Pocket PC Vs Palm: What to Choose

An interesting article discuss this problem: Pocket PC Vs Palm – What to Choose ?. The writer is trying to find the advantages and disadvantages of each handheld platform. They write:

If you are after gaming, multimedia, good WiFi+Bluetooth support, a lot of accessories and versatility, go with Pocket PC.
If you are after small and stylish devices with good battery life, simple interface and simple PIM apps, go with PalmOS.
There is room for both, however most modern or tech-oriented new PDA users are more likely to opt for PocketPC instead. In fact, PocketPC’s market share *growth* is bigger than Palm’s the last few years, but Palm is still ahead in overall market share. This is changing rapidly though, especially with the many PocketPC phones that are scheduled to be shipped later this year.
