OK, I did some more evaluation of rumors and known information and decided I just can’t give up the Phone Edition device since it really was made for a data centric person like myself. I also can’t see paying $650 for a PDA without phone functions and will let others get the hx4700 and then read their reviews:) I have narrowed a future device down to the iPAQ 6300 (if there is a version with 128MB RAM) and the Treo 610. I don’t think any other device will sway me at this point since the MPx display is really quite small and the keyboard is rather strange.
I cranked out two full reviews and 4 mini reviews in the last few days and am down to about 15 items left. I will be busy judging software for the Pocket PC Magazine Software Awards again in early August so I am trying to clean out some of my review queue.
