I'm considering buying either an Ipaq 3670 or Casio Em500. I have never owned, nor really used a Pocket PC before, but have been reading about them recently.
Seems to me the Casio's main negative is the smallish 16mb RAM, but I figure an mmc RAM card can fix that, right? And of course, the CPU is slow compared to Ipaq.
The Ipaq seems pretty cool, especially the versatile display, good battery life & fast CPU, but the old control problem scares me a bit. Especially since I'm a gamer and MAMEce will probably be a favorite app for me.
Question: Exactly what is the Ipaq's control limitation? For example, let's say you're playing Galaga - you'd use the cross key to move, but to shoot you'd have to let go of the cross key? Or you can tap the screen to shoot? Is that the idea? But the Casio would control normally - you can use the cross key to move and the little buttons to shoot etc. like a normal game controller? Correct?
Question: Is the sound Ok on both? Using headphones, just as good? I've heard the Ipaq has better or louder sound...
Is there really an obvious choice here? Any thought or recommendations much appreciated!
(Also congrats to tekhmaster for the review in PocketPC magazine! I was just reading it today in Barnes & Nobles, and I was like, wow cool! :)
