Hi guys, I really need your help on this one. I am currently on my 6th PDA and I have got to say it the last 18 months have been terrible, nothing but issues one after the other, to the point where I have stopped using it's full capabilities and sometime struggle just to use it as a phone. In the past I have had an XDA 1 & 2, T-mobile MDA Compact 2,3 and now the dreaded 4. I really have lost my faith it's awful.

Over the years like most of us or needs have changed with regards to what we need a PDA to do for us. When looking for a PDA certain things have been a must for me, like Windows Mobile package. Others have been full internet not just mobile internet, size / weight was always a bone of contention and battery life has always been an issue.

During the past 18 months I have lost touch with PDA's completely, I have not been on any forum or done anything to further enhance the PDA's capabilities. My contract is up next week and need I PDA to reignite my enthusiam.

Size is no longer an issue for me and I quite like the idea of PDA's with slide out QWERTY keyboards for speed of typing, below is a list of features I "need" and would be "nice it have". Please could you suggest some PDA's out on the market currently or any others due out shortly which may meet my needs:

Needs
- Reliability! lol
- Good Battery Life
- Full Internet Browser with fast download speeds
- Sat Nav
- Activ Sync to my PC's microsoft outlook (unless there is another way of syncing diary & contacts)
- Large memory or extended memory (ie memory card slot)
- Larger Screen the better
- E-mail syncronisation

Nice to haves
- Full Windows Mobile (but viewer would be ok at a push)
- Decent Camera, again not essential
- MP3/4 player, music facility
- Radio

And that's about it really, hopefully I'm not asking for to much from a PDA. What do you guys think about slide out QWERTY keyboards?

Any help either on PDA's or current contract providers would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks for reading!
I think in Obi Wan Kenobi's own words I need to start to "use the force" again!

Cheers Guys

Hi,
My Windows Mobile Professional devices I use daily are the ATT Tilt with Windows Mobile 6.1 and ATT Fuze.

Both of these devices support all the features you wanted and have a slide out keyboard.

I'd look at the Touch Pro 2.

Sincerely,
