pda's going bye bye what do we use now????

i am interested in a portable ballistics unit. but it looks like pda's are going to be like 8 tracks (going bye,bye) i am not ready to do/pay for a smart phone yet. what are our options. i know i can get a pda cheap but what if it breaks down? dell doesn't sell the axim anymore?? what are we going to use in the future?

If you are too cheap to buy a smart phone then you will just have to do without.

Re: pda's going bye bye what do we use now????

I've been searching for a solution for this also but haven't really found anything that you would consider budget minded.
I will not get on of these stupid smart phones, sorry to those who like them, it isn't practical for me in my area anyway and I don't run software that is compatible anyway, the closest I would get is a iTouch but the temp rating is not low enough for my hunting. I currently run an Axim 51 and I think I'll likely up grade sometime to the Trimble Recon or something similar.

What about an iPod Touch? Should run the same apps as the iPhone.

Some of these PPC PDA's are pretty cheap on ebay...there's quite a supply of used PPC's PDA's out there (typically reccomended over the Palm PDAs), and many of them are pretty cheap. I've purchased several off ebay over the years.
