Which is better, Windows CE or Windows Mobile?

In shopping for a new PDA/Cell phone (with a camera which takes Blackberry out of the running), I was wondering what were everyone's thoughts about the best OS? Will probably go with either Verizon or Sprint. I have an old Palm Vx which I want to drop off the highest building.

    Windows Mobile or Palm are equal IMO.  They each have good things.  If you need a particular feature it may be better supported with one or the other.  They both do a Vanilla synch pretty well.  I have seen many more issues lately with the Verizon Wireless synch.  It seems to corrupt records and cause the synch to fail.  Verizon seesm to lack answers other than resetting the device and reloading the data.  But if you are going to do a cable synch it should be fine.  If you are synching to exchange versus just Outllok, it may affect which you select.  Do you want to access public folders?  Third party software of interest?  All are factors to consider.

    I really like my blackberries.  I have carried the history of PDA's over the years except I didn't get a BB until this year.  I just got a second one  and I don't think I will go back to the Treo's or the Windows Mobile any time soon.
