WelchWrite Holiday Gift Guide #1
Welcome to the first installment of the WelchWrite Holiday Gift Guide. Each day I will post a new gift recommendation for the favorite high-tech geeks on your shopping list.
Today we strat our list with the Palm TX handheld, the latest entry in a long line of handheld computers from Palm, Inc.
My venerable Treo 90 has developed screen problems over the last few months, so it is about time to replace it. I don't normally carry a laptop with me when I travel or work at a client's site. My current laptop is way to large to be comfortable and 99% of the information I need can be contained in my Treo. That said, it would be nice to be able to receive email and browse the web when I am out, yet still near a Wi-Fi access point. Since many of my clients have wireless routers, this would be a great way to keep up with my email, even when I am away from the office. Sure, I could upgrade to a Blackberry, but since I would use other features more than the email, it seem a bit pricey for my needs.
