    Palm or Pocket PC

    What would you guys suggest for a PDA/REMOTE for the Squeezbox 2? Looking @ the Nokia 770, looks nice, but would rather have a more dual purpose. Been looking @ the Palm T|X, great looking screen, just wanted to know if anyone had experience using that as their remote? Any suggestions on a model of pocket pc that works well?

    I use a Sony Clie, which has a Palm OS, although Sony doesn't make it anymore. The screen is pretty large -- not much smaller than the Nokia. It works fine with the built-in browser and the handheld interface.

    I have used a Sony Clie TH-55 and a Palm Lifedrive to control my SB3... both work fine. Any of the reasonably recent PalmOS devices with a built in web browser should do the job.

    Hi there ... you may want to look at http://www.telcanto.com/description_slimclient.htm.

    From the website...

    TelCanto for SlimServer is a Pocket PC client program which communicates with Slim Devices' SlimServer via a wireless LAN connection, and allows you to browse the SlimServer database and play your digital music via Squeezebox, SLIMP3, SoftSqueeze and other SlimServer-compatible software players.

    I think the Lifedrive is a great PDA, but some users have complained of stability problems. The TX seems to have been better received, but lacks the 4GB hard drive and is only slightly cheaper than the Lifedrive now. Best to read the forums at Brighthand and decide for yourself...

    My wife has T|X, but I haven't tried using it to control the server yet. The screen is great, and battery life seems to be more than adequate.

    No idea. It has been asked before in the Ewe forums and answers were
    always pretty short: "Ewe is not supported on Palm". Strangely enough Ewe
    has a "skin" called Palm...
