    I need some help. I want to buy a 270 but I need to be convinced 1)why not a Sony CLIE PEG-NR70V
    2)why stick to PalmOS and not a Pocket PC ?

    Simply because NR70V is not communicant ! It's just a multimedia PDA without GSM feature.
    It's the same for all PPC except XDA, a mmO2's PDA.(XDA. The problem is XDA is just available in UK, Ireland, Germany and Netherland.

    To summarise: that depends on what you want to do with your PDA.
    - You want to phone with your PDA ? => choose a Treo
    - You want to listen music => choose NR70V
    - You are lucky to live in UK, Ireland, Germany or Netherland => choose XDA if you prefer a Microsoft environment with Word, Excel, IE, etc... But know that there are more thousands app for Palm but just some hundreds for PPC.

    Speaking as someone who lives in the UK and considered both the Treo 270 and the XDA, here was my perspective:

    I've always had keyboard-based PDAs -- various Psions, then the Nokia 9110 and 9210. I simply couldn't get on with Graffiti and its various imitators, and even if they perfected handwriting recognition I can type faster than I can write, even on a PDA-size keyboard.

    When I heard about the Treo, I thought "nah -- PalmOS, Graffiti, ugh". Then I saw the thing. Speaking as someone who always liked the Nokia communicators, I fell in love immediately. This was the design that the Nokias SHOULD have been.

    As someone new to PalmOS, once they'd attached a keyboard to it, I found myself impressed with its simplicity and speed. On a PDA, after all, you don't need all the baggage you get on a PC. Pocket PC seems to have gone the other way.

    Plus it's not only the best PDA I've had, it's the best phone I've had. In use as a phone it just FITS.

    The XDA -- well, it's got no keyboard, and it's Pocket PC, plus it isn't nearly as good a phone as the Treo, IMO.

    Now if Psion would produce a Treo look-alike with Symbian/EPOC as the OS, I'd be a happy bunny indeed

    I have both a NR70V and a Treo 270 and I must say that the Cam and the AV Remotecontroller are nice feat. the MP3 player too but do you realy need them? I tooked around 250 Pic and then never again it´s nice to get the NR70V out of the box and test all it´s feat. but after a while you will be sick of open it turn the screen around take a pic and close it agin that is why i want to sell my NR70V! And it is also very BIG! I would recomand the Treo couse it´s realy very small and light and you have the GSM feat wich you will use a thousend times oftener then the clié cam or the Remotecontroll! What I realy miss is the MP3 Player! But that sould not bee a Problem
    Slower than my NR70 was but i love my Treo 270......
