I'm having a lot of trouble finding a PDA for college.

I'm looking for a PDA that:
Uses Windows Mobile
Has a large battery life (this has become a huge problem)
Has a decent amount of power and storage
Has bluetooth and Wifi
Inexpensive... I'm poor. (also a huge problem)

Does anyone know what I should get?

I'm looking into the HP iPAQs and Dell Axims mostly, but I am open to anything at this point.

I think I'll put a poll up for the one's I'm considering anyway. If you have another suggestion let me know.

great reviews so you can see how things stack up. There's not much difference between WM2003 and WM2003SE, so consider getting a slightly older WM2003 pda if you can find a good deal

The Axim X50 comes with a free upgrade to Windows Mobile 5.0

I don't think they could handle the 60 pointers. Who cares though. If they made the download, I'd run it on mine....

Whichever PDA you choose, make sure to get a qwerty keyboard for it. It saves a ton of time when you want to take notes in class.

I'm looking into buying the Stowaway Bluetooth Keyboard. Its supposed to be pretty tiny, about the size of the PDA itself. Anyone ever use it?

i have a Axim x50v and love it to death. for the money it can't be beat. You get full 640x480 resolution which means you can pretty much view an entire website in landscape mode which kicks ass and that can't be done with alot of PDAs. also, it's got a pretty good video accelerator so you can put DVDs on a compact flash card and watch them at 30 fps on like 320 x 240 res. The battery time is a bit shady though, i get like 2.5 hours listening to mp3s only and like 1.75 hours with wireless and everything on. I do have the small battery though. I still give it a 9 out of 10.
