Well, if you're as gadget-loving as I am, you gotta get one. A few things:
64bit color screen
Viewable in sunlight
PC card slot (yes yes yes) with a cf to pc card adaptor its the most versatile PocketPC yet
I borrowed back the iPaq I originally purchased 3 months ago (Sold it to a friend because it's button problem) and tested a few programs and games side by side, and the @migo actually seems faster.
Screen seems larger. May be an optical illusion, but it makes gameplay pretty enjoyable.
The 4 buttons in front PLUS the 8-way pad PLUS 5 more along the side make it really easy to use multi button emus like MAMECE.
Same size as the casio even with the built in PC card slot. Also, I know the iPaq supports PC cards, but the @migo has a removable main battery, which gives it an advantage on really long trips.
There's more, but my main impression is that it really rocks. I'm having more fun with it than I had with either my Casio or the iPaq.

Oh, yeah, speaking of fun, I took so long to respond to this because I am responding via the @migo, using the 3Com Airconnect 802.11b pcmcia card on my wireless network.

My casio could NEVER do that.
