Resources: PDA Recommend

The PDA Recommend tool is a simple way to narrow down what devices might be right for you by specifying what you require a device to have.  No longer do you have to search through pages of specifications.

The recommend uses your input along with specifications of devices that are currently available (though some might have been recently discontinued but still available some places) to recommend devices for you to consider.  Please remember this is only a recommendation and you will receive a list of products to consider.  Devices that are listed meet your requirements.

If you have a preference on what kind of processor your device uses, select that here, though this will only factor into the results, no remove devices without that processor.
