    I am wanting a a pocket PC/PDA type device

    I would like it to do the following
    browse the web via WiFi and local hotspots
    have a calander that can synch up with my computer
    play MP3's
    color display.

    kinda cool but not needed
    univeral remote functions (IR port)
    be my cell phone (I have tmobile)
    - if cell phone, having a built in camera would be handy
    the cheaper the better

    EDIT
    i like the Dell Axim X30 for overall performace/price
    and i like the new Tmobile Ipaq for the built in phone, but it is very pricey for it's performance

    well for your needs, I would recommend the ipaq first (having an all in one device is awesome, plus you can always swap out the sim card to your regular phone if you have to) and then the Axim X30 mid or high next. The ipaq, altho slower, offers the cellular chip which is awesome. I would also recommend the ipaq 4355 or 4155 if you need a keyboard (former) or tiny size (latter). All have wifi and bluetooth.

    i was looking around last night and teh Dell X30 looks really good.
    and is 200 bucks cheaper than the new Tmobile Ipaq

    also, how easy are the non-keyboard pocket pc's to use?

    it is cheaper cuz it doesn't have the GSM/GPRS chip in it that also makes the iPAQ 6315 a phone...

    Anyways, not having a keyboard doesn't mean it is harder to use, it just takes longer to get used to. However, I have now had a PPC with a built in thumbboard and although i won't say that I will never go back to one without one, I will say that it would be a big change that would only happen if the PPC had a lot more to offer me.
