I went to Best Buy this afternoon to try them all out first hand, and my decision really came down to one simple thing: Handwriting recognition.
The Pocket PC's did a better job of picking up my handwriting than the Palms did. (Yes, I am familiar with graffiti, and in fact fairly proficient with it, but I didn't have to bother writing in a "special" way for the iPAQ, for the most part.)
I paid $185, and it came with a leather case, some screen covers, and a few other goodies.
So. . . anyone written an LJ client for Pocket PC's? ;-)
