Why do we get outselves into these discussons? :P It comes down to
what each of us want personally. But yet, I shall reply.
If I wanted a PocketPC sized device, I'd have one. But no matter the
resolution, the 3" screens on a PPC is mostly worthless to me. I use a
small computer for many things, including taking notes. I like to be able
to use a stylus to interact with the computer, and having a 3" screen-
regardless if the res is 320x240 or 640x480- is just to small to make it
practical. Heck, the way I write using CalliGrapher, there are a lot of
words that take up the entire width of the screen when the screen is in
the portrait orientation. If I was just going to use a PPC as a calendar
and contact list, a 3" screen wouldn't be a big deal.
...to each her own!
