i am not sure if any is better than the other. they cater to different market preferences.

i personally prefer hp.
i dont like small-screen pdas from 02 or built-in keyboard models from treo because they defeat the function-over-form purpose.

u need to know which will suit u better.. if ur an avid windows user but never in ur life played around with any pda, first choose the os, in this case choose the ones with windows mobile. palm, treo, use palm OS except for the newer models. there's also symbian OS, that's where a lot of nokia pda phone models come in.

then.. do u want only a pda or do you want a pda phone...

next, the speed of the processor

then, whether it has wifi, camera, what type of card slot

if u dun care any of the above also dun care about the cost, go for the lates nokia pda phone.. it's been awarded by my trusted gadget magazine, T3 as the best pda phone around.i forgot the model .. I'll check back later. atom is good too.. a bit old la.
if u want fun and funky, go for treo
i personally would love to get myself a treo but I'm very depended on windows mobile so i really dun like palm's and symbian's interface.

> Embedded SiRF Star III chipset, TMC function supported* (*subject to change
by region)
> Speakerphone function
> Call Recognition function provides the individual photo from the entry of
 your contact for immediate recognition


Compelling multimedia experience Image Captures Anywhere, Anytime
> Built-in 2.0 megapixels digital camera with zoom function => pretty good digital camera
> Support video recording
> Multimedia features (AMR,AWB,MIDI,MMF,RMI,AAC,3GP, AVI)
> 192 Polyphony, MIDI, WAV, MP3, WMA, AMR, AWB, MMF, RMI, AAC Ringtones
> Send/receive pictures, graphics, and vCard
> Play on-line games
> Downloadable today screens, wav ring tones and games



Touching Features
> Windows Mobile 5.0™ software for Pocket PCs
> GSM/EDGE Quad-band: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz

yup, it sure is....especially the Safe Boot function, it saved me from a whole contact backup to my PDA previously

actually there should be more shops selling PDA in Ipoh, and more support...i bought Glofiish in KL and asked if the shopowner wants to open a branch in Ipoh, they say maybe 5 years later... :-(

check this forum:

no opportunity in Ipoh it seems...
