I have to admit it. It is true. I do have a sort of obsession with PDAs / Handheld computers. I don’t know why. I just do. I started off with my first PDA. A Palm III which I bought as an organiser and then discovered a huge world of software that you could run on the device.

I never really looked back after that.

I’ve had devices for most mobile platforms including Palm OS, Rex, Windows Mobile, iOS, and most recently Android.

So what do I do with these things? The short answer is a lot. I’ve been using devices like these for a long time now and used them for all sorts of things, from the basics like calendars to do lists and the like to making music with virtually all my PDAs and devices.

I especially like unusual uses or software for PDAs. Things like alternative operating systems and applications the provide alternative interfaces for a device.

At the moment I’m especially interested in DGOS and Android running on Palm OS.

I’m about to revive a couple of my older PDAs for music and on board development as well. I’ll be posting on my progress soon.
