Hi.
I'm in the market for a PDA.
I don't really no much about them, whats waht, and which is the best - thats why I'm asking you guys!
First, which brand do I go with? Palm, Sony? Ipaq???
And what OS - i've seen ones with Palm OS, and Pocket PC (is that a windows based version) which is better?

Also, the ones with wireless options - how do they work? And can you use them to connect to the net?

O, the ones that don't have a built in MP3 player, couldn't you just get software to play Mp3's?

I've been looking at the SJ22 CLIə Handheld PEG-SJ22, which looks around my price range and requirements.

I'm sure I'll have more q's - but really i just need some thoughts and opinions to get me on the right track (eg - which OS to go with)

Thanks

O - and another quick question, how long do the batteries last on PDA's?
Are they like Laptops and last a few hours, or do they last longer than this?

Thanks
