  • Mini Organizer for the StarTac Phone...

    Feb 8, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Compact, simple to configure, inexpensive
    Cons: Black & White, No Back light, Hard to read at night, limited options

    Summary: The clipOn Organizer is certainly a vintage style organizer. I would certainly not compare this to a Palm Pilot or any other item in a Palm Pilots class because the Organizer is limited to what it offers. Sure, it offers similar features to a Palm ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Smaller than your average date-book, syncs with PC, alarms, clock
    Cons: Cumbersome manual data entry, no back-light display

    Summary: For the longest time, I carried a paper date-book in my purse to mark down appointments, telephone numbers, etc. With our "electronic world", I started using my Outlook calendar more and more - and was transferring this info to my paper date book so I'd ... read more

  • Stand alone ONLY -don't attach

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Makes Phone feel better - adds more address to speed dialer
    Cons: Prevents vibrate option on phone - hard to use

    Summary: This was a nice idea.. I attached it to the phone and love the feel. It made the phone a lot better to hold on to. Then in the fine print - when used on Motorola Startac 7678 phone will NOT vibrate.. You must use the ring option. Not a ... read more

  • A basic PDA, just too basic

    Mar 26, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Size, dial-through, world time scheduler, price
    Cons: Still bulky, no backlight, feature light, incompatible with Digital CDMA, unintuitive interface

    Summary: This is a relatively old piece of equipment; I remember seeing it when it was brand new almost two years ago. When I saw it for sale from a wireless website for a low, low $35, I figured I couldn't lose. While I'll maintain the thing is worth ... read more

  • Overpriced and difficult to use

    Nov 23, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sync with PC and Startac style phone
    Cons: Very Expensive for what the device offers, difficult to use

    Summary: After purchasing my Motorola Timeport CDMA phone for my Sprint PCS service, I wanted something that could sync names and address for my phone. I immediately looked at the Motorola Startac Clipon Organizer, seeing it many times in ads in my local ... read more

  • Save your $$$ for a PALM!

    Nov 20, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nothing much
    Cons: Takes too much time.

    Summary: Don't waste your moola on this crud. It's like 200 some bucks and it's not worth it. It takes forever to write down a phone number or let alone a name. Sure, you can use a computer to put all the information in it, but then what's the point of holding ... read more

  • Hits the Mark

    Pros: Small, easy to use, works with StarTac
    Cons: Easily lost, lacks password protection

    Summary: I purchased the Clip-on Organizer with the hopes of using it with my StarTac... but this did not happen. I ended-up using it as a stand-alone PDA, but frequently left it in a suit pocket, in the ashtray, and in alternate laptop bags. The ... read more

  • not the end-all-be-all, but serves its purpose

    Sep 26, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: handy, easy to navigate, with excellent sync software
    Cons: slightly heavy, prone to surface scratches

    Summary: I won't bore the masses with another listing of features and functions, as other reviews do a fine job of that already. The Clip-On is a good product, no question, and it is true that compared to most full-fledged PDA's, it's a bit lightweight. ... read more

  • Great Idea, but too little too late Motorola

    Sep 20, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Portability, Convenience, PDA/PCS all in one.
    Cons: Too Expensive, no real features or frills other than calendar, bulky for a startac.

    Summary: The past five years has offered an explosion of new technology to the masses. The most incredible jump has been in the PDA market, without question. Every year, the PDAs seem to get more powerful, yet smaller at the same time. This trend has also been ... read more

    Aug 5, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: No need to carry phone/address book
    Cons: Adds significant amount of weight.

    Summary: I have one. Why? At first I thought it would be a nice gift to myself for pulling off a 4.0 in school. What happened when I got it? I was impressed. Although it can be a pain to enter information with the tiny keys joggling between letters and ... read more

  • No substitute for Palm

    Pros: Sleek
    Cons: No replacement for Palm Pilot

    Summary: This is a cool product for some (maybe even many) people, but didn't cut it for me because of a few poorly thought out design points. First let me describe my application: I carry a Palm Pilot and a StarTac phone. It's a real pain to look up a ... read more

    Pros: right there when you need it
    Cons: Have to load data on PC and transfer

    Summary: The Motorola StarTAC clipOn Organizer makes my life easier. For years I played with larger PDA's such as the Newton, but still went back to index cards. I just couldn't carry the thing around, I broke a couple by having them fall out of my lab coat ... read more

    Pros: none
    Cons: none

    Summary: although it doubles the startac size it actually makes the phone more ergonimical. the features are great and simple, however, inputing data is less than enjoyable. let me first say, it is not a touch-screen organizer, i get this question a lot at my job ... read more

    Pros: Portable/Attachable/Synchronization
    Cons: Poor visabilty in low light
