    I just got this recently and I am very happy I made the decision to spend the cash. Yes the price tag is hefty but you get what you pay for. I read some reviews from handheld sites that said the weight and size were annoying. Now that it is in my hand, I can say that NEITHER are annoying. It weighs more than the typical palm and certainly is bigger, but as an engineer who is used to holding TI scientific calcs., it is nothing that disturbs me. It is roughly the same weight as my TI-86 and is about 25% shorter.Pros:The screen resolution is very crisp. As a matter of fact, the screen looks so good, you can decrease the brightness to 1/3 to improve battery life and it still looks fine. The sound that comes out of this little thing is quite clear as well. I love the fact that it can play music as well as play Flash and other movie files. You can also make voice recordings and they are pretty good. Also, the construction is superb…very solid and sturdy feel to it.The camera is a huge benefit since I will never be anywhere without one. For a handheld camera, it serves its purpose and then some. No, it will never get better pictures than my Minolta Dimage 7i but then again, I would never carry the 7i around everywhere. The camera lens is protected by a flip cover. Very thoughtful so the lense doesn’t get scratched.The cradle design is extremely ingenious…no more bulky cradles. It is a foldup easel style cradle which is very transportable. Hot syncing is very easy between my PC and this unit.I also love the fact there is a jog dial on the side that you can use to scroll between applications and select w/o having to use the stylus. This is useful for mass transportation users like myself.Cons:There are some design issues with this unit but nothing to go nuts about. The main thing is that there is a battery yo-yo effect when the flash is enabled in the camera. This is well documented in handheld website reviews and I assure you, this is a real issue as I am seeing it for myself. It seems that as soon as your flash is turned on, the battery remaining indicator takes a dip. Not a big deal when the battery is near full charge, but an issue when you get around say 50%. If the battery indicator dips too low, you cannot use the flash.I can live with this b/c I am not planning on snapping countless shots on this unit BUT not everyone may be in that boat. I also fully expect SONY to address this issue (looks like it is a power management issue with the software) but if they don’t, I will be very disappointed as it seems like it is a design flaw.Another small con I have is the stylus location. I don’t like the way it attaches to the side. I think that if I were clumsy, it would easily drop if I weren’t careful when I tried to snap it back into the unit.I want to amend my original review…I have stumbled upon one thing which is a little annoying but once again, something I can live with. You CANNOT play the recorded movie files to the TV. Yes, this is for real…I must say that SONY really didn’t put much thought here as most digicams that can record movie clips allow you to show both still images and movie clips on TV.All in all, I love this machine…very sleek and beautiful…very useful and at the same time fun as heck. I hope SONY addresses the battery yo-yo effect and maybe somehow upgrade a driver so I can show movie clips on the TV.

    The main reason I bought the Peg-NZ90 over other Palm OS5 devices was the 802.11b feature, which works great. I have had it for around a week now, and I find myself using it more than the palmIII that it replaced. The digital video is cool, and the Sony remote is a nice feature. I just bought the magicgate 256M memory stick and will throw some MP3s on it in the next few days. I haven’t used the bluetooth feature because I don’t have any bluetooth devices yet. The web browser, though pretty bare bones works surprisingly well and the graphic resolution is very high quality. This is the best Palm OS device currently available. Granted it is a toy, but a productive toy.One con: The battery flakes out a bit when using the camera, you can only get a couple shots off before it looks ike the battery is almost comletely depleted, but if you go to another application, the batter lookes fine again.

    Pros: Fast processor; built-in keyboard, Bluetooth, and 2-megapixel camera with flash; large, sharp display; removable battery; precise battery meter.Cons: Bulky; camera is slow to start up and shut down; no built-in Wi-Fi.Summary: Sony’s NZ90 is significant not because it’s going to be the world’s greatest handheld (though it might be) but because it raises the bar. A built-in 2 megapixel camera with flash, Bluetooth, mpeg movie record and playback, MP3 playback, voice recorder–these obviously are way beyond the basic to-do list/address book/calendar. If you buy an MP3 player, a 2MP camera, a voice recorder, and a color PDA, you may very well spend [a lot of money]. Having it all in one is nice. Sony’s not perfect; they need to kick the memory stick habit and support CF/SD cards, which are much cheaper and more versatile. As others point out, the onboard RAM seems a bit stingy, though PalmOS doesn’t require as much as PPC. Anyway, I’m excited to see this happening and I hope a bunch of other companies copy Sony. Competition is good for everyone!

    I had this PDA for almost two years now and it still works properly except that it’s internal memory falls short compared to other PDAs. Most of it’s people seems to complain it’s battery usage especially when operating cameras but if you make your backlit screen minimal as possible, then the camera will last longer even with the flash. I do that all the time and usually gets me 50 shots with flash if used continuosly without quitting; quitting so would make results for your battery life different. MP3 works great but you’ll need to format your mp3s to atrac3 using sony’s software since all it playback is atrac3. I also recommand that you get at least 256mb of merory stick pro for this one; that way you can backup lots of data in case your pda screws up and also to store some video clips, games, works, etc. If you want to playback mp3s, buy the standard magicgate merory stick fot it; only those can playback atrac3s. This pda can access most of webpages too as long as it doesn’t eat away too much of merory space. I hope this review helps some of those who wish to use it’s built-in camera very efficiently because I know I did.

    I recently bought this item, let me first tell you I own it. I was amazed when looking for info on this item at the number of people who rated it and did not even have one. Well, I have one and I can tell you, so far so great.This thing is wonderful. It is much better than I thougth it would be.It is fast and well put together.The best thing I like about it so far has been the support it comes with.I had difficulty getting music on memory stick and called support at 11:00 P.M. EST. and got through in less than 2 min.I called another time due to my own inability to get something to work got though in less than 2 min. and they were frinedly and helped right away.Overall the price is the only thing I have a problem with but you get so much.The camera and the video is nice as well and the flash actually works quite well.I love this thing and hope this review has helped you and God has blessed you!
