They have some PDA capabilities thanks to, if my memory is correct, GPE (or something similar), but they were *not* intended as PDAs. You can probably plow a field with a Ferrari, but it would be better to use a tractor. And in a decade, Ferraris will still be mediocre tools to plow fields.
<br><br>I personally have no use <span style="text-decoration: underline;">whatsoever</span> for "PDA applications" and I am quite happy that Nokia did not even try to go down that road. They created a fantastic piece of hardware and a rather good OS to run it. Then they added some applications and the rest is up to us, the community. And it seems that the community does not have PDA functionality high up its list of priorities and I understand that.
<br><br>I do not mean to be critical, but you might stick to Palm for PDA like applications and not expect Internet Tablets to ever even try to match them.<br><br>Cheers!<br><br>Andrei<br>
