Symbian OS is relatively more stable than PocketPC... frankly though , i prefer programming in PocketPC , but i feel windoz are tremondously bug ridden and the SDK support is slow.
Symbian is catching up ...

Have been a PDA fetish person since the first programmable CASIO diary in the 80s and there was also the Apple Newton PDA. Then PDA became a joke for a while till Palm come along so again jump on the bandwagon. Then came CLIE. I have never used anything else after that ( 4 CLIE models) till today I still am using the NZ90G the "brick".(almost 2yrs now) I am not a big fan of the slim mini "pad" stuff as it is too fragile ( broke 2 of them ) The all-in-one NZ90 gets me through everything I need plus since I was using a Sony Digital Camera and Video...the memory stick issue was a no brainer. It is the only way to go for me when I want to SMS. Just use the bluetooth to connect to my mobile phone(s) and then type and send. No need to relearn bloody keystroke on some newer phone that does not keep to the same layout for buttons. Mp3 playback is a breeze. Convert video to watch on it is also easy. Tons of games to play. Ebook reading on a wide screen ( just like the Sony PSP ), Wireless connection to the internet or use of bluetooth to surf through the mobile phone. Gotten use to typing on it's built in keyboard. Travel programs to help organise things and stuff when travel. Works great with number of programs for work or leisure. Quite a good 1.2megapixel camera with flash for backup ad hoc shots on site. Video filming is just as easy. Voice recording at a touch of a button, view pictures from my magicstick I just shot with a Sony camera or via my CF card from my Nikon D70. Even used it as a remote control for my TV. Only thing bad about it is the battery life so I have 2 piece of that and also a power cord to use it with a AA battery pack. Unlike most who lament about it being so small ..well I am not that small a guy and the size is just fine by me. It is truely a sad day to hear Sony to give up on the CLIE. Was looking forward to the successor to the NZ90G. Guess there is still the VAIO (VGN-U8G ) ultra ortable touch screen PC (celeron) but at $3600+..that is abit too pricey and unpractical. But very drool inducing heheh....
Only had one Window CE before which was a Compaq. The first generation CE. It was crap. Junk it after a week.
What does the future holds for PDA? PDA phone? I hope not. If it was a PDA first then a mobile...fine I can tolerate it but if it is a phone first then PDA like what you see now....I will stick to my NZ90G or strap my desktop P4 PC on my back and carry that around instead LOL.

I lost my Tungsten T3 about 2 weeks back. SO was looking around for a replacement.
gone down to challenger to look & feel, wanting to try out PPC.(was with Palm OS for alongtime)
got hold of the popular XDAII, tried it for 1.5hours at the counter, the sales guy was very helpful. have gone thru those functions that i normally use, contacts, sms,..... realised that required 2 hands to operate and achieve what i want. and after asking around, found that PPC takes a while for new users to get familiar with.
so for me, Palm OS seems to suit me better now. But then the T5 don seem impressive, Sony no more, not much choice left
but was told that PalmOne is coming out with new model sometime soon. So i am waiting patiently for it. hope it will not be a disappointment.
how i wish Apple makes a comeback to the PDA market

A PDA only for PIM and storage doesn't hold true anymore.
When u have a toy, you're sure to want to use it for games.
