Best PDA/Phone

Alright guys (and Webwench)since I live on the verge of senility I have decided I need a portable device to keep track of my appointments. Since I carry my phone with me it seems a natural to combine it with a PDA. Most important to me is excellent reception and battery life, next would be ease of use for noting appointments (can I link it to Outlook or some other scheduling software?), after that I would like bluetooth compatibility, mainly for the wireless earpiece. Any suggestions?
My current provider is Verizon, I guess I want to stay with them.
Sorry it's not political but thanks for the input.

RE: Best PDA/Phone

Is that a PDA or did you make up that word? Extremely technically challenged here[:D]

Try the Treo. I have it and I love it. It has everything. Camera, phone, PDA, Internet. It's all there. I even logg into AOL when on trips from it.

Always,

Verizon offers the Treo 650, which has upgraded its camera resolution and has bluetooth connectivity. I haven't checked if they also offer the newest iPaq phone. The Treo, with the Palm software is a bit bigger, but the extra size is actually a benefit for a soap bar shaped phone and I think the LCD is a bit more useable than the iPaq.
