XScale vs. StrongARM PDA

Battling Brothers - XScale Or StrongARM Processor?

In the market for a new PDA, but don't know which one to buy? The choice just got murkier. Should you get an expensive model with the latest Intel XScale processor, or can you get by with a cheaper version based on its older brother, the Intel StrongARM processor? The new Intel XScale PXA-250 CPU is already cranking away at 400 MHz in the Asus MyPal A600 and the Fujitsu-Siemens (FSC) Pocket Loox. Yakumo's Alpha, has to make do with the widely used StrongARM processor SA-1110 and 206 MHz.
