More gear to add to the shopping list
Today I broke down and bought a new PDA. I picked up a VX6600 from Verizon that is compatible with their "BROADBAND ACCESS/NATIONAL ACCESS" wireless internet and data service. Let me give you some details:
- For $45.00 per month I get unlimited data transfers
- The PDA connects via either high speed wireless in metro areas or what is about the equivalent of ISDN in other areas
- The PDA has built in MS Outlook, etc for e-mail
- Is compatible with my corporate VPN solution
- Brian Head has awesome Verizon signal\
- With a little bit of hacking, you can hook a laptop up to it and surf via broadband or higher speed internet anywhere Verizon has a tower.
So I take the PDA on the slopes with me and keep it wirelessly connected to my work's VPN solution so I can get my instant messages and e-mails. And all this for a wallet busting $300. Works as a Phone, PDA, Wireless broadband modem, and does all the e-mail, etc. over the high speed connection. Perfect for roadtrips so that you can check your e-mail or update your blog from right on the mountain.
Check it out from Verizon.
