I have the new hp iPaq 1910...It's great. Currently I am using PocketMac (www.pocketmac.com) which is a joke but am waiting for The Missing Sync for PocketPC to be released which looks awesome...mounting your PocketPC in iTunes, iPhoto and all that just looks great.
I wish Apple would make a PDA. All of my PocketPC totin buddies say they'd buy one in a heartbeat
As one of my clients say: opinions are like ***holes, everyone's got one.
Just kidding. I've used both PPC and Palms extensively and I've decided that Palms are better for me
. I found that trying to cram full desktop computing into a handheld is not possible without giving up some pretty major stuff (functionality, ease of use, battery life). Plus, I don't like windows. Really. I hate it. And PPC 2002 is just windows. Uninstalling a program always yields stupid *.dll file crap and I don't want to have to deal with it.
Also, Palm apps are more plentiful, cheaper and use less RAM than PPC apps, in general. And PPC 2002 is butt slow. I couldn't handle it. And I was using a toshiba e740 with a 400mhz proc. Again, some of what PPC's could do is awesome, but Palm OS 5 levels the playing field somewhat. Add to that the fact that syncing with my mac is a breeze and I had to go with a palm (PocketMac, what I thought would make the process doable, is a complete and utter joke, btw. I had to use VPC to sync.). Of course, I'm extremely fickle when it comes to electronics, so we'll see what I'm saying in a month or so.... Again, it's a personal thing, but try both and see what you decide.
ps - alcimedes, what'd you decide on?
