Do you want GPS?

In reply to: advise on buying PDA

The iPaq 6515a is $200 more expensive, runs an older version of Windows Mobile, and has less memory available for use, so it dogs the Treo 700w in every way except that it has an integrated GPS receiver. If you will use GPS a lot, the iPaq should get strong consideration, but if GPS isn't a factor the Treo 700w should be your choice without question.

Hope this helps,
John

GPS is not a big factor, just heard that that hp is coming out with a windows 5.0 mobile version then i guess it will compare to the treo 700w
