Hi there,

I would strongly suggest you go for 5550.

5550 has the newest OS, Pocket PC 2003/Windows Mobile 2003 and have been re-written for better connectivity support. It has included infrared, bluetooth and wireless lan.

5450 has PPC2002 and requires a ROM update/patch to be able to use Wireless LAN properly.

However, if you want to connect to the internet via dialup, you can either use the bluetooth dialup with the bluetooth mobile phone, expensive:-), or use a CF/PCMCIA modem, but require a PCMCIA/CF jacket. Both model use the same one.

Good luck in the shopping,
Paul

If you need flexibility, I would recommend the ipaq 2215, it has the same OS as the 5555 but it has a CF slot and you could buy a CF wireless lan card for the difference in price.

the SPRINTPCS CF card for $179 a bit high, and who knows what the service cost will be and/or a CF wired Modem card for a lot less and you don't have to buy the sleeve.

I would also consider a mobile pda but I don't know enough about them to recommend any.


Good luck
