Beyond3D heeft een vergelijking van de Plam V en Palm IIIx online gezet:
I really like the design of the Palm, it's easily portable and both have good styling. Out of two I personally prefer the V, but each person will have their own reasons to decide which is the best. The Palm Pilots are excellently designed and fast. Not having to wait for a PDA to boot-up should not be seen as desirable, it should be essential and 3Com have covered that.
The range of applications available for the Palm platform is astounding, if you want a specific program, then it probably exists. The drawback is, because of the format of the Palm console applications are basic, functional but basic.
As a PDA the Palm platform excels, just don't expect it to make coffee for you, a PDA is what you get, nothing more, nothing less. The reason for this is the choice of PalmOS over something like WinCE, but this eliminates the boot-up time and allows the Palm to be faster in operation than any of it's competitors. There are downsides to the platform though. Don't expect it to do anything too complex, you can take notes, but you can't write Word documents.
