last used a jornada 520
      #13895 - 07/31/04 05:18 PM

im a bit lost with the enormous selection now avaliable.

i wasnt a handheld as light and thin as possible but the most important feature to me is the screen. im trying to decide between the palm T3 or the new VGA line of pocket PC's. i like the power of the new Dell's, but i think the screen lets it down. The toshiba 800 is too bulky.

do you think i should get the T3? im looking for something thats expandible with lots of accesseries and software. its going to be used for organisation, gps, mp3 and video playback, games. do you think i should wait for the new ASUS A730 (any idea when it will be hitting the UK), i hear its going to be good. the major advantage, to me, of the ASUS is the CF slot so i can use a microdrive.

i understand that palms dont require much processor power to run speadily. does any1 know how much faster a 520mhz pocketpc is over a 400mhz palm?

thanks for the help

The T3 is a great choice and competes easily with 520MHz Pocket PCs.

Other than the e805, no other VGA Pocket PCs have been released yet. The iPAQ 4705 will be out on August 26 in the US, and the ASUS VGA model will probably be out in early September.
