Sony Clie NX73v...works pretty good for now!

Just wanted to come in and mention I found a complete in pristine condition NX73v this last week at a Thrift Store. I paid a fair amount but it had everything...the PDA with it's stow-n-go stylus, the cradle with cradle stylus, 128MB MS card, all the cords and all the doco....but like I say it was a bit pricey...$15.95+tax....

Did I pay too much?

hehehehehehe...sorry, just bragging...A LOT....

This is my first PDA, and I am an old time PC guy...but never ever saw a true need for one. Until it became too hard for me to hold a book in my hands...

I installed Mobipocket and have d/l'd a few books from Baen to see how well reading will work...it is GREAT so far because it has a backlight and I can read in bed and not bug my better half.

I am getting just about 3-hours battery life but have ordered a new battery. Next I'll add a CF wifi card and should be good to go with our muni wifi as there is a somewhat usable web browser built in...

But my real motivation was ebook reader until I can get a decent simple e-ink device.

Anyway, I wanted to pass a long that is someone finds a good deal on this PDA (it's color btw) it's pretty danged impressive running Mobipocket for Palm OS 5.x. I would say that any price under about $75 a decent price. Over that ya might as well consider the eBookwise device for about $125.

OK, back to doing the NY Times Sunday crossword on my new toy! hehehehe....
