    size of an ipod (almost exact dimensions)

    windows mobile 2003 SE
    Intel Bulvdere Xscale 416mhz processor
    bluetooth 1.2
    1.3MP camera
    GSM/GPRS (currently only 900/1800/1900 is out, but 850/18/19 will be out in Jan.)
    2.8" nice and sharp lcd touchscreen
    battery life is class leading for a PDA-phone

    windows media player 10 + 2gb SD card = perfect for you

    dont bother with ipods they are no good your better buying a pda with mp3 capability it may cost you slightly more depending on which one you get but then you get a new pda as well as a music player in one rather than carrying two items

    well.. you can get an ipod which (depending what OS your on) can sync with your calanders and contacts and sutch, but has a slightly smaller screen.

    if you got a pda you could get one with a built-in mp3 player and than get media cards/sticks to put songs on the pda to listen to them, although this may cost more.

    overall i would reccomend the pda with mp3 capibilities mostly because of screen size.

    although one bad part about the pda is that usually they can only play mp3s when you might want to play mp4s, AAC, and other formats. choose carefully.

    I've never used a PDA before, do you think the PDA would have battery life long enough for listening to mp3's for maybe a few hours between charges? Let's say a middle range PDA would be bought?

    if they weren't good I doubt that 4.5 million of them would have been sold during the holiday quarter. ;)
