Some fantastic new Pocket PC 2002s will hitting the street within the next few weeks and two of them are already available at Amazon for preorders:
Amazon.com already accepts preorders for the new Toshiba e740 which will comes with a 400 MHz XScale processor and integrated Bluetooth while Amazon.de accepts preorders for the Fujitsu Siemens Pocket Loox 600 which also comes with a 400 MHz XScale CPU and also integrates Bluetooth!
Lightweight, thin Pocket PC with 64 MB RAM and 32 MB ROM and blazing fast 400 MHz Xscale processor
Dual expansion capabilties: built-in CompactFlash and Secure Digital (SD) slots
Integrated wireless Bluetooth and WLAN capabilities
240 x 320 pixel TFT LCD screen displays more than 64,000 colors
These Pocket PCs are my personal kind of choice too as both will have built-in Bluetooth capabilities which is one of the most important features for me for sure. Bluetooth lets you connect with your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone very easy and it seems that both devices also offers the Bluetooth LAN profile which means that - in combination with a Bluetooth Access Point - you are also able to access company or home networks wireless through Bluetooth!
BTW: Both Amazon links are affiliate links so if you want to preorder it at Amazon, doing this through this links would helps me running PPCW.Net... ;-)

I read some comments that Toshiba will not ship any Xscale processor PDA before Compaq's Xscale iPAQs are ready because Intel & Compaq have an agreement that Compaq will be the first to ship Xscale PDAs. Compaq helped Intel to make the StrongARM architecture such a success so they are the first who get the Xscale...

If the Toshiba is supposed to have internal bluetooth, why does the picture above show something blue-ish stick out the top. Looks like a bluetooth SD-Card, don't you think?
