Input about a Cingular 8125 Pocket PC

I am thinking of upgrading my current PDA to a Cingular 8125 Pocket PC. I think the technology has come far enough to make it a worth while investment, plus the idea of only carrying around 1 device instead of 2 (or more) is great. I'd be going from a Toshiba e755 to the 8125 and was wondering if anyone had some input or experience with it. It seems to have a lot of features like email, contacts, and task syncing that I'm interested in and it runs Pocket PC which means I can continue to run some custom apps I've designed.

The only real downside is that the e755 is a 400mhz processor and the 8125 is a 200mhz.

So what's your 2 cents or in this case 50 points.

Watch Question

Though the e755 is 400 MHz, it's an XScale procesor. The Cingular 8125 uses a 200 MHz OMAP processor. You can't compare performance based off the clock cycles, since they're entirely different architectures. From what I've read, the 8125 should actually outperform the e755, depending on which applications you're running.

Thanks for the input -- I went down and ordered a new unit -- it's got the 30 day return on it so I can mess around with it.
