PDA went kaputt

Posted by GilaChess
Disaster!! I can't repair my faulty Ipaq 1940. The screen is dead for no reason. Anyway, it's a big blow to me as I can't carry on my "chess training". No more exercises, puzzles and sparring partner. Since getting a new PDA is too expensive I think I'll get a similiar 2nd hand model as a replacement for the time being. Already looking at an older PDA but has all the features I need for chess :- A Dell Axim X5. A big advantage is it's compact flash slot making it possible for me to take the pictures from my camera Compact Flash card and transfer the pictures directly into the PDA. Then, I could post pictures online using PDA WiFi card. This is convenient as then, I would not require the use of a PC. This is a big help to me when posting chess reports to Another plus is the battery life is double that of my previous Ipaq PDA. It's old and bulky by today's standard but I am not a gadget freak :)
