I never get extended warranties on anything. I haven't found them to be cost-effective.
On mobile electronics I always get them and have needed them quite often despite treating the stuff gently.

The Jetbook was the BEST example - device useless after 53 weeks - company useless - at least the warranty can be claimed.
And the JB is still shiny/clean/new looking with nary a scratch on it, but will not read.

Cost effective ? When I have the replacement JB in-hand I'll know for sure...

On a handheld though ? I think NOT, considering they haven't been sold for very long and using a teeny-tiny old monochrome Palm device does NOT count !!!
