    New PPC-6601 User

    i should be getting my ppc-6601 today or tomorrow. for those that said sprint is sold out, not sure where y'all got that idea. in fact...let me stop. watch mine not come. then i have another fall out with sprint. but i was told it's been shipped.

    anyway...i got a treo650 now. i want to be able to do:

    - all my schedules,
    - dates,
    - reminders,
    - contacts,
    - phone,
    - email,
    - AIM/IM/YAHOO,
    - internet,
    - looking at pics (and video soon),
    - a couple of games (nothing too serious...probably somethign to play old Sierra games...or something y'all can recommend, got the PSP coming soon...so you know),
    - SMS,
    - probably remote connecting to other machines
    - pdf reader to study for my certifications.
    - bluetooth headset (eventually)

    About 90% of that you can do out of the box. It's when the basic funtionality of the built in apps starts lacking for your needs that you need to look for add-on software.

    Get the Adobe Acrobat reader from Adobe.com.

    I'm sure someone can suggest an IM client, but I don't use AIM much off the PPC (though MSN is pre-installed), so I can't.

    There's a big thread on BT Headsets. You should be able to find it on the first page or two of this forum.

    AIM/IM/Yahoo I use this:

    For video (divx et al), I use betaplayer.
    http://betaplayer.corecodec.org/

    Those are the easy suggestions I can offer at the moment.

    Have fun!
