Help choosing a PDA for a physician

Hello, I'm a med student and will be starting rotations next year. I'd like to get a PDA or PDA/phone combo that can run all the medical programs and is relatively easy to use.

Thanks for your help

The 2 major platforms are PalmOS and Windows Mobile. Both are dead equal to me on ease of use. Both might run your program.

Which is the winner for you?

I have a pocket pc, however when i was loojing for a pda, i found that most doctors and other medical workers (forgive for my english) used palm os devices because they have more medical applications and a lot of them were free. I really don't know exactly if that is truth (or if the ones were only available for older palms), i guess you will have to look for some forums or reviews in google to see which one suits your needs.
