Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

The NX70V Clié is Sony's first PDA to support Palm OS 5 and packs a huge range of multimedia features into its relatively small casing. There is a digital camera with a swivel lens that can take still and moving images, the former in resolutions up to 640 x 480. There is a tool for capturing voice note and there's Clié RMC, which turns your Clié into an infra-red remote control for your TV, video player, DVD player or other device. Add the AudioPlayer for MP3 and ATRAC3 playback and Movie Player for looking at digital movies, and you've got quite a multimedia bundle.

The lid flips up to reveal a screen and a neat and usable thumb pad, then swivels round and lays down to cover the thumb pad and offer a tablet-style screen. Applications can remove the graffiti area and make use of an area 320 pixels wide and 480 pixels deep. A large slot on the back of the casing can accommodate Sony's own 802.11b wireless networking card, and Sony even provides a Web browser in case you want to use your network for this activity.

The Memory Stick slot will come in handy for storing digital images and music, and the Intel PXA 250 200 MHz processor will get plenty of exercise. The Clié NX70V is a little on the large side--you'll need a fairly deep pocket to accommodate it. Its battery life, at 10 hours of average use, may seem to deplete fairly quickly if you make use of all the multimedia on offer. But it is an excellent showcase if you want to see what the latest version of the Palm operating system can support. --Sandra Vogel

I have had the opportunity to own many PDAs but the last Palm OS compatible device I owned was a Palm IIIc which was the first colour Palm. I have also owned no less than four Windows powered devices from a range of manufacturers over the years - this machine really beats them all.
The Sony PEG-NX70V follows the design of it's predecessor, the NR70V but sports some major improvements:
- XScale 200MHz CPU
- New Palm OS 5
- Cool new Sony user interface
- Wireless network capability
As well as a much improved digital camera which also records live video clips. This is in addition to MS-Office compatibility, MP3, Flash compatibility, Sony TV/DVD/Video remote control and the standard Palm organiser applications.
Don't forget, a memory stick is a must, and I would seriously recommend getting 128MB at the time of purchase - movies and music will use it!
Using the Sony jogwheel, you can select and open application single handed using the new improved user interface which I found more appealing than any other PDA interface, but for traditionalists, the original menu screen can be selected.
The new processor really adds a new level of usage to the Clie range, applications must specifically written for the new processor to take full advantage of it's abilities but older applications do run well using a built-in emulator. If you rely on old software, you will notice it's faster but not too fast, it seems the emulator tries to keep the speed in check.
The Wi-Fi wireless networking feature requires an add-on card which plugs into a special compact flash-like slot on top of the machine, I personally would never use it. But it would allow full internet browsing and email use however.

This product has truly changed my day to day life. Being a working student I feel that the possibility of having a device that is EASY to use, neat and compact where I can have my business notes / meeting notes, personal applications / games, lecture notes and telephone contact details all in one place is already amazing. Add to that I can have my mp3's and also a voice recording functionality - well what can i say. All the data is safe since if "accidently" loose it all - resysncronise and presto back in business.
If you (like me) prefer a keyboard than this is the tool for you it has it right there with it..... great.
During lectures / meetings - take notes.
While relaxing - listen to music or play games
While working - have your diary / contacts
While thinking - talk to it to take notes
While reading - install ebooks
While sightseeing - take those memories with you to share
While socialising - impress your friends :)
Its all included in this one item!
It is fast enough to be your tool that goes where you go and compact enough to fit in your pocket.
Though the price is not the lowest on the market - the difference in the price is well worth it for all the added features you get.
Thanks a million to all those that devloped the item that is like my keys - never leave home without them!!!

I purchased a Sony Clie just a few weeks ago and I have found this machine absolutely awesome in every respect. It never stops to amaze me, as everyday I find different functions I can do on it.
The screen quality is just stunning and camera and movie playback is a great feature. The quality of sound from both the movie and mp3 player using the earphones is just excellent. The pda is slim with large screen for excellent viewing and is well made, housed in a silver case with a rotating screen with neatly fitted camera for photos and movie taking.
You can extend the memory facilities by using a memory stick, a Sony Magicgate 256 MB can be used by downloading a patch off the internet. It has a 200MHZ processor which makes application viewing quick, the OS 5 operating system on the desk top is easy to get around and use. I would certainly recommend this machine to anyone who was thinking of purchasing a pda. It has everything one could need in a tiny hand held computer from storing and retrieving data, pictures & movie footage, even a remote control for your television, also voice recording for that important message taking. Sony has even included a built in keyboard, so you can type in your data. (Good Work Sony!)

Before purchasing this unit, I spent a lot of time researching the pros and cons of the Palm Operating System against Microsoft’s Pocket PC System. If you want simple, but powerful, then Palm OS is the definitely the better choice. The main reasons for this are; it is simpler to Navigate around the menus, you use less "taps" of the screen to carry out your tasks, it uses less memory than Pocket PC, and there are far more applications available. Pocket PC tries to mimic the Windows software that you would normally find on your PC. This is fine for a desktop/laptop PC, but for a handheld you need an operating system that is easier to use.
Once I had decided to buy a unit with Palm OS, I chose this Clie NX70V, and I have not been disappointed. The package comes with one CDROM with all the software that you need to get up and running. The Palm Desktop Software is simple and a joy to use. You can update your data between the Handheld and your PC by simply placing it into its cradle and pressing one button ... and within seconds the job is done. When you switch on the handheld it starts immediately (no loading time), and takes you back to where you were when you last switched it off. You can create and edit simple Microsoft Word and Excel documents using the supplied (Documents to Go) software, but don’t expect the full features you would get on a main PC.
The on-board camera is a useful addition, and you can add a picture to entries in the address book. You can also create photo albums and upload them to your main PC. The quality is not what you would get from a dedicated digital camera, but at 640x480 pixels, they are still at a very useable size and detail. The camera can also be used to record small movies, and play them back.
