they didn't have the Sony review yet...you can find it on Cnet, but the review looked good.
i'd say the sony is the better call based on what i've heard about them... not based on personal usage of either (although i'm a much bigger fan of the canon's) - but i'd also say you'll probably be happy with both. most people who want a basic p&s nowdays worry way too much.
i did play around for a few minutes with my friends sd1000 and like it. i really like my sd600 as well. the sony does have image stablization though - but it's not something i've needed up until this point.
