<a href="http://www.writingonyourpalm.net/column020311.htm">http://www.writingonyourpalm.net/column020311.htm</a><br /><br />It's Monday, and that means Jeff Kirvin has written another column at <a href="http://www.writingonyourpalm.com">Writing on your Palm</a>. This week he takes a look at the Toshiba e570, and while he seems to like the device, I doubt it'll supplant his Jornada. The truth is that it's a roughly comparable device with the except that its battery life is a little poorer, and there isn't a stowaway available for it yet which for people like Jeff and I is a major draw back. But don't take my word for it, read the article for yourself. <br /><br />"I recently got a Toshiba e570 from my friends at Microsoft to review, and I have to admit, I'm impressed. While this unit has a few flaws, it's a solid addition to the Pocket PC family, and I could see it being the perfect device for a lot of people, particularly former Palm users transitioning over from the Palm V or m500 lines."

Is the Toshiba really much smaller than the Jornada? From the specs they look just about the same. (I still don't have a chance to hold the Toshiba on my hands yet)

I've never held the Jornada and the e570 side to side, but here are some pics comparing it to the iPAQ and the Palm III.


Also, one other benefit I've noticed about the e570 - no dust under the screen (knock on wood!).
