Overall the Palm V is excellent, the design is great, it is light to carry and easily fits into the pocket so you can carry it around anywhere you like. The only worry I have it the price currently is very expensive (UK) and it is so small I worried about putting it in my pocket incase I lost it somewhere when I'm out. Easily the best Palm Organizer available at this moment in time.
