Forgot to answer your question about the 3700 buttons. I briefly owned one for awhile. I did not notice any offset changes to the button layout. The 3800 was their best chance to change anything (thankfully they didn't). Also I heard the 3700 was really the 3670 (?) 64 meg model with PocketPC2002 and some new software thrown in. Why I see 3700 compliant versions I do not know. If anything we should see 3800 upgrades based on what performance I am getting from some of these games.
