and quality of images not bad.

No Wifi without an extra card but for me not a great loss. But its time Palm offered a Wifi enabled device.

Battery life. A few bugs (ie the security settings)
The paint peels off making them look a bit rough, but the new silver version seem  ok.
Its not as slim as the PDAs Sony used to make!!!!

Other Palms
Tungsten E is "ok" but a bit long in the tooth and there are rumours of a replacement Tunsten E soon.

I have to agree on the Palmone 72. With the camera, and Docs to go it is a great assessment tool. I peeled all the paint off mine and purchased an extra "skin" from skinit. It looks great.
