The Zod…

My new PDA arrived today, a Tapwave Zodiac 1. The Zod runs PalmOS and thus is near 100% compatible with everything on my ailing Sony Clie. So far there are only two features I am missing from the Clie: voice memo and built-in remote. I probably won’t miss the voice memo very much, I hardly used it. The Clie remote control app was very nice, and shipped with pre-sets for almost every device in the house. I’ll have to try out OmniRemote when I get a chance, because I will find the Zod lacking without this. The unit will take a little getting used to, but it feels very comfortable, and aside from the left and right flippers (for gaming) along the top, the controls are convenient. The flippers keep getting in my way…


I ordered the Zod from Harmony Computers, and at the time of this writing, they still offer Zod1’s at $70 below list price. On Saturday, I logged in to check the order status and it said “partial ship, call for details. items shipped 1.” Of course, I just *knew* they shipped the SD card and that the Zod was on permanent backorder… I nearly dropped the phone when the rep told me on Monday that in fact it was the SD card on back order, to be filled Tuesday, and that the Zod was already on its way. 🙂
