I don't need that. I need a stable system that doesn't bail out every few days. WM2003 and WM5 are notoriously slow, crash prine pieces of software.

I want a PDA that works, even after a week. My 6515 doesn't.

Well, there was a huge fuss a few years ago when ATi released their Imageon mobile processors for phones/PDAs... so the hardware's there.

...but no-one seems to a) stick it in a device b) program for it. With the PDA market shrinking at the rate it seems to be, I wouldn't hold your breath.

It's a shame, too... I loved the PPC2002 PDA I used to have and I really see where the platform /could/ go if only the resources were thrown into it.
