PocketPC >> HP iPAQ hw6915 It's pretty cool, I'd say. The only problem is the lack of WM6
upgradability.

PocketPC >> HP iPAQ hw6915 Pretty much different from the e61i; the latter runs on Symbian.

The screen of the e61i is MUCH better than that of the hw6915, both
resolution-, compatibility- and outdoor visibility-wise. The operating
system of the hw6915 is, however, MUCH better because it has a LOT of
programs, unlike Symbian, even when you take the incompatible screen (much
fewer apps / games are there for the 240*240 screen of the hw6915 than for
traditional Windows Mobile screens) into account.

PocketPC >> HP iPAQ hw6915 Well, I wouldn't buy either of them.

If you want Symbian, go for the N95. It has an excellent screen outdoors -
much better than any WM device. Its OS isn't the best and has no
touchscreen, though.

If you want Windows Mobile touchscreen-enabled devices, go for, say, the HTC
Kaiser or Advantage, depending on whether you need VGA or not. If
touchscreen isn't needed, I'd get the S710.

Of course, tehse are all just some examples of top-of-the-line models. For
much cheaper, there're still pretty usable older and/or lower-end devices
too.

Kaiser is awesome yeah, still, I have to find it here in Croatia.
I think that could be my solution definitely.

Thanks a lot, this was a great help definitely,
