Tapwave Zodiac 2 (128mb) PALM PDA Now £149.97 - Zodiac 1 (32mb) £99.99

PCWorld and Dixons are selling the Zodiac 2 Palm based PDA for £164.99, which in my book is a bargain.

The funny thing is the lower model with 32mb is more expensive.

It's still the loveliest thing I've ever bought and I've had it six months. www.tapwave.com

I'm not sure if my affiliate link will time out the session?

A big thank you to Scottola

Ordered online late last night (or early this morning) from PC World. Ordered Duke Nukem Mobile with it for half price and it came to £149.99 for the Zodiac 2, £15 for the game and £4.99 delivery. I really wanted spy hunter because I have duke nukem mobile on my GBA AD SP. Anyhow managed to find a voucher code that gave me 5% off the total so Total price: £161.73

Anyway went into my local PC World today and picked up Zodiac 2, Spy Hunter and Cradle (rip off @ £15) for £166.48 after a bit of negotiation so well chuffed. This was after I cancelled my online order

I'm hoping for a bit of homebrew software to come though @ some stage as I'm already a keen GP32 owner.

The pros over the GP32 which cost me the same are 2 SD slots (instead of smartmedia limited to 128MB), pda fuction and a touch screen! The cons more locked down at the mo (limited homebrew) and doesn't use 2 aa's!

No probs

Here's a link to an earlier discussion with a few links to various sites.

The Zodiac 1 (32mb) is now £99.99.

It's got 2 SD slots that can be used for extra storage, so there's no particular worries about the amount of internal memory.

Code: 737700

Yeah - the accessories are reduced as well.
I was trying to get a case for mine (I agree, it's an awsome palmtop) but everywhere has sold out of what seems like every accessory for them.
Looks like they've hit a golden price-point.
