<strong>To continue, in a sense, the earlier discussion about Palm vs. Pocket PC, I'm also in the market for a handheld. Money isn't really an object, so I'm looking at getting the best thing that I can. While I like the look of the new Tanstung from Palm, the UI and software doesn;t look, at least, any different from what has come before, while the likes of the iPaq look much more interesting and advanced.
Well, I'm now on record as saying that the Toshiba e740 is the best handheld out there. It's packed with features, is slim, costs less than the iPaq's and has decent battery life. The Palm OS handhelds: they haven't changed appreciably in years. Input is the same, memory limitations and multi-media capabilities are the same. Nothing spectular there except for one first: a Palm OS device that more expensive than the majority of PPC devices. The Tungsten is overrated. Wait for Palm OS 6 before getting one. Go to the <a href="http://discussion.brighthand.com/

Basically I'd appreciate some advice, but most importantly of all - do you think iSync support will be extended beyond Palm devices to handhelds running Pocket PC?</strong><hr></blockquote>
Unfortunately, this will not happen any time soon. There's pocketmac.net that is promising a Jaguar version of their software that supposed to have iSync/iCal support, but I wouldn't hold your breath for it. Basically, I've decided since using a newt 2100 for a while, that the handheld needs to stand on its own and not be tethered to a computer for things. Sure it's a pain to have to enter things twice, but would you really? I've got my PPC with me all the time and only occasionally am I sitting at my computer without it. My 2¢.
