Yet another "Which should I buy"!
      06/16/04 09:41 PM

I have been using a Handspring Deluxe for the last 4 or 5 years. Main use is Ebooks via CSpotRun, SMS, calendar, phone book, a few games such as Bejeweled and some word/excel editing using Dataviz. Also Avantgo.
I'm trying to decide between a T3 or the Sony TH55.
The pros for the T3 as far as I can see: -
SD memory - same as my camera
landscape option - could be useful for ebooks and editing docs & spreadsheets
loads of accessories - like to use a fold up keyboard.

Pros for the TH55: -
Has 802.11 wi-fi as well as bluetooth
Better battery life
camera - although I won't be using this a huge amount, you never know when you need one!

I need some clarification on a couple of points.

I don't have a wi-fi card in my home PC. Would fitting one enable syncing and web surfing to be done through my PC's internet connection? I haven't got broadband yet but as soon as the exchange is done I'll get that straightaway.

Is wi-fi going to be of use without broadband?
I don't spend much time in coffee shops where I could use wi-fi - too busy trying to earn a living

I have a bluetooth phone so they could both be used with that - no problem.

I want to use the new PDA for listening to music. Do they both play MP3's from the memory card? Either of them have the edge on sound quality?

I would like to be able to record voice memos from meetings - any difference in the quality and length that can be recorded?

Final point - honest!
I will be adding on a bluetooth GPS navigation system. Is either the T3 of TH55 better with GPS? Would the landscape T3 be easier to see? Or would there be no difference?
Which would be easier to mount?

I hope that I'm not asking too many basic questions and that someone out there can help me. Incidentally, I'm in the UK and the best prices I've seen are ?233 for the T3 and ?270 for the TH55 so the price differential isn't huge.

Many thanks
