Well if you purchase a PDA that has built in bluetooth you can actually connect to a cellphone that has bluetooth and use GPRS like that.

The GPRS modules are actually quite expensive and bulky. They are also Compact Flash, which limits which PDA you can use. I tested a Dell Axim x50 with the GPRS card. The unit will not fit in a case with the card and it has to be manually connected. It is not very practical unless it is for sporadic use. If you are wanting to stay up to date with emal and such, I would not suggest this approach.

Depending on your budget you might want to get the 6315 or wait for the 6500. The 6500 is a big improvement over the 6315 and includes GPS. I used the my iPAQ 4350 with my bluettoth phone for the longest time and it worked great. Although I would be ahard pressed to go back to that since getting the 6315 and 6500. The convienece of one device is too great.

So I chose to go for the 4700, as I didn’t want a PDA/Phone combo. Ithen use a CF GPRS/GSM card with it when I want to connect to the internet and I’m not within a wireless network. This suits me as I use the GPRS connection just occassionally, and I like to always carry a small lightweight cell phone.
