There are a number of reviews on the 'Net already about this much-anticipated device, and I won't claim to make yet another. Just some interesting observations from a week of ownership:
1) I have found only a single program (Skyscape 5-minute clinical consultant) that does not like OS 5. All others so far work like a charm, including LOTS of medical software.
2) While the OS itself really is not much different, the processor has really revolutionized the Palm handhelds. Example: using Tabers medical dictionary on my m505 was a chore, and looking up a word often took >30 seconds. Now I write in real time and get word lookups in 1-2 seconds.
3) My handwriting recognition (Graffiti) is MARKEDLY improved over the m505.
4) The screen is UNBELIEVABLE! Fantastic, useable under all lighting conditions.
5) The battery life is just fine. I do recharge nightly, but I use it a good 2 hours each day, with the backlight at 50% all the time, and rarely get to below a 70% charge.
6) The sliding design is very sturdy. Also, it just FEELS much better in my hands.
7) The D-pad is a huge improvement, and I think more than makes up for Sony's Jog Dial.
8) Voice recording feature is very nice.
9) Does not come with mp3 software built-in, though word is that Real will be releasing an mp3 player for Palm in the coming weeks that will be available free.
10) Only gripe is that Versamail STILL does not synch e-mail with my Mac...
11) Palm has all but said that this device will be OS6 upgradable, which you can't bank on from the Sony products.
Buy one, you will definitely not be disappointed.
