A couple of weeks ago, I've invited you to join Spb's Pocket PC survey which finished last week. Now I received the results and one of the most important features for me was the fact that Spb tracked from where the participants came which provides me the opportunity to compare the regular Pocket PC user with the PPCW.Net visitor and the result is more than promising since it clearly shows how well educated PPCW.Net visitors are and what's the most important for scenarios them.

Current Pocket PC
The question was about the current Pocket PC used and the clear winner is the HP iPAQ platform. However, for PPCW.Net visitors the Pocket PC Phone Edition is more important than for all survey participants:

What is most and second important to you when choosing a Pocket PC?
While CPU speed and performance seems to be the most important for all participants, for PPCW.Net it's more important that their next Pocket PC is a Pocket PC Phone Edition:
