Phone Book does have custom fields

Phone Book does have custom fields

You did a GREAT job in the recent issue of The HP Palmtop Paper comparing the new HP 300LX palmtop PC with the current 200LX. That was really a thorough piece of work that provides good insight as to what this new machine will really do.

While it may be a "nit," I'd like to point out a possible error. In the phone book analysis, you said custom fields are not available on the 200LX and the number of phone numbers is limited to four.

Since the phone book is really a database, which can be modified, the ability to create custom fields certainly exits. As for phone numbers, the same is true. My phone book currently has six, although I did have to modify the basic "shell" provided with the machine.

In the final analysis, the new HP 300LX does some nice things, but in my mind, the 200LX is a better machine. I'm staying put! Keep up the good work.
