I am thinking about getting one. How do they stack up. Such as the screen, Can you watch movies on them? How is the sound? I saw one on ebay for 50.00 bucks thinking about getting it. I have been looking at the joranda 720 and 690. Any help or comments are welcome.


Thanks

Chris

You'll get a lot of hits on this question I'm sure...opinions are like ____, everyone has one. So here is mine in 50 words or less:

Great for typing on.
Lousy for movies, DSTN screen stinks.
Mono sound is great with headphones, lousy through the unit speaker
J720 is smaller, more popular and more expensive.
720 runs WinCE 3.0, the 780 & J690 runs 2.11.

Want a movie machine...get a TFT pocketpc.

Hi, I have a MP790, which is basically a 780 with a 16MB(14MB usable) flash ROM and a newer WinCE3.0 OS (HPC2000).

I would strongly recommend for you to get a handson with both a MobilePro and a Jornada to have an actual feel of how big/small heavy/light these units are. Depending on your preferences, one of them might fit your bill.

How do you like the size? Does the screen seem bright enough? I have a Jornada 680 but I am looking at the NEC 780. By the way, you can get the ROM & RAM upgrades through unityelectronics.com

Did you buy through usedhandhelds.com or Unityelectronics.com ??
