Windows Mobile phones, is it just a hardware difference?

Hi guys,

I'm trying to decide which phone to buy and I apologize in advance for really not understanding the technology behind all the different phones out there. I'm looking for a pda/smartphone that runs Windows Mobile.

What I would love help on is trying to understand what the difference is between phones that use the same windows operating system. Is is just a hardware difference, meaning different buttons, scroll bars, look/feel? In which case I'll probably pick the one that's the lightest and easy to fit in my purse.

Or does each mfg. actually do something unique to change the windows operating system so that some phones might be easier to use than others not because of hardware but because of some software integrati...

Smartphones don't have as many features as the PDA/Pocket PC's do. I'd recommend a Pocket PC to anyone, business or not.

the best thing to do is find a good wireless rep that knows about PDA's and smart phones. They will tell you what is the best for you. Then buy it from them do not go online or anywhere else because thats where you will have to go for help online or tech support. I sell for Verizon and any PDA's or smart phones I sell I do total support for. Even an hour long training if they want it. It may cost you more for the phone but the help you get from a good rep it will pay off.

Sadly, as a Verizon customer, I've noticed that many reps don't have a lot of PDA knowledge.
