Pocket PC vs Palm

  1. Jan 28, 2004 #1
    Just wondering, what device do you prefer?

    Pocket PCs, which feature more but are thicker, heavier and drain more battery.

    Palm OS based devices offer a lot too, and are slimmer with more battery-life. It does less PC stuff though, since it isn't based on Windows (that can be good though).

    I personally, prefer Palm.

    How about you?

    kenikov, Have you tried out the Zaurus yet? I think they it is much better than palms and pocket pcs. It also runs Linux.

    I've heard a lot about the Zaurus, but I'm not a big fan of SHARP electronics.

    I would much rather grab a PPC running windows over that.

    I do have an iPod actually.

    Cool link. I might bring it up at a Mac forum.

    They might not look too kindly on it though.
