Are you sure Sprint unlim data for a PDA is only $15? $15 sounds about right for a regular phone, but not a data device. The carrier I work for now is priced the about the same as Cingy, even though we are using EV-DO.
I had always assumed there was a difference in cost between handset/PDA because either:

-A PDA would be using data more often on average than a handset (email, corporate net access, and such)


-A PDA could handle more data at any given time than a handset due to more hardware resources.

Or maybe its just because they figure if you are going to pay many hundreds of bucks for a PDA you can afford the extra 20 per month for net access? Can someone tell me?

Anyways... difference between the 8125 and PPC6700? Besides network technology and EDGE/EV-DO they are essentially the same device. Compare the HTC Wizard with the HTC Apache.

Sprint might offer faster data, but Cingy will give you more coverage if you travel.
