Some might say that it depends what you use your PDA for. If, for example,
what you are interested in is games, videos and a Windows environment, then
WinCE might be okay.

When you want to handle data reliably and quickly, nothing beats the Palm. I
might as well add that the new models offer nothing more, in purely
practical terms, than the M500 series.

It all depends, of course. Some people have patience to write E-mails using
Graffiti or browsing the net on a 320x480 display.
