Slightly off-topic: Do StrongARM-based PDAs *need* to be this expensive, or do the manufacturers just like to have large profit margins on them? I want a Palm, and I'm sort of tempted to wait for the StrongARM units, but there's no way I'd pay *that* much for a Palm.
My answer to that is always "Ebay". If you use the right merchant, there's nothing to fear - and unlike full box computers, you can clear the memory for a fresh start. I think StrongARMs themselves aren't that pricey, but when you have a machine that *can* play MP3s and support good graphics, manufacturers will put in color screens and sound playback that will up the cost.
I agree with Speed that the networking things are nice. Right now, I've only managed to log in using the USB cradle, but I've installed sshd on the thing, so I can visit it from my main computer for data transfer without having to use its GUI. As for the PIM stuff, I think the upgrades available online make it commensurate with other PDAs (at last).
