4Compared to Palm TX
By R. Songer
My previous PDA was a 4 + year old Palm TX, so this review will largely focus on comparisons between that device and the HP 211.

General Observations:
A bit bigger and somewhat heavier than the Palm.
Seems well constructed and is nice-looking. I notice many reviewers rave about the screen, but to me it didn't seem noticeably better than the Palm. I didn't care for the case that came with it. The Palm had a cover over the screen that could easily be flipped open or shut and left me with something still slim enough to carry in a shirt pocket. The 211 came with a very close fitting case from which it cannot be easily extracted. It is nicer looking, but I lost the stylus the first day, due to the way you have to hold the PDA and pull on it to extract it. I have since replaced this with a Boxwave cover with magnetic clasp. But too bulky and heavy now to carry in my shirt.

Faults:
- transition from portrait to landscape mode is slower than the Palm. You have to hold a button down for a few seconds, whereas the Palm only needed a single tap on an icon.
- Documents are much slower to open or close than in the Palm. Also the Palm would remember my location when I closed a doc. The 211 always opens it at the beginning; so for long documents, it is a pain to find where you left off. Also in the palm, I could put book marks to easily find important sections in a long document; can't do that with the 211.
- In the Solitaire game, which I play a lot, the cards seem a bit smaller and less distinct than on the Palm.
- On the Palm, I could encrypt a single note; handy for storing credit card numbers and so on. Can't do that on the 211, although you can lock the entire device. This is a nuisance, so I had to figure out an alternative method of securing that type of information.
- On the Palm, if I want to do a picture slide show, the orientation changed automatically as needed for each picture. The 211 doesn't do that, so if you start in landscape mode and come to a portrait-type picture, it will be displayed quite small. Also, the device doesn't seem to recognize that it's being used during a slide show, so it turns off after whatever time limit you have set for auto-off. Then you have to turn it back on, navigate back to the pics, find your spot again, etc.

Good Stuff:
- Love the chime for calendar reminders. Pleasant sound and gradually gets louder. I use this now for my alarm clock, as it is not jarring to wake up to like a typical alarm clock.
- Voice recorder. The Palm didn't have one. However, you have to hold the mike pretty close to your mouth if you want a decent recording. This wouldn't work out well if you wanted to record a meeting.
- Game "Bubble Breaker." A screen full of different colored bubbles. Find 2 or more touching and double tap to remove them. The remaining bubbles above drop down. Get larger groups of same color bubbles together before removing and increase your score.
- Removable battery. But the Palm battery (not removable) gave very good service the entire time I had it.
- Voice recorder. I mention this twice because of a really nifty feature: you can append a voice recording to a note. This can be very useful, for example: I see a recipe I like but don't want to type the whole thing into my PDA. I can type a very short note, like "chicken pie" and then record the recipe as an attachment to that note. So later, I just look up "chicken pie" and then listen to the recipe.

I will not comment on features like the wireless, memory cards and so on, as others have done so more ably than I.
