In the Market for a HandHeld

Morning to Each, I am in the market for a pda, trouble is, don't want to spend too much, i really just need a basic, budget model.

I have had palms in the past, and want to try Windows mobile (or Pocket PC as it was) so palms and Sony Clie's are out, I was thinking of between the following two budget models

HP iPaq rz1710 or Dell Axim x30 312mhz

does anyone have any thoughts, reviews or recommendations? Wi Fi and/or Bluetooth are not necessary.

cheers!

  • Morning Coconuts!

    Just received my Axim x30 and cradle for £107 inc delivery. Seriously, that's a saving of around £70 on the new model, but with the cradle which you don't get with this model normally!

    You are a saint!! Thanks ever so much, really prompt service, they asked me to email them proof of address, which i did, and the goods arrived today!!

    anyway, cheers again!
