The zire 72 is the newer version of the 71. Both are good organizers, and the 72 has bluetooth as Lisa mentions.

Just a few notes: some units of the zire 72 have had a problem with the paint on the case flaking (see ) but this is a minor thing.

Re the zire 71, some users have complained about screen cracking, but of course this shouldn't be an issue if you use it carefully.

By the way, have you considered the Sony TJ27? this is a palm powered PDA by Sony.
see the review on this site.

Otherwise, since the Zire 72 is the newer version, it may be better to purchase it vs the Zire 71, as you may get better support, and you may be able to find places to buy it easier..

Re: pricing, well pricewise if the difference is $100 then perhaps the 71 is better. You may consider checking ebay for better pricing..

As with all PDA's make sure you purchase from a reputed dealer or seller and get a warranty

Good Luck!
