Two Roads Diverge for Three New Handhelds

The hardest thing about purchasing a PDA is deciding which one to purchase. Do you go with Microsoft’s Pocket PC or Palm (or Linux). Do you go with a sub $200 el-cheap or $500+ Mercedes Benz type one?

Ever since, it has been figuring out what other problems it can solve that might draw you to invest in fancier hardware. Color screens to display photos and graphics — say, maps of New York City’s sprawling subways or the District’s cryptic taxi zones — were one obvious addition, as was digital-music playback.
