SubjectWhich is the best PDA for emulators/games? new Reply to this message

I'm looking at:

toshiba e740 (reportedly has some rollout issues)
jornada 568 (I like everything on it except it being canned)
ipaq 3850 (keypad is kinda mushy?)
ipaq 3950 (maybe I should wait, kind of pricey)

I know the maestro is good for games, but for business stuff I can't get it :(

Thanks everyone
coondog

Actually I find the joypad on the 568 a bit clicky, even though I like everything else about it.

iPAQ 3630 is slightly (very slightly) better in joypad design, but of course has the major problem that you can't press more than one direction+button and you can't[ even 'slide' from one joypad angle to another. So stupid - I think this was fixed in later iPAQs though.

I have read numerous reports that screen on ipaq 3950 is of very high quality. That is of utmost importance to me, and seeing how of all other pocket PCs, only older Casio models had really good screen, I would wait for that Ipaq's price drop.
