Eric Mack is debating whether to take the Windows Mobile route. I wrote an entry in his comments but thought I would repeat it here, as it deals with the direction I have gone in since getting my Axim and why I didn't go for a Windows Mobile phone recently. (I repeat it here with my original typos).
Is it time to switch to the Windows Mobile Platform?
Eric, I have no experience of palm but am a Dell Axim x51v user.
I came to Pocket PCs once WM5 gave persistant storage.
I have successfully used HotSpotVPN 1 as my VPN on the Axim (though their site instructions are a little dated and needed slight tweaking).
Personally, now Dell have finished with the Axim I would wait a little for a choice of Windows Mobile 6 devices. I feel sure they will give more options, especially in relation to things like Vista and it's new synching suite for mobile PCs.
Personally I have gone the split devices route - separate pda & phone.
Apart from my ThinkPad x60s notebook for desk type work, I carry the Axim x51v for note taking, using OneNote 2007 mobile client & also PhatNotes, using Calligrapher for handwriting recognition, (I can write more efficiently than type - especially in cramped or in a rush); I do have a Stowaway BT keyboard I can use - fits plane/train seat trays.
I use a Nokia N95 for photography (including whiteboards for OCR) and for phone/calender (though the Axim also syncs back to Outlook so all devices have my calendar).
