    My wife recently got a crackberry.

    I am getting her Sony PEG760c PDA (palm operating system).

    What do I need to do/know about using it for appraisals. I am currently using ACI 2009.

    What about sketching, I currently use Apex 4 v2.91 from ACI.

    I am hoping that it will eventually help speed up the process.

    Since it is on the Palm OS, I don't know of any software that will run on it.
    Mobile Sketch only runs on windows phones.

    several actually ...... i had the same views towards apple/iphone as you until my boss purchased mine ... now i wouldnt trade it for anything ... between work and my personal life i have an app for everything imaginable ... sure most pda's can do most of the same things via the web browser, but the interface and ease of use for everything on the iphone is soooo user friendly ... i just wish they made a mobile device with a better quality camera :/

    Shade the lens from the sun and always take two pictures for each shot just in case. I like the wide-angle lens and real flash of my Panasonic camera, but the phone can be used in a snap.

    Have you looked at any of the HTC phones? The current ones are better know as the Fuze (AT&T) or the Touch Pro on other networks.

    The best part about the Fuze for me is that I do NOT have to have a data plan to have the phone. I live in the sticks, and some areas I work don't even have cell service.
